RACELAND, La. (AP) — Musicians are running a new concert hall in Louisiana.
The Daily Comet reports that’s helping it attract big name acts like Marc Broussard and Wayne Toups to Raceland, a census-designated place about 32 miles (51 kilometers) southwest of New Orleans.
Manager Brennon Trant says that before opening Venue 182 , they added about $30,000 worth of renovations, including a new stage, to the former Cajun Country Event Center. They also added bars in various places and big flat-screen TVs and a projector for LSU and Saints football games.
Trant is vocalist for the alternative rock group Calling Home, and has been a full-time musician for about four years. He says he and his business partners want to bring in all kinds of music.
