Since its inception as a free street parade called The Royal Palm festival, SunFest has served South Eastern Floridians as a large scale annual arts exposition unlike any other in the region. An impressive twenty-nine year track record boasts a history of acclaimed musicians and bands including names in the vein of Dizzy Gillespie, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Sly and the Family Stone, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, ZZ Topand Huey Lewis.
This year was the second SunFest of the twenty-tens and the five-day bill aimed to please with a fifty-two band lineup ranging from (more…)
It’s that time of year again – and I don’t mean the migration of the snow birds back to their northern habitat. To the rest of the country it is spring, but for us it is the beginning of Florida’s summer season and with that comes the highly anticipated festival with a fitting nomenclature – SunFest!

Boasting 29 years of celebrating the coming of May, SunFest is a staple event that brings an eclectic mix of music, libations and beautiful weather along the Florida Intracoastal Waterway in downtown West Palm Beach.

If I have learned anything about the South Florida music scene, it is this: never underestimate the draw of a Grateful Dead project. Whether it is a weekly residency by Crazy Fingers, a headlining spot for Dark Star Orchestra at the Garlic Festival or Further taking over Mizner Park, you can bank on two things – a solid turn out and something special happening.
I knew all of this yet I still had it in my head that I could exercise some good karma
The jamband moe.nster just stomped through Florida like Godzilla. Maybe it’s no coincidence that they just returned from their first run of club shows in Japan since 2007. Click through to read an in depth reviewall about last week’s three night run from Ft. Lauderdale to Tampa and on to Orlando.
We here at Brotherly Love Produductions are huge moe.rons and annually attend moe.down and any other moe. event within our reach. My first moe. show was at the Electric Factory in Philly 6/12/1998 when they shared the stage with both String Cheese Incident and Strangefolk and has a strong footing in my Top-10 all time shows. It is our pleasure to help promote their Florida shows and really appreciate their participation in this exclusive Q&A. They were introduced to many in South Florida at the very first Langerado and although they’ve also played another Langerado or two since, have been neglecting this market for far too long. Coming off a yearlong 20th Anniversary tour that included Bear Creek, the band has never been more on fire. Focusing much more on their improv and song segues; their shows are definitely something you’d dig music fan. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into drummer Vinnie Amico‘s mind and that we see you at any or all of their Florida shows next week (Tues 4/5 @ Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale, Thurs 4/7 @ The Ritz in Tampa & Fri 4/8 at House of Blues in Orlando)!
