If you haven’t made plans for this weekend yet, then it might be a good opportunity for you to check out what’s going on down in Bay St. Louis, especially for music lovers.

The infamous and legendary Gregg Allman of The Allman Brothers Band will be performing at Bay Harbor Fest in downtown Bay St. Louis.

My husband, is a huge fan of their music and sadly, he will not be able to attend due to his work schedule. Needless to say, he is bummed about it.
