First Note Music Hall experience returns to Seascape, Vue

In November, Seascape Resort called him, asking him to take the show on the road to Seascape at their new outdoor stage. Jackson agreed. Seascape will use its expansive outdoor space to create a musical night under the stars every Friday and Saturday.

However, the 30A community had also been good to him and Jackson did not want to turn his back on them. Jackson said he looked around at various venues and met with Tim Cole, general manager at The Vue on 30A. They agreed to a schedule of 20 shows on Sunday evenings, and now the veranda at The Vue will be transformed into a music set to welcome locals and visitors for an end of the weekend performance.

Seascape's venue will offer VIP chairs and tables as well as ground seating for blankets and portable chairs brought by attendees.

"You can go online to purchase and choose where you want to sit," said Jackson .

Each performance will feature three to four artists from around the country, representing different musical genres. From country, pop and rock to blues and R&B, the artists, singers and songwriters come together to tell stories and perform a musical medley that creates a connection with the audience as the stage is constantly shuffling from artist to artist.

 “Even if you aren’t a fan of a specific genre, in four or five songs the stage is lighting up with another talented performer from another genre. It’s like shuffling songs on your iTunes. You would be amazed at how many pop fans now like country,” Jackson said noting that past performers of First Note have since gone on to be featured on TV and mainstream radio.

Co-hosting with him will be country music singer, Brian McComas. McComas recently wrapped up the fifth season of “Nashville Unplugged,” a weekly show in Las Vegas , which features singer/songwriters in an intimate setting sharing the stories behind the music. He is also known for his hit, the Billboard Country Top Ten single, “99.9% Sure (I’ve Never Been Here Before)”.
