About Us

Weekend Broward was founded in 2010 as a way to help local bands, bars, restaurants and cities get the word out to the right people about upcoming live music events specifically in Broward County, Boca Raton and Delray Beach. The website’s reach was later expanded to include all of Palm Beach County.  In addition, daily calendars were added for karaoke, food truck events, happy hours, daily dinner deals and comedy shows. Today, the website is a valuable resource for anyone searching for things to do around town, from Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach, with an emphasis on events that incorporate live music.

How do we pay for this website?

1. Google Ads. We have enabled Google to insert ads throughout our website. We do our best to ensure that ads are relevant to our readers but most of time, this is up to Google’s algorithm.  We only get paid a few pennies whenever people click on the ads but every bit helps.

2. Sponsored Ads. Throughout the site, you will see certain venues highlighted via display ads.  Depending on the level of sponsorship, the site gives back by featuring them wherever possible.

3. Sponsored events.  While most events are listed at no charge, there is always the option to go the extra mile and promote certain events a little more in return for a donation to the site.

4. Individual donations. Although the website and email subscription is 100% free to use, we do have expenses. If we have provided you, your band or your business with a valuable service, we appreciate donations of any size to help offset our increasing costs of operation.

History of Weekend Broward and The Weekend Concierge

Weekend Broward was created in 2010 by The Weekend Concierge, a fan of local bands who wanted to share his calendar with friends so that they would always know which bands were playing where each weekend.  Since bands often listed dates but not the exact times they were playing, he insisted on finding out this information so nobody was disappointed when they showed up too early or too late.

With limited budgets, local artists as well as local bars and restaurants are now able to promote their events on a website that is available to anyone looking for live, local entertainment throughout Broward and Palm Beach counties. Listings on the various calendars are 100% free while the cost of placing an ad is nominal compared with most other media outlets.

Using Facebook as his public diary, The Weekend Concierge travels throughout south Florida, searching for great bands, venues and people having a good time.  He takes photos wherever he goes and shares them via various Facebook and Instagram social media pages.
