The Florida Theatre
February 16, 2012

Celebrate the outstanding work and service of Neil Armingeon.  Support your next St. Johns Riverkeeper, Lisa Rinaman.

On Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 8 p.m., a special musical event will be held at the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville to honor Neil, benefit the St. Johns Riverkeeper organization, and show support for Neil's successor, Lisa Rinaman.

The evening will feature full musical sets from luminaries Van Dyke Parks and Billy Joe Shaver. Parks has a lengthy list of credits as a composer, arranger, producer and musician. He is perhaps best known for his collaborations with the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson. Shaver is a fabulous honky tonking country outlaw, whose songs have been recorded by Elvis Presely, Bob Dylan, Allman Brothers, Waylon Jennings, Allison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Lee Lewis, Patty Loveless, Willie Nelson & Johnny Cash, just to name a few.

Come see these true American originals, as we honor Neil Armingeon, celebrate the accomplishments of St. Johns Riverkeeper during his tenure, and welcome our new Riverkeeper.
