Live music!

Featuring Corey Smith and Sister Hazel

corey smith

Corey Smith was named one of country music's hottest new artists by Country Weekly and Music Row Magazine and was featured on the cover of Pollstar as a Hotstar Top Artist. Corey has the ability to relate to crowds like few other modern-day live acts - in one moment singing frankly of wild days spent partying, followed by showcasing his wisdom with songs that touch on much deeper issues of life.

Ken Block and Drew Copeland

Sister Hazel’s creative train just keeps rolling. Last year’s well-received “Release” reached the band’s highest ever spot (#37) on the Billboard Album Charts, topping even their platinum disc “Somewhere More Familiar,” and they are keeping the momentum going with “Heartland Highway” (Oct. 12, 2010, Rock Ridge Music), marking the band’s quickest album-to-album turnaround in their 15-plus-year career.

ABout Cousin Catfish

It all started at a backyard party in 1999. The group had grown weary of the massive crowds at local venues, and wanted to start something of their own. Year one saw a crowd of 200 reveling in the eve of the big game. Rob Charnley then coined the party Cousin Catfish’s Pigskin Jamboree.

The rest is history. From the first annual with 200 people, Cousin Catfish has grown to be Jacksonville’s best semi-private Florida/Georgia party. Music has been a key driving factor at the event with artists such as Chris McCarty, Kort McCumber, Jupiter Coyote, The Connells, Sister Hazel and Jack Ingram donning the stage.

Original hosts include Brant Williams, Courtland Eyrick, John Summerlin, Lane Lewis, Scotty Verlander, Nathan Smith, Preston Smith, Mark VanLandingham, Rob Charnley, Keith Catlin, Jason Richards, Billy Catlin and Brett Cannon, but the host committee has grown vastly throughout the years.
