Ralphie Head We need the sheets for the table! Local crooner Ralph “Ralphie Head”
Abbruzzi brings his style of Louis Prima to a standing-room-only crowd of fans at Galdo’s Catering & Entertainment Center. Prima, the “King of Swing,” combined jazz, swing, big band and pop for a legendary sound that resonates in his timeless hits like “Lazy Mary,” “Buono Sera,” “Just a Gigolo,” “I Ain’t Got Nobody,” “Jump Jive an’ Wail,” and “Angelina” (named for his mother). In his tribute to Louis Prima, Abbruzzi incorporates the same “exuberant personality” into his act. Judging by the audience’s response, Ralphie hits the nail on the Head.
