TGIF July 23: The Screamin’ Primas

by The Editors on July 19, 2010

ScreaminprimasjpgThe Screamin’ Primas are apparently a tribute band to a “rat pack” era performer of whom we had never heard. Oh, we’d heard his legendary songs like Jump Jive and Wail, Just a Gigolo, and That Old Black Magic, but we’d never heard the name Louis Prima. Now, thanks to TGIF Jazz in the Park on Friday, July 23, 2010 those who make it to Poinsettia Park will know his music just a little better.

Last year, their TGIF debut offered a wacky version of Prima’s late 1950s Las Vegas Night Club show featuring his acclaimed singer-wife Keely Smith that captured all the energy, emotion and excitement of the original.

Wacky jazz works. We guess. Show begins at 6 PM in Carlsbadistan’s Poinsettia Park. Don’t be late.
