Ms. Sylvia Gott is a Tybee music icon. She’s a peppy 101 years young and still rocks a nightly gig at Doc’s Bar here on the island. Yes, our lovely lady is known world wide for her talents as a percussionist. Drums, castanets, tambourines…you name it. We love to watch her play!

Recently, Ms. Sylvia had a fall and was hospitalized for a cracked pelvis. She’s recovering and is very eager to get back to her music! The community has been cheering on her full recovery and to help with that, she needs a lift in her home to help her get from her first to her second floor. There have been fund raisers island wide, thanks to the Tybee Arts Association and other groups, to help raise the $10,000 for the lift.
You can join Tybee in raising the funds to help Ms. Sylvia get her lift this Saturday, August 28th, from 5 to 9 p.m. at Doc’s Bar! There will be great food and great music, so please come! Wear your turbine and bring your maracas to shake in honor of the fabulous Ms. Sylvia!!
There will be buckets for your donations at Doc’s as well as many other locations around the island. If you aren’t able to make it to Tybee, you can head on over to the Tybee Arts Association website and make a donation through Paypal! Please help us help our beloved music legend!
We send our very best to Ms. Sylvia and wish her a full and speedy recovery!!
