Kids Rock the Nation, November 19th

 

Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre (FOSAA) will sponsor an exciting all-day musical event at the Amphitheatre on Saturday, November 19th from 12:30 PM to 8:30 PM. The event will feature some of the area's hottest bands and soloists and spotlight the talent of Kids Rock the Nation Foundation award recipients. Tickets are $15 for adults, and $10 for students eighteen and under. Children under five will be admitted for free. Tickets are available through TicketMaster and at the Amphitheatre Box Office beginning October 1st. Tickets will also be available at the door. Half of the proceeds will be donated to St. Johns County schools to provide opportunities for students to see and experience live performances. The other half will be used to fund grants to non-profit community agencies and schools who submit FOSAA grant applications.

The Kids Rock the Nation Foundation, led by musician Anthony Wild of Palm Coast, promotes self-esteem through musical performance by recognizing and rewarding potential musical talent in kids nine to sixteen years old. Through an application process, recipients are chosen who demonstrate the desire to learn and the motivation to succeed.  Winners receive a guitar and ongoing mentoring from professional musicians. More information and application forms will be available at the Kids Rock the Nation booth. Other information and merchandise booths will be open during the event as well as food concessions. Terrific door prizes will be awarded all day for children and adults. As a special treat, a guitar signed by Selena Gomez, will be auctioned off by written bid.

The following performers will be featured on the concourse and main stage: Penguin Teeth Band, Will Pearsall,  Rob Peck, Elizabeth Roth, Anthony Wild and the Suspects, J.W. Gilmore and the Blues Authority, Smokin Mirrors, Big Lonesome with Wayne Johnson, Reuben Morgan and the Mighty Groove Machine, and the Impediments Band, and a special final jam. Four recipients of  Kids Rock the Nation awards will be spotlighted. Also performing will be two St. Johns County school bands, The Eagle Band from South Woods Elementary and Ponte Vedra High's Man of Color.
