Ducks Unlimited and Budweiser plan to pack Wolf Pen Creek amphitheatre
MEMPHIS, Tenn. March 25, 2008 - Ducks Unlimited (DU) and Budweiser will host the third annual Budweiser Duck Jam in Aggieland on Saturday, April 26 at Wolf Pen Creek amphitheatre in College Station, Texas. Ticket prices are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show. Prices include a membership to Ducks Unlimited and all proceeds from the show benefit Ducks Unlimited’s conservation efforts.
This year’s line-up includes Roger Creager, Reckless Kelly, Brandon Rhyder, Rich O’Toole, Micky and the Motorcars and Jeff Hobbs and the Jacks. Gates open at 2 p.m., and the music starts at 2:30 p.m. This is a rain or shine event.
“Duck Jam in Aggieland gets bigger and better every year, so we’re looking forward to another great concert in April,” said David Schuessler, national director of events and volunteer promotions for DU. “People will want to get their tickets in advance because we are expecting a sold-out show.”
In addition to the outstanding musical talent this year, World Champion duck callers John Stephens and Jim Ronquest of Rich-N-Tone calls will take the stage that evening for a duck-calling tribute to Texas country music.
