Louis Armstrong House Museum Starts Hot Jazz/Cool Gardens Concert Series July 4

    Two very special birthdays are celebrated on July 4th. This year, the Louis Armstrong House Museum will observe Satchmo’s entry into the world with live music and tasty treats. The Hot Jazz/Cool Garden Summer Concert Series kicks off this Thursday with Bria Skonberg and her “Hot Five”. A native of British Columbia, this trumpeter/vocalist/composer was recently nominated “Up and Coming Jazz Artist of the Year” by the Jazz Journalists Association, due in large part to her tremendous success since moving to New York City about two years ago. When not grooving to the music, attendees can enjoy Louis Armstrong’s favorite red beans and rice recipe, sweet tea and, yes, cake. Satchmo couldn’t ask for a better birthday party, and since this is an afternoon event, attendees will have plenty of time to travel to nighttime fireworks displays related to the day’s other major birthday celebration. Details: Hot Jazz/Cool Garden Summer Concert, Louis Armstrong House Museum, 34-56 107th St., Corona, July 4, 2 pm – 4 pm, $20 with special advance tickets promotions.
