The Chris Milyo Big Band – What A Wonderful World
The Big Easy comes to Arlington for an unforgettable, one-night event!
Following his enormously successful 2017 Duke Ellington Christmas show, bandleader Chris Milyo returns to the Arlington Music Hall stage with “What a Wonderful World: A Tribute to Louis Armstrong and the Music of New Orleans.” Experience the history of Jazz through the eyes of Satchmo as you enjoy the music that made him an American music icon — Mack the knife, La Vie In Rose, Muskat Ramble, and more.
Featuring vocalist JE McKissic, Grammy Award-winner Adonis Rose, and a host of musicians who have shared the stage with New Orleans icons such as the Neville Brothers, Harry Connick Jr., and Wynton Marsalis, this show is sure to transport you to the birthplace of Jazz. With additional selections from New Orleans legends like Dr. John and Professor Longhair, you’re sure to leave this one-of-a-kind musical experience humming a medley of familiar classics.
