We. Are. Beat. This past weekend we had the pleasure of performing at Rock By The Sea 10, the tenth annual charity music festival on St. George Island, Florida. It was five straight days of live performances, great causes, beach games, and new friends–five straight days of going to bed too late, getting up too early, and then doing it all over again. It was an exhausting, happy blast, and we felt so warmly welcomed. Now we need to sleep for a week. Goodnight.
Big hugs and thanks are due to: Beth Gosnell and Steve Everett, and to the rest of the board of directors, for including us; our fellow artists, for impressing us daily; and the enthusiastic attendees, for supporting a good cause and making it a kick-ass weekend! If you’re unfamiliar with the festival, you should check it out here: http://www.rockbythesea.org/events. The festival collects funds for several cancer related causes (an immunotherapy lab at the University of Florida and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children), as well as artistic programming for the underprivileged and the local Franklin County Public Library. It’s great fun for a great cause, so check it out and mark off your calendar for next year.
