Throwback to Sixties raises funds for land trust
Lana Shuttleworth and Wayne Wood

There was music in the air and flowers everywhere at Wayne Wood and Lana Shuttleworth’s historic Riverside home for the epic gathering of Wayne Woodstock 2.0. There were good vibrations all around at the private party with over 500 people.

The festival was a great way to counter the negativity of world events and political unrest, said Wood, while raising funds for the North Florida Land Trust. The event raised over $8,000 for the nonprofit, which is committed to preserving and protecting the natural heritage of North Florida.

“The contribution will help purchase land for conservation. It was a tremendous event attended by people from all walks,” said Keith Holt, North Florida Land Trust board president. “For one evening Riverside/Avondale had more tie-dyed shirts than anywhere in America!”

Wood missed the original Woodstock in 1969, so he recreated the event in 2016 to raise funds for PB & J (Party, Benefit and Jam), another nonprofit.

“Lana was remorseful at missing the first Wayne Woodstock, and so many people had such a good time that we decided to do it one more time. More musicians, more magicians, more of everything,” said Wood.

Good vibrations surrounded the event, which epitomized The Youngblood’s song lyrics “Come on people now, smile on your brother. Everybody get together, try to love one another right now.”
