Louis Prima Jr.
Louis Prima Jr. is stretching the boundaries between the swing and rock eras. With a powerhouse eight-piece, brass infused band called The Witnesses, and renowned singer, actress and musical theater performer Sarah Spiegel sharing vocal duties, LPJ is turning up the fire and adding blistering energy to the music and style that his father, Louis Prima Sr., made famous.
Bringing a new energy and current attitude to the music, Prima Jr. and his band are less concerned about reliving the past than about creating a future for it. More than a tribute show (like the kind you might see in a supper club) he has created a bona fide rock act that pays tribute in a concert atmosphere. Anyone who comes to hear a mere “tribute show” should be prepared to have their socks knocked off – or stay away. Prima Jr. isn’t keen on nostalgia – he comes to rock!
For five decades, Louis Prima Sr. stayed at the forefront of the entertainment world, with his inimitable style and musical prowess. Now, 34 years after Prima Sr. passed away, one thing is clear: the world still has a voracious appetite to laugh, be happy, dance and “Jump Jive An’ Wail.”
