Severe wind and rain kept the crowd inside the Low Key Tiki for the 6th annual "Rock on the Dock" Songwriter's Festival Saturday.

Kerri Harvey of "Gary and Kerri" kicked off the day by singing the national anthem.

"I want to thank everyone for coming out on this sloppy, sloppy day," Harvey said. "And Parrot Magazine is here with their golf cart limousine."

Pat McCune opened Saturday’s festival.

Six years ago, Scott Adams, owner of Low Key Tiki, approached Gary and Kerri about a SongFest type event where local artists could perform their original music and that started the ball rolling.

"Every year Pat McCune opens the SongFest and Pat will be opening this year" Harvey said. "Pat is a singer/songwriter that performs with a 12-string guitar. Pat combines original and traditional music with the musical diversity comparable to the likes of Arlo Guthrie, Doc Watson and Jorma Kaukonen all rolled up into one style that is uniquely and truly all his own."

Even though the number of spectators was down, they enjoyed the entertainment provided by such artists as John Reno, Rudy Cox, Kip Lawrence, Jimmy Louis, Native Kid, Maureen and Mick, Brian Markley, Irish John and Gary and Kerri.

"Even though the weather isn't cooperating, it will all work out because it's a lot of good people coming together for a good cause," Gary Harvey said.
