The National Prohibition Act, known informally as the Volstead Act aim was to make drinking intoxicating liquids illegal, and the prohibition of consuming alcoholic drinks became law on 17th January 1920. The Anti-Saloon League's Wayne Wheeler conceived and drafted the bill, which was named after Andrew Volstead, who was the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, who managed the legislation. The thirteen years of dry times ended on 5th December1933. Jazz trumpeter Oran ThaddeusHot Lips Page's R& B romper They Raided The Joint kicks off the 100 per cent R&B booze party he luckily escapes the law I was over in the corner, high as I could be, and thankfully Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five's House Party was free from the law fix me a drink, it's gotta be rot ....I wanna get high. Across town Gay Crosse and His Good Humor Six were living high at the Saturday Night Fish Fry, and Jesse Allen is reminiscing about the evenings fun during What A Party. The cork is popped several times during the alcohol enhanced parties attended by; The Bel-Aires who indulge in White Port & Lemon Juice, The Platters are gluten's for a hangover as the drink and sing the Beer Barrel Boogie, Mr. Swing with Bobby Platers' Orchestra drink and party with restraint and only sing about the Beer Bottle Boogie, however The Robins have drank to excess and all they have is Empty Bottles.
