THE BARNACLE UNDER MOONLIGHT CONCERT: IKO-IKO
The Barnacle Historic State Park
Date: October 12, Gate opens at 5:30 p.m. Music from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
The Barnacle Under Moonlight and the Iko Underground present Three Hours of Love, Peace and Music featuring Iko-Iko. Graham Wood Drout has chosen The Barnacle as the perfect venue for a genuine 1960s flower child 'Love In,' and has invited his friends at Florida State Massage Therapy Association, Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency, Glover Arts and more to participate.
Iko-Iko’s Urban Swamp Music is a swirling mix of Blues, Mardi Gras, Gulf Coast Americana, jazz, jam band sensibilities, and Rock and Roll. The group originated in South Florida in the 1980s and has shared the stage with nearly every working Blues artist in the United States from then until now. From Albert Collins, Bo Diddley and John Lee Hooker to Sun Ra, David Bromberg and Jimmy Buffet, the list goes on and on. The group has earned its status as a South Florida music legend and will proudly represent the South Florida Blues Association at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee in January 2015.
The gate opens at 5:30 p.m. and Iko-Iko will play from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Admission is $10 for future members of The Barnacle Society, $8 for members, $5 for children ages 6-9, and free for children 5 or under. Picnics, blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. No pets, please.
