It's time to rock out, Ruston!

Friday & Saturday, February 21-22

All you music lovers are in for a treat this weekend! It's time again for the 15th Annual John Simoneaux Memorial Jam in Historic Downtown Ruston! 

We have two nights of nonstop entertainment in Ruston's favorite hotspots. Friday is the pre-jam warm up starting at 8:30pm at Sundown Tavern. The Ruston Road Kings and the Mistreats will be on stage getting things kicked off for Saturday!

Saturday has quite the lineup for you. Opening performances include local guitarist Cain Budds on stage at Ponchatoulas, Cruise Control on the inside stage at Sundown Tavern and Honeybee recording artist Buddy Flett out on the patio at Sundown. After these opening acts, the stage is open to anyone interested in playing! Fun runs from 5pm-12am.  

Tickets are $10 per person and cover entry into the event and a food plate! Food items include BBQ, jambalaya, potato salad, beans, chicken, dressing and desserts. You just can't beat ten bucks for hours of music entertainment AND awesome food.

            Along with a silent auction, there will also be a raffle for a $2,698 Taylor Electric Guitar! Raffle tickets are $5. Contact Ken Carter at 318-278-3705 for more information. 

For those who don't know, this is an annual fundraiser created in memory of Ruston's own 
talented John Simoneaux who died in a car accident 
in 2000. Proceeds go towards scholarships for 
Louisiana Tech University guitar students. 

Don't miss the great night of music, food and FUN! See you there!
