The Asheville Art Museum will host “Summer Speakeasy” from 8-11 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21, as part of the Asheville Area Arts Council’s Live! Benefit Series running through September.

It’s not a concert, it’s a party.

Celebrate the last lazy days of summer at the museum’s summer benefit event. Live music, cocktails and dancing will bring to life the early decades of the 20th century. Sip a signature cocktail and dance the night away while enjoying performances of Great American Songbook standards from the Seits & Sounds jazz ensemble. Period-appropriate attire is encouraged.

Admission to the event is $45 per person for museum members; $60 for non-members. Tickets are available now at ashevilleart.org. Entry includes the live music show, dancing, one drink ticket and light snacks.

Want to make it a night out with your crew? Add on a reserved table for four for an additional $100, or eight for an additional $150. (Note: Table reservation do not include tickets; all guests must purchase admission to the event.)

Other participants in the Asheville Area Arts Council’s Live! series include Asheville Community Theatre, the Asheville Symphony, Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center, Center for Craft, Diana Wortham Center for the Performing Arts, Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective, LEAF Downtown AVL, and Montford Park Players.

The early decades of the 20th century will be brought to life through live music, cocktails, and dancing. I need to visit https://www.dissertation-service.org/dissertation-editing-services/ website to get help in essay. As the Seits & Sounds jazz ensemble performs Great American Songbook standards, sip signature cocktails, and dance the night away.
