Hurricane Michael pummeled the Florida Gulf Coast with its deadly winds and storm surge. From Panama City to Apalachicola northward, many continue to work overtime to clear piles of debris that were once homes and businesses. Residents of that section of the Florida Panhandle are struggling to deal with the storm’s aftermath, both emotionally and financially.
Port St. Joe is one of several Florida hamlets that felt the brunt of Hurricane Michael. An army of musicians from Mobile and Baldwin counties have pooled their time and talents for Port St. Joe Fest in an effort to show the Forgotten Coast it hasn’t been forgotten.
Thirty-one musicians from the Mobile Bay area are coming together in the name of goodwill. The crowd will enjoy such acts as Fat Man Squeeze and Phil & Foster, with Donna Hall Foster and Symone French bringing their vocal talents to the event. Port St. Joe Fest’s lineup includes an abundance of singer-songwriters such as Harrison McInnis, Christina Christian, Ryan Balthrop and Stephen Sylvester, just a handful of the artists performing.
In addition to live music, Port St. Joe Fest will feature a raffle and a costume contest. According to Callaghan’s co-owner John Thompson, Budweiser has also pledged to match any cash donations.
