Celebrating Satchmo And America On July Fourth
Bria Skonberg and her Hot Five band came to the Louis Armstrong House Museum to celebrate Satchmo’s (and the nation’s) birthday on July 4 in Corona. Part of the Hot Jazz/Cool Garden Summer Concert Series, the event was well attended. Guests ate Armstrong’s favorite dish, red beans and rice and topped it off with birthday cake. The Hot Jazz/Cool Garden series continues with Jon-Erik Kellso and The EarRegulars on July 20, and the Peter and Will Anderson Sextet on August 17.
