Add to Calendar 04-07-2013 04-07-2013 15 Hot Jazz / Cool Garden Celebrate Louis Armstrong's Birthday and America's Birthday when the Louis Armstrong House Museum as the Armstrong House kicks off its Hot Jazz / Cool Garden Summer Concert Series! Sample some of Louis' favorite foods -- red beans n' rice, sweet tea and birthday cake. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy Bria's Hot Five with Bria Skonberg in Louis's Garden. Advance Single Tickets: $18 and include Historic House Tour Pass (good for 6 months). Tickets can be purchased online at LouisArmstrongHouse.org. Hailing from Chilliwack, BC, and now living in NYC, award winning trumpeter/vocalist/ composer Bria Skonberg is "poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation." She recently earned a 2013 Jazz Journalists? Association nomination for ?Up and Coming Jazz Artist of The Year.? Bria got her start as a professional big band singer at age sixteen doubling on trumpet and has since performed as a bandleader and guest artist all over the world. Since arriving in New York two years ago she has appeared in concert halls and clubs such as Symphony Space, Birdland, The Iridium, and Dizzy's. Best known for her knowledge of classic jazz and pursuit of worldwide adventure, she is creating a style all her own rooted in swampy New Orleans grooves, featuring world percussion and contemporary soul influenced vocals. Her debut American release, SO IS THE DAY, peaked at #7 on the US National jazz charts and features an all-star ensemble including John Pizzarelli, Victor Goines and Wycliffe Gordon. Released on Random Act Records, 10% of album sales go to support the Jazz Foundation of America. She currently tours the world, headlining major clubs and festivals as well as programming music education workshops for all ages. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=139098 Louis Armstrong House Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
