Season 17 is in the books!  We endured three rainouts and were fortunate to be able to make up two of those shows.  We ended the year with a fun and memorable performance from The Duffy Bishop Band.  The music was amazing, and we raised $2000 to help cover 2020 expenses. 

We could not be more excited about planning next year’s schedule.  Over 100 bands have expressed an interest in playing next year at Music by the Sea.  We will make decisions on bands in February and will publish our schedule in March. 

In addition to a $6500 grant from the Tourism Development Council, we already have sponsorship commitments from Longstreet Auto, Pure Barre, and Annie-Mac Home Mortgage.  Sponsorship packages range from $500 to $2000 for the season.  If you or your company want to be a partner in the iconic Music by the Sea Concert series in 2020, please contact us at 904-347-8007

Based on feedback from many patrons, we are considering some changes to next years schedule. In order to get as much input as possible, we are making the survey available through our newsletter, on our Music by the Sea Facebook page and on our website.  To preserve the integrity of the results, only one survey per I.P. address will be permitted.  The survey will be out in mid-November and will be available until the end of the year. 

Help the Civic Association keep the music playing in 2020 and beyond!
