The Green Turtle is a staple in Amelia Island entertainment, and the popular music venue is gearing up for a pre-Shrimp Festival celebration beginning Saturday, April 27. In anticipation of the more than 100,000 people expected to head to Shrimp Fest, The Green Turtle kicks off the weekend before the festival with their first ever Turtle Jam Mini Fest. Melody Trucks and her band will headline this event. Trucks is part of the Trucks family music dynasty.
More than 100,000 guests are expected to attend the 2019 Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival, based on attendance in previous years. Firefall and Poco will headline the music, with bands like The Crazy Daysies and The Swingin’ Medallions taking the stage on Sunday. The music is only part of a three day mix of activities, parades, and marketplace wares.
Maybe it’s the Ides of March. Or maybe it’s the water. Of late, the crazy has really hit home with the Crazy Daysies. It’s a given that running a music business is a challenge that runs on adrenalin. We have that in droves right about now.
