John Guidroz CD Release Show

After over a year of production, John Guidroz will be releasing his debut album Yesterday's News tonight, September 7th at Luna Live.  Recorded, produced, and mixed locally here in Lake Charles at EMF studios (Lake Charles Music) with production guru Matt Moss, Yesterday's News serves as a testament to all the great work going on among musicians here in Lake Charles.  Guidroz is one of a number of local musical artists who have albums nearing the end of production, or newly released.  If anyone tries to tell you there is no music scene here in Lake Charles, be sure to tell them about all the albums our community has coming down the pipeline.  Other upcoming/new releases include; When The Word Was Sound, Sinners, The Lochness Mobsters, Go Granny Go, and The Loaded 44rs just to name a few.  

The Show kicks off tonight at Luna Live at 9pm with the Good Wood, followed by Wendy Colonna, John Guidroz will follow with a full band lineup consisting of himself, Matt Moss, Kris Harper, Jacob Robles.  A $10 cover charge will get you a copy of the album, and access to a great night of homegrown original Lake Charles music.
