Live at the Blue Door

Your blog turned us on to a great new venue in Brunswick, Live at the Blue Door. We saw 2 bands: The Conni Laine Band and the Chicago tribute group, Chi-Town. Both were great and the venue is superior with excellent acoustics and sound. To top it off the owners and hosts Conni & Enzo are fun and attentive. Thanks for keeping our community aware of what is going on. Everyone should check out Live at the Blue Door.

Music Genre?

Would be REALLY helpful to know what type of music is being played, otherwise this is meaningless to those not from this area.

Jami 151 days ago


That's kind of hard to do sometimes because we don't always have info about bands, but I've created a separate page listing the local bands/genres that I'll include with the weekly blog, and I've done my best to put the info in this week's blog for you too.

Band Updates

I don't have any info about the band, and only post what they share. As far as I know they've been playing at Island Jerk Shak in Brunswick every Thursday night.

Name of the Band?

We cannot remember the name of a band. We saw them twice at Palm Coast Cafe. I think the name was Ambrosis or Ambrosius...? It was a woman singer and piano player. Jam Band. Do you know who they are or the name of the band? Do they still play? They are amazing!!

Whitney 335 days ago

Michaele Hannemann

Ambrosius no longer exists, but you can catch Michaele & the Ambiguous playing around town & that’s your girl. She also performs solo & guests with other bands pretty frequently.

Which bands play country?

Thomas more than 2 years ago


Well, what actually constitutes "country" music is up for debate, but Brent Browning, who's in town & playing at Village Inn & Pub Friday & Saturday (8/25-26), lives in Nashville & has a regular gig at Tootsies, so you might want to check him out. Half Mile Bridge also does some country. Pine Box Dwellers do Americana/Southern Rock/blues/country. Skeeter Truck does country/bluegrass.

Kathi (elegantislandliving.net) more than 2 years ago

Half Mile Bridge

Half Mile Bridge plays hit from Country, Rock, Blues, Funk spanning the years of favorites.

Jody Frost more than 2 years ago

Fiddle players on the isles?

Any bands with fiddle players that we can enjoy locally?

Chris H more than 3 years ago

Good question

Mountain Oyster String Band may have a fiddle in their repertoire, but I'm not sure. The bands I know who did are no longer playing. There is good bluegrass/folk/Americana band from Savannah who will be playing at Mullet Bay tonight (Friday) - City Hotel, and I thought they might, but it looks like they're mandolin, banjo, upright bass & guitar.

Kathi (elegantislandliving.net) more than 3 years ago

Fiddle/violin yes

Take Two Music Duet. Violin and guitar playing swing tunes, tango, Latin and other varieties.

Thank you, Sandra. As I've said, it's my own love of music that led me to create "I'm With the Band," so I'm always glad to hear it's appreciated and that people are using it to find the local music. ~KW

Kathi (elegantislandliving.net) more than 4 years ago

Thank you!!

Thank you Kathy for making this info available. Know it takes time and effort to keep up with local music. Took me a while stumbling around other sites to find out what was going on in the Brunswick/SSI area for this upcoming weekend. Good music options for evening activities is a huge criteria in selecting weekend get away places. Your blog will make it so much easier to schedule many return visits. Hope the local tourism folks appreciate your work. Thank you, thank you!

Hat's off to the lovely and talented Kathi Williams, for all she does for the arts and particularly live music in the Golden Isles. It's a massive undertaking that we sometimes take for granted. Thanks Miss Kathi!
