Richard Halpern passes along the following updated information:

Richard Halpern in:
Al Jolson: "The Jazz Singer", 1927, and The Great War

RICHARD HALPERN gives a tribute to "The World's Greatest Entertainer", AL JOLSON and Warner Brothers' supreme triumph, 1927's "The Jazz Singer" on that film's 90th anniversary.
The year 1927 also produced many songs that JOLSON sang throughout his career, and some of those will be showcased as well.
HALPERN also gives tribute to JOLSON and his songs from World War I (The Great War) which celebrates its centennial this year.
Joining RICHARD HALPERN for this stellar evening will be the popular vaudeville team of EVANS & ROGERS providing their special brand of vocal harmonies on several JOLSON tunes as well as some WWI favorites and even an appearance by "EDDIE CANTOR".
Florida's very own NIGEL DREINER ("Mr. Sunshine") rounds out the performing roster, singing a selection of JOLSON favorites and more.
Musical accompaniment for this evening's performances will be provided by the BLUE SERENADERS, RICHARD HALPERN'S 5-piece dance orchestra, backing up the vocalists and playing some hot and snappy vintage instrumentals for listening and dancing pleasure.
