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]
