You are invited to the Cicada Club debut of Pete Jacobs and his spectacular 16-piece big-band. Interspersing the hits of the Thirties and Forties, along with late-breaking news-stories from the war-years, as well as several original songs, and even some 1940-style radio commercials, listening to this band is like taking a time-machine back to a World War Two U.S.O. show.
With their three young female vocalists, a hot, driving rhythm section, and eight-piece horn section, the "classic-swing" sound is both full and authentic!. Add in their "armed-forces style" khaki-colored uniforms, it's all there!
"BROADCASTING LIVE, all across America, to all the ships at sea, and to all our boys in uniform stationed abroad, this is WARTIME RADIO REVUE!"

With the grandeur of a classic Hollywood musical from the thirties, The Cicada Club is a most unique experience that transports you back in time to the glamorous days of Hollywood's golden age of nightclubs.
Featuring the finest dance orchestras and entertainment, The Cicada Club is unlike any night on the town you have ever experienced.
Situated in the famed Art Deco Oviatt building, downtown Los Angeles' historic Lalique palace, The Cicada Club is a place fitting for experiencing an elegant romantic evening.
Originally built as a top-of-the-line haberdashery in 1928, The Cicada Club retains much of the original design that the French designers and artisans of the time created. This spacious nightclub features fine dining on the main floor as well as the mezzanine that overlooks the entire club, an Art Deco mezzanine bar and lounge plus patio seating in the forecourt lobby.
No setting in the entire city is more spectacular. The opulent dining and showroom, with giant old-growth oak columns that feature pairs of angels holding bells and gold-leaf ceilings, compliment the fine vintage entertainment and patrons dressed in their elegant evening attire.
