Join us for an evening celebrating internationally acclaimed musicians Ronnie Kole, John Perkins Sr. and Bobby Ohler. Each is a Parish President’s 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.
Joining the trio in a cameo appearance will be Tee Augustine, a local singer and storyteller who is a favorite in the community theater scene.
This event is presented by the City of Covington in partnership with St. Tammany Art Association.
General Admission $20. Ticktets are available via the EventBrite link provided or at St. Tammany Art Assocition, 320 N Columbia St. in downtown Covington.
