The Queen Mary’s 2015 All-American July 4th Celebration will be a festive all-age party presenting 100 years of American spirit and tradition. The decades will come alive through entertainment, music, activities, food, and fun the whole family will enjoy. As night falls, The Queen Mary’s decks will become front row seats to one of the best fireworks shows in Southern California.

A turn-of-the-century Traveling Circus tops the list of attractions and includes vintage performers, carnival games, and train rides.  Visitors can flap and Lindy Hop through the 1920’s at the Gatsby Garden Party where professional dancers will set the stage. Step into a prohibition speak-easy where a secret password is the ticket to Crazy Rhythm live jazz and cabaret featuring the Satin Dollz. The Queen Mary’s salute to the 1940’s and WWII will showcase Peter Jacobs Wartime Revue and live performances by the USO Dollz and the Swingin’ Hollywood Hot Shots.

The decades roll-on with the Nifty Fifty Drive-In Diner playing authentic 50s jukebox hits, Motor City Magic live on stage paying tribute to Motown’s greatest, the Disco Kings groovin’ through the 70s and a day flow 80s arcade. Round out the century with a 90s laser tag rave and Country music tailgate. Themed dining, era-specific libations, strolling entertainers, and family activities add to the All-American 4th of July splendor.

“We’re outdoing ourselves with a Fourth of July Jubilee like no other.  The Queen Mary is the only place in Southern California to truly celebrate one hundred years of Americana showcasing the best fireworks show in town,” says Steve Sheldon, Director of Entertainment Events for The Queen Mary.  “A legendary floating party through 10 decades, the merriest revue of the century!”

Yamashiro Hollywood’s Guest Chef Series returns for its 3rd installment during the LA Icon’s 100 year anniversary. Executive chef Brock Kleweno welcomes retro pop soul duo David & Devine, whose original works – to be performed live – have inspired the five-course dinner they will accompany.

“Food and music have always been connected for me. Each dish I make should have a verse and chorus, harmony and pitch. I’m so excited to conceptualize dishes that are inspired by David & Devine’s original music, as I’ve been a huge fan of them for years now. Adding to that, the fact that I get to work with Chef Betty Fraser – who is beyond talented – I feel very lucky. It’s going to be a great night of music, food, and friends,” said Kleweno.

Chef Brock’s Modern American 5-course menu will be accompanied with wine pairings and highlighted by a taste of Chef Betty Fraser’s Grub.

Guest Chef Series III Menu

  • First Course: surf & turf of caviar and violet-mustard filet tartare
  • Second Course: artichoke soup & hearts of palm salad
  • Third Course: Chef Betty Fraser’s “N’Awlins Creole Shrimp”
  • Fourth Course: wild boar osso buco with mole
  • Fifth Course: Yamashiro birthday cake, homemade cookies & ice cream

About David and Devine

Pop-Soul music is currently all the rage, and L.A.-based David & Devine are the soulful duo consisting of Candace Devine (vocals) and Dave Yaden (piano-vocals). As a new school act, they have enjoyed radio airplay for their song “Leave The Light On” while being signed to top Hollywood talent agency ICM and working with a well-known L.A. music manager – all without the benefit of a major label deal.

About Chef Betty Fraser and Grub

Betty Fraser is co-owner (with Denise DeCarlo) of the popular, LA-based As You Like It Catering and award-winning restaurant Grub. Hidden-away in a converted 1920’s duplex centered in the heart of Hollywood’s hip Post-Production District, Grub’s guests are treated to slowly rotating ceiling fans, beautiful hardwood floors, a wall of windows looking out to the outdoor patio seating area and an eclectic array of artwork celebrating local artists that is best described as “contemporary-kitsch.” Grub is a perpetual sea of activity with capacity crowds treated like members of the family while being served fresh, delicious and fun food designed to comfort the soul and put a smile on the face.

About Yamashiro

Yamashiro – translated to “mountain palace” – broke ground in 1911 and was completed in 1914 as a residence for the Bernheimer brothers. Housing a priceless collection of Asian treasures, the building was designed as an exact replica of a palace located in the mountains near Kyoto, Japan.

During the “Golden Age” of Hollywood, Yamashiro served as the ultra-exclusive social house for the “Club of the Four Hundred”, comprised of the era’s most famous and influential stars and movie moguls. The structure and its grounds served as a boy’s military school, and then apartments, before being acquired in 1948 by Thomas O. Glover, who discovered the beauty beneath the disrepair and refurbished the space. Currently owned by Thomas Y. Glover, son of Thomas O. Glover, Yamashiro is flourishing 60 years later as an Asian-inspired Los Angeles institution.

Executive chef Brock Kleweno has helmed the kitchen at Yamashiro for eight years and leads a dynamic culinary team in creating Asian-inspired Californian fare.
