The Florida Theatre is pleased to welcome Sawyer Brown on Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 8 p.m. The last time that the group came to JAX was back in August of 2019. You don’t want to miss him this year. COVID protocol may change by the time this event is scheduled to take place.
Florida’s own Sawyer Brown is a country music band that spans
3 decades. Originally formed in 1981 in Apopka, Florida, the band has released
18 studio albums and charted over fifty times on the Hot Country Songs charts,
including three number one singles; “Step That Step”, “Some Girls Do” and
“Thank God For You”.
The group's members were originally part of country pop singer Don King's road band. When King stopped touring in 1981, the group decided to stay together and eventually auditioned for Star Search in 1983. They won the grand prize of $100,000 and a recording contract. The band signed with Capitol Records and scored a Top 20 hit with their first single, "Leona", in 1984. That success was quickly followed by their first number one hit, "Step That Step".
Sawyer Brown is comprised of Mark Miller (lead vocals), Gregg Hubbard (keyboards/piano), Joe Smyth (drums/percussion) and Shayne Hill (lead guitar).
Vocalist Mark Miller has written many of Sawyer Brown’s hits, including “Step That Step,” “The Walk,” “Thank God for You,” “The Boys and Me,” as well as the band’s anthem: “Some Girls Do.” Miller is also responsible for discovering the band Casting Crowns and has produced all of the band’s CDs, winning a Grammy for his work with them along the way. In April 2013, Ring the Bell, a movie that Mark wrote and produced, was released—and he has more movies in the pre-production stage.
The historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre is sponsored by Community First Credit Union. For a complete list of upcoming events or to buy tickets visit the their official website, floridatheatre.com.
