Stars Over St. Lucie – a 4th of July Celebration

On July 4th, 1776, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and a few others unveiled the official Declaration of Independence. The Declaration of Independence is an important part of our history because it was the first time a nation had been founded on the principals that all people “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” and that these rights would be guaranteed by the people and our government.

Today, our city government has stepped forward and we are proud of the City of Fort Pierce for sponsoring the fireworks for all of our community to enjoy. “Stars over St. Lucie” a 4th of July Celebration will be held on Friday, July 4, 2014 at Fort Pierce City Marina Square. The 4th of July is an American tradition and a time to celebrate American’s freedoms. We hope that you will bring your family and friends down to Marina Square and celebrate with the City of Fort Pierce at Stars over St. Lucie.

The day begins at 3:00 pm with music by Category 5 and the Storm Horns. Category 5 and the Storm Horns is the Treasure Coast’s premier Blues and R&B band. Members Al Nawrocki (Bass Guitar/Lead Vocals), Gerry Mullaney (Guitar/Vocals) Mike Heneks (Guitar/Vocals) and Ted Anesse (Drums) will perform tunes by such artists as Robert Cray, BB King, Wilson Pickett, Johnny Lang, Eric Clapton and more. They will definitely leave you blown away and screaming for more.

At 7:00 pm The People Upstairs will take the stage. The People Upstairs have quickly become well known across south Florida as the quality local act with a sound audiences immediately connect with: funk, reggae & rock. The Band combines modern rock-funk with a groovy island touch and Latin rhythm to bridge barriers and broaden appeal. The ensemble includes vocals, bass guitar, lead guitar, drum set, sax, trumpet and a plethora of auxiliary percussion.

The People Upstairs – who draw their name from their practice studio, a loft snugly sitting upstairs above a plumbing company’s shop – are in demand all over Florida for their crowd-pleasing live performances. They released their debut album in 2005, Synchrofunkinicty. Their album entitled “For the People, By the People” features all new material and is set to be the best recording of the band’s existence.
Band members are: Casey Buckley: vocals/percussion, Chris Prestia: guitar, Tony Rangel: bass/vocals, Gabe Rangel: drums, Chris O’Brien: saxophone/trumpet. The People Upstairs will perform until 11:00 pm taking a break at 9:00 pm for the fireworks.

Jeff Brown from Clear Channel Media and Entertainment will be on hand to entertain the crowd in between the bands and will be playing patriotic music during the fireworks.

Common Ground Vineyard Church will be at Stars over St. Lucie to present Civil War demonstrations. Pastor Todd and the gang will have a replica Civil War cannon that they will shoot off at 6:00 pm, 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm just in time to begin the fantastic fireworks show.

“Stars over St. Lucie” is a family event. All in Fun Inc. has teamed up with Main Street Fort Pierce to provide children’s activities during “Stars over St. Lucie”. The children’s activities include a Giant Slide and a bounce house or have your face painted by Masquerade Expressions.
