#JazzBluesFlorida #jazz #blues #Florida #Concerts #Festivals #Clubs

Boston’s on the Beach will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year and would like to offer a sincere thank you to all its patrons by inviting them to this once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Starting Monday October 19th through the 25th, there is going to be an incredible entertainment line-up, surprises, give-a-ways and specials like never before!

Located at 40 South Ocean Boulevard in Delray Beach, Florida, Boston’s offers one of the most breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and is the ideal place to enjoy casual dining, great live music, and sports on over thirty large-screen LCD TVs.

Monday “Reggae” Night:

Kulcha Shok’s Lance-O and William Freeman (aka White Abbott) will open the night at 9PM by spinning some of the latest and classic Roots Reggae vibes. The ever-so-popular Reggae band, Rythmation will start at 10PM and has invited special guest and highly recognized Jamaican Reggae artist, Glen Washington to join in on the celebration. There will be killer drinks specials all night long and to show appreciation to all who have supported the local Reggae scene over the last three decades, Boston’s is waiving the standard door charge and including some great give-a-ways sponsored by local retailer and friend, Nomad Surf Shop.

Blue Tuesday:
This night just continues to grow in popularity each and every week, most likely due to the massive blues line up over the past year. "Famous Frank" Ward will host this special night and has invited The Nouveaux Honkies to perform along with the legendary Matt "Guitar" Murphy. Matt is mostly remembered by the general public as the lead guitar player for the ever so popular and entertaining group, The Blues Brothers,but he was already a legend among serious guitarists by the 1960s, famed for the incredibly fast and intricate blues riffs that would soon change rock and roll. While white rock and rollers were still playing the slow melodic riffs of "Love One Another" or the slow fuzzy riffs of "Wild Thing," a few (like Eric Clapton, Rick Derringer and Jeff Beck) were listening to the flying fingers of B. B. King and Matt Murphy and trying to emulate them


Over the past six months, Boston’s has been diligently recording live performances of the acts that have helped shape its musical identity. This night they will be celebrating their “One More and I’m Outta Here” 30th Anniversary CD Release Party. The complementary double live CD will be available with the purchase of their commemorative 30th anniversary T-shirt and all proceeds will benefit Delray Citizens for Delray Police.

“Cleveland’s Piano Man” John Salamon, is scheduled to perform Wednesday thru Sunday at the Boston’s Back Bay Tiki bar starting at 5PM. With all of his musical training and experience (advice from the likes of Liberace, Corey Wells of Three Dog Night and many others), John has used his talents to become the consummate entertainer that he is today. From celebrities to Mayors to Governors, all have mentioned during their shows and speeches how unique and thoroughly enjoyable John’s shows are.

John has performed for the very first and many subsequent shows for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame including the opening ceremonies and a special show for I.M. Pei, the architect of the museum. Because of this and other achievements, John was honored on a plaque in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Cadence will be open the main stage at 8PM with their reunion tour and the legendary Swamp-Funk group, Groove Thangs will headline the night starting at 10:30PM. Cadence, a four piece acoustic harmony act performs your favorite Rock, Folk/Rock hits of the 60’s and 70’s including singer/songwriter hits of today.

Founded in 1984 by Bonefish Johnny and his brother Down Pat with the help of other brother Michael and a slew of badass musicians, Groove Thangs have forged not only their own sound but a special attitude about life and love that has endeared them to music fans around the world. After getting signed and dropped by a major label in 1989, they went on to successfully record and release their music independently, winning awards and gaining sponsorship while proving it on stage every night. In a quote from someone recognized for his controversial stage persona and image, “Groove Thangs are known around town as the baddest, the most get-down soulful white cats around." - Brian Warner (Marilyn Manson)


Breeze will open the night starting at 8PM and will hand the stage over to the Funkabilly Playboys at 10:30PM. Just close your eyes and you will hear what we mean when Breeze, one the finest “tribute” bands you will ever hear, presents the frontrunners and pioneers of rock and folk rock in a concert-style performance.

This is not your average band.


The Magnetics have been invited to kick this night off at 8PM in front of the killer sounds of the infamous Wreckly J’s who will start at 10PM. RUDY will headline the night at 11:30PM with their sexy funk style performance.

The Magnetics are part of the original line-up of bands that were performing at Boston’s back in the early eighties. Their rich vocal harmonies and ability to toss anything from 50’s Doo-Wop to Rock and R&B has gained them much notoriety and a huge Boston’s fan base.

The Wreckly J’s possess a huge Delray Beach following as well and are close friends of Boston’s and their patrons.. Spunk Rock (That’s Southern Punk), where Thorogood gets run over by social distortion with a short bus-type Rock is how they describe their unique style. Their influences consist of legendary bands such as the Dictators, Johnny Thunders and all NY Dolls projects, Manitoba, Ramones, Fleshtones, Clash, D.A.D , Social Distortion and Brian Setzer to name a few.

RUDY is. There is no succinct definition, just a motto: don't stop... The core members of RUDY always gave more than expected, always played longer than thought possible, and ALWAYS gave a warm, loving hand to the fabulous people who fanatically followed them. Gaining steam at various festivals throughout Florida, RUDY gained a slot on the HORDE tour, as well as the 1998 HORDE Compilation CD. MTV has licensed the entire RUDY catalog to use on the soundtracks of "The Real World" and "Road Rules", reaching millions of people every time they air! Plus, RUDY has become a staple on a nationally syndicated Disney show called "Z Games", reaching kids of all ages!

She is a 23 year old vivacious red-head specializing in crossover country music with a Celtic twist. Her lead vocals are gripping while her fiddle and mandolin playing leaves audiences always wanting more. Amber Leigh's music is full of enticing pop hooks, yet embraces true country soul due to her roots in southern rock fiddle music.

Diversity is scheduled at the Back Bay Tiki bar at 3PM. Diversity offers a combination of Reggae, Pop, R&B and Calypso style music.. Their strong harmonies and “fun-in-the-sun” song selection will keep you entertained for hours.
