More About The Jam Kings
The Jam Kings—keyboardist John Russo, drummer Joey Kirkland and bass player Johnnie Burrows—are a cover band specializing in rock, pop, country and piano bar standards. They have described their target audience as middle-aged people who appreciate music and like to dance. Russo and Kirkland started the band a few years ago, but they needed a guitar player. That’s when they approached Burrows. It took some convincing, but he finally agreed and The Jam Kings were born.
More about Backstage Pass
Backstage Pass grew out of the Concerts in the Park series begun in 1986, by Florida First Federal and late community leader, Roger Schadd. From 1986 to 2008, free outdoor concerts were held every summer featuring local bands. In order to keep the series going during the recession, Backstage Pass began welcoming guests through the Backstage Door of the Marina Civic Center in 2009, and the first band was “On Call”, led by the late Hulon Crayton. Tickets were $5 (and they still are) and the community embraced it from the first downbeat. We are so grateful to continue this wonderful tradition.
