June 26, 2014 by SoWal Staff

The Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation (MKAF) has extended the 19th Annual Concerts in the Village through July 17. The Thursday night concert series starts at 7 p.m. and bands perform live from the Dugas Pavilion at the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village in Destin.

On June 26, Concerts in the Village will feature Twelve Against Nature—Nashville’s Steely Dan Experience. The band features vocals, guitar, bass, drums and a horn section complete with trumpet, trombone and sax players to authentically replicate Steely Dan’s unique sound and complex harmonies. Performing Steely Dan’s biggest hits, including FM (No Static at All) and Rikki Don’t Lose That Number as well as many others, Twelve Against Nature will celebrate Steely Dan and their place in music history. 

The Concerts in the Village series will continue into July with rescheduled performances by Déjà Vu on July 10 and Ike Bartley on July 17. Families will enjoy the relaxed outdoor setting and children can play on the Tringas Playground. The Picnic Supper Club, a popular concert tradition, is a benefit to sponsors and also available for MKAF members to purchase a season table to host friends, family or clients in a cultural atmosphere. Local restaurants will continue to alternate weekly serving fresh, affordable cuisine prepared on-site, and offer kid’s menus. Concert fans are welcome to bring their own picnic and wine or beverage of choice. Water, soft drinks and beer and wine by the bottle are available to purchase onsite with proceeds benefiting the MKAF's cultural and education mission.
Admission is $10 per person and children under 12 and MKAF members are free. For more information, visit or call 850-650-2226. 

The Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation was founded on the cultural, educational and spiritual beliefs of the late Destin Matriarch, Mattie Kelly.  The Foundation’s mission is to be the champion of cultural arts and education in Northwest Florida.
