Andalusia July Jamz

on the lawn at Springdale
Summer Concert Series Coming to Andalusia!

Part of our mission at the Andalusia Area Chamber of Commerce is to initiate programs and services that enhance the quality of life for residents of Andalusia and Covington County. July is a great time of year to enjoy a more relaxed schedule and spend quality time outdoors. This year, the Chamber has partnered with the City of Andalusia to put together a free, family-friendly summer concert series on the lawn at Springdale on Thursday nights starting July 9th.

Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy live music performed by talented musicians, all with local ties. There will be fun for all ages as we will have Hawaiian shave ice provided by Kona Ice, a foam play area, a photo booth, fireworks, and of course great music.

Our local musicians like Scott Rogers from PowerSouth, Tripp Bass from the Bass Agency, and Evan Brooks, Bob Brooks’ son are all excited to take stage and have a good time with their friends and neighbors. Up and coming talent like Kat Dean and Jamal Curry will also be a part of the show as opening acts for our “headliners”.

You can check out the Chamber’s social media pages for updates on the event or feel free to call the office if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing everyone at July Jamz!

Performers will include Forrest Williams Band, The Rips and Geoff McBride. Fabulous raffle and silent auction items donated by local businesses will benefit Alaqua Animal Refuge, the Lighthouse Family Retreat, and the Muscogee Nation of Florida.

Admission is one can of non-perishable food to be dropped off at the donation box set up at the event entrance. This will be an outdoor event, so plan ahead to bring a blanket or chairs for seating. Coolers and picnics are welcomed. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase. Donations will be gladly accepted at the event and in advance to benefit all of the charities. Easy on 30A invites everyone to attend, enjoy the music and support these local charities.

“We are beyond thrilled to be hosting our 4th Annual Easy On 30A Benefit Concert in WaterColor. What started out as a small event for friends and family has turned into an amazing community affair with over 1000 attendees and thousands of dollars raised for our charities. We are not at all surprised that 30A has once again rallied together to support their very own, and we are humbled and grateful to all of you making this happen again this year with us.” - Beth and Randy Carroll

Easy on 30A was founded four years ago by locals Beth & Randy Carroll, with an idea of bringing musicians together to highlight the great talent along 30A and to bring community awareness to charities in the area. This is the fourth year that the Easy On 30A Benefit Concerts have supported Alaqua Animal Refuge. Alaqua Animal Refuge is a no-kill shelter, located in Northwest FL, that actively rescues, rehabilitates and adopts a wide variety of animals in need and to-date has adopted out over 11,000 animals since 2007.

Easy On 30A is presented by the WaterColor Homeowners Association, who graciously allows the use of Marina Park in WaterColor to bring this FREE concert to WaterColor owners, area residents and visitors to the 30A community. Easy On 30A works together with the WaterColor Community and WaterColor Resort to bring this fun charity event to fruition during one of the busiest weeks of the summer.
