Friday Night Sound Waves


Due to projected construction impacts on Fort Lauderdale Beach and along A1A, our 2019 Season is currently scheduled to run sixteen weeks, taking place March 15 through June 28 from 6 – 9pm.

While it is a short cry form our regular 36-week /8 month schedule, we are certainly not short on talent or the exciting activities we have planned. In addition to some of your all time favorites we have discovered a few new rising-stars , and thanks to the pool of talented musicians in So. Florida, have curated two jam-style bands.

Sixteen weeks, while short, will be sweet … and will surely be even sweeter with you.
