The next Blues at the Beach show will be held on Friday, May 11, at Pascagoula Beach Park from 6 to 8 p.m. with local band Slick Radio performing. The show is free and open to the public.
This is the seventh year for Blues at the Beach programming and attendance has steadily increased each year. The monthly events held annually during the summer months are planned by Emerge Pascagoula as a way to help the local community kick off the weekend.
“It’s a free music event to bring locals of all ages out into the community as well as to showcase some of Pascagoula’s great outdoor venues,” said Landon McCarty, Emerge Pascagoula co-chair. “It’s a great transition on Fridays between work and a night on the town.”
Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair and can bring food, beverages, and spirits to the show. The events are family friendly.
This year’s summer schedule kicked off in April with the Truitt Williams Band. June’s show will feature Ric McNaughton from Mobile on June 8. On July 13, Black Water Brass will be playing, and Deuces Wild will play on Aug. 10.
Emerge was formed under the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce’s Pascagoula Area Council. Emerge exists to recruit, develop, connect, retain, and empower emerging leaders to improve the quality of life in Pascagoula by advancing the group’s interests into real changes that will make the city a better place to live, work, and play.
