Join us for our upcoming Nashville Field Trip, July 12 – 14!

Here’s why our July Field Trips are UNFORGETTABLE:

July 12: Friday night, Antsy serves his popular Southern spread of Gumbo, cornbread and greens, and then we gather in the living room for a jam with his buddy and collaborator Chris “SPOONS” Long, and some other hot-pickin’ musicians TBA. 

July 13: Saturday, we go on an off-the-beaten-path, MUSICAL TOUR of Nashville. I focus on vintage Nashville, old music row and some of the underbelly of this old town that’s going through so many changes. Saturday night’s performer is the dynamic singer/songwriter Cassidy Daniels. She’s Florida-born-and-raised but is now tearing it up in Nashville. I discovered her mighty talent and magnetism on Instagram and invited her to join us. You’re gonna love her. HERE is a link to Cassidy and her music. We’re having Summer Vegetables, grown locally, grilled to perfection and served with the best Nashville Hot Chicken you’ll ever eat. (Antsy’s favorite spot.) 

July 14: Sunday night we have the spellbinding guitarist Edgar Cruz winding us up after we’ve had our bellies full of Tennessee BBQ. I will also be inviting some well known guitar slingers to hang out, as a major guitar festival will be winding down in Nashville. July is always a blast around here. Some of my favorite house concert memories have happened in the summer. 

MASSAGE! To further make you feel like you’re on Summer vacation, we are fortunate to have Michelle Roy, a popular, licensed massage therpist based in Sarasota, Florida, with us for the weekend, and she will have a massage chair set up for anyone who might want a little relaxation and body work in between activities, during happy hour, etc. She’s incredible. HERE is her website. 

Now, If you’re skeerd of the heat or humidity, don’t be. Nashville is beautiful in the Summer, the fascinating cicadas will be in full song mode, and contrary to semi-popular belief, all of our buildings have air conditioning here. LOL. Cold beer on ice, water and soft drinks will be plentiful, and we’re all going to be having so much fun, no one’s even gonna think about the heat. If you’ve never partied in the South on a Sweet Summer Night, you don’t know what you’re missing. We do it up right, baby! Come and experience what all the Country Songs talk about! It’s a thing. I can’t wait. 

DAY PASSES: If you’re LOCAL and just wanna hang out one night, that’s totally cool. Just email me at antsymc@gmail.com
