BATON ROUGE – The U.S. Army Band, known worldwide as “Pershing’s Own,” brings its
Army Blues “Swamp Romp” to Baton Rouge for a free concert on Monday, May 19, at 7
p.m. at LSU’s New Tiger Band Hall. The concert is billed as a Louisiana musical tribute
to Louisiana veterans.
The one-time-only special event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.
Formed in the late 1990s by Louisiana expatriates and LSU alumni Harry Watters on
trombone and Graham Breedlove on trumpet, Swamp Romp has delighted audiences across
the nation with the sounds of South Louisiana for more than 15 years. Their program
music is an exciting gumbo of traditional New Orleans jazz, Zydeco and Cajun music
and original compositions to delight music fans young and old.
