Save Mississippi Project & Shut It Down Tour 

The Save MS Project  -   brings 10 bands together from N. MS to the Coast. Utilizing the best studios and fans together we'll make history.

The Save Mississippi Project started about 3 months ago when the Mississippi Music Foundation achieved one of its earlier goals of producing a radio station to bring Mississippi musicians to a larger fan base.  Through these interviews one central theme kept rising to the top of every interview and that was a perception that artists cannot "make it" in Mississippi. Soon after one of our bands asked the Foundation to manage them.  As we thought about what was necessary to have a fighting chance at success, we knew that we could have a profound impact on a large number of artists.   This project brings together 10 artists/bands in a wide variety  of genres as we follow them for 3 months of touring, recording and filming a rockumentary all while producing an collaborative album.

did u see that motorcycle?

The Shut It Down Campaign is the highlight of the Save Mississippi Project.  Meeting and leaving at the Landers Center in Southaven, MS on September 13th, our first destination on the historic Music Highway (61) stops in the Clarksdale area.  The Foundation and our bands will then perform a series of live flash performances in small towns along the Music Highway, while "flooding" these areas with information about Highway Safety and Motorcycle Awareness. 

Have you ever wanted to take part in a flash mob, but didn't want to learn the moves?  Here's your chance.  Towns are bidding to become host cities Olympic style!  Pick your poison, pick your music.  From folk to blues to rock and rhythm and blues bands will fill up the highway with music.  Taste local cuisine, shop local vendors and meet people from around the state.

u see that motorcycle? 

Our second destination brings us to the Vicksburg area at 3 PM and finishing up in Biloxi at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum at 8 PM where we will be able to relax and enjoy music throughout the evening.  After a great nights sleep, enjoy the coast area until we reach our final destination of the Jackson area at 3 PM on September 14th.

Whether you choose to join us for the whole trip or just a small leg of the tour, make sure you are a part of the "flash flood" of music, food and definitely fun.  Join the crusade.  Why?  Almost 80% of people surveyed don't think highway safety is important while over a quarter of today's accidents involve texting or otherwise impaired driving.  Not including 7 year olds, vehicular deaths are the leading cause of death for people ages 3-34.  We will flood communities with literature stating the true statistics related to highway accidents raising awareness and promoting safety for motorcycles and vehicles alike. 

AND LOOK OUT FOR MOTORCYCLES.

Get the car ready and shine the chrome on that Hog, because we are going for a ride.

Singing original music as a full time touring band is very expensive and the pay is often very little.  This makes most bands give up and stick to cover music because it pays the bills.  This is good for now, but it makes the future of Mississippi music look bleak.  We aim to follow in the tradition of Mississippi musical greats such as Robert Johnson, Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke as well contemporary artists like Haley Williams of Paramore.  

We truly believe we will be showcasing 10 of the hottest groups in Mississippi for the world to see!  ARE YOU READY FOR THE LINE UP? Click the Link below......
