Drink & Navigate Island Life! For over two decades, I’ve been a professional Sunshine Billionaire story telling musician, known as the Barstool Sailor. My passion for the Florida Keys followed by a degree in history and education from UM, has lyrically tailored and created hours of unique original music. My music is a tropical hibernation of songs from a casual observer of paradise. I’ve enjoyed playing house concerts tours, tiki bars as well as fun festivals. Presently, as a long time Islamorada Keys Critter in training, I’ve lived, experienced and cared about the Keys as a bartender, kayak guide and full-time musician. I’m also an author of a cartoon coloring book called The Adventures of Humphrey the Manatee.
Born and raised in the Florida Keys, Leah Sutter is the youngest of four children to parents John and Michele. Leah realized her talents and love of music early on in her life and, with the support of her family, quickly immersed herself in the art. Soon she was receiving classical voice training and taking both piano and guitar lessons. In middle and high school, Leah often performed in talent shows, arts showcases, drama, and musical theater in an effort to perfect her performance style. As Leah’s involvement in the Keys music scene grew, she learned she could connect with people and make them smile with her music. Today these remain her motivations for pursuing a music career. Leah continued to develop her signature sound through her training. While attending Florida State University, she took piano lessons and went through classical voice training at FSU, as well as directed music and art shows and performances in the Tallahassee community. Leah’s repertoire was expanded by her position as lead singer in the band Leah & the Aviators (L&A)—whose music generally falls under the Alternative Rock/Adult Contemporary genre. They performed in many FSU showcases and Tallahassee music and art festivals. The band released their debut album “Air Ride” on November 4, 2014, which can be found on iTunes, Spotify, etc.

Michael Sean Allman is a musician. He is the lead vocalist and frontman to the Michael Allman Band. He is the first-born son of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Gregg Allman (founding member of the Allman Brothers Band). Personal Life Michael Allman was born on July 3, 1966. He was raised in Daytona Beach, Florida. His parents, Gregg Allman (legendary musician) and go-go dancer Mary Lynn Sutton met at Daytona Beach, Florida. Growing up, Michael Allman never really knew his biological father. His original surname — Hendrick — came from the man his mother married to legitimize his birth. After that brief union ended, his mother married Daniel Green, the man Allman originally believed was his father. When Allman was 6 years old, Green died in a Learjet crash. As he was mourning Green's crash, his mother told him about his birth father, Gregg Allman, Gregg didn't openly admit he is the father until 1985, 13 years after the crash and when Michael Allman was 19 years old. Career While the Michael Allman's album Hard Labor Creek stands on its own merits, he isn’t ashamed of his heritage, and there are several references to his famous father. “Laid Back” written by Sonny Tackett, was inspired by Gregg Allman’s album of the same name. “If Dreams Were Money” was written for Gregg Allman years ago by veteran Boston musician Bruce Marshall. Still, the spotlight is firmly on Michael, who wrote four of the songs on the CD, and delivers each tune with the kind of thoughtful approach that squeezes the inner meaning out of every song that he sings. Michael has become his own man, with a style similar to his father but with his unique growls and stage presence he wows the fans over. He will always be the son of Gregg Allman and keep his music alive, but his own music will live on for eternity just like his father. Michael Allman and MY PEACH LIFE LLC
Steve Venini Band
Steve Venini – Acoustic Guitar & Lead Vocals Genre: Americana, Blues and Triple A I grew up and started my career playing shows and clubs in the Northwest.

Chris Lute is the finest guitar player I know, Dave Bowman is a talented and solid bass man, and Jeremy Whitman has an intuitive and tasty style that holds us all together.
The Little Things
Unlike anything you'd expect. A ukulele duo based in South Florida, started in New Orleans in 2013 Katy Channing and Shanece Gransam started off busking in New Orleans playing only covers, they now also perform their originals and have recently released their first original EP. With the use of a looper station, they transform just two ukuleles and voices into a much bigger sound to create a nice mix of indie folk and pop. Now they're travelling around the world, fully supporting themselves with melodic harmonies and compact instruments. email@example.com katyandshanece.com
Caitlin Rushing would be the first one to say she didn’t know what it would take to do what she was always dreaming to do. But she did know there were songs, pieces, feelings, melodies, and musings, and they had to get out. 4 years since her first lyric was penned, as well as going through personal tumult, these were songs that needed to be born. “I’m feeling myself become the woman I was meant to become. Learning through living, writing, and singing, and that stripping away all the restraints of things that had weighed me down for so long; this is exhilarating and freeing,” replies Caitlin. “I’m not taking my time, but with an attitude of commitment and conviction, and really stepping up to let my passion come to the forefront. I’m not going to do any less than what has to be done to find myself.” From producer Billy Smiley’s (WhiteHeart, Johnny Cash, Newsboys, Clay Aiken) opening guitar parts, bringing in mixing engineer Richie Biggs of The Civil Wars, and to players who play for artists like Robert Plant, Rascal Flatts, Vince Gill, and Switchfoot, these new songs are the beginning of a new venture into the vulnerable world of ‘Caitlin Rushing’ music.
