MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA – Every third Thursday of the month, starting October 17th, the Washington Avenue Business Improvement District (WAVE BID) presents the ‘Miami Beach Live Music Art Series’ accompanied by WAVE Wine and Beer tasting.
Attendees can visit fifteen different locations in Washington Avenue, that offer a wide variety of live music, in addition to twelve tastings of beer and wine from 6PM until 9PM.
Guests are invited to gather with friends at 1234 Washington Avenue at 5:30 PM to start their route of enjoying live music, beer and wine over a stretch of one mile. There will be a wide variety of live music included in the program, such as, pop, rock, reggae, latin, jazz, soul, blues and even spoken word performances.
The participating locations will then match a beer or wine for tasting, accordingly. Troy Wright, Executive Director of Washington Avenue BID, commented, “We are creating a music strip unlike any other place in the world.”
As far as the selection process, he shared, “We combined my business and entertainment experience with the desire of the property and business owners to create an experience that transcends the day-to-day grind and allows locals and tourists an opportunity to do what they came to Miami Beach for: A Happy Life Experience!”
He continued, “The best way to do this is by using the universal language that makes everyone happy: Music.”
General admission is $10 per person, or $5 for locals, for twelve Wine and Beer Tastings, and $18 for the VIP admission, which offers 24 Wine and Beer Tastings. Admission for just the Live Music portion is free.
