Join us for an evening celebrating internationally acclaimed musicians Ronnie Kole, John Perkins and Bobby Ohler. Each is a Parish President’s Music Award Recipient and all of them call St. Tammany “home.”
Kole, a New Orleans Jazz legend, continues to tour the United States, Europe and Asia, tickling the ivories for sold out audiences. He holds the distinct honor of having performed for six U.S. presidents and Pope (now Saint) John Paul II.
Perkins is the former lead crooner of the Crew Cuts, a band credited with being among the pioneers of rock ’n’ roll. He has been inducted into the Canada Music Hall of Fame, and is best known for the band’s chart topping hits, “Sh’Boom” and “Earth Angel.”
Ohler has enjoyed time in the spotlight with appearances on Hollywood’s All American College Show, the 1969 version of today’s nationally televised talent shows. Through the years, he has shared the stage with Tony Bennett, Doc Severson, The Temptations, K.C. and the Sunshine Band and many more. He currently fronts The Harbor Band, enjoying popularity on both the north and south shores.
The event will include a cameo performance by Tee Augustine, a favorite in the local theatre community. This is the Shop Local Artists Week event you won’t want to miss!
Presented in the Fuhrmann Auditorium by the City of Covington in partnership with St. Tammany Art Association.
