      EVENT DETAILS
      11th Annual Gene Yevich Memorial Concert

      This concert, in celebration of the memory of former Scranton Superintendent of Fires Gene Yevich and sponsored by Former Mayor Dave Wenzel and his wife Janet, features David Ostwald and his highly-acclaimed Louis Armstrong Eternity Band, joined by internationally renowned Armstrong historian Ricky Riccardi, teaming up to present a unique multimedia presentation full of photos, videos, commentary and live music, all about the unparalleled entertainer and great humanitarian Louis Armstrong. Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald’s Louis Armstrong Eternity Band (a/k/a Gully Low Jazz Band) breathes life and passion into America’s own great art form. Since 1980, this acoustically electrifying group has appeared nationally and internationally in varied settings - currently in the seventeenth year of its open-ended weekly Wednesday evening engagement at New York City’s Birdland, at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer’s Night Swing, at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, at Jazz in July at the 92nd Street Y, at Lionel Hampton’s New Orleans-style funeral procession, and at four appearances at Scotland’s Nairn International Jazz Festival.
