Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Shreveport resident James Burton has invited some friends to celebrate Christmas on Saturday, December 21st
at Margaritaville Resort and Casino at 8:00 P.M.
(doors open at 7 P.M.
) for James Burton’s Rockin’ Louisiana Christmas.
This very special event will feature not only Burton, but Grammy winning Zydeco legends Wayne Toups and Jo-el Sonnier
, James’ band mate from the TCB Band
, Estelle Brown of the Sweet Inspirations
, and Louisiana’s top show band, Johnny Earthquake and the Moondogs.
“This is going to be an amazing show” said Burton. “We wanted to feature Louisiana artists and Louisiana music to help everyone get in the Christmas spirit.” Burton continued, “Maybe some tickets to the show can be an early Christmas gift.”
In addition to holiday favorites, and the artists performing some of their most popular songs, the concert will also feature a tribute to Elvis Presley
, spotlighting the talents of Burton, Elvis’ former guitarist, and Estelle Brown, former member of The Sweet Inspirations
who were Elvis’ backup singers.
