Destin… A scenic stage for the music lover
Destin, FL is BOOMING with music
“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” ¬†-Albert Einstein
So the smartest man that ever lived must have had a fond love for music. Music is what clears away sorrow, cures boredom, and gives that “spark” that we all look for many times. ¬†There’s not many that don’t LOVE music; and whether you are visiting Destin, or you live here… Destin is bringing it, this year more than ever! Destin will be the heart and soul of the Emerald Coast and people will want to come from all over to see,¬†or hear,¬†what Destin will be offering.
There will be more to come on this…
First Note music is 1st rate
Recently you may have seen that First Note Entertainment has partnered with Seascape Golf and Beach Resort to bring you the highest quality live music. Their niche is to showcase successful usually charted artists, all with their own recording labels, either as a part of a successful well known band/group, or as individual recording artists. These concerts for the upcoming more recent months will be outdoor concerts on the driving range, with an indoor rain delay option on site, just in case. There will be beverages and food for purchase and seating. You may bring an extra lawn chair if you have one that is a comfortable favorite.
Another goal for First Note is to cover a variety of different genres in one single concert. So any concert you attend will be a pleasant mix from country, pop, blues, soul, you name it, it just depends who’s there that concert.
iLoveDestin.com had the pleasure of being there. It is truly a unique experience that is hard to “get” until you go there, see it yourself and “get it”. The passion of these artists have to be experienced 1st hand and then you will fall in love with the inspiring concept. Next concert is Easter weekend.
So you think you can BOOGIE?
Williams Backyard Boogie¬†is an outdoor informal BYOB and chair setting where the Forrest Williams Band has performed themselves or presented an average of 2 performances a month since it’s construction. Now in it’s 2nd year, they are holding a 2nd year anniversary concert this Friday, March 28th at their venue off hwy 98 turning a little north on Chat Holley Road, west of hwy 331.
Forrest tells Beachcomber, “The idea came about because I realized that most music venues here are add-ons to bars or restaurants,” says Forrest. “In order for any artist to grow, they need a place to be heard so they can tell their stories. We wanted to provide that with the Backyard. The community support has been unbelievable. We, and all the artists, are so appreciative.”¬†¬†
Forrest Williams is married to Pherrel Williams who is also a musical entertainer. She says Forrest is an outdoorsy kind of guy so this is a natural fit for him. When he’s not playing guitar and singing, he’s fishing, building things, or they take a run. Forrest states: “I picked up the guitar when I was 14 years old and have been playing ever since. I grew up listening to Rock, Blues, Country, and Folk music from the 60’s up to present day.”
The Williams Backyard Boogie venue is the perfect “Destin getaway” and will surely be a no nonsense, laidback, “fun as all get out” type of concert!
