Hurricane Katrina hits Gulf Coast:

August 29th 2005 is a day most of us will never forget. Over one million Americans and numerous Parrothead families were left homeless. Parrotheads In Paradise along with The Parrothead Charitable Foundation have created a foundation to help Parrotheads in need. The PHIN foundation is a foundation to which Parrotheads can donate to help fellow Parrotheads. 100% of donations will go to those in need.  For more information see www.phip.com there is a link to the PHIN foundation there.

Jimmy Gladden and The Rock-a-fellas will provide entertainment for the party on October 15th  at the Field Trial Barn in Fort Mill. On the menu…Oysters, grilled Chicken and Oyster shooters. This is a costume party but, costumes are optional...clothing not!. There will be a prize for the winner! Monies raised from the oyster shooters will support the PHIN foundation.  The party starts at 7:30 when Jimmy Gladden takes the stage. Admission $10.00.

Party at Lake Wateree

The food was great…Cheryl, Jennifer and Jim out did themselves! The lake felt great and the music Jon Durham provided was wonderful!

Sandlappers help Parrothead friend affected by Hurricane

  When asked to help out, Sandlappers were happy to pitch in for a friend affected by Katrina. Joe Bennett is an Entertainer/

Songwriter and resided in the New Orleans area. When Hurricane Katrina hit his city he lost his job at Margaritaville and was displaced from his home.  We pitched in together, found gigs for him, hosted a benefit and provided a place for him to stay while in our area. Thanks to BobRob, Ron and everyone else who helped in this effort. If you haven’t seen a Joe Bennett show, you are really missing out. He will be in our area for a while and we will keep you posted on his gigs.
