Jazz pioneer Louis Armstrong would have celebrated his 111th birthday last week were he still alive. Luckily, his music lives on and Resorts World Casino decided to throw a bash in his honor. The casino recently unveiled an art exhibit in their Fifth Avenue Atrium comprised of iconic photos of the musician from all around the world.
The small opening event hosted the media along with the Louis Armstrong House Quartet, who serenaded event attendees with classic Armstrong tunes. The exhibit will be featured in the atrium permanently, with classic Louis tunes playing for a week. “Though Armstrong was born in New Orleans, it was Queens, he chose to call home,” said Michael Speller, Resorts World Casino president.
