HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing
Arts will present Durand Jones and the Indications, a deep soul revival band, in one
performance only. Scheduled Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m., the concert will take place in the
downtown Hammond theatre.
Columbia Theatre Artistic Director Jim Winter is looking forward to welcoming Jones home.
“Durand is a Southeastern alumnus who is a rising star. His fantastic, soul-influenced band recently played on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ and ‘CBS This Morning,’” Winter said. “We are thrilled to have him returning to his roots. My staff and I are currently working very hard to make Nov. 1 a special night celebrating some of Southeastern’s most successful alums.”
In celebration of Jones’ return to Southeastern, Columbia Theatre will be serving Gnarly Barley, a beer brewed by Southeastern alumni Zac and Cari Caramonta, offering a special discount for alumni that night, and hosting additional surprise guest alumni for the curtain speech and lobby greeters.
Tickets for Durand Jones and the Indications are $36 in the orchestra or balcony and $45 in the loge. Tickets can be purchased at the Columbia Theatre Box Office at 220 East Thomas Street in Hammond, which is open 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday-Friday, online at columbiatheatre.org, or by phone at 985-543-4371.
A special Southeastern student ticket price of $10 is available, while supplies last. Students must present their Southeastern IDs at the Columbia box office to receive the discounted price. Additionally, all Southeastern faculty, retired faculty or university staff with ID may purchase one ticket for the concert and receive one ticket at half price. Both tickets must be purchased in the same transaction and for the same price at the Columbia box office.
