Featured Artist – Captn Jac

Welcome to the Tiki Bar“A boy growin’ up in the heartland, surrounded by acres of grain.”  So goes the lyric from one of the songs on Captn Jac’s new album.  As the grandson of a Midwest farmer and son of a small town construction worker, he spent his youth learning how to plant crops and build homes.  By the time he’d turned 18, he decided on a different chosen career.  Music was to be the driving force in his life.  Since those early days, he has performed as a musician and entertainer in many styles of music.  He has played for crowds large and small all over the United States.  He attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music and performed on master recording sessions in New York, Memphis, and Nashville, TN.  The years spent in school and on the road finally lead him to discover his own voice as a songwriter.  In 2006 during a visit to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, he was inspired to begin writing the songs that would eventually become the ‘Livin On The Hard’ album.  Released in 2010 by Pilothouse Music, it has been well received in concert and is widely available on most all the Internet music outlets. These days, the Captn and his “Crew” are performing in Florida playing music from the album as well as the “Gulf and Western”, “Trop Rock” and “Conch Country” sounds of other artists.  When the Captn is not performing, he loves sailing, diving, and spending time in the Florida Keys.

Deep In Our Hearts – from Carol Ewald

Hey Beachbums…..As most of you know, we lost our precious DJ Jeff this week.  The Beachfront is cloudy and we are all hurting from his departure.  But we are a family and will hold each other up and the music will help us escape and the sun will shine again.
20130302_223330
Included with this email is a free download of St. Somewhere’s “Deep In My Heart”This was a special song for him (us) and will be for all of us because he IS deep in our hearts.Just click on the link above.

On Wednesday, Oct. 30th - from 12-5 (EST) there will be a “Celebration of Life” at the Smokin’ Tuna for Jeff. If you can not be there physically, you can tune into the Tuna Cam and join the celebration. There will be tributes to him at so many of the events during the week. Someone even said on a post that if Jimmy shows up this year…he will be upstaged by Jeff, LOL..

His passion was Beachfront Radio and the music, but also the Phins To the West DJ Jeff Fund.  This Fund helped relieve so much stress and when you’re dealing with a terminal illness…you need every stress reliever you can find.  But his wishes were that it goes onto help others.  That was Jeff…always thinking of others. So we hope you will donate in his honor on the Taking Care of our Own website..The Phins to the West  event has always been an amazing “Party with a Purpose” just as so many others are and they were the full backers of the Fund.  We hope you go out and support these events all over the country that Party With A Purpose. .

The Beachfront will NEVER be the same without him but the music has to go on. Your outpouring of support and love has not gone unnoticed and his loved ones and family. It has been amazing and so comforting.

As we head into the biggest phlocking, MOTM in Key West, he would want us to celebrate the music there as he was “Keeper Of The Flame”.  For many of us, it will not be the same without him but he lives through every song that is sung and will be missed by so many.

KEEP ON TROCKIN’
