The DAMEANS 50th Year Reunion Concert was such an inspiring event!

Many thanks to the wonderful show of support both for the Dameans and for the Archdiocese of New Orleans Retreat Center!

The Dameans entertained a full house at Ursuline Academy Auditorium on Sunday, June 3rd, 2018.  The musical selections were familiar to so many of the 800 or so people that gathered.  The musicians invited all to sing along and participate.  Gary Ault, Mike Balhoff, Paul "Buddy" Ceasar, Gary Daigle and Darryl Ducote brought back so many wonderful memories with their songs and stories.  The Lord has blessed their work over the past 50 years and was certainly present with us as they reminded us of the many songs they have contributed to our worship services!
