Port St. Joe celebrates music through the years with festival

Local singer-songwriter Charlie Black will also be on hand to perform some of his greatest hits. Black is a Grammy-nominated scribe who has written No. 1 songs for Reba McEntire, George Strait and Alan Jackson.

He will be accompanied by his songwriting/singer wife, Dana.

Local group The Boyer Band, along with hard rockers Again We Rise and Thirty Three will round out the show and complete the music through the years auditory experience.

In October of 2012, Mayor Mel Magidson appointed a centennial committee that included representatives from the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce, Gulf County Tourist Development Council, St. Joseph Bay Historical Society and members of the business and private sector to begin planning the celebration 100 years in the making.

Dana Boyer of Boyer Signs and head of Port St. Joe fundraising committee, worked hard with seven other members to put the fundraising concert together.

“It’s going to be a wonderful day,” she said, especially excited to have The Villagers. “People remember them.”

She took a moment to give thanks to those who donated goods for the event. Sound and lighting equipment for the music festival was donated by St. Joe Music, Centennial Bank provided tents and George Duren provided hamburgers, hot dogs, barbeque and other concessions that will be sold on-site.
