It was in 1944 that Bing Crosby made the Johnny Mercer tune, Accentuate The Positive, a hit in film and on radio. It later became known as one of the songs that got Americans through World War Two. The popular songs of the day, most often written for Broadway, became an unofficial catalogue of music that comforted and connected Americans at home and abroad during hard times—the Spanish Influenza epidemic, the Second World War, Prohibition and the Great Depression.
Join us at the Club as we accentuate the positive for 2022 and look forward to the New Year. Everyone is invited for a reception with refreshments served against the backdrop of the festive evening lights along the Embarcadero and the Bay Bridge followed by a performance featuring the Konrad Paszkudzki Trio and special guests Gretje Angell and Adrian Cunningham.
