MAC ARNOLD &
PLATE FULL O' BLUES 
w/
Sheba The Mississippi Queen
& The Bluesmen
Opening the Show !

Mac Arnold, who has performed and recorded with Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, and worked with other huge musical giants such as James Brown and Quincy Jones, is back in Gainesville with his band Plate Full O’ Blues. Arnold, a true gentleman of the blues, toured and recorded live albums with Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker in the 1960s, and has played with many other legendary Blues artists. His high school band was often joined by future soul music legend James Brown on piano. 

Mac Arnold was nominated for best Traditional Blues Male Artist at the 2012 Blues Music Awards. Heading one of the finest live Blues bands today, they headlined the Brick City Blues Festival to rave reviews. Jazz Now said Arnold has “one of the most original voices in blues” and All Music Guide called him “one remaining virtual blues goldmine”. Mac was inducted into the Alabama Blues Hall of Fame in 2017.

Sheba the Mississippi Queen & the Bluesman were International Blues Challenge semifinalists. Sheba’s influences are Billy Holiday, Etta James, Tina Turner, Aretha, and Big Mama Thornton, and she has performed at Springing the Blues, the Coral Gables Blues Festival, and the Long Island Blues Festival. The band includes top musicians steeped in the Blues that have played alongside Buddy Guy and Bo Diddley, among other greats.

Peace of Woodstock
*Subject to change, 'cause change is good!

One of the coolest summer festivals to come along, Spirit of 
Woodstock, is a music event which benefits the beautiful and
rustic Sertoma Youth Ranch and will be held Friday thru Sunday, 
August 16-18, 2019 at the ranch located at 85 Myers Road, 
Brooksville, FL 34602. This is an incredible three day and 
three night camping optional festival located just off 
I-75 at Exit 293.

Three days of incredible music, children's activities, contests, 
vendors and so much more. Camping is optional but fun and 
single and weekend passes are available.

Get your hippie groove on and enjoy peace, love and music 
each day. Allow nature to soothe your soul with a positive, 
uplifting experience with like-minded music fans. Gather 
your tribe together and make your plans now to attend!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic music 
festival, Woodstock, held on a dairy farm in the Catskill 
Mountains, northwest of New York City, between August 15–18, 
1969, which attracted an audience of more than 400,000. 
Billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music", 
it was held at Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm near 
White Lake in Bethel, New York,43 miles southwest of Woodstock.

Over the sometimes rainy weekend, 32 acts performed outdoors. 
It is widely regarded as a pivotal moment in popular music history, 
as well as the definitive nexus for the larger counterculture 
generation. Rolling Stone listed it as one of the 50 Moments 
That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.

That brings us to today where we will celebrate the music
festival that changed a generation.

Set in the rolling hills of Brooksville, FL on the Hernando/Paso 
county lines, Spirit of Woodstock is a camping optional experience 
you don’t want to miss. With over 80 acres of oak trees, creek and 
lake, the rustic and gorgeous Sertoma Youth Ranch has over 200
 water/electric sites with 30 amp service, permanent bathhouse 
with restrooms, showers and dump station. Plenty of space to 
spread out under the stars while you are tent camping in our
 primitive areas, but easily accessible to the bathhouse. The 
park is pet friendly, so you don’t have to leave your dogs at home! 
The covered stage and seating area lends itself to an intimate 
gathering of like-minded music lovers with large dance area. 
There will be a fantastic array of food and merchandise 
vendors on site all weekend.

Remember, Spirit of Woodstock is not just a camping event –
single day tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as
weekend passes are on sale, so grab them now! Camping is 
not required to attend and parking is free. If you do want to 
camp at the festival, and don’t own an RV or camper, we can
 help you get hooked up with a rental. We recommend booking 
one now if you want to come for the whole weekend. The 
water and electric sites are limited. We have unlimited tent 
camping areas and space for self-contained units 
with quiet generators.

Our two host hotels, Hampton Inn and Quality Inn, are located 
just up at the next exit from the festival if that is more your style!
