    Clash of the Country Music Festivals




    (June 21, 2015 Jacksonville, FL) Summers in Jacksonville have always had a lot of events happen from concerts, summer camps, beach festivals, Fourth of July celebrations and, of course, The Florida Country Superfest. Last year’s Country Superfest was our first annual festival that sold out due to the artists who performed last year. CMA Fest last year was a week before Florida Country Superfest which worked out well. It at least gave the fans a chance to go to CMA Fest before they went to Florida Country Superfest. This year’s festival, however, was in competition against Nashville’s own CMA Fest, which is a really bad idea. The consequences for this could be low ticket sales, a lineup that may be a hit or miss line up, and frustration with the promoters who scheduled the Superfest event. So, here is a comparison or “clash” of the country music festivals……It’s time for CMA Fest vs Florida Country Superfest.

    Let’s talk about crowds. Each festival brings in a lot of people; some of them come from all over the state, even some people from outside the country. CMA and Superfest brought in a lot of crowds last year by having the best choices for headliners. When performers were announced who would be clo...   [Read More]

Wiley Foundation was founded in 2010 by the Wiley family after experiencing a stroke in their family, to make people more aware of the risk of stroke and the ways that it can be prevented. Our first goal is better stroke awareness and treatment. We never would have imagined that Joe would have had a stroke. We didn’t know any of the warning signs that in retrospect were present as much as several days before. We have come to realize that while your risk of suffering a stroke increases with your age that it still can strike people of any age.

    King Sunny Ade Coming To PV Concert Hall On Friday, July 31, 2015




    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (June 8, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly welcomes the king of Nigerian juju music, King Sunny Ade & His African Beats, to the stage on Friday, July 31, 2015. Tickets for King Sunny Ade & His African Beats will go on sale to the public this Friday, June 12 at 10 a.m.

    Since the evolution of juju music in Nigeria in the 1930s, no artist has made a more lasting impact in the genre than King Sunny Ade. As a singer, composer and guitarist, he has succeeded over the years in taking this Nigerian social music type to international heights. Ade came on the scene in 1966, following his induction as a samba player in a small group led by showman and comedian Baba Sala, known in real life as Moses Olaiya. And with his own 10-piece band, the Green Spots, Ade made his first record in 1967, playing the guitar solos himself. He however, blazed into prominence a year after with a hit single in praise of Stationery Stores football club which earned him a Gold disc as a result of its massive sales. Since then Ade has been in the limelight.

    The late 60s found Ade searching for a credible sound identity that tended to fuse the influence of Tunde Nightingale with the techniques of his mentor, Moses Olaiya, in ...   [Read More]

    Bike the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail




    Just west of bustling downtown Jacksonville, the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail, one of north Florida's oldest, most unique trails. Once a part of the CSX railway line, the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail is a thoroughfare for hikers, bikers, and equestrians. This unique park provides a 14.5-mile greenway between Imeson Road and County Road 121, just past the town of Baldwin. A dense tree canopy shelters much of the nearly 15-mile paved path, providing habitat for hawks, wood storks, stilts and belted kingfishers. You're also likely to encounter turkeys, alligators, rabbits, gopher tortoises and coral snakes. Beware the latter, a venomous species with wide black and red bands broken by narrow yellow rings.

    Photo Courtesy: @guyhasnoface  

    The Imeson Road trailhead, closest to Jacksonville, is a good place to start an out-and-back journey. Here you'll find the first of several restroom facilities and benches along the trail. This also marks the start of a separate equestrian trail that runs in the adjacent tree line, except where creek crossings bring trail users together.

    Alligator Tries To Enter Walmart In Florida Monday Night




    Apopka, Fl - A 6 ft alligator hung out at the entrance of a Florida Wal-Mart Superstore Monday Night. The gator (pictured below) wasn't afraid of shoppers and hung out in front of the moving doors for about a hour. The doors even opened multiple times for the creature but the gator remained outside.
