Music, the dictionaries tell us, is vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such ways as to produce beauty of form, harmony and expression of emotion.

When it’s live music, it’s even better.

When it’s live music at a Florida venue, that cranks the form, harmony and emotion all the way up to 10.

In Florida, you can tune into live rock, country, oldies, jazz, easy listening, indie, techno, hip-hop, reggae, Latin, punk and more. You can visit attractions where music runs the board from stage shows and soloists to guest artists and full concert series. There are live music venues presenting acts you’ve followed for years as well as new bands you’ll want to shuffle right now into your iTunes.
