Blue Ribbon Healers
In 4 years of playing full time and traveling coast to coast, The Blue Ribbon Healers have concocted a sonic gumbo of tasty treats for the ears and feet, a sound you can drink to, dance to, and smoke to, a feeling that warms the heart and brings people together in lively celebration.
Their driving string band sound, which draws heavily from the old-time jazz of New Orleans, proves a lively vehicle for original material, and a rich base for the gumbo of choice ethnic and folk flavors that come together in one delicious danceable sound.
The music is fresh, homegrown, and high quality, which makes the band popular with craft breweries, farmer’s markets, festivals and venues whose vitality comes from the support of the community.
Their spirit is hearty, and so is their belief in working (and playing!) hard -- after a packed spring and summer’s worth of shows at the beach, their third annual cross country tour included 15 shows in California, 10 in Colorado and a run up the Mississippi River, all in just under 2 months.
For the fall, winter, and spring, the BRH are based back home in Panama City Beach, FL and actively venturing around the southeast, bringing the sound many will recognize from their summer vacations down on the Gulf.

Radar's Clowns of Sedation
"So many people who claim to write blues music these days are writing quaint odes to yesteryear that couldn’t ruffle a feather with the help of a strong breeze. So it’s refreshing to hear Pete Pawsey come along with his new band line up, Radar’s Clown’s of Sedation, and a set of songs that are rude, socially unacceptable, and even a little seditious. YES. This is the blues kids used to sneak away from their parents to hear. This is the blues that used to get banned from the radio. This is is the blues said the things that god folk didn’t have the guts to hear."
