Louis Prima to be inducted into the Warren Easton Hall of Fame. LPJ to accept the Honor on behalf of the Louis Prima Foundation. The Public is invited. Warren Easton, the city's oldest public high school, is also the only such institution in New Orleans to have established a Hall of Fame. During the past eight decades, more than 20,000 students have graduated from the Canal Street landmark which opened as Boys High School in Class of 1913, but whose roots date to its predecessor school which opened in 1843. In Class of 1987, a 75th anniversary celebration was held at the Louisiana Superdome. The outgrowth of this gathering was the formation of the Warren Easton Hall of Fame Committee. Since Class of 1991, more than 132 members of the Easton family have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. (114 Graduates and 18 Honorary) Under its auspices, the Hall of Fame committee has also awarded more than $215,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors, provided the school with needed equipment and supplies, and presented $18,000 in faculty awards. Selection to the Warren Easton Hall of Fame is based upon outstanding contribution to the community, excellence of character, significant professional accomplishments and a demonstrated love for Warren Easton High School. The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to recognize Warren Easton alumni and members of the Easton family for their achievements and to set a standard for current students and future graduates. http://www.warreneastoncharterhigh.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=196260&type=d&termREC_ID=&pREC_ID=395715Tickets Save

Bio: Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses (louisprimajr.com) are bringing Prima music into the 21st century. Not content to sit on the legacy they so passionately protect, LPJ and the band are taking a page from his father’s playbook, by wailing “Prima-Style” like it’s 2014.

“One artist is unafraid to breach (the) vast divide between the golden age of jazz and big band music and the hard hitting rock and roll we all know and love today. Louis Prima Jr. has breathed life once more into the golden age of jazz music, and in so doing has fused the genre with rock and roll in a way that’s never been done before. This is a must have album for the summer, and can be found in stores June 10th, 2014.”
