“When we canceled Suwannee Rising 2020, we never imagined the challenges it would present to society and especially the live music industry,” noted organizer Paul Levine. “We viewed the situation with a glass half-full attitude, realistic but hopeful. No one wanted to accept a world without the live music experience. After producing two intimate post-Covid shows at the park and attending other drive-in events, we learned that while no one can eliminate 100% of risk from their lives, it is possible to produce a great show that fans, staff, and artists can attend and still dance and feel safe. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our musical community over the last year through the twists and turns of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
