Come support local music while watching the sunset over the Manatee River! Realize Bradenton's free, family-friendly, outdoor concert series is back with live music at downtown Bradenton's 400-seat Mosaic Amphitheater on the Riverwalk. Local craft beer and other beverages will be available for purchase. Audience members are encouraged to bring a picnic basket, blankets or chairs, and their furry companions on leashes!
Each event will also showcase dogs from local shelters who will be available for adoption. You can also order Jimmy John's and they will deliver it to the event.
The series is made possible, in part, with support from the Bradenton Downtown Development Authority, the Bradenton Herald, Royal Pet Rescue, Moonracer No Kill Animal Rescue, and Friends of Manatee County Animal Services. Proceeds from the sale of beverages will benefit local animal rescues.

Its roots lead him to recreate and develop melodies, rhythms, styles and rhythms of the Trova, the Changüí Nengón, the Conga, Rumba and Son Santiago, making a kind of journey through the different playing styles of the eastern country, mixed with the urban concept of Arsenio Rodríguez and Child Rivera.
