SPIRIT OF THE SUWANNEE MUSIC PARK, LIVE OAK, FLA – Get the weekend started off Friday night with a Salute to 9/11 by North Florida band William Scott and Silverado and then Saturday night, get ready for traditional country with Central Florida’s Boggy Creek Band!
William Scott and Silverado is a four piece ensemble performing a wide variety of popular tunes including country, rock and roll, blues and originals. The band prides itself on quality entertainment mixed with a drive to satisfy the eyes and ears of the customer. Lead vocalist William Scott believes Silverado has the perfect group of musicians with Scott and lead guitarist/vocalist Rick Randlett, bassist Ricky Mullins and drummer Phil Marston. Join them Friday night in the Music Hall for a salute to 9/11 to honor those who lost their lives in the worst terrorist attack on America Sept. 11, 2001. The event will also honor fire-rescue, law enforcement officers and the military, all who served valiantly during this difficult time. A 20 percent discount will be given to these honored guests at the door with an official badge for ID. Bring your American flags, wear patriotic colors and celebrate the lives of these true American heroes!
Saturday night it’s the Boggy Creek Band of Central Florida that is sure to please. Boggy Creek Band is on a benefit tour to help raise funds for Camp Boggy Creek, a camp which enriches the lives of children with chronic or life threatening illnesses by giving them a summer camp experience year around. The band has combined its CD release tour, Back Into The Swamp CD Release & Benefit Tour, with this benefit. A percentage of the proceeds from each of about 250 shows will be donated to Camp Boggy Creek.
Unique, energetic, and enthused are just a few of the words entertainment writers have used to describe the band. A little old west, some riding and roping, a little bit of Southern hospitality and country living and you have the makings of natural country music entertainers Craig Wise, Sherry Rose and Stacey Lee, along with the other talented band members. Together, they have a taste for tradition, the sounds of today’s modern country music with traditional country mixed in with a touch of rock and blues. Don’t forget those dancing shoes!
