CHRISTIAN SERPAS & GHOST TOWN
“It’s been about a year, but it seems like forever since the virus hit and all of our band shows got cancelled,” said Christian. “Like everyone, we’re really looking forward to getting out and seeing all of our friends again. We’ve got some new songs, plus Ghost Town t-shirts and CDs, so we’re raring to go!”
Ghost Town is comprised of Serpas (vocals, acoustic guitar), Jeff Oteri (drums), George Neyrey (guitar), and Don Williams (bass guitar). They’ve been representing St. Tammany Parish on the regional country scene since 1999, earning their reputation as one of the Gulf South’s best live acts.
The band has released 8 CDs, landed songs on Country Radio charts, and received awards, honors and accolades from respected Louisiana music magazines including Album of the Year, Musician of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Top Louisiana CDs of the Year. They’ve performed over 1,500 shows, raising roofs from Austin to Nashville and every town in between. They’ve done it all: clubs, fairs, festivals, casinos and concert halls, along with dozens of TV and radio show appearances.
Along the way Ghost Town have shared stages with nearly everyone who’s anyone in country music (Kenny Chesney, Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Montgomery Gentry, Blake Shelton, Pat Green, Jason Aldean, Zac Brown Band and nearly 100 others), making true believers out of audiences every time they hit a stage with their boot-stomping, hip-shaking performances.
