A Jazz Tribute to the Three Louis.  Vocalist – saxophonist Danny Bacher performs a tribute to the three Louis; Armstrong, Prima and Jordan.  The performance pays homage to the era of jive with a dollop of Dixieland.  “It is about making hot music but staying cool, about cutting up while maintaining effortless self – control, about having a blast with friends” Stephen Holden, The New York Times.  The performance will be held in the Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center.  Tickets for Swing that Music!
