Marilyn "Jimmie" Reams from Jacksonville, FL
Music House Mom

It all started 9 years ago after the death of her son who was a musician. After his death, Marilyn opened her home up to local musicians on Saturday nights to enjoy a good home cooked meal, say grace, and jam! Well to this day the "Music House" continues and she is known as the "Music House Mom" all over town. In honor of her 92nd birthday we will surprise her with a concert at Mudville Grill. Local musicians will be coming to enjoy a buffet together and each will be performing a song in her honor and tell her what the "Music House" has meant to them. It will give them all an opportunity to show their gratitude and love to her in how she and her home has helped them all throughout the last 9 years. It will be a day of great music, love an appreciation to a beautiful lady......

Update:  Dream fulfilled on January 29, 2017 thanks to generous donors and an outpour of local support. Photos may be viewed at
