JIMMIE VAUGHAN and The Tilt-a-Whirl Band featuring Lou Ann Barton  – October 8, 2011

 According to the Pleasure Island website ” Join Us in Kure Beach for Music, Food, Crafts, and More…A weekend of non-stop musical talent, the Pleasure Island Seafood Blues and Jazz Festival features live jazz and blues performances on two stages. The music can’t be beat and the locally prepared seafood is simply the best in the region.”

“This two-day festival takes place along the scenic Cape Fear River at the Fort Fisher Military Recreational Area in Kure beach. Enjoy browsing at the Fine Arts Plaza, shopping for crafts, listening to music, and fine wine tasting.
