Drew Nugent & The Midnight Society: 1920’s New Year’s Eve
Celebrate New Years Eve in style at World Cafe Live with Philadelphia’s premiere roaring 1920’s jazz band, Drew Nugent & the Midnight Society! Come dressed in your best 1920’s attire as we ring in 2024!
Drew Nugent is a jazz musician and composer from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His primary instruments are piano, trumpet, voice, and believe it or not, the tea kettle!
Nugent and the band specialize in playing in the traditional “hot” jazz style of the 1920s. His band, known as the Midnight Society, is regarded as one of the best in the business, and has been together for over 10 years. Under Drew’s leadership, they bring forth an authentic, yet original approach to an art form over 100 years old.
Nugent’s inspiration comes from a who’s who list of great performers, composers, and musicians, both obscure and known going back a full century. Although a lot of this music may seem forgotten in many circles, it is alive and well with Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society!
