Music on Main is on its way, so make sure to mark your calendars! Music on Main is a free block party and concert series that will take place on the first Friday of each month. Music on Main is from 6 to 9 p.m. in Lakewood Ranch on Main Street.
During Music on Main, Main Street is lined with food vendors, beer trucks, sponsor booths, rides, and activities for children. The activities are presented by Grace Community Church. Even though this celebration is free to the public, any proceeds made will benefit a local non-profit organization each event.
In June, Music on Main will feature the One Night Rodeo band, a contemporary country group. When One Night Rodeo isn’t performing, a DJ will play today’s top 100 hits. Any proceeds made in June will benefit The Haven.
During July, Music on Main will have music provided by the Trevor Bystrom Band, which is a multicultural group. Their sound includes hints of blues, Latin music, reggae, and calypso. A DJ will also play top 100 hits, while benefits go to The Florida West Coast Avian Society.
On the first Friday of August, Music on Main will have music by funk and rock band The Reality. There will also be a DJ playing top 100 hits, while event benefits will go towards the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast.
October will feature music by The HeadTones (St. Petersburg’s Funk and Soul Sextet), November will have music by The Eric Von Band, and December will have blues, r&b, and soul music by Sugar & Space revival. Respectively, each event will donate proceeds to the Healthy Start Coalition of Sarasota County, the Lakewood Ranch Community Fund, and Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee.
Right off the strip of Music on Main is Ed’s Tavern. After attending Music on Main, visit Ed’s Tavern for dinner and drinks! We are located at 10719 Rodeo Drive in Lakewood Ranch and we hope to see you here soon!
