The Red River Jazz Band will be performing at the Coughlin-Saunders Performing Arts Center, on Sunday, June 5th at 2:00pm. The 2011 USO show will give a special salute to our troops, by featuring a video slideshow for our local veterans of all ages. This is part of our commemoration to the active and retired servicemen and women as a continuation of the Memorial Weekend celebrations. If anyone wishes to have their military picture placed in our photo show, we ask you to send post to our Facebook page. Please add the approximate date and place the photo was taken. The picture can be of an individual or group of people. We ask only that it be military in nature.
The band will perform a multitude of songs, such as; “Stars and Stripeszzzz”, “Chattanooga Choo-Choo” and “April in Paris”, just to name a few. The photo slide show will be joined with the song “Wind Beneath My Wings”. Under the direction of James Lacombe, The Red River Jazz Band has entertained hundreds of fans throughout Central Louisiana.
Prices are $10.00 general admission, $5.00 for senior citizens over 65 yrs of age, active military persons and school-aged children. Any serviceman or woman attending the concert in uniform will receive free admission. Tickets will be available at the box office the day of the performance.
