The Railers - 11:59 (Central Standard Time) Line Dance SUPERCUT!
Ok all of you Spuds and Spudettes, we can't let the rest of the world line dance better than us. The Railers are blowing up and they will grace the Perdue Chicken Main Stage next Friday (19th) in downtown Elizabeth City, North Carolina for our Kick-Off Party. Get your dancing shoes on!
All of you know that the U.S. Coast Guard is full of divers, pilots, all kinds of tough individuals, but we like seeing the other side. HomeBru is just that. Matt and Chelsea Brunoehler have had the pleasure of adding musicians to their band wherever they have been stationed. Whether Parris Island or Pensacola, they always find a groove. They will be performing on the "Side Stage" at the Perdue Chicken Main Stage. Two performances. 3:30 and 5:00PM on Saturday, May 20th. Don't miss it!
We are still looking for Volunteers for Saturday (3-11pm) and Sunday (Noon - 6pm). If you are interested in helping for a 2 or 4 hour shift, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Annette Bray at email@example.com or call the ECDI office at 252-338-4104 for more information.

Bobby Plough - Acoustic, Folk, Counrty, Americana
For those of you who have not had the pleasure of seeing Bobby Plough since he holstered his fork and rode off into the sunset, here's your chance to hear him at his best. On May 20th at high noon, Bobby Plough and Friends will take the Perdue Chicken Main Stage. I don't think there will be any spatchcocking going on, but he and his band of merry men will take you on a journey to the plains of Texas with his Southwest musical storytelling. To find out more about this young fella, mosey on over to his website. http://www.bobbyplough.com
We can't wait to see you..
