6 w July 2011 w Mississippi Coast Observer The 2nd Annual SAVE OUR SOUND Gulfport, MS--It is time to gear up and prepare for another great day of celebration at the Chimneys on July 4th! The First annual "Save our Sound" at Chimneys in Gulfport showed the Mississippi Gulf coast that even in the shadow of a great challenge, we discovered our strength as a coast lied not in our resources, but the people. With over 600 attendees at last years first annual, the people of the MS gulf coast showed they supported and embraced a new way to celebrate the life this special area offers. The anticipation for the next year has been heard loud and clear all year long. This year is shaping up to be bigger and better, becoming a must see attraction in only its second installment. For 2011, we have decided to raise the bar and bring a unique, entertaining experience that only the producers of Blue Earth can provide. Gates open at 1p and the entertainment for this year includes: Cornell Williams (as seen in the hit TV show, Treme) and "Pocket Tyme" 8 - 9:30p John "Papa" Gros - 6:10 - 7:40p Dirty Play - 5- 5:50p Rosco Bandana - 4- 4:50p Brooks Hubbert - 3- 3:50p Cary Hudson - 2-2:50p China Cat Orchestra (Grateful Dead Tribute) - After Party at the Chimneys The view Chimneys' lawn proved to be the perfect for the annual Gulfport Firework show. The music seemed to only heighten the experience of an already invigorating show. This will once again be the case for the 2011 edition. As always, Save our Sound and Blue Earth Productions supports a worthy cause which helps keep our Gulf clean and beautiful. This year, proceeds from the event will be donated to the Deer Island Restoration Project. There are plenty of activates for all ages and 12 and under get in for free! Tickets are $10 and available for presale at Chimneys and Champion Chrysler Dodge Jeep on Pass Road in Gulfport. $100 VIP tables also available. Email Johnnyhozey@me.com for more information. See you at Save our Sound 2011 and celebrate keeping our music and gulf alive and healthy! Find us on facebook at facebook.com/saveoursoundms.
