Blues Traveler to Rock the PCB Seafood, Wine & Music Festival

by August 20, 2008 • 5 comments

The Panama City Beach Seafood, Wine & Music Festival in cooperation with Neste Marketing Nashville, proudly announces BLUES TRAVELER will perform at the event Saturday October 11, 2008.

David Letterman named them his “favorite band”, BLUES TRAVELER effectively launched the jam-rock revolution of the 1990’s. Their massive musical imprint includes over eight albums — six of them gold or platinum — and they’ve sold more than 10 million discs overall.

Their 1994 album, “Four,” which included the Grammy-winning single “Run-Around,” went multi-platinum and launched the band into the stratosphere of the jam-band genre. They’re still rockin’ the universe today and their latest studio album “North Hollywood Shootout” is set to be released August 26th. The first single “You, Me and Everything” is available on iTunes as of today and can be purchased by clicking here.

Led by John Popper’s virtuoso harmonica playing, they are best known for their hit songs “Run-Around”, “Hook” and “But Anyway”, and Saturday October 11, 2008 everyone attending the Panama City Beach Seafood, Wine & Music Festival will get a chance to experience them live and loud.

Fresh off a summer tour with “LIVE” & “COLLECTIVE SOUL”, they’re ready to rock the beach for the first time ever.

Southern rock & a hippy band for a wine and music festival. That’s the way to revamp the city’s image. Guess it will be Boones Farm & holding hands with your sister while trudging through the feed trough…er buffet.

Whoever just made that comment, “Ilovejack” is a jerk. I know there are “wine” snobs out there but it doesn’t mean that someone who grew up loving 38 Special are going there to drink either! And the whole “holding hands with your sister” thing is just rude. Grow up and find God dude!

I would love to see Panama City Beach bring Christian venues here like Casting Crowns or Mercy Me and do some outdoor concerts like Atlanta does. We finally got a Christian station, lets’ catch up!!

Obviously IloveJack, you must know the Winery in PCB showcases wines made from various fruits. However, just because Ilovejack’s wine experiences end at Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill, doesn’t mean that these wines are of the same caliber. Time to expand your horizons beyond a basic 12 pack?

PCB would be wise to continue marketing to the 38 Special crowd and any of the groups from the 70’s/80/s. We are the ones who have been coming to PCB since Spring Break in the 70’s. The more memories we enjoy here, the more often we will come back. And we are the ones that spend the $$$$, which is what tourism is all about, right?

The heck with the White Sale. Give us That 70’s Show!

Casting Crowns, Mercy Me, LaCrae for the teens, and many more options would draw some big crowds, too.

Praise God for the beautiful beach, the awesome ocean, and southern rock and roll.

If you check out the festival website,
you will see the entire, and growing, list of entertainment and functions that the festival is adding everyday. Forget the wine, music and seafood on an individual level and look at the whole package… it really seems to be coming together as an all around event covering many interest and activities. Hopefully this vision will continue in the years to come and grow. Oh… and I heard that Mercy Me was discussed… but not available.
Bottom line…. you can’t please all of the people all of the time… but I’m sure out of the three days… there will be something for everyone to enjoy!
Support it and it will grow!
