18 Free Tickets to the Panama City Beach Seafood, Wine and Music Festival

This weekend the Panama City Beach Seafood, Wine and Music Festival is rocking the town with awesome bands such as Styx and Grand Funk Railroad bringing hits like Mr. Roboto and We’re an American Band.  This is the second year the event has been run by a few local business men striving to make this the greatest event in Panama City Beach.

This year’s event brings the same great organization as last year, but tons more value.

Part of our media sponsorship this year includes our receiving 18 general admission tickets to give away to you that are good for free admission for any one day.  So, here we go.  Since giveaways are so awesome, post a comment below telling us your favorite song from Styx or Grand Funk Railroad or what you are most excited about this festival and you could win 2 free tickets to the Panama City Beach Seafood, Wine and Music Festival.

If you do the math, you’ll see that 9 posters are going to win.  We’re going to do the giveaway Thursday morning and will email you that day to pick up the tickets that day between 5 and 6 pm.  (sorry for the small window of time, but this is needed so we’re not driving all over town delivering tickets!)

  1. Years ago when I was 17 I remember going to see Styxx at Market Square Arena (in Indianapolis, IN) and when they played ‘The Best of Times’ I thought, “It is!!!” I would love to relive those memories again!

  2. I would love to win tickets to the festival for many resons, but most importantly for my Father Max Bowden.He lost a long battle to cancer in the nineties. He was in charge of the PARKING and the buses out of Frank Brown Park to raise money for Surfside Band. He literaly was in charge of that part of the festival from his hospitol bed just three weeks before he died.With walkie talkies and two different phone lines people calling wanting to know what to do! He loved the beach and would be proud to see how it has grown. I haven’t been to a festival since that year. I think it is time I go check it out.Loving the beach and rememberiing him! Thank You.

  5. Favorite Styx song? Hmmmm… (hint: peek at screenname). Seriously, can’t think of one I don’t love. I fell in love with Styx as a teen in the 70’s and have never stopped loving their music. Can’t wait to win my two tickets and go see them this weekend!!

  6. OMG…Styx is the bomb! Love them soooo much. Fav song, “Come Sail Away”. Great song for a wedding. Bride comes in on the slow part and after they are presented as husband and wife, the interlude with all the guitars and they go out on the “Come Sail Away”. Just a great song for a wedding! I would love to see them but more importantly to participate in the seafood festival. Love seafood!

  7. Favorite song by Styx is “Crystal Ball”, great acoustic opening into melodic guitar solo changing to power rock and back to melodic guitars ending, Tommy Shaw lyrics and vocals combined with the other voices of Styx makes this a great power ballad.
    Favorite song by Grand Funk is “Some King Of Wonderful”, I perform it acoustically myself almost every gig. However, older Grand Funk RAILROAD favorite song is “Inside Looking Out” which shows what can be done with a only drums, bass and guitar..every player has to be good, and all three, Mark, Don and Mel are all creative in their parts and the song rocks!

  8. I’m so glad to see some classic rock bands coming to this year’s festival. This is going to be the biggest ever. Because of me, my girls grew up with bands like Styx and Grand Funk Railroad. I’d love to be able to take them so they can see them play live. There’s going to be a lot of good songs, but my favorite will be by Styx, Too Much Time on My Hands. Thank you Jason

  21. Wow, if i where to win the tickets, it would be an great problem. Go see Julianne Hough Dance “UNDER” The stars, or go “Sail Away” with Styx. When my “Babe/Wife” and I go to the Seafood Festival, we always have the “Best of Times”. The Festival was where we went on our first day, and i would love to keep that tradition going. Thanks

  22. Okay. Styx has been my favorite band since I was 14 years old. The first “album” that I purchased was “The Grand Illusion” on 8-track tape! It was Rockin’. I later added the rest of the collection when they were released: Pieces of 8, Come Sail Away, and finally Greatest Hits. Now I have them all on my ipod. My, how times change!!!

  31. I love the flashback to my great childhood – – I used to have a poster/picture of Tommy Shaw on the ceiling over my bed. I think it came out of some teen magazine. I was all of 12 or 13 and I’m sure my mom and dad thought I was pretty goofy. It was all Styx, all the time – – and I lived in the city of Jazz, New Orleans, so tell me they weren’t good parents!

Oh by the way my Favorite song would be ” Come Sail Away” reminisincing of many sunset cruises, dinner cruises from St Andrews Bay….Do you think its a far fetch that PCB could maybe one day have Cruise Port for major Cruise Lines…Look at Mobile. Wishful Thinking but extrenely excited about new Airport. Let me know where to pick on the tix Friday..lol Later
