Live Window Revue: The Harlem James Gang

9 1 2011

Harlem James Gang

Always entertaining, The Harlem James Gang twists yesterday with today to create a pastiche of song, dance and incredible style.  Today they joined us on 5th/58th to share some laughs and mishaps.


BG:
Hey guys.  Aren’t you looking dapper today? Are you getting excited for next week? Will this be your first time performing in windows?
THJG: Yup! We thought we’d get it done in style.

BG: It is a good place to start.  Speaking of style… what’s your worst childhood fashion memory?
THJG: Collectively we would have to say parachute pants!  They were great for breakdancing but not for fashion.

BG: Understandably. However I imagine they made quite the impact.  So when it comes to breakdancing (or dancing in general), any performance mishaps you care to share with 5th/58th?
Dandy Wellington: We were performing at a private event and during our song Strut I lost control of my cane and dropped it off the stage.  Without thinking, I jumped off the stage after it.  It was pretty embarassing and, in hindsight, I should’ve just kept going… but, well, that’s show biz as Murray Hill would say.

BG: Good gracious. The pains we go to look just right…. so are there any favorite on-stage looks?
Jelly Jells: There was this fantastic alien costume that I had Dangerkat wear for one of my solo shows.  It was so Jelly.

BG: Oh I can’t even imagine.  What about guilty pleasures?  What does it for you?
Mr. Woo: McDonald’s
Jelly Jells: Soy Chai Latte’s from Starbucks
Dandy Wellington: Eating out! Everyone loves eating!!  I’m also obsessed with looking at the Bergdorf Goodman menswear windows.
Jelly Jells: Yes. Excessive shopping without purchasing. But now I can thanks to THJG!
