Pete Kelly's Blues
Pete Kelly plays coronet at a standard “speakeasy” 417 Cherry Street Kansas City where the whisky matches the color of your money. It’s a fairly quiet crib with never any real serious trouble, it’s the kind of place where the local prohibition officer can bring their wife’s to. The lease is owned by George Lupo, a fat friendly little guy who has only two things in his life, dollars and cents.
Pete Kelly’s Blues was set in the roaring 20’s and complemented Jack Webb’s love of jazz music with each show including two numbers as part of the story.
