Williams Backyard Boogie Benefit Concert
Local musicians will bring their music and hearts together on stage at Williams Backyard Boogie on Friday, August 28 in memory of local musician Marcus Buckner. The concert event will also feature live and silent auctions to include a painting "30-A Angel Band" by local musician and folk artist Franko "Washboard" Jackson depicting local musicians who have passed away, including Marcus.
Tickets are $20 donation at the door with all proceeds going to benefit the Buckner family. The show starts at 5:00 p.m. in the backyard, where the locals love to go for a great night of music.
Friday night's music lineup will include Forrest Williams Band as well as many members of SoWal's local music scene including Franko Washboard Jackson, Duke Bardwell, and Balder Saunders. We have a feeling we'll see quite a few other familiar faces and talents on stage. Stay tuned for more information regarding the final lineup.
Bring your own chair and bring your own bottle of whatever. Food will be available for purchase. All proceeds go to help the Buckner family of South Walton, FL.
