If I Had A Hammer

Eustace, our Steel Pan peformer had his complete set solen from the corner of Cathedral and Charlotte last night. He stepped away momentarily and it was gone ! "It is not so much the drum as I can create a new one but the hammers are special." says Eustace. We want to see him back for the upcoming inaugural Junkanoo -Goombay Festival* in the Plaza on Saturday May 19.

*The above festival is not to be confused with Goombah Festival held on River Street in Hoboken N. J. every other weekend or whenever. Not even close!

  1. There is also a Goombah Fesitval in Key West every year about 1 week before Fantasy Fest...Its a Bahamian Festival. I loved it more than Fantasy Fest...
    My heart goes out to Eustis...He was one of the Better strret musicains we have.
    This town is changing and changing fast. Homeless, bad politicains, drugs and thievery. I had my long time (14y) pet stolen, right from my front porch...
    It is a sad state of affairs for St. Augustine...we dont want to become Jacksonville South, but it seems we are being engulfed by a wave of people coming here and with that you have to take the good and the bad. Unfortunately, my experience with the changes-a-coming have all been bad...
