TOMS RIVER, NJ – The Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra will be performing at the Ocean County College Center for the Arts on April 6th.

“Join the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra for a musical time machine back to the fun and excitement of the early 20th century. Tap your feet to the syncopated stylings of the early 1900s – from tongue-in-cheek vocal numbers to the classics of Scott Joplin and George M. Cohan, and even pop favorites by The Beatles,” an event bulletin read for the performance. “Watch classic silent films underscored by a live twelve-person orchestra with live music and sound effects! It’s a program sure to make both young and old smile from ear to ear. Grab your bowler hat and suspenders, park your Model T down the street, and enjoy a trip back in time with Peacherine.”

Tickets are on sale for $18 each.

“Their programs highlight the music of the late 1800s and early 1900s, with selections by composers such as Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, W.C. Handy, Eubie Blake, George M. Cohan, and of course, the King of Ragtime, Scott Joplin. Their silent film programs feature the biggest names of the day (Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd Laurel & Hardy, Douglas Fairbanks, and more), and have earned them worldwide recognition and fame,” the orchestra describes itself on their website.
