Arne Fogel Presents: The Songs Louis Armstrong Sang

Aug 24, 2023 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Dinner and cocktail seating and service begins 1 hour before showtimes.

Laid-Back, Nostalgic, Swingy, Fun

Louis Armstrong was the most influential figure in 20th-century music, and his singing has been absorbed and reflected in the styles of just about anybody who has ever stood in front of a microphone ever since. Arne Fogel provides a fun retrospective, with these memorable Armstrong melodies: A Kiss To Build A Dream On, Lazy River, Ain’t Misbehavin’, All Of Me, Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans, Hello, Dolly! I Cover The Waterfront, and many more.
