Oldies Beach Dance
Thanks to all who made the Oldies Beach Dance and Jazz Fest an overwhelming success. Plans are already being made for February and March of 2021. DON'T MISS OUT!
The 10th Annual Oldies Beach Dance is coming up on Tuesday, March 10! For those of you who have attended in the past or are new to the Oldies Beach Dance, we’ll again be heading over to the Sandbar Restaurant Wedding Pavilion on the beach in Anna Maria this year. Many thanks to the Sandbar Restaurant owner, Ed Chiles, for donating his property for this event. We’re scheduled for Tuesday, March 10 and will start at 3 and wrap things up around 5.
In addition to the Gulf Drive Duo, with Diane Lyons on vocals and yours truly on vocals, flutes and saxes, we’ll welcome back Koko Ray as one of our guest soloists. Koko is an outstanding vocalist and plays two saxes at the same time! He has been an Oldies Beach Dance guest performer for many years and always presents a first-class performance.
This year, we are also fortunate to have Matt Coates as a guest soloist. Matt is a local vocalist and keyboardist from Bradenton. He works at many of the finer country clubs, restaurants and private parties in our area. Matt sings and plays a full variety of music from the 40s to 2000s. It should be a great show.
Oldies Beach Dance tickets are available online at the Anna Maria Island Concert Chorus and Orchestra web site or by contacting the AMI Chamber of Commerce, 5313 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach. Tickets are $10 in advance of March 10. After music expenses, all proceeds go to the Anna Maria Island Concert Chorus and Orchestra.
