OCVB Hosts LN & Axl in Virtual Acoustic Series

Join the Orange Convention & Visitors Bureau Thursday, May 14, 2020, at 7:00 P.M. for our Virtual Acoustic Series. Enjoy this virtual event from the comfort of your home featuring LIVE entertainment by LN & Axle.

LN & Axle are from Beaumont and play new and classic rock. Ellen (LN) was singing before she could talk and by the time she was 8, she was sitting in with local bands belting out both classic and modern hits. At 13 she was gigging with popular country singer, Casey Chesnutt, and by 14 was fronting her own musical project with some of the best young musicians in the area. She has opened for blues legend Johnny Winter, pop star Drake Bell, Dave Fenley, Charlie Robison, and Nic Armstrong,  as well as performed with Black Sabbath drummer Vinny Appice, Dokken guitarist George Lynch, Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford, and entertained crowds at The Southeast Texas State Fair, Frogfest, Galveston Pleasure Pier, Kemah Boardwalk, White Oak Music Hall, and Southeast Texas Mardi Gras.

Ellen sings a mixture of both classic and modern music and has performed all over Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana. She recently released her first EP and is currently working on a full original album with renowned songwriter Jason Greene.

You can view the performance live and listen to the replay on the Orange Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Facebook page.
