The venue. Market2Go is moving! Starting Thursday, February 14, Market2Go order pickups will be at the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau at 222 South Main Street. They’re not moving far — the SCVB is on South Main Street, diagonally across from Queensborough Bank.
Hours will remain the same with order pick up between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. every Thursday.
Sugar Magnolia Bakery has been the operations base for Market2Go since the very beginning. The owners past and present have been very generous and gracious through every kind of transition of the building. They are grateful to Steve Jones for helping them get started, Barry Turner for letting them use the building even when the business was closed, and especially to Caroline Joyner and the current management team for making room for them — and making them feel welcome — even as they worked around the market to do renovations and open their beautiful new restaurant.
At their new location at the SCVB, they will have a dedicated cooler and freezer to improve efficiency, food safety and customer service. They also expect that the generous parking area will make order pickup more convenient for the customers.
The cost structure. They are eliminating the annual membership fee and in its place — because they have to maintain support for the market — they’re instituting a surcharge of 7% on each order.
Their analysis, as well as comments from vendors and would-be customers, suggest that their annual membership fee of $25 remains a barrier to market participation for some customers, especially for customers at lower incomes. At the same time, they know they need to maintain their income to cover market expenses. They think that this new structure will allow them to do both — to bring in new customers to the market and also produce income to keep the market going.
Effective immediately, market membership fees will no longer be charged — anyone can make purchases on the market, simply by signing up. They will contact customers who have paid a membership fee recently, to offer some compensation alternatives.
Beginning March 1, your Market2Go orders will include a 7% market-support fee to maintain income for Market2Go.

This Friday, February 1st, Bird Dog Jubilee will be jamming live at Statesboro’s very own The Blue Room.
Bird Dog Jubilee is a rock-n-roll collection of instrumentalists that blur the lines between structured songs and improvisational jams. While their roots run deep in Atlanta, their act is building up steam throughout Southeastern venues and festivals. Their chutzpah is epitomized by their ability to seamlessly meld tunes while encouraging impromptu collaborations with fellow musicians live on stage.
Each member has an eclectic set of influences in which they draw inspiration from, but they can always agree on The Band, Phish, or My Morning Jacket while on the road. The synergy of each member’s experiences culminate live on stage providing a unique take each time you attend a performance.
Fresh off recording their debut 3-song EP at Prana Studios just outside the Atlanta City Limits, BDJ is ready to let it ring out and jam with you at their next show. Whether they are blending old ballads, or hashing out new grooves, this is act is always a sight to see at their crux.
They will release their best live tracks of 2018 periodically starting with Tabby’s Playhouse > Duct Tape James. This medley encapsulates BDJ’s new found sound with technical licks accompanied by sweet melodies. Check out the new tunes on Spotify, iTunes, and all streaming platforms.
You gotta get up to get down and they are looking forward to seeing you there. BDJ abides.
Tickets are one sale now and the doors open at 8PM, so be sure to kick off your weekend with a night of great music here in beautiful Statesboro.
To hear some music from the band, check out their Spotify debut!

Georgia Southern’s Performing Arts Center is the Next Stop on the Search for the Holy Grail With Monty Python’s Spamalot
Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Music, Monty Python’s Spamalot brings its infamous search for the Holy Grail to The Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are on sale now and going fast!
This outrageous musical comedy is lovingly ripped off from the 1975 film classic, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest to find the missing mythical Holy Grail. All of your favorite gags from the film find new life on stage, including flying cows, killer rabbits, and taunting Frenchmen. With a book by Monty Python comedy troupe alum Eric Idle and music and lyrics by the Grammy Award-winning team of Idle and John Du Prez, this hilarious Broadway show turns the genre on its head and features familiar show-stopping musical numbers, “He Is Not Dead Yet,” “Find Your Grail,” and “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.”
Says Performing Arts Center Director Stacie McDaniel, “Everyone remembers their first experience laughing at Monty Python. The zany, outrageous comedy and fun musical numbers will make it a great time for all audiences. We can’t wait!”
Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for youth 17 and under, and are on sale now at the Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern Box Office. Discounts are available for Georgia Southern students and faculty/staff. Group rates for groups of 10 or more are also available.

The Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern kicks off the second half of their 2018-2019 Main Stage Season with a performance by Jon Lehrer and Dancers on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are on sale now at the PAC Box Office.
Jon Lehrer and Dancers have toured extensively both nationally and internationally, and now they bring their artistry here to Statesboro!
With creativity, athleticism, and the ability to make contemporary, modern, and jazz dance accessible to all audiences, Jon Lehrer and Dancers have made quite a name for themselves in the dance and theatre world. Striking the elusive balance between art and entertainment, Lehrer and Dancers showcases unique choreography and a fun, distinctive style which fuses jazz and modern dance. Featuring some of the genre’s most athletic professional dancers, Lehrer’s choreography focuses on three main elements of movement: circularity, three-dimensionality, and momentum, coming together to create a true spectacle onstage which can be enjoyed by dance experts and novices alike; this is truly a dance show for all with colorful costuming, exciting music, and inventive movement.
This performance is an exciting opportunity for the community. Performing Arts Center Director Stacie McDaniel explains, “I think audiences often have the misconception that contemporary dance is going to be hard to follow, or too out there, or that they won’t be able to appreciate or understand it without a dance background. Jon Lehrer breaks all of those misconceptions down, giving an accessible, colorful performance that is both entertaining and full of artistic merit.”
Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for youth 17 and under, and are on sale now at the Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern Box Office. Discounts are available for Georgia Southern students and faculty/staff. Group rates for groups of 10 or more are also available. Visit the Box Office in person Monday-Friday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, or purchase tickets over the phone at 912-478-7999 or online atwww.georgiasouthern.edu/pac.
