Live Music: Kent Gill
Thursday, August 1, 2019, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Kent Gill is fresh out of the studio with his album, Let Not these Songs be Wasted, a 10-song collection of his original music. Two of the songs have already charted on Airplay Express and one is currently at number 3 on the HotDisc chart from the UK. Kent performs locally, sometimes as a single and sometimes with
bands. He enjoys playing guitar and singing with Flashback, the Shreveport based 1950's rock band. He is also a member of the Louisiana Hayride Band and loves the Hayride history and music. When Kent performs as a single, his songs range
from classic country to vintage rock to Cajun to fiddle breakdowns to even some 40's and 50's pop. And it's a good bet that he will perform some of his original songs from his new album as well. Kent grew up on a farm near Sugartown in Southwest Louisiana and now lives with his wife in Shreveport.

Down south where alligators roam through Cajun swamps, Chuck Kesilman, a
multi-talented true southern gentleman amazes his fans on his 12-string guitar as
he delivers a superior performance. Chuck shapes his standards for unique
songwriting skills and stage presence with a touch of the Beatles musical style
together with his own creativity and flavor which has earned Chuck the title of
“The World’s Greatest Single-Solo 12-String Beatles Guitarist”. Chuck’s
performance emits a sparkle of fun-loving humor together with true warmness
and superb musical talent. Chuck was honored to perform at the 2010
Shreveport/Bossier Christmas in the Sky, a very extravagant elite affair where the
main theme was the Beatles, and Chuck, of course, was one of the star
Chuck is also an incredible songwriter. Chuck submitted his hit single, “Hey Rah!
He’s the Guitar Man” (aka “Guitar Man”) to New Artist Radio in 2005 which
climbed to #1 on the charts and stayed on the top 40 chart most of the 2005.
Thereafter, the CD sold online earning profits and recognition for Chuck. In June
of 2009, Chuck attended the Nashville Record Review hosted by Cliff Ayers.
Chuck was honored and awarded 1 st place “Gold” award for his “Guitar Man”
song. Chuck submitted his “Guitar Man” song to Loggins Promotion for rating,
and the song received 4 stars out of 4 rating, perfect.
Thereafter, Chuck released his next single, “Return of the Walrus/Flight of the
Blackbird”, a Lennon/McCartney Tribute song. This song was submitted to the
Billboard World Song Contest in January of 2009. In July of 2009, this song earned
Chuck an Honorable Mention Award from the Billboard World Song Contest for
writing a “hit” song. Chuck created this incredible song that reunites John
Lennon and Paul McCartney as the Walrus and the Blackbird together with eerie
but amazing lyrics with exceptional sound effects, a masterpiece.
Chuck’s latest single, “That Warm and Gentle Old Man” is a personal writing
where Chuck remembers the barber in his town who all knew and loved, and is
now a legend for the friendships he made with so many. This is a song with
heartfelt lyrics and beautiful music combined to make it another hit for Chuck.
Chuck’s music is currently being played by various radio stations throughout the
United States including NBRN.FM in Nashville, Tennessee. Keith Bradford, owner

Thursday, August 29, 2019, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Front person and lead guitarist of Spectra Vamp, Jennifer Janét, was practically born with a
guitar in her hand. Originally from Baton Rouge, LA, Jennifer started playing guitar at the
age of 9. After which, she played guitar in several church worship teams for 12 years playing
acoustic and electric guitar.
Jennifer started playing professionally with her sister, JoAnna Janét, soon after graduating from MTSU in Murfreesboro, TN and was fortunate enough to perform with JoAnna on The Grand Ole Opry in 2002. After the birth of her son, Samuel, Jennifer began
playing on a regular basis with her sister, Jessica Janét Brock, in Shreveport, LA. In 2006, Jennifer joined a Houma, LA based rock band, Sons of William, playing bass. She recorded 2 albums and toured with the group for 5 years, while still remaining a member of several different bands in Shreveport.
The idea for "Spectra Vamp," came about in early 2015, after Jennifer's sister, Jessica, won a vocal competition. Heavily influenced by several different styles of music, Jennifer
began writing and recording songs for the project with no set genre in mind. The multi-genre album, "Attention" was completed in 2016 and released digitally in February 2017.
