GLADYS BENTLEY (1907-1960) began her career singing and playing piano at rent parties and the legendary speakeasies of "Jungle Alley" at 133rd. She appeared at Harry Hansberry's "Clam House" on 133rd Street, one of New York City's most notorious gay speakeasies, in the 1920s, and headlined in the early thirties at Harlem's Ubangi Club, where she was backed up by a chorus line of drag queens. She played piano and sang lyrics to popular tunes of the day in a deep, growling voice.
