“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” — Plato
#Soooboca loves live music anytime of the year and summer is the perfect time when bars and music venues may be a little less crowded to drop into for some live music around Boca Raton, Delray Beach and South Florida.
Our family has run the gamut with our love of live music including concerts back in the day at the Hollywood Sportatorium and Miami Stadium to Revolution and Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale to a first date to see Charlie Daniels play at Crystal Lake Country Club on the golf course in Deerfield Beach.
We have spent time at venues in the Palm Beaches including Grandview Public Market in West Palm Beach, Bamboo Room in Lake Worth and Banana Boat in Boynton Beach and of course Coral Sky Amphitheater at the South Florida Fairgrounds.
Lets face it…cool venues, cool drinks and cool bands are a great way to balance out our hot and steamy summers especially after a day at one of our local beaches!
Boca Raton Summer Concert Series
It is that time of year when school is out, summer is in full bloom and music is in abundance at Mizner Park Amphitheater in Downtown Boca. There are some great tribute bands playing for free, ticketed concerts, movies and fun events. This month’s highlights include “Under the Boardwalk Game Night,” a 50th Woodstock Anniversary with Peace of Woodstock concert and movie night screening of Bohemian Rhapsody. Just remember to check with the city directly for dates, times and prices.
Live Music Is All Around Us
Our friend Rob Concierge has put together a great website for live music in South Florida that you need to buzz by at Weekend Broward Palm Beach. He is a wealth of knowledge about the local musical scene so I asked him how we can support local bands.
“The talent pool is fabulous here in South Florida and many of these hard working musicians are found via word of mouth, which is great, as they have fans that do follow them. Another great way to support these bands is to always share the latest concert or performance date on your social media including tagging the band and the venue so even more people discover these talented musicians!”
No matter what kind of music you love there is a variety of music all over our area in bars, restaurants, amphitheaters, theaters and casinos.
If you are craving a little night music check out some of the places we have listed below and remember…you just never know… someone you are listening to today at one of the many open mic nights and jam sessions held weekly around our cities may very well be the next Ariana!
