(COVINGTON, La) — Wolf Jam, a student-led concert benefiting a fellow Lasallian school, will be making its annual return to St. Paul’s on Friday, May 6, 2016, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in the Briggs Assembly Center.
“It is a great experience for everyone involved,” said junior Nick Ashton, who will be playing drums for two of the featured musical acts. “The bands get the satisfaction of expressing themselves and having fun on stage, and the audience gets to hear great music.”
Attending Wolf Jam seems to always be a good experience for both the band members and the audience.
“My favorite memory of Wolf Jam was bonding on stage with other students and being able to express myself through music with my role models,” said Ashton. “It was a very powerful experience.”
The bands involved in this year’s Wolf Jam include OJ was Innocent, Dave Fishingtrip and the Difference Engine, Taylored, Blake’s Bus Experience, Rasputin’s Powdered Broken Dreams, Steel Stallion, Advanced Math Period E, and a special guest appearance by Richard Pichon and Alex Lacour.
Every band performing is made up of students from St. Paul’s; they will either be present students or alumni.
“Every band has to have at least one St. Paul’s student to qualify,” said Ashton. “This year, though, everybody is from St. Paul’s.”
Wolf Jam is reportedly a great environment to be in where everybody knows each other, and it is very laid back according to its participants.
“It’s a great place to hang out,” Hayden Moran, who is helping put on the event, said. “Plus, everything goes to charity, so it is great to support our brother school.”
Admission to Wolf Jam is $7 presale, with tickets being $10 at the door. All earnings made throughout the night will be donated to fellow Lasallian school San Miguel High School in Tuscon, Ariz., which serves a large population of students in financial need.
All food and drinks served at Wolf Jam will be provided by the Lasallian Youth Leaders, and the food will either be Mugshots burgers or Chick-fil-A.
