Fun Facts: After the Hurricane, the Beatles Play On in Jacksonville.

Beatles in Jacksonville 1964


Jacksonville is one of the few cities on the Eastern coast that have been largely spared from the wrath of major hurricanes. However, in 1964 the big one hit. Hurricane Dora caused severe damage, and no part of the city was spared.   But, the very next day, on September 11, 1964, over 20,000 fans packed the Gator Bowl (now Everbank Field),  to see the Beatles. The lads from Liverpool did not disappoint.  They endured harsh winds, but they were undeterred, and so were the screaming fans.  (It is rumored that the winds were blowing so hard that Ringo Starr's drum set had to be nailed down to the stage).

"You guys really know the market around here. I had my house listed for a year with another realtor. You guys came along and sold it in two weeks! What a relief, both financial and emotional. You literally saved the day."
