Shreveport Music Venue Feels Like You’re Time Traveling
Have You Ever Heard of Louisiana Grandstand?
Louisiana Grandstand is changing the music scene in Shreveport-Bossier. Up until I experienced a concert at Louisiana Grandstand I had no idea that this building that was built in 1925 had been a music venue. There is so much musical history in this building.
I Attended the Zach Top and The Steel Woods Sold Out Show.
I am a huge fan of The Steel Woods and I have seen them perform several times however this show was just unreal. Was it the venue?
It is an intimate experience and truly one of the best concerts I have seen in Shreveport-Bossier. My friend even agreed that it was incredible. The show opener Zach Tops hung out in the lobby meeting fans and it really felt like we had traveled back in time with the intimate concert venue and easy access to the performers.
The building was built at the corner of Line Avenue and Margaret Place in the Highland area. According to the venue's website; "The building was erected in 1925 as the clubhouse for the Woman's Department Club. The house known as the "Lady on Line" was born of the successful suffrage movement. Prominent ladies in the community dedicated their time & effort to create a club focused on growing educational and equality opportunities for women in the area."
"The Louisiana Grandstand theater holds boasting rights alongside the famous Strand Theater in downtown as the two oldest theaters in current day Shreveport/Bossier. The venue has hosted lectures and performances by historical figures like Robert Frost, Katharine Hepburn and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Today, the theater sits in almost pristine condition with an excellent space for an elevated - but intimate - musical and performance experience."
