Southern Gospel Music Weekend

Just thought some of you gospel music fans might be interested in our community's upcoming event this weekend, March 4-6, to be held at the Thomas Jason Lingo Community Center in Oak Grove, Louisiana each evening at 6:30 p.m.
The following is a lineup of the featured groups:

Thurs.     Eleventh Hour, The Franklin Family, Mark Trammell Trio and the Whisnants

Fri.         The Joe Cook Family, The Proclaimers Quartet, The Crist Family and The Perrys

Sat.        Sanctuary Quartet, Priority, Palmetto State Quartet, and Dixie Melody Boys.

Tickets are $15 a day or $40 for a three day pass.  For more information call (318) 428-5282.

This is the same community center where we hold our annual Holiday Boutique Christmas craft show.  You can see pictures of the inside of the building in my previous post, It's Almost Time for the Fat Lady to Sing!!!
Just imagine up to 1,000 comfortable padded chairs filling the room instead of the craft booths .  With a state of the art sound system there is not a bad seat in the house.
