We are excited to announce a new member of the BeachFront Radio Music Hut, Bob Durand. Bob is a long-time drummer/singer/songwriter who picked up the guitar in the early 2000’s because it was just too hard to write music on drums. A native of New Orleans and part-time resident of Gulf Shores, Alabama, he has devoted more time to solo performance and songwriting in the last several years, including performances at Pardi Gras in 2015 and 2016 and at Pirates and Poets Songwriter Showcase in 2015. He released his first CD, Just Another Day, in January 2016. Please welcome Bob to our Music Hut family and support his music by downloading his brand new First CD. I know you will enjoy his songs.

A Trop Rock musician "Key West Chris" Rehm has just published a book. How unique is that! The book Key West Chris wrote is one that probably anyone who has spent time at a bar can relate to, it's called:

"Bar Stories: A Semi-fictional Adventure Tour As Witnessed From A Bar Stool".


I think the title kind of sums it up. There are 23 chapters all telling a different story. Some funny, some serious, some semi-true, some composites of several stories. But one thing is common. They are all a lot of fun. You can download the book from Amazon and it downloads to your Kindle for Free or you can buy it as a download file. Just go to Amazon and type in Bar Stories, it's the first one that pops up.

Go to the Amazon link HERE to download the book. You can also go the BeachFront Tropical Mall under Tropical Reading for more info and the Amazon like there too. Tropical Reading HERE

Official BeachFront Radio event announcements - - -

Here are some Events that are coming up soon and more on the Horizon too.




ONE PARTICULAR Phlocking was a huge success. The music
was fabulous, the party Ballroom just the perfect setting and
there were lots of great raffle baskets, auction items and
even the food was top notch. Could not have asked for a better
event.

I hope everyone makes plans to come out next year. It will be
in a different location but the planning staff will be from the
same group of Parrothead clubs.

Thanks to all the clubs involved - everyone did a great job.

8th Annual MEET ME IN THE KEYS
June 9-12, 2016 in Key West

Meet Me In The Keys is an annual get-together of the Castaways "Friends Clubs" of Howard Livingston & the MM24 Band. Join us for music, fun activities and fundraising to benefit "KOA" Care Camps.

Pre-Party Performers:  Loren Davidson, Bill Cockrell, John Friday, Howard Livingston, The JPs (Jimi Pappas and John Patti)
Event Performers Include: Dennis McCaughy, Jim Morris and the Big Bamboo Band, Captain Josh, Steve Tolliver & The Trop Rock Junkies, Paul Cotton / Poco, Peter Mayer, Howard Livingston and MM24

To be a sponsor or to donate a product or service to the raffle or silent auction, please email: Tammy.Hollander@SouthernMostCoconutCastaways.com

Get Registered HERE.


The Castaways are the OFFICIAL fan/friend clubs of Howard Livingston and the Mile Marker 24 Band! We invite you to "Become another Castaway," as Howard sings, by joining one of our clubs and attending the next Meet Me in the Keys (MMITK) event. There are currently three clubs: the Coconut Castaways (based in Des Moines, IA), the Southernmost Coconut Castaways (based in the Florida Keys) and the Coconut Castaways of Southwest Florida (based in the Port Charlotte, FL). Links to all of the clubs can be found by clicking on their logos below.
      We began our annual gatherings in 2008. After two cruises, it was decided to bring everyone to the place Howard and his wife Cyndy love the most, the Florida Keys. Meet Me in the Keys was born in 2010 and is now held in Key West every year. The event has grown tremendously and has turned into a 4+ day Trop Rock and fundraising event! We were honored to be nominated for the 2015 Event of the Year in the Trop Rock Music Association awards! Along with great Trop Rock entertainment and daily activities, we have many ways to raise money for
KOA Care Camps. This includes a "Hangover Classic Walk," raffles, auctions, and other fun and creative fundraisers. In June 2015, MMITK raised $53,000 for KOA Care Camps...what an amazing weekend!

Here's what Howard Livingston had to say about the Castaways organization..."I am proud to be associated with these great folks and refer to them as a 'Friend Club' as opposed to a fan club. They donate countless hours for all kinds of charitable causes; they are just incredible. Their mission is ‘Serving Community Roles with Caribbean Souls’.”

I want to give you a few brief updates on registration and the hotel situation as I am still getting email on these topics.

Registration is going VERY WELL this year. In fact it is moving at a rate not seen since the 20th annual when we sold out the event. Remember that we close registration at 3,500 or on September 15th whichever comes first. Don’t plan to wait too late in the year to book your reservation and get left out. Also remember we have a great contest prize and the deadline is only a month or so away!

The BeachFront Radio group cruise on the Norwegian Escape unfortunately had to be cancelled.

First of all the decision to cancel the Jim Morris Big Bamboo Band and the Island Castaways Band
was due to the fact that our numbers on the cruise were too low. We were hopeful that we might
be able to get more people signing up this spring. But after meeting with the cruise company they
pointed out the fact that we still did not have a sufficient number of people signed up at this time
to be able to continue the group

So our decision, while not an easy one and very painful was one that had to be made.
We appreciate all of those that signed up for the cruise and the few that are still inquiring about
the cruise but unfortunately we will have to wait until another time to do this cruise.

Also the stop in Belize was changed due to the fact that the construction on Harvest Caye would not
be complete enough to accommodate the public and was moved to Belize City. Maybe next time
the island will be ready for the public.

Anyone who has paid the entertainment fee can contact me directly for a refund, andy@beachfrontradio.com

For all other refunds please contact Laurie Raver at 727/812-1089 or Vicki Koch at 800/834-5183, ext 301 or 301/697-3214.

Thanks to all who signed up and wanted to go on this cruise with us, It really meant a lot that you wanted
to share your vacation with us. Have a great summer, Andy.

The Detentions.  A mix of Country, Americana and Folk that they like to call "Rockamole". And they are now in the Music Hut. There are two of their CDs in the Music Hut, "The Detentions" and "Rockamole". There are some really great Trop Rock songs in there too and we have been playing them for a couple of months now on the air. And some songs I've heard also play on Sirius/XM Margaritaville too. And their other songs are pretty darn good as well. Check 'em out and download their music HERE from the Music Hut.
