The pretty cool thing about living in Pensacola is that many celebrities vacation in the area. Some are smart enough to invest in a house or condo. Keifer and Shawna from Thompson Square happen to already be from the area and live about an hour or so from Pensacola.
Our local radio station, Cat Country 98.7 decided to host their morning show at the Pensacola Crawfish Festival. So at 3 a.m. they set up shop on the entertainment stage at the festival and hosted their show that morning. But that’s not all because that morning they announced a surprise acoustic set. Thompson Square was on their way to a performance in Live Oak, Florida. They would have already been passing through the area and decided to stop and play a short set. Keifer rode his motorcycle to Pensacola with the bus. I believe Shawna and Keifer were both going to ride their bikes to Live Oak.
They sang their hits Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About, If I Didn’t Have You and Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not. With coffee in hand, they chatted with Brent and Candy, listeners and genuinely had a nice time in a relaxed environment. After their acoustic set, Shawna and Keifer stayed and took photos with everyone on stage and in front of the Cat Country 98.7 backdrop.
