850 Music & Entertainment

Exploring Entertainment in Florida's 850 & Beyond

Mission Statement

850ME stands for 850 Music & Entertainment.

We are based in the panhandle of Florida – getting the 850 part of our name from the local area code pre-fix.

The site aims to shine a light on local, regional, and national artists.  2015 celebrates our fifth year – and we are endlessly grateful for everyone we’ve met along the way.

Tips about bands, shows, events, or anything else you think we should know about are always appreciated – 850MusicEntertainment@gmail.com.  We are always open to considering guest contributors or press releases to be shared with our readership.

We also have a very active Facebook page if you are looking for more information on area events.

Thanks for visiting!

    Thanks…. how did you come up with this great idea? What is your background? Both Pensacola and FWB need coverage and I will send info as I get it. Keep up the great work.
