Ted Lewis Museum Paves the Way for Melody’s Big Return. We all need the quality of “happy”. One man has picked up the” torch of happiness.” He is charging ahead, full speed. His name is Maestro Joseph Rubin. This man is worthy of all the support we can give. Please contribute to this tax deductible event. Maestro Rubin is the curator of a new museum. Even with such a worthy cause, funds are tight. It is called the Ted Lewis Museum. It is located in Circleville, Ohio. The museum is epoch making.
The Ted Lewis Museum Marks the Official Return of Beautiful Music!
Theodore Leopold Friedman (June 6, 1890 – August 25, 1971), known as Ted Lewis, was an American entertainer, bandleader, singer, and musician. He fronted a band and touring stage show. His act presented a combination of jazz, comedy, and nostalgia. Ted was a hit with the American public before and after World War II. He was known by the moniker “Mr. Entertainment” or Ted “Is Everybody Happy?”
“Sometimes during the early thirties, I (David Rubinoff) was doing a benefit for one of the big hotels in San Francisco along with Ted Lewis and Benny Goodman. We teamed up just for fun and marched through the lobby of the hotel. Lewis was in the lead with his top hat and cane. He was singing, Me and My Shadow. The guests loved our shenanigans. We had lots of fun in those days.”
It about time we all started to have fun! This is a once in lifetime event. I (David Ohrenstein) am honored to be part of it: On June 2, I will accompany world renowned violinist, maestro Steven Greenman. Our concert will include a special arrangement I made with Rubinoff of the Fiddler on the Roof. Also on June 2, I will lecture about my association with Rubinoff and His Violin. The lecture will take place at 6:30 PM. Questions from the audience will be entertained. To hear the finest music and have a wonderful time, you don’t even have to go abroad. Also, in Florida from Christmas 2017 to Easter 2018, I will be featured on the wonderful newly rebuilt Steinway Grand at the Gasparilla Inn located on the isle of Boca Grande Fl. The engagement is for six nights weekly. It will be my 9th year. Above all, please come to Circleville where the real musical fireworks will take place.
