The Legacy Business League, Memorial, and Unfazed Show & Band have come together to present “Heroes on the Frontline Concert – A Day of Appreciation” on March 27, 2021, from 11 AM-5 PM to serve frontline workers with a fun day off. Taking place at Harrah’s Gulf Coast Great Lawn (280 Beach Blvd. Biloxi, MS 39530). March marks the one-year anniversary of the first COVID-19 case discovered in South Mississippi. This event will highlight the tenacity of local frontline workers through a community celebration of hope and healing.
Carlos Bell, Chair of the event, served as a United States Army Veteran Combat Engineer on the frontline in Iraq. He says, “I personally know what it is like to put my life on the line to protect my family, friends, and fellow Americans and to have the backing of the community. It is what kept me going. I’m honored to be a part of recognizing the courageous healthcare workers and frontline staff that carried us through the last year. These dedicated citizens have fearlessly carried the heavy weight of the health of our local community on their shoulders for an entire year. Now it’s time we celebrate them.”
The event will feature entertainment from local bands: Unfazed Show & Band, Karate Kids, and Rhythm & Rain. Delicious meals will be available from a variety of local food trucks, and socially-distanced “pods” are available for healthcare workers. Keith Brumfield, member of Unfazed Show & Band, was inspired by frontline workers and knew he had to act. Brumfield says, “I work in the healthcare industry myself. I have had a chance to see firsthand what my colleagues have endured in this year. I want to celebrate that we made it. Yes, it was hard. Yes, it was tough. But we made it. And we want to remember those that we lost along the way.”
