“The original idea behind Locals Last Stand was simply to throw a free, no-pressure party for locals to enjoy,” said The 30A Company‘s Mike Ragsdale.

“It’s just fun no-frills afternoon to hang out with family and friends before the madness of Memorial Day weekend.”

The inaugural Locals Last Stand was held in 2013 and featured Dread Clampitt, The Forrest Williams Band and Cadillac Willy. In 2014, the party featured music by The Scott Rockwood Trio, Boukou Groove and The Wildlife Specials. 2015 featured Geoff McBride, The Owsley Brothers and Zack Rosicka, while 2016 event hosted Shatzi + The String Boffin, The Rips, and Hubba Hubba taking the stage. The 2017 party drew the biggest crowd yet for Duck Phat, Mose Wilson and the Delta Twang, and The Wide Open. 2018 saw bad weather cancel the event, but 2019 is sure to be another memorable party!

“We’ve celebrated so many of our local musicians with this event,” said Ragsdale. “There have been some really magical moments, and this year will be no different.”
