The annual Northview High School FFA Alumni Blue Jacket Jamboree will be held this Saturday, March 8, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. in the school’s football stadium.

The day’s entertainment includes Chloe Channell from 2:30 p.m. until 4 p.m. and The Dusty Sanderson Band from noon until 1:30 p.m.

America fell in love with Chloe Channell, of Pace, Fla., last fall on NBC’s America’s Got Talent when she sang the Carrie Underwood cover song “All-American Girl” and made it all the way to quarterfinals at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. She has performed with the Sawmill Band at the Farmer’s Opry in Chumuckla, Fla., since she was 7 and has opened for country stars like Tracy Bird, Rodney Adkins, Little Big Town and Craig Morgan. This past Christmas, she was on stage with Billy Dean in the Kenny Rogers Production of “The Toy Shoppe” in Branson, Mo.

Pensacola native Dusty Sanderson has been playing guitar since he was 10 years old and singing on stage since he turned 14. He has written more than 75 songs and recently recorded his first four song album at Quad Studios in Nashville with Grammy nominated producer Dave Moody on the Lamon Records label. His first music video for the title track “Chuggin’ Along” was shot in January in McDavid.

The day’s events at the Blue Jacket Jamboree include a craft show, car show, activities and games for the kids and plenty of great food.

Admission for the entire day and all entertainment is $5 for adults, and $2 for ages 12 and under. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Northview High School FFA and FFA Scholarship Fund.

The Blue Jacket Jamboree is sponsored in part by Hill-Kelly Dodge, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, Escambia Florida Farm Bureau and NorthEscambia.com.
