Cheers March

The Weekend Concierge strives to find great venues that support live music in the North, Central and South ends of Broward County.  This list is not a tell-all but rather a handy chart, presented in alphabetical order by city so no preference is given over the first versus last venue listed.  In addition to the names of the venues, cities, and bands playing Friday and Saturday night, the list also gives you a quick look at which places allow smoking indoors versus those that are smoke-free.

At the start of every week, The Weekend Concierge checks out the live music calendar to see who is playing where on Friday and Saturday nights and prepares a list of ten recommended spots to catch live music around town.  The lists consists of some of the favorite local spots for watching cover bands in and around Fort Lauderdale.  Preference is given to venues which offer live music on both Friday AND Saturday nights.  Consistency is extremely important when booking quality entertainment. People should feel confident that the managers who book the bands for these bars and restaurants know how to seek out artists that will entertain their customers.

While this list is a great place to start your weekend planning, be sure to follow it up by checking out the complete hour by hour listing of live bands in and around town on the  LIVE MUSIC EVENTS CALENDAR.
