#MeetMeAtTheHub

When our Fort Lauderdale Beach business community wished to give our local residents and area visitors an opportunity to gather together and kick off the weekend, with live music by the sand, we had high hopes it would be well received.
Never did we envision what it has become.

The success of this little idea over breakfast with our Chamber’s Beach Council Board has as much to do with each of you, as it does all of the sponsors who believed in it too.

On behalf of our area businesses, thank you for helping to shape a community of neighbors and friends. And on behalf of our Sound Waves team – what can we say? Over the past nine months you have become like family. Thank you for including us in your Friday plans.

We will certainly miss you all during this intermission, and look forward to seeing you again come March, when the music and memories begin again.

May you all have a wonderful holiday season and New Year.

Featured Artists & Events

There is an old saying attributed to music legends Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Richard Strauss and probably numerous other figures, There are only two types of music - good and bad. And while it doesn't matter who said it first -- the important thing is that it's true.
South Florida has an amazing pool of music talent in the varied genres of Jazz, Blues, Country, Latin Fusion, Top 40, Reggae, World and Classic Rock.
During this intermission we invite you to View our Artist Section to learn more about our talented 2016 lineup, follow them on their social channels, and catch an upcoming show.
