We’ve seen Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses live several times and he never fails to deliver a high energy show loaded with infectious hits from both his father’s era and the rock and roll landscape he grew up in. We recently caught his show at the Cutting Room in New York City where he performs almost every year. He and the band were hopping as usual and the whole room was swaying. I cannot adequately express the joy and love of music that he brings to his audience. The video below can’t even truly depict the feeling at one of his live concerts, but it can give you a taste.
You can also get his two albums (Return of the Wildest and Blow!). Check out his website http://louisprimajr.com for more info. They are in New Jersey for a couple of dates (Asbury Park on August 13, Morristown on August 16), in Bay Shore NY on August 19 and at the Chicago City Winery on August 28. They are appearing for New Years Week in Laughlin, Nevada. Catch them soon and you’ll agree. There is no better way to spend an evening than with Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses in the house!
