Brookfield, WI (November 10, 2014) A sold-out concert event from the group that Simon Cowell declared “absolutely brilliant” comes to the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts (Wilson Center) this Wednesday, November 12.

Their forthcoming album King of the Swingers: A Salute to Louis Prima was recorded in Hollywood, California, and features special guests such as Kenny Ball, Ray Gelato, and Toni Elizabeth Prima (daughter of Louis Prima and Keely Smith) and includes their hit version of the classic “Bring Me Sunshine” – the video of which now has more than 2 million views on YouTube and has won seven film festival awards.
