FOUR JAGUARS PLAYERS SELECTED TO THE 2018 PRO BOWL
Four players from the Jacksonville Jaguars have been selected to the 2018 Pro Bowl.
The Jaguars’ four Pro Bowl selections are their most in a season since 1999 (seven players selected) and their four defensive players selected to the Pro Bowl are the most in a season in franchise history. Over the last two seasons, the Jaguars have added four Pro Bowl players to their roster, three via free agency (DT Malik Jackson in 2016, DE Calais Campbell and CB A.J. Bouye in 2017) and one via the draft (CB Jalen Ramsey in the first round of 2016). Bouye and Ramsey are the first Jaguars duo to make the Pro Bowl at the same position in the same year since DT John Henderson and DT Marcus Stroud were selected in 2004.
Tenth-year DE Calais Campbell has been selected to his third Pro Bowl (2014, 2015, 2017). Campbell, who currently owns the Jaguars single-season franchise record with a career-high and AFC-leading 14.5 sacks, was signed as an unrestricted free agent on March 10, 2017. Campbell finished second in the NFL in Pro Bowl fan voting for defensive ends. Campbell joins Tony Brackens (1999) as the only defensive ends to be named to the Pro Bowl in franchise history

The Head and the Heart Coming to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL--(Tuesday, February 18, 2014) — Indie Folk artist The Head and The Heart will perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Thursday, May 8 at 8:00PM.
Leaving a variety of day jobs and academic pursuits, The Head and the Heart came together in the summer of 2009, during frequent visits to the open mic night at Conor Byrne in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. California-transplant Josiah Johnson and Virginia-native Jonathan Russell formed the core songwriting partnership, quickly adding keyboardist Kenny Hensley to the mix. The luminous Charity Rose Thielen, violin and vocals, had just returned from a year of studying and playing music in Paris. Drummer Tyler Williams cold left a successful band in Virginia after Jon sent him the demo of “Down in the Valley,” relocating across states to be a part of this. Finally, Chris Zasche, was bartending at Conor Byrne and mentioned one day that he’d be happy to play bass for the nascent band. It all felt right: The Head and the Heart was born. The band entered Seattle’s Studio Litho in early 2010 to record these songs that had been kicking and twisting in the catalytic development of their live show. Recorded by Shawn Simmons at Studio Litho and Steven Agui... [Read More]
Weezer Coming to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre
St. Augustine, FL (February 17, 2014) – Rock band Weezer is set to perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Friday, June 6, 2014. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, February 21 at 10am.
Their debut album Weezer (aka “The Blue Album”), producer by Ric Ocasek, has been certified triple platinum in the United States, and remains the band’s all-time best seller. Upon completing the record, Weezer went on hiatus temporarily as Cuomo studied at Harvard. With help from the Spike Jonze-directed video, the single "Undone (The Sweater Song)" became a hit in the fall of 1994. But by the time the album's final single, "Say It Ain't So," was released in the summer of 1995, the group had gone on hiatus once again, with Cuomo returning to Harvard.
1996 saw Weezer's much-awaited second LP, entitled Pinkerton, released. It was quite different from 'Weezer'; the guitars were more gruff, the lyrics were deeper and much more exposed, and the band's talent and style had matured considerably. Weezer released three singles from Pinkerton: "El Scorcho", "The Good Life", and "Pink Triangle". Pinkerton eventually went gold in record sales and has ... [Read More]

Ponte Vedra Beach, FL--(Tuesday, February 11, 2014) — Todd Snider will be hitting the road again this spring, but this time with a multi-media show starring the wit, honesty and spontaneity he’s best known for. The tour will stop at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Wednesday, April 23.
Kicking the show off will be a 30-minute preview of East Nashville Tonight. Directed by the Barnes Brothers, the film was originally intended to be a documentary on Snider, but soon turned into what has been best described as a stoner musical.

The book features insightful and often hilarious classic Todd storytelling with chapter titles such as “Talkin’ Margaritaville Blues,” “I’m Tight With Slash,” Jerry Jeff’s Balls” and “Drugs.” Following the reading, Todd will answer questions and take song requests.
