“They’re a twangified rock ’n’ roll band. Like Led Zeppelin playing Johnny Cash.” – Offbeat magazine
Mix honky tonk lyrics with scorching rock n roll guitars. Then simmer it in the legendary Southern Louisiana heat, and you get Christian Serpas & Ghost Town's version of Americana Music.
For 15 years Ghost Town has been earning their reputation as one of the Gulf South’s best live acts, making true believers out of audiences every time they hit a stage with their boot-stomping, hip-shaking, high energy performances.
Armed with six CDs worth of their own catchy, memorable songs, plus their rip-roaring interpretations of country and rock classics, Ghost Town have performed nearly a thousand shows, raising roofs from Austin to Nashville and every town 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 awards, honors and accolades from respected Louisiana music magazines including Album of the Year, Musician of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Top Louisiana CDs of the Year.
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 70 others), winning over audiences everywhere they go.
