The Whole World Smiles With You

Step into the Divaville Lounge on August 10 from 2-4 pm, as we pay tribute to a giant of popular music: Louis Armstrong. Arguably the most important American musician of the 20th century, Armstrong's influence on jazz is hard to measure. We'll learn about the revolutionary New Orleans jazz scene which Armstrong helped create, hear some of his earliest work on cornet with King Oliver and with the Hot Fives, and play favorites from Armstrong's many years of superstardom. Tune in for an afternoon of Satchmo classics!
