Atlantic City was once the place to catch celebrated performers like Pearl Bailey, Ray Charles, Sammy Davis Jr., and Billy Eckstine, who seemed to convey the very essence of black culture. Back then there were no casinos and there was not much integration, but there was plenty of good, soulful music. Join the Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble and return to the heyday of black nightlife in Atlantic City. Chicken Bone Beach music for everybody!
