Boca Best Bets for Veteran’s Day Weekend!

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 Boca.  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!

Saturday night the place to be 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.

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!
