THE IKO- UNDERGROUND HOSTS 3 HOURS OF PEACE, LOVE & MUSIC 10/12/14 COCONUT GROVE FL.

The Barnacle in Coconut Grove and the Iko Underground presents:
Graham Wood Drout’s
THREE HOURS OF LOVE, PEACE AND MUSIC
Sunday October 12- Gates open at 5pm. Hosted by Graham Wood Drout and IKO-IKO $10.00 cover goes to the Barnacle Society to preserve the magic of Coconut Grove.

I had a very exciting meeting with the event people at the Historic Barnacle in Coconut Grove on Friday.I was looking for a venue to host a genuine Peacock Park 1967 Flower Child Love In. They were very into the idea and gave me the go ahead to make it happen. One of the rangers told me, kind of sheepishly,that the Miami New Times had voted (much to their dismay) the Barnacle the best place in Miami to be high.” We’re getting high on all the good vibes,groovy music and the beautiful view of the bay. Sunday October 12 Gates will open at 5pm. Bring a dinner basket with your favorite bottle of wine and enjoy Three Hours of Peace, love and Music in the very heart of old Coconut Grove.
Keep up with our progress on the new and improved www.iko-iko.com Peace:-)

Johnny Depp Rock Star? Fat Chance!

On October 17, 1981 IKO-IKO’s Graham Wood Drout and Good Rockin’ Johnny Wenzel (known as the Fat Chance Blues Band) took the first place trophy in the K102 FM ‘Home grown Rock Festival’ and battle of the bands at the Hollywood Sportatorium beating out Johnny Depp’s band ‘The Kids’ (who came in second), thus ending Depp’s career as a rock star and forcing him to find work elsewhere. You’re welcome!
