South Palm Beach County

Veteran’s Day Weekend Best Bets!

It’s hard to pick out the best music acts for this Veterans’s Day Weekend, but we’ll try to point out some good ones to see this weekend in the South County area.  Friday evening is easy – Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull will be performing at the Mizner Amphitheater (Tickets $50 and up)!  For $20 or so you can see a fantastic Blues act with Michael Schoefield at The Funky Biscuit.  Free acts include a great Rockabilly and Surf band – Slip and the Spinouts – at the Duck Tavern, the Poor Life Decisions – an Americana band – at the Dubliner, and 33 Years playing at The Irishmen!

For Friday night in Delray how about a free concert at the Old School Square with Classic Rock Therapy?  Or he The Flyers at 3rd and 3rd, String Theory at Boston’s, or The Stray Jackets at the Hurricane?   Boynton Beach also gets into the mix with Stall 4 at BB’s Grill, and Konnected at Elmo’s.

SATURDAY morning starts off with Soudproof at the Delray Green Market, then it’s Uproot Hootenanny at Boston’s in the afternoon, dinnertime with Bill and Gloria Hartmann at Crane’s, and finally the Fiesta Bobs at the Bull Bar, 56 Ace at Johnny Brown’s , Fleetwood Max tribute band at Old School Square for $25, Magic Bus at the Blue Anchor, and finally Ocean Disco at Dada!

In Boynton you can see Burnt Biscuit at the Banana Boat, Trajae Blue at Streb’s, and Erik O’Neil and Company at The Fish Depot.  And we hear they’re going to have Live Music at the Boynton Beach Art Walk!

Saturday night the place to be in Boca is The Funky Biscuit to see Big Sam’s Funky Nation for $25 or so after a free Salute to Veterans by the Florida Wind Symphony Salute to Veterans at Mizner Park!

Slip and The Spinouts


Tribute Bands!

Palm Beach County must be the Tribute Band Capital – maybe because the Boomers and Snowbirds love them?  It all started with Elvis impersonators in the mid 50’s, but now they’re all over the place.  This weekend is no exception with Bostons on the Beach hosting Orange Sunshine, a 60’s tribute band playing at Boston’s on Friday and Crazy Fingers, a wonderful Grateful Dead tribute band on Sunday evening, and the Boca Black Box bringing in The Long Run, a fantastic Eagles tribute band on Saturday!  If you’re out on Monday, you can also catch a genuine Elvis impersonator in Scott Ringerson at Johnny Brown’s and George Orr and the Hot Rod Band – a Rod Stewart act there on Tuesday.  Go check them out!


A Pirate Fest in Boynton!

Live Music all day Saturday and Sunday makes this event special!  You’ll enjoy many out of town Celtic/Irish/Folk bands along with local favorites like Rogue Theory, Spred the Dub, and the Fireside Prophets too!  Of course there’s pirate food to eat, vendors, magicians, comics, and other activities for all ages.  Costumes are encouraged!


A Big Night in Boca!

The Days Between

Grateful Dead fans know that August 1 to August 9 is known as “The Days Between” – since Jerry Garcia was born on August 1 and died August 9.  This year’s South County celebrations of Jerry’s life starts on Friday with Unlimited Devotion playing for the first time at the Arts Garage in Delray!  Then on Sunday it’s Crazy Fingers at Bostons, and Tuesday, August 1 at The Funky Biscuit joined by Ben Sparaco.  Watch this space for more shows coming up!

Crazy Fingers


Mark Telesca in the News!

If playing the blues means authentically channeling one’s trials and tribulations through music, then the next CD by Brooklyn-born, Boynton Beach-based singer, bassist and guitarist Mark Telesca should be a masterpiece. . . . .
