Many of the Keys best and best loved musicians will let it rip at the 6th Annual Key West Musician’s Festival, which takes the stage Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 17 and 18, at the Smokin’ Tuna Saloon, 2 p.m. till 9 p.m. each day.

Singing Iguana Productions are presenters of the free music fest and the event is critical annual fundraiser for the local charity, Sister Season Fund, which assists locals in the entertainment and hospitality industries with rent and utilities when they are out of work through no fault of their own. “Last year’s festival was a great success; the energy at Smokin’ Tuna for those two days was electric,” said a grateful SSF President Emeritus Ginger King.

On the program for the 6th annual festival Key West icons such as, Ericson Holt, Nick Norman, Al Subarsky, Clint Bullard, Liz O’Connor, Black and Skabuddah, Dora Gholson, Greg Gerace, James Whithead, Rolando Rojas, Caribe, Tim M Curtis, L.A. Wood, Ray West, Gina Maserati, Michelle Dravis, Robert Douglas, Michael McLoud, Carl Peachey, Michael Festa, Jersey Slim, Frankendread, Rich McKay, Richie Ciavolino, Woody Jenkins, RG Welles, Happy Dog, Tony Roberts, and Ben Harrison, Tony Baltimore, Bahama Village Social Club and so many more.  Adding to the entertainment lineup is the masterful, funny man in a kilt; Will Thompson as emcee.

“We have an awesome lineup including musicians, singers and songwriters performing just for locals,” said co-founder and festival producer Ken Floyd. “Of course, visitors are welcome too.”  “We hope that our Poker Run friends will join us again this year.”  Singing Iguana Productions’ commemorative T-shirts, magnets and CDs will be available as well.

Smokin’ Tuna Saloon is located at 4 Charles St. in Old Town, off Lower Duval. For additional information please contact King at (305) 849-0991 or [email protected] or visit keywestmusiciansfestival.com.
