  • Denny puts on a consistent show that informs people about the development of technology and the modern era through stories and examples. He plays edison wax cylinders, films from the 40s, and shows that our pre-conceived notions about the past often leave us underinformed about the world we live in today. When it feels like the vastness of human understanding is available at one's fingertips, it is amazing how small or old or young one might feel when confronted with the simple reality that you simply aren't aware of the things that still make modern society work.
  • This was so much fun to attend!! Danny Daniels is very knowledgeable about history and the objects that have come from them across time... a warm, inviting atmosphere coupled with many a joke, great conversation learning more all along the way, and actually getting to physically touch and feel history... I would do this again anytime! Attended one of his speakeasies with a boyfriend as a date :)
