Louisiana Bands and Broadcast Personalities Unite to Help The American Red Cross Following Hurricane Gustav

BATON ROUGE, LA- It’s time to Rock the Storm Out!

Hurricane Gustav impacted nearly every citizen of Louisiana when the category 2 storm made landfall on Sept. 1, 2008. Nearly two weeks after the storm, many people are still living without electricity, without drinkable water from the tap and with mounds of storm debris in their front yards. One group that helps people overcome this adversity is the Louisiana Capital Area Chapter of The American Red Cross. That’s why four Louisiana bands with ties to the local media are uniting for a benefit concert called Rockin? the Storm Out.

The Chris LeBlanc Band will headline the all-day event supported by local bands SoundByte, fronted by WAFB TV-9 Sports anchor Jacques Doucet and former weekend anchor Avery Davidson, A Band Named Sue, fronted by Baton Rouge’s ESPN Radio 1300 AM’s Eric Lacassin and Lafayette recording artists Bandryland (Drew Landry’s Band), who have a new CD available next month called A Sharecropper’s Whine.

All four bands will perform during Rockin’ the Storm Out at Walk-On’s Bistreaux on Sunday, Sept. 28
starting at 3 pm. Admission will be a $10 donation to the American Red Cross. 100% of all donations will be given to the Louisiana Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross at the end of the show. None of the bands are getting paid for their performances and Walk-On?s is providing the venue for free.

“Rockin’ the Storm Out is a chance for the people of Baton Rouge to help those around them, while
escaping the stress brought on by Hurricane Gustav, if only for a little while,” said event organizer Avery Davidson.
