“Way down south, in the dappled shade of the tangled mangroves on the edge of the Ten Thousand Islands, there dwells a living legend — the Legend of the fabled Florida Fiddler. And who is the Florida Fiddler? Why, he is the Forrest Gump of the Everglades, the Johnny Appleseed of Big Cypress, the “everyman” renegade player-performer of that alter-ego, confounded, red-headed step-child of the instrument called a “violin” — otherwise known as THE FIDDLE! Yessuh. It was the Florida Fiddler who made the Devil Come Down to Georgia, who put the “blue” in bluegrass, the “orange” in the Orange Blossom Special, the “saw” in sawgrass, and the “sigh” in cypress.
So raise the brim of your straw hat, chew on a hayseed, and put your feet up while you embark on a magical journey from the banks of the Old Suwanee to the rollicking Tropic of Margaritaville. Now don’t be shy, folks! Ain’t nothing shy about the Florida Fiddler. Join right in. Laugh, sing, and clap along with music, culture, and history from the Land of the Walking Tree!”
– Nancy R. Koerner

My friend Captn Jac sailed down to SW Florida from Indiana in 2013 and we met at a WGCU Radio interview.
I could tell right away he was a Trop Rock dreamer looking to live the life Jimmy Buffett sings about! The names of his songs – “Livin On the Hard” “My Bahama Mama” “The Island of My Dreams” and “On Marigot Bay” – all reflected visions of sun, sand, and sub-tropical Florida paradise.
Hey! My kind of guy! I’ve been living it for so long i almost took things for granted and forgot how wonderful it is living down here on Marco Island, Florida!
So we recorded on WGCU together, and we ran aground together on my sailboat “Blue Water” a couple times. I invited him on quite a few gigs and he’s recorded my steel pan and fiddle on a few his island style, Caribbean themed projects… I’ve gotta say, the Captn’s become quite the buddy!
So I would like to share the news of his upcoming CD called “Adventures In Paradise” which is due to be released this coming October 1st 2016. Swing on over to his website www.CaptJac.com and give him a hardy “Ahoy!” from J.Robert!
Thanks to Nancy Koerner of junglepixiebelize.com and Cori Chase for the new CD artwork.
Thanks to the people on the Graphics team and my studio buddies, the last song for the new album.”ADVENTURES IN PARADISE” is written and recorded. At the present time,
it is in the hands of Bud Snyder at Spirit Ranch Studios for final mix down. Two videos are currently in the planning stages as well. Stay tuned for more details.
