Lena Prima’s Live in Concert is the closest thing you can get to a swinging soirée at a high-class Vegas nightclub today. The singing talent shows that she hasn’t strayed far from her familial legacy on this energetic, fun-loving show recorded live at Myron’s Cabaret Jazz at the Smith Center in Las Vegas in March of 2019. That familial heritage of course refers to her wildly talented parents, Louis Prima and Gia Maione, and Lena shows she has their same charisma and swagger on Live in Concert. Joined by a 14-piece big band, Lena Prima runs through a gamut of some of her father’s biggest hits including “I Wanna Be Like You (The Monkey Song)” made famous by Disney’s The Jungle Book, “Sing, Sing, Sing,” and “Just a Gigalo” to name a few. It will be of little surprise to Lena fans that many of the selections come from the Italian-American songbook (Lena is a proud Italian-American), and are also included on Prima’s 2019 Basin Street Records release Prima La Famiglia, a celebration of Italian Famiglia such as “Oh Marie,” “Josephine, Please No Lean (On The Bell),” and “Pensate Amore (Think Love).”

Live in Concert encapsulates an evening of fun, and will have you dancing in your living room to songs like  “Jump Jive an’ Wail.” Much like a Frank Sinatra, Liza Minelli, or Louis Prima himself, Lena is in her element performing on the big Vegas stage with the support of fantastic musicians with a raucous and loving audience swinging along with her. If you’re looking for some pure, unadulterated fun, Lena Prima’s Live in Concert is for you!
