Jazz at the Victorian Gardens

After our brunch show at the Lambs Club, we darted towards Central Park for a very special event: Avalon Jazz Band in concert at the Victorian Gardens at Wollman Rink. Victorian Gardens, called “the best kept secret in New York”, is a family amusement park with one-of-a-kind handcrafted rides, including a hand painted classic swing ride (Tatiana’s favorite) and intensely entertaining Whac-A-Mole games. We performed Gypsy jazz and swing right in the middle of dancing toddlers, kids screaming on rides and parents filming their little ones trying to crawl unto the stage. It was surprisingly a great audience and we were very happy to add some music to such a lovely “happiest-place-on-earth”. After our concert, we enjoyed the rides and ate ice cream while the sun was setting on Central Park. Definitely a top ten New York moment.
