September/October 2019 

Happy Fall! 

We are settled back in St. Augustine 

and filling up our fall, winter and spring schedule. 

*     *     *     *     * 

We just played the Hope for Hope Town 

benefit concert for Abacos at Colonial Oak Music Park 

to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Dorian 

in the Bahamas. St. Augustine showed up and showed out 

with their generous support for our neighbors. 

We're so proud to be a part of this event and this community!

*     *     *     *     * 

We're also stoked about our event coming up 

at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak! 

On October 4th and 5th we'll be celebrating 

Stephen's 40th birthday 

and our wedding anniversary 

with live music from the incomparable Custard Pie

Ben Strok + the Full Electric, the Chelsey Michelle Band

and Stephen Pigman himself! 

Reserve a spot and come celebrate and camp with us! 

*     *     *     *     *

We've also been added to the bill 

for the Alligator Farm's annual 

Croctoberfest on October 12th! 

This is a great way to support not only this legendary local attraction, 

but all your favorite local breweries in one spot, too! 

And if that's not enough, you can also join us at 

Florida's largest Octoberfest!!

And the good news just keeps coming! 

Home Grown Music Network is now distributing 

our original music to over 100 radio stations all around the country! 

So call up your local station, request your favorite tracks, 

and let's get some airplay! 

 


 

The arts side of our music & arts company is also thriving! 

Our exhibit's run at Ocala's Discovery Center 

is coming to a close on September 21st. 

It's bittersweet, but they've already asked us 

to start designing another exhibit for the spring!!! 

 We'll be creating planets, stars, galaxies, 

gas clouds, spaceships and more for the 

"Astronaut Academy" 

opening in April!! We are so stoked! 

*     *     *     *     * 

We're also finishing up our life-size creepy clown props 

for Orlando's Radioactive Horror Events! 

We can't wait to share the final product, 

and we're also offering these life-size posable figures 

for Halloween decorations! 

Email us at pigmansmusicartscompany@gmail.com 

if you're interested in taking your spooky decor 

to the next level this season!

or scenic work in and around St. Augustine. 

We offer interior and exterior murals; faux finishes like stone, brick, 

marble, wood; lawn decorations; custom handmade 

hand-painted furniture; holiday decor; fiberglass sculptures;

August 2018 

Salutations!

    Our music and arts company is busy with projects and we're constantly on the lookout for new adventures, so here's a recap of July and a peek into August!

 

    We had a very busy July creating one of our favorite sets for Flagler Playhouse's annual Kid's Summer Camp! This year they produced The Wizard of Oz, Jr. Our kids and volunteers helped us paint some of the scenes that were seared into our childhood memories.

The Great and Powerful Oz hand puppet

 

The Gates of Oz

 

Professor Marvel's gypsy cart

 

Dorothy's farmhouse

 

The Emerald City!

 


   

       We also discovered a few new spectacular venues like Yellow Dog Eats in New Smyrna Beach,

 

Wekiva Island in Longwood, 

 

and the Cummer Museum in Jacksonville!

 


   

     This coming month, we are thrilled to play new venues Spliff's Gastropub in Jacksonville on the 5th, 

 

Riptides Rawbar in Ormond Beach on the 29th, 

 

and Kona Tiki Bar in Ormond Beach on the 31st!

 

            We are always looking for cool places to explore, so if you have a place we should play, please let us know! We are building tour routes all over the country and we would love to play your favorite venue.

 


   

        Back at Flagler Playhouse, we are gearing up for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street opening September 21st and running through October 7th. This Sondheim musical is a macabre masterpiece and we are looking forward to the challenge!

        Set in 1785 London, this set will be influenced by horror and elements of steampunk, so it's perfect for the Halloween season. You can purchase tickets here

         

      


 

           We are always planning, and this fall we're looking forward to a few trips and tours:

     For our one year wedding anniversary, we'll be back at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park because we just bought tickets for the Roots Revival Festival. We look forward to camping out and supporting our friends who are on the bill!

      We've also booked a mini-tour down in St. Pete in October and we're super jazzed because this trip we get to play Florida's oldest microbrewery, The Dunedin Brewery!

    After that, we'll mosey on up to Appalachia for our fall Thanksgiving Tasting Tour, including dates in Greenville, SC; Black Mountain, NC; Athens, GA; and Stephen's hometown: Huntington, WV!

       We could never hope to accomplish all of this without your continuous love and support! Thank you so much for listening to our music, coming out to shows, buying our merch, following our social media, letting us crash at your place on tour, and reading our newsletter! We love sharing this experience with you all. 

      Now go out and make your own art! Rock on!

 

Most Sincerely, 

Stephen and Jessica
