Where the Artist
Go long entertainment and bmi team up to host hurricane michael relief benefit
November 23, 2018 -
In October, Hurricane Michael became the worst storm to ever hit the gulf coast of Florida. The storm brought heart-breaking devastation to the small beach towns of Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach.
The ties between country music and this special part of Florida run deep. Many country artists, writers and producers have houses on the Port St. Joe harbor, and Brothers Osborne recorded their most recent CD there and called the record “Port St. Joe”.
Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach have also been the gracious hosts for the last ten years of the popular songwriter festival, Blast On the Bay, which features some of Nashville biggest hitmakers. Hurricane Michael struck just 2 days before the 10th Annual 2018 Blast On The Bay was to start, stopping this year’s festival in it’s tracks.
Now, Nashville wants to help. On Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. the writers from Blast On The Bay, along with GoLong Entertainment and BMI, are holding the Hurricane Michael Relief Benefit Show at 3rd & Lindsley, one of Nashville’s premiere nightclubs. There will be performances by roughly 20 of Nashville’s most successful tunesmiths, including Earl Bud Lee, Jesse Rice, Steve Bogard, Danny Myrick, Kent Blazy, Will Rambeaux, Tyler Reeve, Brett Jones, Jerry Salley, Tim Buppert, Wil Nance, Steve Williams, Sherrie’ Austin, just to name a few. The show will also feature a short set by the Currys, an all-brother group from Port St. Joe, with Vinyl Radio, Nashville’s favorite retro rockers closing out the night.There will be small door charge and donations can be made throughout the evening. All proceeds will go directly to those hardest hit in Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach.
The Florida panhandle has been very good to the music community of Nashville and this will be a chance for Nashville to open it’s heart and give back. Let’s not forget the “forgotten coast”.
