North Beaches Art Walk @ Where Atlantic Blvd. meets the ocean
Jun 21 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
North Beaches Art Walk @ Where Atlantic Blvd. meets the ocean | Atlantic Beach | Florida | United States

North Beaches Artwalk is a free event held the third Thursday of each month from 5 to 9 pm. Featuring many local visual artists and live performers. Artwalk is held at the Atlantic Beach & Neptune Beach Town Centers.  Also at Adele Grage Cultural Center with a different featured artist every month.

With over 55 participating artists, Artwalk is a diverse art destination & shopping experience for the entire family. Local venues set the backdrop for this great monthly destination and community gathering.

The overall mission of Art Walk is to expose the community to the vast number of local artists right here at the Beaches and we thank all the local shops & restaurants for making it possible!  We welcome talent from all over Jacksonville to join North Beaches Art Walk.

 

The North Beaches Art Walk got its start in 2007 when Beaches art-industry professionals JoAnne Adams, Alice Gartland and Linda Stewart came together in hopes of recreating the popular art walk atmosphere of Downtown.

Through their nurturing and dedication, the event has grown considerably since its infancy. And on every third Thursday of the month, the streets of the Beaches Town Center erupt with creativity.

What was once a small pool of carefully selected artists has now become a bubbling ocean of art, a place where woodworkers comingle with jewelry designers and musicians play into the night. Welcoming to locals and out of towners alike, to say it’s a communal event would be putting it lightly; it’s an experience.

Beachside Buggies provides FREE rides to the residents and visitors of the beaches community.

It’s a perfect way to get around town on the evening of NBAW.

Andrew Sapin @ Hoptinger - Jax Beach
Jun 23 @ 10:00 pm

Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, Andrew Sapin was always destined to be someone great. Many of those fortunate enough to be around Andrew during his early years could see his natural talent in all thing sports. Gifted to be an athlete, Andrew found himself involved in many sports including basketball, football, and cycling. There are many who are given the gifts to be physically or musically talented. Andrew is one of those fortunate enough to be given the natural talent to succeed in both. Possibly his greatest skill is his ability to play a piece of music merely by hearing it.

Like many other talented musicians before him, Andrew drew inspiration from the people whom he loved the most. Although starting piano at the age of four, it was not until his grandpa’s passing that Andrew decided to focus on his musical career. Andrew’s grandpa was the one responsible for exposing him to musical legends such as Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder who had a huge impact on Andrew’s early musical tastes. With the passing of his grandfather, the transition from athlete to musician had been completed.

At the age of 16, Andrew began to DJ many local events in the Jacksonville area. Never one to shy away from an opportunity, these events included weddings, graduations, and birthdays for people coming from many different backgrounds. It was at these events that his musical tastes began to expand. Realizing that the Pop/Soul genre was definitely for him, Andrew picked up a guitar and taught himself how to play. To this day, it is nearly impossible to run into Andrew without a guitar somewhere close enough for him to reach.

No matter where his musical career may one day take him, Andrew will always remember those who are less fortunate then himself. As a member of Musicians On Call, a group dedicated to bringing live music to patients in hospitals, Andrew continues to give back to his community. It was in his recent performance with MOC in Miami, where he saw the joy that music could bring to those in the direst of situations that Andrew reaffirmed his love with music. From those who were able to hear Andrew play during the early part of his career or those who have yet to hear him, a performance by Andrew Sapin is one that you will not want to miss.

A dozen years into Rebelution’s stirring career, the release of the California reggae band’s fifth album Falling Into Place finds them more energized than ever. Touring relentlessly since 2014’s Count Me In debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae chart, the band’s members have expanded their songwriting horizons and recorded 11 tight new tracks that fuse an ever-youthful attitude of celebration with the mature perspective of men of the world. The lyrics of “Lay My Claim” get right to the point: “Let it all unfold straight from the soul.” It’s about working hard and then reaping the benefits, says singer/guitarist/lyricist Eric Rachmany – about “being present with the music instead of just thinking about the outcome and the limelight. We’re not making music to hit a certain demographic. We’re just making music that we enjoy!” For Falling Into Place, Rebelution’s four core members – Eric Rachmany, keyboardist Rory Carey, drummer Wesley Finley, and bassist Marley D. Williams – got some refreshing new perspectives by writing with different producers and writers and recording at multiple studios. For Rachmany, the creativity began with an inspirational trip to Jamaica, the birthplace of reggae, where he did some of the writing.  Dwayne “Supa Dups” Chin-Quee (Bruno Mars, Eminem) produced many of the tracks. Others feature the studio wizardry of Yeti Beats (Kool Keith, Los Rakas, and Rebelution’s two previous albums), while Donovan “DonCorleon” Bennett (Sean Paul, Vybz Kartel, Morgan Heritage) produced two. Locking it all together are rock-solid musicianship, a “sun splashy sound” (Relix), an intense work ethic, and constant devotion to their art. “We named the album Falling Into Place because all of our varied inspirations and experiences came together into one cohesive collection of music that we really love,” says Rachmany. As Billboard writes, “Their dynamic brand of original music weaves hypnotic threads of alt-rock and pop, retro-funk, blues, dub, even traditional Middle Eastern strains. Rachmany’s expressive voice wraps his soul-searching lyrics in beguiling melodies.”

Rebelution came together in Isla Vista in 2004. The college friends evolved into one of the brightest lights of modern reggae. Their debut album Courage to Grow, was named iTunes’ Editors’ Choice for Best Reggae Album of 2007. Bright Side of Life, released on their own 87 Music label in 2009, hit #1 on the iTunes Reggae chart. It was also the third most downloaded album in the U.S. in all genres, and reached #1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Albums chart and #34 on Billboard’s top 200. The triple-album Peace of Mind, released in 2012 with acoustic and dub versions, marked an even higher chart debut: #13 on the Billboard Top 200. It hit #1 on both the Reggae and Independent charts, and was the #4 iTunes album overall. Island Sun Weekly called the next album, 2014’s Count Me In “an energetic melding of catchy reggae sounds, sunny vocals and a pulse of alternative flare. It’s full of positive vibes, bounding island melodies, and inspiring reggae beats.” Sure enough, it made an even bigger splash, entering the Reggae chart at #1 and the Billboard overall chart at #14, thanks to the band’s best-ever week of sales. It also premiered in the top 5 on both the Independent Albums and Digital charts. On the road for at least half the year, Rebelution continues to bring its intense, sun-drenched California reggae to widening audiences all over.

Pixies @ Florida Theater | Jacksonville | Florida | United States

Chart topping 80s alternative band Pixies will perform their hits “Gigantic,” “Debaser,” “Here Comes Your Man,” and “Where is My Mind,” plus songs from their sixth studio album Head Carrier.

 

The Pixies are an American alternative rock band formed in 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts. The original line-up comprised Black Francis (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Joey Santiago (lead guitar), Kim Deal (bass, backing vocals) and David Lovering (drums). The band disbanded acrimoniously in 1993, but reunited in 2004. After Deal left in 2013, the Pixies hired Kim Shattuck as a touring bassist; she was replaced the same year by Paz Lenchantin, who became a permanent member in 2016.

The Pixies were associated with the 1990s alternative rock boom, and draw on elements including punk rock and surf rock. Their music known for its dynamic “loud-quiet” shifts and song structures. Francis is the Pixies’ primary songwriter; his often surreal lyrics cover offbeat subjects such as extraterrestrials, incest, and biblical violence. They achieved modest popularity in their home country, but were more successful in the United Kingdom and mainland Europe. Their jarring pop sound influenced bands such as Nirvana, Radiohead, Bush, Blur and Weezer. Their popularity grew in the years following their break-up, leading to sold-out world tours following their reunion in 2004

The tour setlist will celebrate some of their biggest hits plus gives fans an advance listen to new songs.

George was recently presented with the Ivor Novello lifetime achievement award in 2015 for his contribution to the music industry. As the first multi-racial band with an openly gay front man, Culture Club has set many records, including being the first band since The Beatles to have three Top Ten hits in America from a debut album.  The band reunited in 2014 embarked on two worldwide sold-out tours in 2015 and 2016.  Looking ahead, 2018 marks a new era for Boy George and Culture Club, as they are set to commence on a 45-date tour this summer and are currently working on new music.

Poison with special guests Cheap Trick @ Daily's Place
Jun 30 @ 7:00 pm
Poison with special guests Cheap Trick @ Daily's Place | Jacksonville | Florida | United States

Poison is an American rock band that achieved great commercial success in the mid-1980s through the mid-1990s. Poison has sold over 45 million records worldwide and has sold 15 million records in the United States alone. The band has also charted ten singles to the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, including six Top 10 singles and the Hot 100 number-one, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”. The band’s breakthrough debut album, the multi-platinum Look What the Cat Dragged In, was released in 1986 and they hit their peak with their second album, Open Up and Say… Ahh!, which became the band’s most successful album, being certified 5x platinum in the US. The popularity continued into the new decade with their third consecutive multi-platinum selling album, Flesh & Blood.

In the 1990s following the release of the band’s first live album, Swallow This Live, the band experienced some line up changes and the fall of pop metal with the grunge movement. But despite a drop in popularity the band’s fourth studio album, Native Tongue, still achieved Gold status and the band’s first compilation album, Poison’s Greatest Hits: 1986–1996, went double platinum. In the 2000s, with the original line up back together, the band found new popularity after a successful greatest hits reunion tour in 1999. The band began the new decade with the release of the long-awaited Crack a Smile… and More!, followed by the Power to the People album. The band toured almost every year to sold out stadiums and arenas. They released a brand new album, Hollyweird, in 2002 and in 2006 the band celebrated their 20-year anniversary with The Best of Poison: 20 Years of Rock tour and album, which was certified Gold and marked Poison’s return to the Billboard top 20 charts for the first time since 1993.

Band members have released several solo albums and starred in successful reality TV shows. After 30 years, the band is still recording music and performing. Since their debut in 1986, they have released seven studio albums, four live albums, five compilation albums, and have issued 28 singles to radio.

Barenaked Ladies have unvealed dates for their celebrated “Last Summer on Earth 2018” Tour with special guests Better Than Ezra and KT Tunstall. “Last Summer on Earth 2018” Tour kicks off on June 1st wrapping up on July 15th. With each ticket purchased, fans receive a download of BNL’s new album Fake Nudes!

“The Last Summer on Earth tour is something we all really look forward to.” states Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies. “From its inception, it’s been about putting together great live acts to give the audience a great night out. 2018 is going to be a blast, because we’re touring with friends!  Kevin Griffin from Better Than Ezra has been a songwriting collaborator for almost a decade and KT and I rocked together in Yukon Kornelius. This is going to be a great tour with lots of collaboration.”

Barenaked Ladies premiere their 15th studio album Fake Nudes today via Huffington Post. Fake Nudes builds off the band’s harmony-rich hybrid of folk and pop/rock and pushes into more eclectic sonic terrain marking the bands most dynamic record to date. Fake Nudes is available November 17th on Vanguard Records or pre-order now. Fake Nudes is finely crafted yet flowing with carefree energy, stylistically adventurous yet rooted in timeless melodies and unforgettable hooks. As Robertson explains, the close collaboration that fueled the making of the album has everything to do with the band’s deep connection on an artistic and individual level. “It’s all about trust, and knowing that you can rely on the strengths of your bandmates,” he says. “Whenever I go into the studio with new demos, I can always trust Jim and Ty and Kev’s instincts, and know that adding each of their personalities to the mix will make the songs that much better.” In bringing their latest album to life, Barenaked Ladies found their chemistry and camaraderie stronger than ever before. With next year marking the thirtieth anniversary of the Toronto-based band – which has now sold over 14 million albums worldwide and earned multiple JUNO Awards and Grammy nominations – Fake Nudes emerges as their most dynamic album to date. Through the years, the band has endlessly proved their undeniable power as a live act, with each set propelled by their palpable chemistry. “The way you get to 29 years together is by really working at it, by listening to each other and respecting each other,” says Robertson in reflecting on the longevity of the band. “When there’s a struggle, you’ve got to take a step back and say, ‘Whatever’s squeaking in the cogs of this machine, let’s work it out, because at the end of the day we get to play music every night and have all these people come out to sing along with us.’

Better Than Ezra is an American alternative rock band based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The band formed in 1988 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The current band consists of Kevin Griffin (vocals and guitar), Tom Drummond (bass guitar), and Michael Jerome (drums). The band has released 8 studio albums, the most recent one being 2014’s All Together Now. They are best known for their 1993 platinum album Deluxe and the 1995 single “Good”, which hit #1 on the Hot Modern Rocks Tracks charts. KT Tunstall is a Scottish singer/songwriter with a head for experimentation and an ear for a great pop melody.

Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they have also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.”  In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition among New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.

Following the Grammy-winning Rebirth of New Orleans, Rebirth Brass Band is at it again with Move Your Body, an infectious, groove-laden collection of hip-shakers sure to saturate the dance floor.

Rollicking originals like “Who’s Rockin, Who’s Rollin’?” and “Take ‘Em to the Moon” reaffirm the band’s position as head of the brass throne while the rasta-esque “On My Way” and leave-nothing-to-the-imagination lyrics of “HBNS” showcase the unit’s talent for penning unabashed party starters.

Boasting a mastery of Rebirth’s signature “heavy funk” sound, Move Your Body pushes and swings, leaving behind an 11 track thumbprint, approved by the Frazier brothers themselves, of a sultry Tuesday night spent dancing on their home court at the Maple Leaf Bar in New Orleans.

The Rebirth Brass Band live on the Front Porch of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Saturday, July 7, 2018 is a free event. All ages are welcome, no ticket needed. Please note: chairs will not be permitted on the Front Porch for this event.

On Tuesday, July 17, 2018, retro-revivalist country folk brother duo The Cactus Blossoms will play the Front Porch of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. This performance is free and open to the public. No tickets needed.

“There’s a ’60’s simplicity that’s instantly engaging – and the Minnesota duo’s pure, tight harmonies are superb.” – MOJO

The Cactus Blossoms sound uncannily like a sibling harmony act that just stepped off the stage of the Grand Ole Opry or the Louisiana Hayride in the ’40s or ’50s, and there’s a good reason for that – guitarists and singers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey are brothers (Jack adopted a stage name when he first stepped out as a singer/songwriter at the age of 19), and their voices fit together in a way that suggests a modern day approximation of what the Everly Brothers and the Louvin Brothers could deliver.

Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Jack and Page found themselves drawn to classic folk and country music, honing their songwriting skills with weekly gigs at former country 1940s honkytonk (and now music club) The Turf Club in St. Paul, MN. With the kind of blood harmonies that make your scalp tingle, the brothers made the genre their own and started working originals into their weekly sets of classics. A chance gig opening for JD McPherson brought him on board as a fan and eventually resulted in JD producing the Cactus Blossoms’ album You’re Dreaming.
Though they came from a musical family, they didn’t naturally inherit their deep understanding of early American music. By tracing their heroes’ footsteps back to the roots, they came into their style in a very genuine way. By absorbing these musical discoveries, a natural alchemy took place and what transpired is the tasteful rejuvenation and transformation of a retro sound by a modern duo. With press ranging from a Rolling Stone “Artist to Watch,” NPR Heavy Rotation, NPR All Things Considered, Folk Alley, Noisey, Garden & Gun, CMT, A Prairie Home Companion and much more, the brothers have brought a breath of fresh air and vitality to the roots music scene.

The Cactus Blossoms – a letter from Jack and Page:
When my brother and I started making music as The Cactus Blossoms there wasn’t a big plan. We cut our teeth performing some well-known and obscure country songs that were popular or unpopular pre-1960, partly out of curiosity and deep appreciation, but mostly because it was fun. Early on we were given a residency at the Turf Club in St. Paul, Minnesota. We got a band together and it became our weekly practice-in-public where we would pull out every song we could think of, no matter how well we knew it. It was our first chance to play all night and do whatever we wanted. Over the course of our year and a half at the Turf Club our repertoire had snowballed into an amalgam of original songs and a bunch of gut wrenching, tongue-in-cheek heartbreakers that were 30 years older than us. Not everyone could tell what was new and what was old, and it didn’t really matter. People just seemed to enjoy it. That’s when the wheel got going and gave the illusion of spinning backwards. We weren’t born in the wrong era. We just got into some music from a different era and found a way to make it our own.

North Beaches Art Walk @ Where Atlantic Blvd. meets the ocean
Jul 19 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
North Beaches Art Walk @ Where Atlantic Blvd. meets the ocean | Atlantic Beach | Florida | United States

North Beaches Artwalk is a free event held the third Thursday of each month from 5 to 9 pm. Featuring many local visual artists and live performers. Artwalk is held at the Atlantic Beach & Neptune Beach Town Centers.  Also at Adele Grage Cultural Center with a different featured artist every month.

With over 55 participating artists, Artwalk is a diverse art destination & shopping experience for the entire family. Local venues set the backdrop for this great monthly destination and community gathering.

The overall mission of Art Walk is to expose the community to the vast number of local artists right here at the Beaches and we thank all the local shops & restaurants for making it possible!  We welcome talent from all over Jacksonville to join North Beaches Art Walk.

 

The North Beaches Art Walk got its start in 2007 when Beaches art-industry professionals JoAnne Adams, Alice Gartland and Linda Stewart came together in hopes of recreating the popular art walk atmosphere of Downtown.

Through their nurturing and dedication, the event has grown considerably since its infancy. And on every third Thursday of the month, the streets of the Beaches Town Center erupt with creativity.

What was once a small pool of carefully selected artists has now become a bubbling ocean of art, a place where woodworkers comingle with jewelry designers and musicians play into the night. Welcoming to locals and out of towners alike, to say it’s a communal event would be putting it lightly; it’s an experience.

Beachside Buggies provides FREE rides to the residents and visitors of the beaches community.

It’s a perfect way to get around town on the evening of NBAW.

Slightly Stoopid have unveiled the initial dates for their 12th annual summer tour. The 2018 “Schools Out For Summer” tour will route the California natives to amphitheaters and pavilions across North America. Joining Slightly Stoopid are Stick Figure and Pepper.

Slightly Stoopid is the Ocean Beach, California based group led by co-founders and multi-instrumentalists Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty, along with drummer Ryan “Rymo” Moran; percussionist Oguer “OG” Ocon; saxophonist Daniel “Dela” Delacruz, keyboardist Paul Wolstencroft; trumpet and trombone player Andy Geib; plus special guest and “unofficial 8th member” Karl Denson (The Rolling Stones/Greyboy Allstars). Known for their fusion of folk, rock, reggae and blues with hip-hop, punk, funk and D.I.Y. work ethic, Slightly Stoopid has currently sold over 900,000 records on their own Stoopid Records label. Their most recent studio album Meanwhile… Back at the Lab reached #3 on the Billboard Top Alternative Albums chart and #37 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart.

“We’re a touring act, and we’ve been on the road pretty much non-stop over the last decade,” explains Doughty, offering that the band’s own local recording studio and rehearsal clubhouse “The Lab at Stoopid Studios” (within the warehouse district of Mission Valley just inland of Ocean Beach), is a key ingredient of what keeps the band’s sound fresh. In fact, the title and album cover reference the band’s collective escape from touring where they have been working on numerous creative and collaborative projects. “What’s nice about having our own environment to record in, and analyze the music, is it really lets us keep an organic feel. For Slightly Stoopid, I feel like it’s a step into the next level, as far as understanding the process of recording, understanding the process of songwriting. We took everything that we’ve learned over the years and really put it into this place and into our music,” states Doughty.

“For us, it was a big turning point as far as having complete creative control over everything we do. That’s something big for this band—we want to make the music for ourselves and for our fans. We don’t really make music for someone in an office that tells us something needs to be there. We’ve always had a very organic, do-it-yourself attitude. I think it’s paid off in dividends,” says Doughty. Nearly two decades into their artistry, Slightly Stoopid continues to progress into new musical territory, defining their signature sound while creating a contagious feel-good vibe that has its own lifestyle and subculture… and it’s been done entirely on their own terms.

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 FutureSailor 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 song craft 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, Miller absorbed valuable lessons from their musical tradition. When the family moved to Texas, Miller deepened his education in the blues, meeting T-Bone Walker and learning to sing and play listening to him and Jimmy Reed. Miller then moved to Chicago where he played with Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Buddy Guy and Paul Butterfield. Miller, who has just been voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after being nominated for the first time this year, keeps himself immersed in listening and playing all genres of blues and jazz and rock ‘n’ roll music – American music. Miller is also contributing his time to serving on the welcoming committee of the Department of Musical Instruments of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and as a board member of Jazz at Lincoln Center, where he curates and hosts shows at both institutions celebrating the bridge between blues and jazz music and early American Music.

Peter Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others. His fifth solo album, the electrifying Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.
