    football series. The universities have committed to a
    ten-year series alternating between Baton Rouge and
    Orleans. To celebrate this rival revival, five New
    Orleans natives and alumni from the two Universities
    dubbed the GuROUX Marketing Group have created Rival
    Fest 2007. The producers of Rival Fest 2007 are
    committed to making Rival Fest an annual pre-game

    event will take place in Baton Rouge the night before
    the game.

    Steve Ballard, co-founder of Rival Fest 2007, a New
    Orleans native and former standout football player at
    Tulane University (89' – 93') has a special attachment
    for this legendary rivalry: "Having grown up in New
    Orleans, the LSU / Tulane game was always one of the
    biggest and most talked about college sporting events
    around. I'm thrilled to help bring back the series to
    all its glory and to help celebrate that, we have
    created Rival Fest 2007, one-of-a-kind pre-game
    extravaganza for alumni, fans, and friends of both
    schools." Aric Webb, an LSU alumnus and co-founder of
    Rival Fest 2007, added, " We are providing an
    opportunity for fans of to come together, meet up with
    old and new friends, listen to the region's most
    celebrated bands, sample great food and drink all
    while celebrating what makes this State and rivalry so
    special – the people." Stephen Rehage, founder of the
    Voodoo Music Festival and celebrated former LSU
    football player adds, " We need more event activities
    like this that focus on drawing more people back to
    the city for a positive entertainment experience
    resulting in a greater economic impact for the city.
    I'm looking forward to some really great music and
    seeing one of the country's best rivalries return to
    prominence and an LSU victory!"

    ensemble with hordes of loyal fans in the South and a
    burgeoning audience around America. These admirers are
    drawn to a sound that's been aptly described both as
    "collegiate rock with a Southern influence" and
    "harmony-laden acoustic pop" for its eclectic blend of

    '60s rock, and the band's roots in South Louisiana

    Craig Ross. He has performed at the famed Austin City
