The band pulls their influences from Sublime to Alan Jackson, Dave Matthews to Jimmy Buffet, or Lynyrd Skynyrd to the Zac Brown Band. They keep heads bobbing and toes tapping with their own blend of beach country.
Clemons Road features an extremely talented and charismatic front man, Grammy award winning music producer Cliff brown on lead vocals and guitar. Back by popular demand is the watermelon eating contest that will take place around 7 p.m. and there is even a round this year for the adults.
