Live Oak —

Memorial Day is summer’s first holiday, and The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) in Live Oak has a great weekend awaiting you and your family May 23 - 26.

Two of the best bands in North Florida - Band of Brothers and Justin Case - will take the stage in the Music Hall Friday and Saturday night. If you are arriving early, Ted “Teddy MacElvis” McMullen will hold court in the Music Hall Thursday night with karaoke and dancing.

Admission is $10 per carload at the gate for day or evening only guests during the holiday Friday - Sunday. No additional gate charge for overnight or longer guests. 

Enjoy biking, hiking, bird watching, golf carting, swimming in the park’s pool for overnight guests, the ice cream shop, game room, free hot dogs for kids on Saturday along with the annual golf cart parade. And don't forget to catch a glimpse of the millions of bats as they leave the world’s largest bat house at dusk each night.

The Store of the Village is open for all your needs during the weekend and crafts vendors will be open. “Dr.” Don Miller will broadcast his Saturday afternoon bluegrass show live from the SOSMP radio studio over The Big 98 (98.1 FM) Saturday, May 24, from 5 - 8 p.m. in the Crafts Village. There will be music and fun all weekend! If you prefer to come for the day only, admission will be $10 per day per carload during the holiday weekend.

Band of Brothers of Mayo just played its first The Suwannee River Jam on the same stage where Montgomery Gentry had played. With its many fans who enjoy this great band’s listening and dancing music with country, Southern rock, Elvis, maybe a little Conway Twitty or just be prepared for anything, the Band of Brothers will take the stage Friday night, May 23. Don’t forget those dancing shoes.

Justin Case, another Suwannee River Jam artist, will bring all types of Southern Fried country, Southern rock and just plain good rockin’ music for a great evening.
