There are independence day celebrations going on in almost every town throughout south Florida, however, only a select few put the effort to support our thirst for live music. That’s why we focus on 4th of July celebrations that include one or more bands, many local and some well known national recording artists with free outdoor concerts prior to the traditional display of fireworks.
