“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 had Duck Phat, Mose Wilson and the Delta Twang, and The Wide Open headlining the event. The 2019 event drew the biggest crowd yet with Dread Clampitt, Huck And Lilly + Chris Alvarado Music. The event was canceled the last two years due to the pandemic but 2022 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.”

“Watersound is such a young and wonderful community, and it’s fun thinking that Locals Last Stand is one of the neighborhood’s pioneering annual event,” said Ragsdale. “As the community grows, so will this new tradition.”
Update: Even though the 2022 30A Locals Last Stand got rained out, as you can see, we still had some pre-party fun:
