The Pensacola Beach Songwriters Fest – Sept. 29-Oct. 2

Posted on: September 17th, 2016 by brent

Welcome and thanks for taking the journey with us! Let the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival introduce you to the songwriters who create the songs that inspire our daily lives. Songs create moods that can put smiles on your faces or tears in your eyes. There are so many emotions that live within us each and every day that a song sometimes has a way of healing.

Hear the stories that inspired the birth of these songs. You will be surprised to learn that the artist on the radio might not be the songwriter. The variety of songwriters is as different as the grains of sand that cover our beautiful pristine beaches. Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival is your chance to meet the writers and hear the stories behind the songs.

Like the marriage between the lyrics and the melody of a song, the marriage between the beautiful white sands of Pensacola Beach and the songwriters make this the perfect combination to kick back and enjoy Pensacola Beach September 29 – October 2!

Dolly Parton at the Pensacola Bay Center

Posted on: July 11th, 2016 by Candy

DOLLY PARTON IS BRINGING ‘PURE & SIMPLE’ TOUR TO PENSACOLA!

 

TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY, JULY 22 AT 10AM

 

Pensacola, FL (July 11, 2016) — Dolly Parton is set to bring her boundless energy to Pensacola Bay Center on November 29 as she continues her first major U.S. and Canadian tour in more than 25 years. Tickets and VIP packages for Parton’s Pure & Simple tour go on sale Friday, July 22 at 10am at the Pensacola Bay Center Box Office, online at ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 745 – 3000.

 

As one of the hottest concert tickets of 2016, Parton’s legion of fans are destined to sell out the shows quickly. Parton’s set list will include hit songs all while weaving in a few new songs from her new album Pure & Simple, set for release this summer. She will also be playing songs that have not been heard live for decades.

 

“We’re so excited to get out there and see the fans again. I’m really looking forward to singing songs the fans have not heard in a while, as well as the hits, while debuting a few new ones off Pure & Simple,” Parton said.

 

The entertainment icon is on one of the biggest hot streaks of her career after her hugely successful TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” attracted a network record of more than 15.8 million viewers. It was the most watched movie on network TV in more than three years and was released earlier this year.

Miracle on Palafox – Raises over $15,000

Posted on: November 23rd, 2015 by brent

This year for Christmas Wishes, we are assisting United Way in helping needy children have toys under their Christmas tree.  It started with an idea…  What if we could raise thousands of dollars and fulfill more toy wishes this year?  The United Way says that Christmas 2015 will likely see the largest number of kids in need but there are fewer organizations who are able to help.

Next we came up with how we could do it… Have a Concert!  William Michael MorganMo Pitney and SCOTTY MCCREERY all agreed to come to Pensacola and donate their talent to the show.

Next…  how do we get a location that can hold enough people to make a difference?  That’s where Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union came in.  Gulf Winds has underwritten the cost of doing a concert event at the Saenger Theater on Palafox. Thanks to the generosity of Gulf Winds, all of the proceeds of the show go directly to United Way to help some needy children have something under their Christmas tree.

The result?  We raised over $15,072 to be distributed by the United Way!

United Way Escambia County is the fiscal agent. Florida Solicitation of Contributions Act# CH746.
