Ida Cox Grand Finale

“Still Cruzin” will be the featured band on August 9 at the final concert of the 2014 season of the Ida Cox Music Series from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Still Cruzin’ has over thirty years of experience in the entertainment industry.  The eight piece band has performed nationally and internationally and its members are very knowledgeable musicians in their own right. Each member has years of experience in varying genres of music. This allows Still Cruzin to not only perform Motown and R&B for which it is known for, but to provide Rock Standards, Country, Blues and even Jazz if called upon to do so.

Still Cruzin' is known as "The Party Band of the South" Their established band of fifteen years is bigger and better than ever, since they have expanded the band to include a full horn section. Still Cruzin' are talented, well organized, and experienced entertainers that strive to go the extra mile for every performance.

This year’s Ida Cox Music Series has included 10 nights of music on Doyle Street in downtown Toccoa. Many of the concerts have included local performers as well as regional bands. Each evening has been sponsored by one of the downtown businesses with a special give away from their business.

“The event will be held rain or shine,” according to Sharon Crosby, Special Events Coordinator. “There is a high chance of rain, but don’t let that stop you from coming down and enjoying the evening. If it is raining, we will move into the Cornerstone Restaurant on Doyle Street. There will also be other activities that evening like a shag contest. We invite everyone to come and have a great time as we celebrate this year’s Ida Cox Music Series.”   

This concert is supported in part by the Georgia Council for the Arts through the appropriations of the Georgia General Assembly.  GCA also receives support from its partner agency—the National Endowment for the Arts.
