"Direct from Bourbon Street to YOU!"
Supported by his seven piece band, The Royal Street Krewe, Herb takes you on an emotional journey: feel the sorrow of a second line dirge; warm to the stories and jokes of his grandfather Louis; experience the joy and exhilaration of dancing like you are live at Mardi Gras!
Together these men and women have entertained many at Subaru, Westpac, Watpac and Cisco Systems to name but a few.
"Hollywood" Herb, grandson of the late great Louis, has made it his life's work to follow in the footsteps of his family namesake. Those footsteps have led the legend and the legacy to Australia! Jazz and Blues master Louis Armstrong left a legacy beyond most of his contemporaries. Known as the great "Satchmo", Armstrong's musical genius, distinctive style, famously infectious smile and unmistakable vocals earned him a unique place in history with a string of timeless hits, collaborations with a who's who of musical legends, and resulted in a career that spanned five decades and helped to define the evolving genres of jazz, blues and swing.
Born in New Orleans, Herb's first memories are of his grandfather Louis practicing with his band. Growing up and spending his first 20 years around Bourbon St, Herb naturally displayed and developed his talents of street performance, comedy and singing.
Like his famous grandfather, Herb has played all the famous venues of New Orleans, including The Bourbon St Blues Bar, Famous Door, The Krazy Korner and The Cats Meow as well as performing at Superbowls, Olympic ceremonies, Hollywood conventions and Las Vegas showrooms just to name a few.
"Never danced before? Herb Armstrong, New Orleans-born Entertainer, will have you jitterbugging like crazy before the night's out!"
"You know, he sounds like me"
"We regard him as our younger brother, thats why he's good. We grew up in the same neighborhood"
Since his arrival Herb has completely wowed the local entertainment scene with his performances and his band, the Royal Sreet. Krewe.
The show, "A Night In New Orleans", showcases the rich musical heritage of New Orleans. Herb and the Krewe will have you up and dancing from the opening bars! Herb's individual style brings a fresh sound to the timeless traditions of jazz, blues and swing.
