EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SEPTEMBER 28 FOLLOWED BY BUD LIGHT-LIGHTS UP DAYTONA FIREWORKS DISPLAY OVER THE ATLANTIC On Saturday, May 25th, the Daytona Beach Bandshell’s 2019 Star Spangled Summer Concert Series presented by Boardwalk Merchants and Friends of the Bandshell will officially kick off summer in Daytona Beach with a special Memorial Weekend Celebration honoring veterans with a patriotic flyover and hosting the first free Saturday night concert of the Star Spangled Summer Concert Series. The free concerts begin at 7:15 PM and will be followed by the popular Bud Light-Lights Up Daytona fireworks displays over the Atlantic Ocean at 9:45 PM. The Star Spangled Summer Concert Series is an annual free summer concert series that takes place on Saturday nights at the world’s most famous beach’s historic Bandshell located on the North end of the Daytona Beach Boardwalk and is an experience both locals and visitors alike look forward to every summer. The 2019 free concert series, known for bringing the best Tribute Bands to the beach, will begin on May 25th and continue every Saturday night through September 28th. A star-spangled summer of fun for everyone! Admission is free and the public is invited to bring their entire family. On Saturday, May 25th, the historic Bandshell’s stage will come alive with two great shows in one Classic Rock Revival which combines Supernatural – a Santana Tribute Band and China Grove - a Doobie Brothers Tribute Band. Supernatural is an amazing Santana Tribute show like no other! The sights and sounds of the career of Carlos Santana will blow attendees away with all the many hits from the 60s to today. Everything from “Black Magic Woman” to “Smooth” is played with attention to note-for-note detail, all done with a fantastic band and a look-alike Carlos Santana! China Grove is a fantastic Doobie Brothers tribute band from the Tampa Bay area. Their repertoire spans the many decades and styles of the legendary California group. From the jammin’ rock of “Long Train Runnin” to the jazzy “Takin’ it to the Streets,” to the Grammy award winning pop of “What a Fool Believes,” this group blazes through a sizzling set of memory-jarring classic hits and album cuts with stunning accuracy and passion. Let’s just say these guys “bring it”! Bandshell parking is available at the nearby Ocean Center garage and surface lots. Attendees parking in the Ocean Center garage can take the pedestrian overpass to the Bandshell, rent a chair, purchase a drink and enjoy the free show and fireworks! Additionally, while appreciating cool evenings with live music under the stars, concert attendees may stroll the boardwalk, play skeeball or video games while enjoying food and drinks and the street performers on the world’s most famous Boardwalk. The free concerts are made possible by corporate and individual sponsors, annual members’ donations, Volusia County and Florida State grants, volunteers, City of Daytona Beach, corporate “in-kind” contributions, audience donations, chair rentals, light up merchandise and Pepsi products.
