CENTER STAGE (Palafox & Garden)


3:00pm — Family Friendly Entertainment
5:30pm — Characters on the Go


6:45pm — Modern Eldorados

The Modern Eldorados were formed in 1996 as a vehicle for singer/songwriter Gretsch Lyle’s original brand of classic country music. Raised in a family of musicians, Lyles was heavily influenced by his grandparent’s generation of country greats. Growing up in rural Baldwin County, Alabama he began singing and playing guitar by the age of six and wrote his first song at sixteen. From a very early age he felt the calling to follow in the footsteps of his heroes Marty Robbins, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash. In both sound and style, Gretsch Lyles is the embodiment of his musical influences.

 


8:30pm — Blend & DJ

Blend is the a cappelaa doo-wop group bringing back hits from the 50’s and 60’s with a twist of fun! They make it very clear in their frivolous act that they love what they do.

 


8:45pm — Dew Pendleton

Like the man himself, the music of Dew Pendleton cannot be easily defined or pigeonholed into any one genre. Born in Alabama and raised on the family farm, you might expect to find him as country as that all sounds, but it is only a small part of the puzzle that creates his unique sound, a sound that is crafted by the honesty of country, the soul of gospel, and the sheer fun of rock.

 


10:30pm – 1:15am — DJ Rob Nice

Having appeared as guest DJ on ABC’s Good Morning America 6 times, DJ Rob Nice has been a high demand, high energy DJ for over a decade. DJ Rob Nice has toured the country with artists such as Nelly and Lil’ Wayne, and at the age of 15 he hosted a daily show on Q93fm, New Orleans #1 Station. DJ Rob Nice hosted the annual NBA All Star game three times, including Dallas in 2010 in front of 108,000 people. DJ Rob Nice is also the voice of the NBA New Orleans Hornets, when he is home in New Orleans and not on the road.

“Not Quite Fab” is Dickie Williams (Gulf Breeze) as Paul McCartney, Glen Vignolo (Pensacola) as John Lennon, Jim DeStafney (Pensacola) as George Harrison, and Jeff Fitzpatrick (Niceville) as Ringo Starr. This is a “professional show” not a top 40 nightclub gig. Every age group from children to retirees loves the Beatles music and sings along and dances to nearly every song. Perfect entertainment for any event or age group. The real show is the full experience, sounds like- looks like- feels like the Beatles.

Posted on: June 12th, 2014 by Chris

Tim McGraw is on his Sundown Heaven Town Tour with Kip Moore and Cassadee Pope and thinks the two of them along with the crop of other newer artists has country music in good hands in the coming years.

A lot of “what’s country” questions have been tossed about since last fall with everyone from Zac Brown to Ronnie Dunn and just about everyone in between sharing an opinion and Tim’s is, besides his openers, he’s also a fan of Jerrod Niemann and David Nail, and thinks the future of country music is bright.

He tells The Bangor Daily News, “I think country music is in great hands.”

As for his own future, he says he’s going to keep making music and touring, and as someone who has performed with many different artists throughout his career, Tim says if he could perform with anyone, “Merle Haggard would be somebody I’d love to sing with. He’s such a huge icon.  And of course, singing with my wife is always good.” Tim’s Sundown Heaven Town Tour will continue through August 9th, then he’ll release his new album, also called Sundown Heaven Town, on September 16th.

Chris Young In Cast For 6 Weeks

Posted on: June 10th, 2014 by Chris

Chris Young’s kitchen accident has turned into quite the fiasco for him. What was thought to have been a bad but managable cut has resulted in two surgeries to repair tendons and now several weeks in a cast and rehab.

His mom, Becky Harris says on her Facebook page, his fingers are “looking good color wise,” and, “He will be in a soft cast for another two weeks, then in a hard cast for the next 4 after that.”

She also added that she’s not sure about the stitches but, “there are a LOT of them. His surgeon did a great job on the second surgery, and obviously we can’t see the repair work due to the cast.”

Chris updated his page with a picture last night…

Chris will play Tour For the Troops aboard NAS Pensacola on July 9 with Josh Thompson.
