Born and bred in New Orleans Herb Armstrong lived the dream of performing the infamous Bourbon St and French Quarter clubs as a daily reality. Sharing stages with Bobby Womack, Missy Elliot and the Neville Brothers, he has performed around the nation, including the prestigious entertainment capital of the world, Las Vegas.
Following his heart, Armstrong is now 'Property of Australia', performing the music and memories of his grandfather, the late great Louis Armstrong and the infectious Zydeco and Second Line grooves around the nation in an interactive floor show.
Audiences everywhere agree that the beat is contagious and the dance floor magnetic, no one knows whether it's Hoodoo or Voodoo!
Supported by his seven piece band, The Royal Street Krewe, Herb takes you on an emotional journey: feel the sorrow of a second line dirge; warm to the stories and jokes of is grandfather Louis; experience the joy and exhilaration of dancing like you are live at Mardi Gras!
Together these men and women have entertained many at Subaru, Westpac, Watpac and Cisco Systems to name but a few.
So why not add your name to the 'A' list with this must have show?

"What a great night, everyone had such fun and you put on a great show."

"...talk about stage presence. Herb had the audience eating out of his hand the night we caught him in the Blues Tent - he seemed hugely disappointed at the end when he wasn't allowed to proceed with the encore due to time constraints."
