Live Music

11-1pm – Xaris Waltman is a seventeen-year-old, singer-songwriter local to Gulf Breeze, Florida. She has been singing since before she could talk, and picked up a guitar for the first time at age 8. Her first solo gig was in 8th grade. Inspired by the folk revolution of the 1960s, when she isn’t playing original music, she covers artists like; Bob Dylan, Donavan, Cat Stevens. Her dream is to be able to travel and spread love, through music, everywhere she goes.

1:30-5pm – Partial Willie is the musical trio of Sugarcane Jane, Grayson Capps, and Corky Hughes of Willie Sugarcapps.

Birthed from a series of casual Southern Alabama songwriter-in-the-round jam sessions, Willie Sugarcapps is an organic outgrowth of the chemistry between five distinct musicians. Within these sessions, among the potluck dishes served and a stage built to resemble a back porch, a connection brewed between Kimbrough, Crawford, Lee, Capps, and Hughes. Individually, these musicians have written, recorded, and toured throughout the US, with the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Emmylou Harris, Neil Young, Kate Campbell, Dwight Yoakam, and Steve Winwood, to name a few. The collaboration of such songwriting expertise inspired a repertoire of material that became their 2013 self-titled debut album, which was awarded “Americana Album Of The Year” by the Independent Music Association. Willie Sugarcapps went on to build a solid following and performed on such lauded programs as Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, NPR’s Mountain Stage and Music City Roots.

“Willie Sugarcapps is a breath of fresh air in a world that could use a little more positive energy,” explains Savana Lee. “We sing about our own personal experiences of life on the road, love, and family…things that we care about and want to share with others.  It’s not just about the music, but leaving the world with something meaningful.”

Since 1981, Pensacola Habitat for Humanity has been working to build not just homes – Pensacola Habitat is building community – one home, one block, one neighborhood at a time.

Proceeds from the event will be used to further Pensacola Habitat for Humanity’s mission of building homes, community, and hope. Our three and four bedroom energy efficient homes are built with the help of teams of construction volunteers in neighborhoods throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa counties and sold to qualifying homebuyers with a zero percent interest loan. We have built over 1,300 such homes here in our community. And recently, Pensacola Habitat has expanded its work to include helping neighborhoods to organize and improve existing homes and neighborhoods through neighborhood revitalization efforts.

Your support of Pensacola Hot Wheels Food Truck Festival is not only a fun way to spend a Saturday—it is an investment in local families and a healthier, more sustainable community.
