(COVINGTON, La.) — Once again, since its 2015 revival, St. Paul’s annual Wolf Jam variety concert will be amping up student attendees seeking music and comedic entertainment, for charitable purposes.
The event will take place on Friday, April 28, 2017, and will run from 7 to 9 p.m.
“Wolf Jam is a great way to enjoy yourself while also supporting a fantastic cause,” co-organizer and SPS senior Nicholas Ashton said. “The entertainment has a higher quality than previous years, and is sure to not disappoint.”
Senior August Latapie and Ashton were in charge of coordinating the event. It has a typical battle-of-the-bands approach, with a unique way of determining the victor.
“The winner of Wolf Jam will be determined by which band has the most money in their donation jar at the end of the night,” Ashton said, “which gives them the coveted Wolf Jam trophy.”
All of the night’s proceeds, after expenses, will go to San Miguel High School. SMHS is a fellow Lasallian institution in Tuscon, Arizona, which is part of the Cristo Rey Network. Students in the network have four school days a week, and earn their tuitions from apprenticeships on the fifth weekday at area companies.
To help increase the distribution of funds raised towards SMHS, Wolf Jam will be partially funded by a generous sponsorship from ACE Mortgage in Covington.
Wolf Jam’s venue, in lieu of being the Briggs Assembly Center as per usual, will be an outdoor concert located in the courtyard of LaSalle Hall. People are to congregate in the grass within the perimeter of the sidewalks.
Also, refreshments will be available for purchase during the event. Pre-sale tickets will be sold at lunch for $5 near Sarge’s in the Main School Building for the remainder of the week. Thereafter, at-the-gate admission will cost $7.
Those who are still on the fence about whether or not to attend can view the list of headlining performers below:
Yung Flappy, Marcuz, Matt Kangas and Shane Ulfers, Bradley del Rio, Baby and the Brinkmans, The Mouthbreathers, and more.
