ABOUT

Millennium Country is currently looking for new musicians and a location to regularly rehearse. I would like to rebuild the group with 4 ~ 7 pieces to play a mix of Country, Classic Rock / New Orleans Style Swamp Pop, and Southern Rock (Rock a Billy).

The intent would be to gig predominantly on the North Shore of Lake Pontchartrain in Southeast Louisiana, also in Coastal and Southern Mississippi.

We would perform mostly cover songs and some of our own tunes, primarily for parties and special benefits, avoiding the lounge scene as much as possible ... tired of dealing with drunks & brawls.

I welcome any interested musician to contact me to set up a jam session / rehearsal, so if you're interested in playing a little music, give Jim a call 985-863-3316 or send an email to jimknoch at hot mail . com [leave out the spaces] and we'll see if we can set up a convenient time and place. We normally rehearse early every Friday evening at Jimmy's house in Hickory, La.
