LOUIS PRIMA GETS STAR
ON HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME
LET'S GO! JULY 25th

I've been to two "Star Unveilings" on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and they were both incredible experiences I'll never forget. So I was thinking it would be great fun to get a group together and head on down for this one. Louis Prima has given us so much GREAT music to dance to, let's celebrate.

Here's the info I got:

My name is Diana Karaca, and I work with Nina Gordon Public Relations. We represent swing singer and trumpeter, Louis Prima, Jr., son of the famous "King of Swing" musician, Louis Prima Sr.

Louis, Jr. will not only be accepting his late father's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Sunday, July 25 @ 11:30 am, but will be giving fans and audiences a legendary performance on the streets of Hollywood with his band, The Witnesses featuring Sarah Spiegel.

We thought you and your swing and tap dancers would be interested in joining us for this event. We and Louis, Jr.'s team would love to have them come out and celebrate this very special occasion. Would you please pass on enclosed info to your dancers and anyone you feel would be interested.

Many thanks for your help!

Diana Karaca

So... here are all the details:

LOUIS PRIMA TO GET STAR ON HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME, JULY 25th.
LOUIS PRIMA, JR AND THE WITNESSES FEATURING VOCALIST SARAH SPIEGEL TO PERFORM FREE LIVE CONCERT AFTER CEREMONY AT 11:30 a.m.

Louis Prima, one of the greatest contributors to popular music and a powerful entertainment influence during the past eight decades will be posthumously presented with his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Sunday, July 25th @11:30 a.m. in front of The Montalban Theatre. This year also marks Louis Prima's 100th birthday. To commemorate the occasion, his son, Louis Prima, Jr., who is now carrying on the legacy of his father’s music, will be there to accept the honor along with his sister, Lena Prima. He and his band, The Witnesses featuring star vocalist Sarah Spiegel, will perform a live concert including some of his father’s most famous hits immediately after the ceremony.

The presentation and concert kicks off the day-long festivities of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce public event "Walk the Walk", celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

LOST YOUR JOB? TOOK A PAY CUT?
DON'T BE A STRANGER!
WE'LL WORK SOMETHING OUT FOR YOU

Every now and again, people just disappear from our scene who have been regular dancers. I wonder why. Did they get married, did they move, or did they suffer some financial hit.

If it's economics, please know that you are always welcome. Don't stay away. We can work something out! Here's some options:

~ I am happy to work out trades... you could sit at the door for a bit at the Rhythm Club in exchange for the dance that night.

~ Find me at the Rhythm Club, and just pay what you can.

~ I'll give you some Rhythm Club passes until this era blows over for you.

~ And the same thing goes for all Lindy By The Sea classes!

I know that dancing really helps in hard times. So don't be a stranger! We'll work it out to meet your needs.
