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]

Steve Miller Band with guests Los Lonely Boys April 2nd at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre!
Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late ‘60s. with albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music - and society - could be in the years to come. Then, in the ‘70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock ‘n’ roll music that was polished, exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit followed hit in what seemed like an endless flow: “The Joker,” “Livin’ in the USA,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Rock’n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” “Jungle Love,” and “Abracadabra” among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable when they come on the radio – and impossible not to sing along with. Running through Miller’s catalogue is a combination of virtuosity and songcraft along with melodic vocals and signature guitar riffs. His parents were jazz aficionados – Les Paul was his godfather – so as a budding guitarist and singer, Mill... [Read More]
