Destination Panama City is pleased to announce “Downtown After Dark,” an outdoor, family-friendly event featuring popular soul-rock musician JJ Grey and his band, Mofro, at 5:00 p.m. CST on Saturday, October 16 at the Destination Panama City Visitor’s Center on the #LovePC lawn. Local favorite Tyler James Arnold and The Voodoo Jelly will be the opening act. VIP tickets are available beginning today. Free General Admission tickets will also be available to the public on the same ticket portal. Tickets are limited and required for entry; so be sure to get them as soon as possible. For link to tickets, visit the Downtown After Dark for more info.
A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Grey delivers his “swamp rock” music with compassion and a relentless honesty. Drawing on such diverse musical influences as Jerry Reed, Otis Redding and Run-D.M.C., Grey merges different genres while keeping true to his North Florida roots.
“We are thrilled to finally welcome JJ Grey & Mofro to beautiful Panama City,” said Jennifer Vigil, president and CEO of Destination Panama City. “Our vibrant Historic Downtown neighborhood is the perfect setting for the concert – and we encourage concertgoers to walk around and check out public artwork along the area’s new Panama City Mural Trail, enjoy a meal at one of our many independent restaurants, or support our local retailers.”
Proceeds from concert ticket sales will benefit a current ecological project that will bring either a deployment of artificial snorkeling reefs or a living shoreline installation, which will be located in St. Andrew Bay just off the shoreline behind the new Destination Panama City welcome center. The reefs will be accessible for locals and visitors alike to enjoy – no special equipment required. The project is expected to be completed by July 2022.
