Event takes place at Christ Church Anglian, 2020 Bull Street
As the rise of rock n roll led to the decline of jazz, Savannah’s
son, Hollywood composer Johnny Mercer, found new fame
in his career as a frequent guest of the famous talk show
circuit of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Join us for coffee as David
Oppenheim, Mercer historian, shares part of his collection of famous and forgotten
small-screen clips of Savannah’s son with talk-show legends
Nat King Cole, Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Carson and others.
$5 of every ticket sold will benefit the Scholarship Program at Portman’s Music of Savannah.
