SUMMARY

New York-area club date musicians play from memory, often drawing on repertoires spanning fifty years of popular music to produce arrangements on the spot. Impressive as their skills are, though, they occupy an ambivalent position: their art must be background, never overshadowing the event, whether a wedding, a bar mitzvah, or a debutante ball. Their artistic and musical skills, finely tuned for club date gigs, are rarely even noticed, much less remarked upon, by their audiences. Club Date Musicians is a pioneering ethnomusicological portrait focusing on the three hundred to five hundred New York musicians whose primary income is derived from playing private parties. Interviewing more than a hundred musicians and observing more than forty performances, Bruce MacLeod lets the musicians speak for themselves. MacLeod examines the relation of audience to performer, the ensembles' social and musical organization, the musicians' economic and social status, and the process of change within the musical culture. The reader will discover why New York club date musicians don't use written music, how rock and roll has affected the occupation, and why the stereotypical picture of the bored, inept club date performer is unfair.MacLeod, Bruce A. is the author of 'Club Date Musicians Playing the New York Party Circuit' with ISBN 9780252019548 and ISBN 0252019547.
