Jaguars’ Home Opener Confirmed For Sunday at EverBank Field
The NFL and Jaguars confirmed yesterday that the team’s home opener vs. the Tennessee Titans will be played Sunday at 1 p.m. at EverBank Field, as scheduled.
The Jaguars followed that announcement with word that the team and owner Shad Khan will make a $1 million donation to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund, with Khan personally appealing to the Jacksonville community ahead of Sunday’s game to join the recovery effort assisting those affected locally by Hurricane Irma.
“Jacksonville gets labeled as ‘small market,’ but it has a heart bigger than any community I’ve been associated with in my life,” Khan said. “Jacksonville will recover and come back stronger than ever, but who couldn’t use a little help from our friends?
“I’m hoping that our sponsors, partners and fans will think of Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund this week and give what they can. Then, we gather Sunday at EverBank Field to show the world we’re back in a big way, as a team and as a community. This is Jax As One.”
To help deliver a home-field advantage on Sunday and provide both relief and reward to those affected, Khan and the Jaguars will donate 5,000 ... [Read More]

Styx, Foreigner, & Don Felder Coming to St. Augustine
St. Augustine, FL (February 4, 2014) – Styx returns to perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Friday, May 23, 2014 with Foreigner and Don Felder. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, February 7 at 10am.
Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips, have performed more live since ’99 than all of the previous years of its career combined. Two Super-Bowl appearances, two more studio albums and no end in sight, STYX continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.
Spawned from a suburban Chicago basement in the early ‘70s, Styx would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late '70s and early '80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads. Paradise Theater became Styx's biggest hit of their career (selling over three million copies in a three-year period), as they became one of the U.S. top rock acts due to such big hit singles as "Too Much Time on My Hands". It also marked the first time in history that a band released four consecutive triple-platinum albums.
With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock... [Read More]
Robert Cray Band To Perform At The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL--(Monday, February 3, 2014) — Blues guitarist and five-time GRAMMY award winning artist Robert Cray Band will perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Friday, April 4 at 8:00PM.
The five-time Grammy Award winner summarized 35 years of mastery on the debut Nozzle release Live From Across the Pond (2006), an electrifying two-CD concert set drawn from a series of shows (opening for Eric Clapton) at London’s Royal Albert Hall. When the time came to follow up that widely praised collection with a studio recording, Cray viewed it as an opportunity to move his sound in other directions.
He found exactly what he was looking for by turning to one of his oldest friends and colleagues: bassist Richard Cousins, whose tenure with the Robert Cray Band began with its barnstorming regional origins in Eugene, Oregon, in 1974 and extended through 1991, encompassing such early high-water marks as Strong Persuader (1986) and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (1988), both winners of the best contemporary blues performance Grammy.
I’ve known Richard for 40 years,” Cray says. “We go back to 1969, and we grew up in the same area together. We’ve always had a really good rapport together stage... [Read More]

It also offers a rare opportunity for fans to see them perform in more intimate settings than the Goos normally visit on their many live treks.
Tickets for this seated show will go on sale this Friday, February 7 at 10AM. Tickets will be available for purchase at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre box offices, findmytix.com, and all Ticketmaster outlets.
