Lena Prima Returns to Suncoast Showroom Paying Tribute to Her Legendary Father Louis Prima Sept. 19
Recording artist and entertainer Lena Prima, youngest daughter of music legend Louis Prima, returns to the Suncoast Showroom bringing her powerful voice and infectious energy on September 19. 

“That Old Black Magic,” “Jump Jive ‘An Wail,” and “Sing Sing Sing” are among the songs made popular by her father that Prima will perform at the Suncoast, the latter featuring Lena on the drums. Joined by her seven-piece band, Prima will also perform tunes from her recently released albums, along with her father’s classics.

Born in Las Vegas to famous singer, songwriter and musician Louis Prima and classically trained singer Gia Maione Prima, young Lena Prima literally 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 University of Nevada Las Vegas where she studied art, music and dance.

Singing became her full-time career in 1991, 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 ‘50s.

In addition to an award-winning performance career, Prima is an accomplished artist and jewelry designer.

This year, Prima released a new album, “Starting Something,” containing 12 original songs and two cover tracks. The uplifting album has a roots/rock feel, along with gospel and country influences.

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