Lena Prima Returns to Suncoast Showroom Sept. 20 with Tribute to Her Legendary Father, Louis Prima
Recording artist and entertainer Lena Prima, youngest daughter of music legend Louis Prima, returns to the Suncoast Showroom for one night only to perform popular songs recorded by her father along with original hits, Friday, September 20. 

“That Old Black Magic,” “Jump Jive ‘An Wail,” and “Sing Sing Sing” are among the songs popularized by her father that Prima will perform at the Suncoast, backed by her seven-piece band.

Born in Las Vegas to famous singer, songwriter and musician Louis Prima and classically trained singer Gia Maione Prima, young Lena Prima grew up on stage singing, dancing and touring with her parents during her summer vacations. She graduated from Clark High School in Las Vegas and continued her education at UNLV where she studied art, music and dance. Singing became her full-time career in 1991, as she began touring with bands The Checkmates and The Spiral Staircase.

In 2000, Prima began a two-year engagement of Louis Prima, That’s My Dad! at the Sahara Hotel and Casino, where her father had performed in the early 1950s. With three albums recorded and released, Prima has performed on stages throughout the country and was praised by the Chicago Tribune, “A standing ovation…Lena has the panache of her father.”

Prima has received numerous honors, including a Best Jazz Song nomination by the Hollywood Music in Media Awards for her original composition “Silly in the Middle.” She has also been recognized by the American Italian Cultural Roundtable of New York for continuing her father’s legacy and representing women in the field of jazz.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available from $15.95, plus tax and convenience fees. Tickets can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.636.7075 or visiting
