“Embrace the Chaos!” Trop Rock Music Series at The Cantina

Join Crab Island Cantina and Crab Island Mambo as we team up to bring some of the best Trop Rock musicians to the Emerald Coast and Harborwalk Village in Destin.

Logo                              The Cantina

Each third Friday from March through October, The Cantina will showcase some of the best Trop Rock acts in the country. Everyone is welcome to escape to the tropics with us for these FREE shows. Put on your best flip flops and Hawaiian shirts for a fun evening of music with friends.

To help you “Embrace the Chaos!” Crab Island Mambo is designing “Mambo Member” cards. These cards will be FREE and will entitle you to receive 15% off your food and drinks at The Cantina during the shows. The “Mambo Member” cards will be available in a few weeks.

The “Embrace the Chaos!” Trop Rock Music Series at The Cantina kicks off on Friday March 21, 2014 with the Trop Rock Junkies from the Tampa, FL area. This high energy band of 6 talented musicians will have you up and dancing in no time. With a mix of original songs, tropical songs and some Jimmy Buffett thrown in, the music will transport you to a place where the sun always shines and the drinks have umbrella’s in them!

Trop Rock Junkies

The Trop Rock Junkies will play from 5-9 pm at The Cantina. Last year they were nominated for 4 Trop Rock Music awards. The band is in high demand around the country and we are lucky to have them playing in Destin.

Let’s kickoff our “Embrace the Chaos!” Trop Rock Music Series at The Cantina with a big bang! Invite your friends, invite your neighbors and bring the crew as everyone will love the music!

Crab Island Cantina is located in Destin at Harborwalk Village at the foot of the Destin bridge. You can even come by boat if you want.

Look for updates as we book acts for the balance of the music series.

Parrotheads and fans of Trop Rock music are some of the most generous people in the world. “Angels in Tropical Shirts,” “Party with a Purpose,” raffles, donations…..Hundreds and thousands of dollars are donated to charity each year. There are several companies that cater to Parrotheads who donate portions of their sales to various charities.

Here at Crab Island Mambo, we take a different tact when it comes to helping our fellow American’s. We do business with American Companies that employees Americans. We buy our tee shirts from a company that makes the shirts in California. They also only use cotton grown in the US employing farmers to grow the cotton and truck drivers to move the cotton.

Made in America

Our koozies are made in the US. We then employee American’s to work on the graphics, do the artwork and finally to print the tee shirts and koozies. We sell jewelry that is made by hand here in the US. We will be adding hats and some other items in the near future. All of them will be Made in America.

Why do we do this? Because we feel it is important to keep American manufacturing alive and well. We want to see American’s employed. Crab Island Mambo wants to keep our hard earned dollars in the US. When we employ the American worker he will in turn spend money that will employ more Americans. It is our belief that most people want to work and it is more beneficial to our economy to put people to work.

Sunshine Cindy

Crab Island Mambo does what it can to help the American worker. We are a very small company but we believe we can make a difference. Please help us by considering to purchased some of our shirts and koozies. And to entice you to “Embrace the Chaos!” we have a SPECIAL OFFER! If you spend $30 or more on an order, you will receive free shipping to anywhere in the US including Alaska and Hawaii. (We might even hand deliver the order to Hawaii!!! LOL)

We hope you take us up on our special offer but with anything you buy, look at the label of origin. Many times American Made items are readily available at a competitive cost. We live in the greatest country in the world. Crab Island Mambo will do it’s small part to keep it alive and working by selling Made in America items!!!

SORRY BUT THIS TRIP WAS NOT ABLE TO GET ENOUGH SUPPORT IN THE SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME TO GUARANTEE THE RESERVATIONS.

Jerry Diaz has announced a Barefoot Cruise aboard a motorized sailboat March 17-22. You must act quickly if you wish to join in this great cruise. Below is information from Jerry.

"A unique opportunity to sail the Caribbean islands you've been hearing Jimmy Buffett sing and write about for years - Jost Van Dyke, Anguilla, Tortola, and more. Hangout at barefoot beach bars such as Foxyʼs, the Soggy Dollar, and Sunshineʼs. Feast on a cheeseburger in paradise as you people watch at the famous Le Select in St. Barts. All while enjoying live performances throughout the week from our own Barefoot Islands Cruise Band featuring Scott Nickerson, founding member of the first official Jimmy Buffet tribute band A1A, and Jerry Diaz, Mark Mireles, and Bobby Summers of the popular trop rock band Hannaʼs Reef.".  

  

"This exclusive full ship charter of the 312 passenger motor-sailing ship Wind Surf of Windstar Cruise Lines will have us island hopping the best of the Caribbean in luxury. The intimate size of this beautiful five-masted ship will allow us to visit the smaller, out-of-the-way islands not accessible to large cruise ships. We will be anchored off islands with our launches landing passengers at small docks or directly onto beaches. Our custom itinerary will allow us to stay at these anchorages most evenings so we can fully experience the legendary local night life and establishments. Clear blue waters, white sand beaches, and bountiful boat drinks - the ultimate attitude adjustment!"
 

We have a rare window of opportunity to secure the ship for this unique luxury small ship charter. We need to determine within one week if there are enough fans out there with serious interest in sailing with us. If you are definitely interested please email: kevin@localknowledgetravel.com  no later than Wednesday, September 7th.
