Kayre Morrison and I will next join Dean's 10–piece dance orchestra aboard HMS Queen Mary at the 6th Annual Queen Mary Art Deco Festival in Long Beach on Saturday, September 4 for the Grand Art Deco Ball, "an evening of cinematic perfection—the perfect representation of the Queen Mary's golden age."

Festival goers can dance until midnight to the music of Dean Mora and the Queen Mary Orchestra, playing big band music from the era between the World Wars. (Proceeds from the ball will be used for the conservation and restoration of the Birds of the Old World/Birds of the New World artwork, pictured below, located in the Grand Salon).
