IMMOKALEE, Fla. (February 18, 2019) – Country music singer Jordan Davis will headline the upcoming Seminole Shootout, March 1-3, in Immokalee, Florida, presented by the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

The Louisiana native will take the stage at the John Jimmie Memorial Arena on Saturday, March 2, at 7 p.m.

Davis is currently touring in support of his debut album – Home State. The album has produced two hit singles – “Singles You Up” and “Take It from Me.” “Singles You Up” hit number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in April of 2018.

Writing and playing music was a passion passed down in the Davis household. His uncle, Stan Paul Davis, wrote two Top 5 titles for Tracy Lawrence in the 1990’s – “Today’s Lonely Fool” and “Better Man, Better Off” – while his brother, Jacob, is also a country singer.

Davis will be among a group of musicians scheduled to perform throughout the event weekend. Friday’s performers will be Kompleto (5:30 p.m.) and One Night Rodeo (7 p.m.).

Saturday’s featured acts will include a special performance at noon by Native American Hip Hop artist and motivational speaker Supaman. (https://supamanhiphop.com/). The Hatley Band (4:30 p.m.) and Baja Zero (5:30 p.m.) will precede the Davis show.

On Sunday, the Hatley Band (2:30 p.m.) and Baja Zero (5:30 p.m.) return to perform along with Invanzion 360 (4 p.m.).

In addition to the music entertainment, Seminole Shootout Battle Reenactments will also be spotlighted over the three days. Reenactment events are slated for 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sunday. Friday is reserved for students and admission is free with advanced reservations.

The Seminole Shootout was first performed in the late 1990’s and brings together reenactors in soldier and warrior attire with authentic weapons and tactics, plus pyrotechnics to simulate cannon blasts. They reenact a typical battle from the Second Seminole War, which ranged from 1835 through 1842 and is the longest and costliest Indian conflict in U.S. history.

This is the second year it will be held on the Immokalee Seminole Reservation. All events will be held at the John Jimmie Memorial Arena and the Immokalee Youth Camp, 1195 East Main Street, Immokalee, adjacent to the Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee.

In addition, the event will include alligator wrestling, craft and food vendors, historical and cultural displays, as well as Seminole and soldier camps.

Combo tickets, including the Saturday battle reenactments, concert and all other activities, are $30 and available on line at www.seminoleshootout.com. Tickets may also be purchased for just the reenactments at a cost of $10/$8/$6.

Tickets for the Saturday concert are $25 and tent camping is available for $15 per night on Friday and Saturday. Preferred parking is $5.

The Immokalee Seminole Reservation is located 30 minutes east of Naples via County Road 846 (Immokalee Road) or just over 30 minutes southwest of Fort Myers via State Roads 82 and 29.
