Jacksonville’s Florida Theatre hosts Gregg Allman and JJ Grey & Mofro on New Year’s Eve.
Rolling Stone magazine, the country’s premier authority on music, politics, and popular culture, has published a list of New Years Eve 2013’s hottest concerts. From Manhattan’s Times Square to Southern California, the list is a definitive guide of the best places to ring in 2014 from coast to coast. According to the magazine, Jacksonville will be one of the hottest places to ring in the 2014 this year.
Fans on Florida’s First Coast are invited to join Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman and North Florida native JJ Grey & Mofro to toast 2014 at the Florida Theatre on December 31, 2013 at 9pm for a very special New Year’s Eve concert.
Of the 34 concerts named by Rolling Stone Magazine, only 5 are in Florida, and Jacksonville is the only in Northeast Florida.
