There's a bit of 21st-century technology hidden onstage during Walter & David's performances at La Brique Steak House.
But aside from that, as far as the duo is concerned, it's 1947.
Walter Lakota and Dave Alcantar, who both sing and play multiple instruments, put on a big band jazz show the fourth Friday of every month at the Huntington Beach restaurant. Typically, they're joined by two or three other horn players, but thanks to some fancy programming on Alcantar's electronic keyboard, you might mistake it for a whole orchestra.
"We're probably the smallest big band in the world," Lakota said.
The musicians aren't the only ones who get into the '40s spirit. La Brique's staff clears out several tables to provide a dance floor, and audience members — including younger ones — have been known to break into steps from more than 50 years ago.
