Tis the season for live music in paradise. We’re not just sand and surf here on 30a. Our scenic stretch of beach here on the Emerald Coast is fast becoming a haven for great local music acts and outdoor venues. This week’s edition of 3 for 30a highlights our best picks for live music this weekend.
We’ll see everyone on Friday evening June 10th at the Hub on 30a. Local favorite Heritage will take the stage at 7PM with their brand of reggae to help rock the night away. Also, local smoke will be cooking up some delicious bar-b-que creations for hungry fans. This event is free and open to the public.
Check out a few highlights of one of the Emerald Coast’s most favorite bands!
