Louie Prima Jr. Live In Concert at the Fox Theater Salinas
LOUIS PRIMA JR.
To get an understanding of Louis Prima Jr. one needs to know a bit about his lineage. His father was swing / jazz great Louis Prima and his mother was Louis’ female vocalist, Gia Maione who taught young Louis how to play drums at an early age. These days, when people hear the song “Just a Gigolo” they think it’s a David Lee Roth song or that “Jump, Jive, and Wail” is a Brian Setzer & His Orchestra song. Wrong on both accounts! They are both Louis Prima songs which have stood the test of time! What is probably the most beloved song which Louis Sr. is known for is the song “I Wanna Be Like You” from the Disney classic, The Jungle Book. Louis Sr. was the voice of the human wannabe orangutan, King Louie. As you can see, Louis Prima Jr. has some influential history behind him.
