The Deal

The Outlaws

  • One of The Outlaws’s earliest fans: Clive Davis, who signed them to his scrappy start-up label, Arista
  • What they did in return: racked up gold or platinum certification for three albums in a row; toured with The Allman Brothers, The Doobie Brothers, and The Rolling Stone Brothers
  • Songs you know: “Green Grass & High Tides,” “There Goes Another Love Song,” “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky”
  • What links these songs: the band’s signature assault of dual lead guitars, drum-tight three- and four-part harmonies, and a country-tinged rock feel
  • Why their 2012 album, It’s About Pride, is significant: it marked the band’s big return to the music world, having survived legal battles, personnel changes, and the deaths of several founding members
  • How they’re spending their nights post-resurgence: playing as many as 150 shows per year
  • About those shows, according to Bill Robinson of the Huffington Post: “The Outlaws helped define Southern Rock for me and for generations of fans. Seeing them onstage with The Charlie Daniels Band, Marshall Tucker Band, Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd or countless others was, for a long time, one of the best experiences I could have. And so it was again when I saw The Outlaws play recently.”

Blackhawk

  • Their sound: pure country about heartbreak, love, and regret, all brightened by layered vocal harmonies and guitars filled with glowing radioactive waste
  • Their namesake: the luxury car Stutz Blackhawk, which ruled the highway in the ’70s and ’80s
  • Their early hits: the breakup anthem “Goodbye Says It All, “Down In Flames,” and “I Sure Can Smell the Rain”
  • Where all of those songs appeared: on the band’s self-titled 1994 debut
  • How many albums that came after that: six, including their latest, 2014’s Brothers of the Southland
  • Their current lineup: original members Henry Paul and Dave Robbins, as supported by a crack backing band

Florida Theatre

When it opened in 1927, the Florida Theatre was the largest of 15 cinemas in downtown Jacksonville. Today, it's the city's last surviving vestige of that era's iconic architecture. Designed by New Yorker R.E. Hall and Jacksonvillian Roy Benjamin, the venue is a prime example of the Mediterranean Revival style, with a ceiling covered in glittering stars and a six-story proscenium arch. And even as the entertainment industry shifted towards television, the Florida Theatre survived by hosting interactive game nights and concerts from underground artists, including Elvis Presley. The space was renovated In the early 1980s, and today it returns to its entertaining roots by hosting live events and classic film screenings.
