7PM Chapel Hart

Doors Open at 6PM

Chapel Hart has an amazing ability to tug on your heartstrings with a tender yet powerful ballad, then have you pumping your fist in unison to the pulse of hard-hitting rock & roll.

The band accentuates the three vocalists, who embody the sweet and southern sound of country with the soulful undertones noting their gospel roots. Chapel Hart has entertained people from all over the world as they visit The Big Easy and they all say there is nothing quite like the Chapel Hart experience.
