Post Great American Blues Festival In PC
Panama City is hosting a two day Great American Blues Festival.
A few of the headliners will be Canned Heat, Honey Island swamp Band, Joe Louis Walker and Royal Southern Brotherhood.
Unfortunately, there is No Camping and NO shade for the hot days of August.

I didn't realize it til yesterday one of the HISB guys just lived down the road from me. A teacher from here told me that he taught one of the guys in the band....turns out it was Trevor Brooks that lived about 3-4 miles from me. I have seen them a half dozen times and just never put 2+2 together.

Guess none of the North Florida contingent are interested.....what a shame.....this is a pretty good list of characters.

The musicians are fine it's the venue that sucks. Panama City beach is ghetto and does not draw a desirable crowd. That plus no camping is a real negative.

Not sure about that....this venue is beside Pier Park...which is a little more upscale than a lot of places. Of course, it will be mostly touristas there....and some of that can be a negative sometimes.

But yeah, it would be nice to camp.....Of course, their Tourist Development Council wants people to stay in their high-rise high-cost resorts close by.
I live close enough that I might travel back and forth to the venue....and not stay there. (50 miles or so).

I have seen the Honey Island Swamp Band a few times, the latest in a small club in New Orleans this year. Great/Fun band

Had no idea there was a venue by pier park. We were down there over the 4th and all we did was wait. Wait for the elevator, wait in traffic, wait to eat, and wait to park. I guess I am still bitter as I couldn't wait to get home. Steel pulse was playing pier park for the forth I guess they played that venue you mentioned

Hey maestro...where do you live???
You've got to know PC to appreciate it. There are tourist businesses and places the locals go....and that is two different things.
If you want to come back....let me know and maybe we can get together.

I live south of atlanta but my wife's father owns a condo in PCB so we go a few times a year because of a free place to stay. I will definitely try to hook up with you on my next trip down there. Are you going to magfest?

Diving for gold? Business or pleasure? Where?
