Band jam celebrates musician&#39;s life
The Annual John Simoneaux Memorial Jam, set to begin at 5 p.m. and last until midnight, serves to collect donations for a Louisiana Tech music scholarship. The event was initiated by several area musicians, along with Simoneaux's sister.
"We knew that we needed to do something (after Simoneaux's untimely death in a car accident)," Ruston Road King's guitar player and fund-raiser organizer Ken Carter said. "We talked to the powers that be at Tech and were told you must have a minimum of $10,000 to start a scholarship."
