Today veterans and friends are jamming out at a mini steel guitar concert hosted by the Arthur McMasters Memorial VFW Post 4526 in Gulfport.
The concert that kicked off at 3 p.m. is celebrating Corky Tittle, a veteran passionate about playing the drums. The concert is free of admission and welcomes people to enjoy good music and food.
Musicians from Nashville, Tennessee made their way to the Gulf Coast to help ring in Tittle’s 77th birthday which will be tomorrow. VFW Post 4526 Member Bill Stafford said, “This is an example of friendship. This man thinks so much of Corky he drove all the way down and he’s not getting paid one red nickel to help his friend celebrate his birthday.”
Corky said, “It’s just hard to explain being with all these great people to celebrate my birthday. It just knocks me out.”
Stafford says the concert has no end time. He says they will be jamming out well into the night.
