The Midnight Cool Revue brings to life the characters and times of The Midnight Cool through period music, photography and storytelling, and commemorates the hundredth anniversary (April 6th, 2017) of the United States’ entry into WWI. The musical portion of the program will feature Peelle’s husband Ketch Secor of two time-Grammy award-winning group Old Crow Medicine Show performing WWI era songs on an antique guitjo. An original 1919 Edison Amberola Cylinder player (featured in the action of the novel) will also play a part in the program demonstrating some of the recorded patriotic propaganda songs of the era. As expected Peelle will read an excerpts from the book, as well as present recruitment posters and discuss the role of war propaganda in that time.
