August 4, 1901 Happy Birthday Louis Armstrong!
We flew back to NYC on the red eye last night and then I had to run out to a gig with The Stingers.
Wish I had more time to chat, but I’ll leave you with this cool link I found recently — The Louis Armstrong House Museum! Who knew?
Oh, also, I’ve got the Skip Brevis Band out gigging this week. Come on out and see us at The Red Lion (151 Bleecker Street) in NYC on Wednesday 8/8. We start @ 7 and do a lot of the covers from this blog as well as a healthy dose of original funk/rock/blues.
Matter of fact, right after that gig I’m running over to The Groove (125 MacDougal) with The Stingers for two Motown R&B sets til 1:00 a.m.
here ya go for Louis’ birthday:
