A very special day for Ocala born and bread rockers, A Day to Remember was presented with the keys to the city by Mayor Kent Guinn last Saturday just before performing a full set in front of a well represented local crowd.
Mayor Guinn came equipped with the puns boasting, “It’s a real honor, I’m so proud of these young men and they’ve made Ocala proud. I’m proud to have them here tonight. Tonight is truly a day to remember in Ocala.”
Lead vocalist Jeremy McKinnon couldn’t be more thankful of Ocala for shaping him and the band into what they are today. “We used to play in our parents’ garages and we’d get the cops called on us all the time because we were making too much noise. Those cops are here somewhere, thanks for letting us keep playing … If you live here or if you’re from here, support local music. That’s the only reason this band exists,” McKinnon explained.
Check out the 19 song set list below. They fittingly threw in the song “City of Ocala”, the first time they’ve played it live since 2015.
