Christian Serpas & Ghost Town are either a country band with a lot of rock in them, or a rock band with a lot of country in them. They play roots music, Americana, rocked out, revved-up country music.
Armed with their own catchy, memorable songs, and their rip-roaring interpretations of the classics, Ghost Town is constantly reinforcing the critical acclaim that's been heaped upon them, and winning new fans with their boot stomping, hip shaking, high energy performances.
Ghost Town’s road has been highlighted by many awards and accolades. The band, Christian Serpas (vocals, acoustic guitar), Jeff Oteri (drums, vocals), George Neyrey (guitar, vocals) and Brian Broussard (bass guitar, vocals) have performed over 500 shows, raising roofs from Texas to Nashville and everywhere in between. They’ve done it all: clubs, fairs, festivals, casinos and concert halls, along with dozens of TV and radio show appearances. They’ve landed songs on Country Radio charts, and received Album of the Year, Musician of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Top Louisiana CDs of the Year honors from respected local music magazines.
Along the way they’ve shared stages with 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 over 60 others), winning over audiences everywhere they go.
