(January 5, 2014) PALM BEACH GARDENS – Music On the Plaza is back! On Thursday, January 8, Midtown begins its popular free music series, Music On The Plaza, running each Thursday from 6:00–8:00pm. The outdoor concerts run for 12 weeks, providing audiences with new, exciting, and carefully selected local, regional, and national talent.
Kicking off the 2015 season is South Florida piano-pop act, The Jacob Jeffries Band. Jacob is one of the area’s award-winning favorite original artists with the ability to write and perform feel-good music — think The Beatles, Ben Folds, and Tom Petty. Other acts in January include The Matt Farr Band playing soulful rock, The Screaming J’s from NC playing boogie boogie piano and Ancient Sun from Orlando playing trippy eclectic groove rock.
Attendees are encouraged to enjoy food and beverages from Midtown restaurants Christopher’s Kitchen, Chipotle, J. Alexanders, Saito’s and Cantina Laredo. Christopher’s Kitchen will offer discounts on beer and wine, other specials will be announced on the night.
The free concerts attract an all-ages crowd. “We have seen an increase in young families attending over the years. They bring their young children to listen and dance to the music before bedtime,” says Belle Forino, Marketing Manager of Midtown.
To celebrate the first show of the season, Midtown will have goody bags for children under the age of 5 and free face painting from 6:00-7:30pm. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and shoes for dancing. Parking is free. Midtown is located at 4801 PGA Blvd Palm Beach Gardens. We are on the north side of the road between I-95 and the Florida Turnpike. More information can be found on the Midtown website: midtownpga.com
