The team at Seachasers Lounge in Jacksonville Beach recently announced its summer programming.

Located alongside Celebrity Chef Kenny Gilbert's restaurants, the live entertainment venue will be hosting “Summer Acoustic Sessions” on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. throughout the summer months. Performances will include soulful blues from Jacksonville native Big John Austill, St. Augustine-based Kyria Livingston, DiCarlo Thompson strumming southern rock and Stacey Bennett on the banjo from June through August.
