9th Annual Meet Me In The Keys set for June 9-12,2016 in Key West
The Castaways are the OFFICIAL fan/friend clubs of Howard Livingston and the Mile Marker 24 Band! We invite you to "Become another Castaway," as Howard sings, by joining one of our clubs and attending the next Meet Me in the Keys (MMITK) event. There are currently three clubs: the Coconut Castaways (based in Des Moines, IA), the Southernmost Coconut Castaways (based in the Florida Keys) and the Coconut Castaways of Southwest Florida (based in the Port Charlotte, FL). Links to all of the clubs can be found by clicking on their logos below.
We began our annual gatherings in 2008. After two cruises, it was decided to bring everyone to the place Howard and his wife Cyndy love the most, the Florida Keys. Meet Me in the Keys was born in 2010 and is now held in Key West every year. The event has grown tremendously and has turned into a 4+ day Trop Rock and fundraising event! We were honored to be nominated for the 2015 Event of the Year in the Trop Rock Music Association awards! Along with great Trop Rock entertainment and daily activities, we have many ways to raise money for KOA Care Camps. This includes a "Hangover Classic Walk," raffles, auctions, and other fun and creative fundraisers. In June 2015, MMITK raised $53,000 for KOA Care Camps...what an amazing weekend!
Registration opens Dec 1, 2015 and will cap off at 300 people. For more information go to www.meetmeinthekeys.org
Here's what Howard Livingston had to say about the Castaways organization..."I am proud to be associated with these great folks and refer to them as a 'Friend Club' as opposed to a fan club. They donate countless hours for all kinds of charitable causes; they are just incredible. Their mission is ‘Serving Community Roles with Caribbean Souls’.”
