ISLAMORADA, Florida Keys — The annual Bay Jam music festival, presenting live entertainment by an eclectic range of musicians, is slated for Sunday, April 10, at the TIB Bank of the Keys Amphitheater at Founders Park, mile marker 87 bayside on Plantation Key. Attendees can savor the sounds from midday through sunset and into the night from the hammock-like performance center set against the aqua waters of Florida Bay.
The Bay Jam–packed talent lineup features nationally known musicians and favorite regional bands including Boston’s world music phenomenon Endangered Speeches, Birthday Gang playing ska and 20 WT from Jacksonville, Fla. Local favorites Micah Gardner the Barstool Sailor with Karma Truck Band and the hillbilly flamenco music of Dave Feder round out the talent.
Bay Jam’s attractions also are to include food and beverage vendors offering cool drinks and island edibles, and festival-goers can enjoy a swim at the bayfront beach. A highlight each year is an art show featuring works by local high school students.
Event proceeds benefit local students through art and music scholarships.
Doors open at 11 a.m. and Bay Jam is to continue until 9 p.m. Admission is $10 per adult, with kids age 12 and under admitted free. Student admission is $5.
