• Only a few hundred lucky souls were able to pack themselves into the Last Night at Sofia's, for the farewell performance by Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks at the club underneath the Hotel Edison where they played twice a week for seven years, until the restaurant lost its lease last summer. That final show featured a calvacade of stars from stage and screen making surprise guest appearances with the Nighthawks. Among them were The Honey Taps, a song and dance troupe that conjures up the glory days of 1920’s show girls and chorines – Lea is always proud to perform with her fellow "Honeys" and with Vince and the gang! The Honey Taps were proud to share this performance as part of the documentary “There’s a Future in the Past” about the hot jazz bandleader and preservationist Vince Giordano and his amazing band The Nighthawks.
