Can Playing Music Help Your Brain?
Here’s a little article at INC. about the the benefits of playing music: “The Benefits of Playing Music Help Your Brain More Than Any Other Activity“. We’re wondering if our local musicians would agree!
A New Live Music Joint in Delray!
Delray Beach just got a top of the line Live Music venue called the Tin Roof. They’ve got tasty food, Live Music every night, two bars, two stages and a beautiful patio right on Atlantic Avenue! Right now they’ve got a mixture of local talent and out of town up and coming bands.
They’ve got a lot of competition. There’s a ton of Live Music spots on Atlantic Avenue – our last count had 19 of them between Swinton Avenue and the ocean! Check out our Delray page to see a list of them. Let us know what you think of this place!

Pink Floyd Tributes in South County!
Is Pink Floyd near the top of your list of best Rock bands in history? Then you might be interested in two tribute shows coming up in South County. On Saturday night October 13, FLOYD – A Tribute will be performing in Mizner Park, and lawn tickets are only twenty bucks! This 10-member band brings an impressive light show, multiple laser displays, and a video wall with them, and their shows usually sell out.
Then keep an eye out for Jerry Leeman’s “Dark Side of the Medizen” show (a Big Medizen production) coming up on November 1 at The Venu in Boynton! Big Medizen is known for putting on elaborate, epic sell-out shows including The Last Waltz and Woodstock anniversary performances, and possibly a “Med Zeppelin” show in the works!
