Coney Events: Mr. Victoria at the Freak Bar!

This week a load of events brought to you by the Coney Island USA's cultural experience.  Micheal W. Haar plays the real oldies of the 20th century from original old time records.
Native New Yorker and professional barber, Michael W. Haar has been a discerning collector and provider of early 20th century music since the age of 19. With nearly 1,000 original discs and cylinders from the Acoustic-Recording Era (1890-1925), "Mister Victrola" has been cranking out these nostalgic tunes over the years at indoor and outdoor events across NYC. He was given the honor to provide the classic soundtrack to last summer's 82nd Anniversary of the Coney Island Cyclone and this Friday, the 'cranky' DJ returns with Popular Dance songs from the turn-of-the-20th century through the late 1920's. All original records will be spun on two 1925 talking machines powered only by the cranking of these phonographs.

Come on and hear "Alexander's Ragtime Band", "Sidewalks of New York", "Meet me down at Luna, Lena" and so much more!! You can preview the music on Mister Victrolas weekly radio show, The Ragged 
Phonograph Program on EastVillageRadio.com.
