Today In Black History • January 5, 1869 Matilda Sissieretta Joyner Jones, opera soprano and businesswoman, was born in Portsmouth, Virginia but raised in Providence, Rhode Island. Jones began her formal study of music at the Providence Academy of Music in 1883 and in the late 1880s studied at the New England Conservatory of Music. She made her New York City debut in 1888 and made successful tours of the Caribbean that year and in 1892. On June 15, 1892, Jones became the first African American to sing at the Music Hall in New York (now Carnegie Hall). She also performed for Presidents Benjamin Harrison, Grover Cleveland, William Mckinley, and Theodore Roosevelt. By 1896, Jones found that access to most American classical concert hall was limited by her race and therefore she formed the Black Patti Troubadours, a variety act made up of singers, jugglers, comedians, and dancers. The revue was successful enough to provide Jones an income in excess of $20,000. Jones retired from performing in 1915. She died ...

African American HISTORY MOMENT May 23, 1921: Shuffle Along, the first black hit musical, opened at the 63rd St. Music Hall in New York City. Shuffle Along is an African American musical revue with music and lyrics by Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake, and a connecting plot about a mayoral race, written by Flournoy Miller and Aubrey Lyles. The piece premiered on Broadway in 1921, running for 504 performances, which was an unusually long run during that decade, launching the careers of Josephine Baker, Adelaide Hall and Paul Robeson, and becoming such a hit that it caused "curtain time traffic jams" on 63rd Street. PLOT: Sam and Steve both run for mayor in Jimtown, USA. If either one wins, he will appoint the other his chief of police. Sam wins with the help of a crooked campaign manager. Sam keeps his promise to appoint Steve as chief of police, but they begin to disagree on petty matters. They resolve their differences in a long, comic fight. As they fight, their opponent for the mayoral position, Harry Walto ...
(Bruce Figler) In my first half hour today, I'll be playing no less than 3 talented NYC based bands and artists (Garland Jeffreys, Mink DevIlle and Fun) and it got me thinking. If there was a Music Hall Of Fame for NYC based artists only, who'd be in it? Some rules, let's say from 1960 on. Let's say these are bands mainly known for their legacy in New York City and not bands who lived here for a year and moved on... and third, we are talking NYC (including the boroughs) and not the surrounding environs like NJ, LI or CT. Ok, I'll go first. I nominate Lou Reed.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Troy Theatre Ensemble Last year it was New York City in the Roaring Twenties for the Troy Theatre Ensemble as they staged Thoroughly Modern Millie. This year they’ve jumped across the pond and a couple decades further back for a show in the Music Hall Royale. It’s Rupert Holmes’ (Curtains, The Pina Colada Song) musical The Mystery of Edwin Drood based on Charles Dickens’ last manuscript – a musical murder mystery that truly is a mystery to all living beings, as Dickens died before the manuscript was completed, and no one knows for sure who killed Edwin Drood, or if he’s even dead. Rupert Holmes handles this mystery in a clever way. Halfway through the show, the audience gets to vote on who they think is the murderer. Then the cast, playing music hall actors who are portraying characters in the Dickens story, perform the remainder of the show based on who was voted the murderer -- forcing the cast members to prepare for dozens of different possible endings. Those c ...
