SATCHMO'S GHOST At Rigger's Loft Wine Co.

Friday, January 12, 2024, 6:00 PM  9:00 PM

Satchmo's Ghost is a swinging and bluesy band. Inspired by the “ghost” of Louis Armstrong and his passion for swing and blues, this 6-piece band often takes on a "big band" sound. The band’s set list includes songs that have a punch to them and are easy to dance to. Yet, they clearly have an affinity for tasty, soulful blues tunes. Support Live Music - $5 Music Cover Charge
