Upcoming Events: Summer Pops


Featuring vocalists Ian Jutsun, Andrea Koziol, Stephanie Martin, and Johnny Rutledge. The early '80s matched and even surpassed the '60s for new bands, sounds, and most of all, fabulous songs. New music was everywhere and radio again was king. Tears For

Fears, The Bangles, George Michael, The B-52s, Cindy Lauper and many more, expertly arranged for rock band, vocals and full symphony. (All arrangements by Jeans ‘n Classics)


Jeans ‘n Classics is thrilled to return to perform with Lake Charles Symphony after the success of their Music of ABBA concert (2019), Music of James Bond (2018), Music of The Eagles (2016), and Music of Elton John (2013). They have been bringing their impressive

symphonic rock catalogue to symphony audiences for the past 2+ decades. A star performer in the arts and entertainment scene, this company of top players and vocalists tours year round to perform as special guests of symphonies across North America. Closer to home, they have their very own full symphony: the Jeans ’n Classics Rock Symphony. Most definitely not a tribute act, Jeans 'n Classics faithfully interprets the music of legendary rock and pop albums and artists, with their own special and signature flair.
