The Old South Jamboree was started by Lester an Dee Hodges in the mid-1960s It was started as a concert hall that the entire family could come to and enjoy good country music and a family environment. Most of the great artists have performed on the stage of the Old South including Merle Haggard, George Jones, Dolly Parton and many, many others. And now, some 45 years later, Mr. Hodges is still behind the snack bar providing hot dogs and popcorn, and it is still a venue that you can bring your entire family to.
The Original Old South Jamboree features “Carlton Jones and His Red Hot Country Band” every first and third Saturday of the month. Carlton plays guitar and sings, and the other members of the band include some of the area’s best musicians – Randy Blackwell on steel guitar, Robert Reynolds on Drums and vocals, Kelly Kemp on guitar and keyboard, Jeremy Downey on vocals and keyboard, Eddie Warren on bass and vocals, Larry and Maxine Whitfield singing vocals and backup vocals.
Doors open at 5:30 PM. Tickets are 10-dollars for adults, 5-dollars for kids aged 6 to 12, and free for kids under 6.
At The Crossing Apartments in Denham Springs, Louisiana, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
