I'm living the Florida 70s nightlife life!

Who can forget when Harmony and Grits played at Nero's Nook? This is a big stack of pics that I scanned as a single collection. Most are 8"x10", but a few are snapshots. They represent something of a snapshot of the bar and entertainment scene in the Gulf Coast resort town of Fort Walton Bch, FL, circa 1970s. Most are of bands, entertainers and a few strippers. If you are from this area, you may well recognize some of the faces. They are in no order. (Via.)

Of course, I went straight for the NSFW shots. "Dusty Summers" sounds very Oklahomish.

Great find; I especially liked this pic.

Something tells me that sharing a joint with Nyman Furr of the Little Juice band would have been kind of awesome.

Are those shirts supposed to look like anuses?

I guess that's just a word I've never considered the plural of before.

I don't want to be exposed to shirts that look like anuses.

I respectfully decline agreement.

I'm not from the area. But I just saw The Blues Brothers for about the jillionth time last night and I'm almost positive that whoever designed Murph and the Mello-tones got his/her ideas entirely from Cornbread.

Thank you, mom and dad, for ensuring I grew up in the 1980s, holy cats.

I think that's forgivable, given your condition.

Just two words: Nyman Furr.
