      Chasin’ Dem Blues: Untold Story of Paramount Records

      Chasin’ Dem Blues: Untold Story of Paramount Records. January 17-March 22, 2020. Stackner Cabaret, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, Patty and Jay Baker Theater Complex, 108 E. Wells St. This revival of a Rep premiere (previously titled Grafton City Blues) explores the inspiring story of Grafton, Wisconsin’s, Paramount Records. A recording label that, at the height of the jazz and blues age, became for a brief, bright few years, the leading label for recording artists of color in the Midwest—and broke down small-town racial barriers along the way. Artists such as Louis Armstrong, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Alberta Hunter and Ma Rainey all recorded there. This exuberant musical celebration of some of the greatest jazz and blues music features four sensational quadruple threat performers guiding the journey through story and song.
