Culture, live entertainment, fine art and fine dining are abundant in the Hilton Head / Bluffton area. And there is nothing quite as energizing as seeing live music. There is something truly magical about the energy in a room filled with great music and an appreciative audience.
Living in Bluffton we are lucky to have one of the best venues to see live bands. The Roasting Room, which is directly above the Corner Perk on May River Rd in Bluffton. The Roasting Room’s mission is to showcase bands performing original music, they steer away from cover bands and present musicians who are truly gifted at their craft. The room is an intimate setting with a capacity of 85 audience members. This provides an experience that is rare. And The Roasting Room is able to steadily book top notch talent.
I sat down for a conversation with Jordan of The Roasting Room. Jordan books the entertainment and manages the production of all the live performances. We discussed the history of The Roasting Room and the upcoming acts over the next 2 months.
Upcoming shows includes The Brevet, an indie rock band performing on January 30th. This performance will actually be acoustic and I for one am looking forward to it. I saw The Brevet last time they came to the roasting room and I was blown away by their performance.
The following day January 31st the front man for The Whigs, Parker Gispert will be performing.
On February 19th Jimbo Mathis of Squirrel Nut Zippers will be performing. Another highlight will be Dar Williams appearing at The Roasting Room on Saturday March 14th.
This is an abbreviated list of upcoming shows at The Roasting Room. Check out their website to see the full lineup. If you are unfamiliar with these acts, you can see what genre they perform in and a link to a video is available. Their website makes it very easy to purchase tickets. My favorite aspect is that all tickets are held in Will Call so all you need to do is show up and give them your name and you’re admitted.
Buying a home is not just about buying a house, you are buying a lifestyle. It is not just the home but the community that you will be a part of. In the Hilton Head / Bluffton area we have a wonderful lifestyle with lots of culture, fine art, entertainment and fine dining.
So when you were thinking of buying a home in the Hilton Head / Bluffton area, you are likely to be very pleased with the culture and activities we have to offer. It is also very easy to get involved in your favorite art when you live in Hilton Head or Bluffton.

Working as a realtor in Hilton Head and Bluffton area is certainly rewarding. I’ve noticed so many of my real estate clients are pet lovers and Bluffton & Hilton Head are very pet friendly. There are many restaurants you can bring your dogs to and there are several dog runs in the area. The Hilton Head beaches have specific times of the day in year where dogs are welcome to roam around the shore.
It has been my pleasure to help the Hilton Head Humane Association as I can by creating these videos to showcase a pet of the week. Many other pets feature have been adopted And I delight in finding homes for people and pets.
If you’d like to give one of these adorable cats at home please come by the Hilton Head Humane Association in Okatie. There are many cats and kittens waiting for a new home and each one is precious and lovable.
Hello we are at the Hilton Head Humane Association in Okatie. I am here with Carol and we are going to talk about all the cats we have here today.
Well, this room can accommodate 24 cats. we have 24 cat cages. And we have a separate room for our younger kittens. They are all different ages and different vaccination schedules. I
n this room, there all on the same vaccination schedule and they can come out and play with each other or just hang out if they don’t want to play with each other.
So that is Kahil, very friendly, a little over a year old. Loves attention as you can see. We had him out in the office this morning and he was assisting with some Facebook posting I was doing. Good job !
High atop our cabinet is Pandita. Pandita is about 6 years old and whenever she is out of her cat cage she loves to be high up and just kind of survey what’s going on in the room. She’s just hanging out up there.
So I think that is Theodore. Theodore is actually still a kitten. He weighs 15 pounds and he is 9 months old. He’s handsome. He is very handsome. He came in with two siblings Who look very similar to him.
She is the same age. She weighs 11 pounds. Alvina, beautiful face.
Barley is a male. He is about 4 years old. He weighs 8 pounds.
Here are a few links to pets we have featured in the past:

Fez is curretnly with the Hilton Head Humane Association at the Okatie Campus, which is located at 10 Pritcher Point Drive off of 170.
There are many adorable cats and dogs waiting for a home. Luckily many of the pets I have featured over the last few months have been adopted by local loving families. But every week there are new pets who need love, caring and a happy home!
Over the months we have met Ozzy , Nora, King, and all have been adopted but there is one dog that is still in need of a home. Petunia is still with the Hilton Head Humane and is currently at the Hilton Head location at 10 Humane Way.
“Hello we are here with Fez and Katie of Hilton Head Humane Association and I am Pamela Brown with eXp Realty. Today we have this adorable little kitty. Hi Sweetie, come say hi. So what can you tell me about her? Clearly she likes snacks.”
” He does. Oh! He! He is about 5 months old and he has been with us since August.”
” I think all cats are female.”
” I think all cats are female and all dogs are male.”
” I think the same thing! “
“But he is very playful very loving. Oh so cute! Very photogenic.”
” Very photogenic, he is a little cutie pie. Whatcha doing buddy? Aren’t you sweet? He is really soft too.”
” He is very soft and he has a cute little black dot on his nose. He is just adorable.”
” Do you think he is going to get much bigger? He is already at five months so, maybe just a little bit?”
” Yeah, he’ll get a little bigger. What a sweetie pie.”
” So if you are looking for a cat, this cat is looking for you. Please come by the Okatie Campus and meet little Fez. Thank you!”
On the second Saturday of December, Bluffton hosts our annual Christmas Parade which has been a town tradition since 1971! It is known as the most eccentric of Christmas parades and that is not surprising considering the colorful character of our dear town of Bluffton, what with our golf-cart lifestyle and abundant art culture.
I’ve heard it said that Blufftonians are either watching the parade or in the parade. This year, I was in the parade and marched with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. Not my first parade; I was once in the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade but the Bluffton parade, I find to be much more fun!
For one thing Bluffton in December is MUCH warmer than New York City in March and what is most charming about our small town parade is the fun of passing out candy to the kids in our town.
Keeping with the tradition of eccentricity, one participant delivered candy atop a toilet plunger decorated as a scepter. It did look brand new, so no worries about cleanliness there.
The parade route is quite long, about 2+ miles, so there are many locations to watch from and most people can bring a chair or a golf cart and relax to watch the festivities as the march begins at 10:00 am. And yet I think some in the audience really enjoy to excitement and anticipation by being in a large crowd at the center of town on May River Road and Promenade
Where the crowds spread out though, it is much easier to get some candy. Some marchers toss the candy and some place it in hand. My personal technique is the latter as I like to have an interaction with the kids and adults alike.
Below are more photographs of the fun we had. If you missed it this year, be sure to put it on your calendar for next year!
Would you like to know what is going on in the Real Estate Market in th Hilton Head and Bluffton area? In the last 30 days we have closed 250 homes and villas. And there are currently about 700 homes and villas under contract. In the last year the median sales price has increased by 3.5% and the inventory has dropped by about 9.6%. That is a year over year figure.
Currently we are at at 4.2 months worth of inventory and that is a decrease from last month which was a 4.7 months worth of inventory. But we are still in a fairly well balanced market. It is tipping to the seller side but we are still well balanced. Currently we have over 1500+ homes and villas for sale in the market. So, we are still good!
If you would like have more information or want to know a specific thing about a particular area, I’d be happy to run so data for you! Just give me a call at 917-449-3461.
These figures I quote in the video are for a combined market of both Hilton Head Island and Bluffton SC. When analyzed separately the number are quite different. For example, say you live in Hilton Head Plantation and are curious about how the homes are selling in this community alone. Or in Bluffton we have gated golf communities such as Hampton Hall and ungated public golf communities like Pinecrest. The home prices and the months of inventory will vary greatly. All these figures would be quite different from what is shared in the above video.
Luckily I am able to quickly analyse data, so if you’re curious about sales figures in your community or would like to know the value of your Hilton Head or Bluffton home, I would be delighted to share that info with you!
I am Pamela Brown with eXp Realty
Thank you very much!
