To all who attended the Dance Hall in Kittery this Saturday, thank you for joing us in celebrating the music of Louis Armstrong. It was a very special night for us, and we had a blast performing!

As promised in the pre-concert talk, here is a copy of our set list as well as youtube links so that you might listen to these songs from the horn of Mr. Armstrong himself.

First, here is a link to Louis' oldest known footage of what his live act may have been like. This is a 1933 concert in Copenhagen, in which he performs "Dinah", "I Cover The Waterfront", and "Tiger Rag"

Happy Listening!
