We have another big music weekend coming up starting Friday, October 4th, with Sounds on Center, the Going Coastal Concert and the start of the Jazz Festival.
The Sounds on Center Concert features Ben Prestage, the one man band. This blues performer plays up to 8 roots instruments at a time. The Sounds on Center Concert is a free event that takes place on the two blocks of Center Street down by the Palace Saloon. As Pete used to say… Free stuff is good! After Sounds on Center Ben will be playing at the Dog Star Tavern until the wee hours.
The Going Coastal Concert is the second in the series. They had so much fun at the first one they just had to do it again! The concert will be held on Saturday in Central Park, just a few blocks from the Addison. The headliner act is The Lee Boys with support from the Parkerurban Band and Spred The Dub.
All of this leads up to the Amelia Island Jazz Festival that starts on Sunday the 6th. The series includes the Dixieland Jazz Brunch, a Latin Jazz concert, the Royal Crown Revue and their headliner Mindi Abair. Check out their schedule as they have lots of great music all week long!
