    2014 was a big year for Daryl Hall and John Oates, as they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors in their own right. They have become such musical influences on some of today’s popular artists that the September 2006 cover of Spin Magazine’s headline read: “Why Hall and Oates are the New Velvet Underground.” Their artistic fan base includes Rob Thomas, John Mayer, Brandon Flowers of The Killers, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and MTV’s newest hipsters Gym Class Heroes who dubbed their tour “Daryl Hall for President Tour 2007.” One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion. <...   [Read More]

    Meet the Boatanista - Lisa Almeida




    How many people have you heard say they were involved in a particular activity “before they could walk”? In most cases, it is a figure of speech used to emphasize a point. In my case it is the literal truth.

    I was a boater long before I could walk. And it is not just a figure of speech for me to claim that boating is etched into my DNA. I have visible proof.

    My favorite photo hangs on the wall over my breakfast table. It is a vintage, 1950s-era image of two water skiers waving to the camera as they are pulled behind a boat. The man and woman in the photo are competitive water skiers at world-famous Cypress Gardens. They are young, and fit, and smiling. What the photo does not reveal is that the two are among the best at their craft, and have set various records and won numerous accolades.

    It is a photo of my parents. To say I grew up boating is no exaggeration. In fact, before I could crawl, my parents would secure my baby carrier firmly near the helm of the boat as they practiced their routines. I took to boating from the start. My parents told me that the movement of the water would most often lull me to sleep.

    When other kids were riding tricycles I was learning to ski. When other kids were pl...   [Read More]

    Visit Devils Den - Swim, Snorkle and Scuba Hot Spot.




    Visit one of North America's most prehistoric places, Devil's Den -- an underground spring inside a dry cave in central Florida. The remains of many extinct animals from the Pleistocene Age (2 million - 10,000 years ago) were discovered at Devil's Den, including the bones of early man, dating back to 7,500 B.C.

    The pleasant year-around temperature of 72 degrees in the Den allows comfortable diving, winter or summer. On cold winter mornings you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the cave's chimney. Hence, the early settlers called the place Devil's Den.

    You'll find open water and cavern diving at its best & will be fascinated by the rock formations with stalactites and 33 million year old fossil beds, truly a natural wonder. On a cold winter morning you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the chimney. Thus, the early settlers gave the name Devil's Den.

    Crystal clear water, year round 72 degree temperatures, ancient rock formations with stalactites, fossil beds, and much more. Devil's Den is truly a natural wonder. Bring the family and enjoy a day of fun and relaxation at Devil's Den.

    3 Story Lines Going into Jaguars Training Camp




    It’s about that time again where coolers and tailgate gear gets busted out of the garage, jerseys and hats get washed, and folks prepare to say goodbye to their significant others because the glory of the NFL is almost back! We’re headed into training camp and the Jacksonville Jaguars, by all accounts, have had a fantastic off-season. A lot of change has happened with this team and there is a buzz about this team that hasn’t been felt in a long time. The city is ready to fall in love with the Jaguars again, from all of the stadium upgrades to the positive things the team is doing in the community and the only thing that’s missing a competitive product on the field.

    To help you get amped up for training camp and for those who haven’t paid attention to any of the off-season stuff, here’s the 3 storylines to follow during camp:

    When a player is drafted in the top 10 of the NFL Draft, it’s expected that the rookie is going to produce for a team and right away. Even more so when that player is a quarterback. But GM David Caldwell is taking a different approach when it comes to rookie QB Blake Bortles. It has been said that Bortles has...   [Read More]

    It's back: Coca-Cola reintroduces Surge soda




    Fans thirsty for a taste of ‘90s nostalgia – or those who are simply craving a citrus-flavored sparkling beverage with a kick – can rejoice in the news that SURGE is back after a 12-year hiatus.

    SURGE, which debuted in 1996 and was taken off the market in the early 2000s, is making a comeback thanks, in part, to a passionate and persistent community of brand loyalists who have been lobbying The Coca-Cola Company to bring back their favorite drink over the last few years. SURGE is Coke’s first discontinued brand to return to the market.

    The SURGE re-launch represents two additional firsts for Coke. The brand, which will be offered in its original formula in 12-packs of 16-oz. cans featuring the same retro design from yesteryear, is part of an innovative distribution deal between Coca-Cola and Amazon. A limited supply of SURGE will be sold exclusively through the online retailer atwww.amazon.com/surge, marking the first time Coke has distributed a product solely through e-commerce.

    “If expectations are met, this may be only the first of a variety of efforts we explore to launch niche products through e-commerce relationships,” said Wendy Clark, president of sparkling and strateg...   [Read More]




    Mellow Mushrooms 40th Birthday Celebration

    The menu selections will be 30 cents for Coke products, 75 cents for Michelob, Budweiser or PBR and $2.50 for a small cheese pizza.

    Mellow Mushroom will also be hosting a contest for customers to win a trip to Amsterdam for two.

Those without an Instagram account can upload their images to ww.40yearsbaked.com.

    Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers has come a long way from its humble roots, born out of a single pizza shop in Atlanta during the freewheeling hippie culture of 1974. The founders had a simple dream: to make the most delicious, craveable slice of pizza on the planet.

    Mellow Mushroom has recently expanded to more than 170 locations in ...   [Read More]

    ROLLICKING AMERICANA ACT THE BLACK LILLIES TO PERFORM AT THE COLONIAL QUARTER ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2014




    St. Augustine, FL (September 9, 2014) – The St. Johns Cultural Events Division, St. Johns Cultural Council and Flying Saucer proudly present The Black Lillies at the Colonial Quarter in downtown St. Augustine on Friday, November 7. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, September 12 at 10 a.m.

    “With one foot planted firmly in Appalachian music culture and the other always expanding and evolving, The Black Lillies have created a unique sound embraced by fans old and young,” - Vanity Fair.

    The Black Lillies are fronted by the best-matched male-female vocal duo since Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris,” says News OK. It sounds like an overstatement – unless you’ve heard The Black Lillies. Then it sounds like a reasonable claim. The Black Lilllies are a band for the ages, not the slick, soulless music that seems to get most of the radio airplay, but rich, rootsy tunes performed with as much heart as technical virtuosity. This commitment to authenticity has earned them accolades from outlets as diverse as Rolling Stone Magazine, who calls them one of “the most buzzworthy new acts in country and Americana,” and the Wall Street Journal, who praised their “rootsy flair... a winsome hybrid ...   [Read More]

    Lonestar at the Jacksonville Landing Recap




    As summer is starting to come to a close, the people of Jacksonville got a free concert from 99.9 Gator Country at the Landing. This time, we got to see one of the legendary bands in country music, Lonestar. This band has been together for 30 years and has released a new album called “Life As We Know It”. But before they came on, Natalie Nicole Green and the Steve Flowers Band took the stage to open up for Lonestar. They did a lot of cover songs and some original songs. Both of them made a good impression on the audience.

    Another thing to point out was the return of the lead singer, Richie McDonald. He is the mainstay of Lonestar and with his return in 2012, brought Lonestar back and better than ever. Some people may not know that Lonestar came here in 2007 but with a different lead singer. I actually listened to him perform one of the songs Richie originally performed, and it was not the same. But the band is back with the lineup of Richie McDonald, Michael Britt, Keech Rainwater, and Dean Sams.  

    After the openers performed, Lonestar took the stage and opened up with their classic hit “No News” and continued on with “My Front Porch Looking In”. This band has a lot of good songs,...   [Read More]




    O.A.R. RETURNS TO PERFORM AT ST. AUGUSTINE AMPHITHEATRE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2014




    St. Augustine, FL (August 4, 2014) – Roots-and-reggae jam band, O.A.R., will return this fall to perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre along with special guest, Andy Grammer. The show will take place on Friday, November 14 and tickets will go on sale to the public this Friday, August 8 at 10AM.

    Classic American author Thomas Wolfe famously stated “you can’t go home again,” but don’t tell that to the members of O.A.R. on their eighth studio album, THE ROCKVILLE LP, the shape-shifting rock band found that returning home triggered a journey of creative renewal and inspiration.

    “This isn’t about us going back to our musical roots per se,” says lead singer Marc Roberge, who founded O.A.R. in 1996 with his Rockville, Md. high school classmates, drummer Chris Culos, guitarist Richard On, and bassist Benj Gershman (saxophonist Jerry DePizzo joined while the group was at Ohio State University). “It’s about us getting inspired by the place we came from. We’d drive the same roads, visit the old haunts, and spend time with our people. Rockville was the catalyst then, and it’s the catalyst now.”

    For the first time in a while, the band found that visiting the...   [Read More]
