Welcome to daytona beach sign

For the past 20 years the Friends of the Bandshell, Inc. a not-for-profit corporation, has been gracing Daytona Beach with free concerts with a goal to bring a cultural force into the community. Locals and tourists mingle in a relaxed and fun atmosphere in the historic beachside treasure: The Daytona Beach Bandshell. As the sun starts to set the band takes the stage and people gather around to listen to great music, have a drink and take in the beautiful sight of the beach at nighttime.

There’s a lot to be enjoyed as restaurants, shops and even a movie theater are located right there by the stage.There’s something for everyone. Adults, teenagers and kids are sure to enjoy this lovely event.

Friends of the Bandshell has presented a variety of performing artists from local high school and college groups to regional and nationally known professionals. Musical offerings include Big Band, Swing, various Jazz stylings, Blues, Latin, Folk, Country and Gospel.

The free concerts are made possible by corporate and individual sponsors, annual members’ donations, Volusia County and Florida State grants, volunteers, City of Daytona Beach, corporations “in-kind” contributions, and audience donations.

Accommodations are available at the Hawaiian Inn that is located just a few minutes away from the Daytona Beach Bandshell.
