|Event Name:||Live Music: A Tribute to Louis Armstrong|
|Event Description:||The Aiken Performing Arts Group presents A Tribute to Louis Armstrong "What A Wonderful World".
Louis Armstrong is perhaps the most important figure in the history of American music and is certainly one of the most recognizable. He wrote many jazz songs that have become standards and won 11 Grammy Awards as well as the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Longineu Parsons is one of the world's finest trumpeters and when he interprets Louis, he goes far beyond what can be studied and learned. The way he touches the trumpet and growls his vocals is a though he is channeling the great master of American music.
In this spellbinding tribute concert, Longineu Parsons and his band will lovingly perform Louis Armstrong classics such as "Basin St Blues", "Hello Dolly" and of course "What A Wonderful World".
Longineu has electrified audiences with his Louis Armstrong tribute from Europe to South America to Carnegie Hall.
Join us on March 23 & 24, 2023.
