Annual Johnny Jam begins tonight
The 14th annual John Simoneaux Memorial Jam kicks off at 8:30 p.m. today at Sundown Tavern with a pre-jam. The main event is set for 5 p.m. to midnight Saturday at both Sundown Tavern and Ponchatoulas.
This annual event serves to honor the memory of John Simoneaux, a local musician who was killed in a car crash in 2000. It also serves as a fundraiser for scholarships for Louisiana Tech University music students.
The band Cruise Control, pictured above, entertained the crowd during the 2012 event.
