After 16 years, The “I-4 Eyesore" is going to be completed
Construction of the half-finished The Majesty Building in Altamonte Springs has been idle for years and now the owner of the infamous “I-4 Eyesore” says the building will be completed within a year. Two years was the original completion estimate when the project began in 2001.
The Majesty building will be the tallest in Seminole County and can be seen from many angles in Altamonte Springs. There is even a facebook page started for the unfinished building asking for the building to be torn down.
In 2001, SuperChannel set out to complete the project only using donations. On their website, they say that the building is going to be an 18 story office, retail and broadcast facility, that is designed to serve the business and ministry needs of the Central Florida community.
Last week, the Altamonte Springs city manager said they met with the owners and were told that the project would be finished within the next year. Lets all hope that this will finally happen.... [Read More]

Gentlemen Of The Road St. Augustine Stop Over Recap
St. Augustine FL - “Gentlemen of the Road Stopover” was the biggest event that has happened this year and 904 Happy Hour went down to St Augustine’s Francis Field get the low down. I got to go down to Francis Field both days of the festival to check out the music and the crowd. From observing the number of attendees, it was said that there were at least 30,000 people that attended the festival. The line-up contained 12 bands for the two day festival. Mumford and Sons was the headliner for the festival and they performed a great show and gave the best performance their fans have ever seen. What also makes this a big event is that this was the final show for the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover and St. Augustine was the last stop. This festival was very artsy and brought many attendees from Jacksonville to Tampa and some people from out of the state as well.
Day 1 went off smoothly and showcased Willy Mason, Thao and the Get Down and Stay Down, The Walkmen and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Each band gave a great performance and had their unique style. I categorized some of these bands as alternative, indie rock, or indie folk band. Each band performed a one hour set and I thought they all did a great job. When the night was over... [Read More]
