The Flora-Bama, Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, will salute the Gulf Coast's finest musicians at the 2nd Annual "Shindig on the Sand", June 6-8th. Last of the "Great American Roadhouses", the Flora-Bama partnered, last year and this year, with American Family Care to provide the Gulf musicians access to affordable healthcare and other social services.
This year, the famous 5-star Honky-Tonk will reach out to other cultural icons and artists for a memorable "Shindig" to further enhance meaningful programs to insure the survival and well being of those tradition bearers and musicians along the Gulf.
Flora-Bama's Gulf Coast Musicians' Assistance Fund (GCMAF) is intended to keep Gulf Coast music alive by sustaining its musicians in mind, body and spirit. Even a simple low cost physical can result in early detection of problems. The "Shindig on the Sand" celebration, which showcases the musical culture and heritage along the Gulf, does just that! It provides a way for GCMAF to partner with other health providers and help cut the high costs of urgent medical care for its musicians.
