The Natchitoches Events Center was the place to be Dec. 21 for great music and holiday fun. Local musical favorites Johnny Earthquake and the Moondogs hosted the second annual “A Rockin’ Louisiana Christmas.” Several hundred music fans clapped and danced in the aisles as they enjoyed the concert. The Moondogs were joined by special guests Wayne Toups, James Burton, Jo-El Sonnier and the legendary Estelle Brown. James Burton’s granddaughter joined her grandfather on guitar for several songs.

Local entertainer and 94.9 The River Morning Show host Trini Triggs brought the crowd to its feet with a high energy set of songs.

The “A Rockin’ Louisiana Christmas Concert” is rapidly becoming an area tradition. The concert also serves as a fundraiser for the upcoming Natchitoches Jazz Festival.
