The Experience: Jimi Hendrix Tribute at LkldLive
Jul 1 @ 8:00 pm – 11:59 pm

50 Years ago the world was introduced to a young man from Washington who pushed the limits of what an electric guitar could do. His incendiary live performances influenced a generation of young guitarists – there was nobody quite like him.

We celebrate the music of Jimi Hendrix by presenting his 1967 “Are You Experienced?” album LIVE ON STAGE, along with all your favorite Hendrix tunes, performed by Mr David Brimer and his band of gypsies.

The show will feature a psychedelic light show and we’ll also be running a competition to find the best of Lakeland’s up & coming young guitarists – with one winner being invited to accompany the band onstage to perform the legendary PURPLE HAZE.

Jah Movement at Red White & Kaboom
Jul 3 @ 6:00 pm – 11:59 pm

The T.Mims Corp. Red, White & Kaboom Independence Celebration will take place at Lake Mirror along the Frances Langford Promenade on Monday, July 3rd from 6:00 p.m. – 9 p.m. with a breathtaking fireworks display dazzling the crowd at 9 p.m. The festivities will start with a live concert featuring the energetic Jah Movement blending their brand of reggae that includes iconic pop songs with an island feel.

Jah Movement have the distinction of winning Creative Loafing’s ‘Best Local Reggae Band’ in the Tampa Bay Area. The band commands the stage with Damie Caines, former lead vocalist of popular band ‘Democracy’. He provides his unique sounds that many local reggae artists can’t touch. He shares the spotlight with Shantel Norman, who is one of the most popular female vocalist in Southwest Florida. She can sing ANY genre of music and she certainly entertains the crowd.

Jah Movement has established a well-known name and reputation throughout Florida with a passion for live performances. They bring their own sound that includes reggae with a touch of R&B, Soul and Funk. You never know what popular songs they will pull out the box at each show!

Tom Mims, President of T. Mims Corporation said, “We are very excited to sponsor Red, White & Kaboom again this year. It is an excellent opportunity for our community to come together in celebration of our great country and it is free to the public.” He added, “However, we ask all those attending to bring a canned food item that will help those in need. All non-perishable items benefit Volunteers in Service to the Elderly (VISTE).”

During Red, White & Kaboom there will be a variety of food trucks around Lake Mirror so bring a blanket, bring your appetite and enjoy the festivities in celebrating our great nation. Food vendors for the event include: Becky’s Hot Dogs, Chick-Fil-A, Manolito’s Cubans, Gelati Joe’s, Thunder Hollow Kettle Korn, Mr. C’s Gourmet Grilled Cheese, Doughlicious – Edible Cookie Dough, Lakeland BBQ Company and IC Swirls – Rolled Ice Cream.

The event will conclude with a dramatic display of fireworks over the lake. The evening is free to the public and everyone attending is encouraged to bring at least one non-perishable food item to benefit VISTE. Those attending can bring their own cooler but no glass bottles please. Also, no pop-up tents or large beach umbrellas are allowed.

There will be a Snapchat geofilter for the event so all those attending are encouraged to use the filter and share their experiences through social media using #redwhiteandkaboom2017 and #RWK2017

All City parking garages will be open for T.Mims Corp. Red, White & Kaboom. For more information go to www.lakelandgov.net.
