Multigenre Live Music to Headline Islamorada’s 29th Annual Bay Jam

ISLAMORADA, Florida Keys Live musical performers representing Florida Keys rock, jazz, reggae, blues and more, along with student bands from Island Music School, are to play for audiences from midmorning into the evening Sunday, April 14, at Islamorada’s Bay Jam 29.

Presented by the not-for-profit Islamorada Community Entertainment, the outdoor concert takes place at the ICE Amphitheater at Founders Park, mile marker 87 bayside on Plantation Key. Doors open at 10 a.m. and live performances are scheduled from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Bay Jam 29’s lineup features Caribbean-influenced jazz by the Bill Todd Trio; the genre-bending cover bands Uncle Rico, the Lower Mat Cats and the Key Largo Jam Band; reggae-tinged blues by Jimmy Hawkins; more blues by Felex the Catt and the Lady A Blues Band; Leah Sutter’s acoustic pop; popular Keys performers the Barstool Sailors and The Carousers; and the flamenco-infused guitar fusion of Dave Feder, Bay Jam’s founder and longtime guiding spirit.

Bay Jam attractions also are to include artisan booths, festival souvenir merchandise, cold locally crafted beers and food truck selections.

Attendees can bring lawn chairs and blankets, or enjoy a swim at the bayside beach. Well-behaved leashed pets are welcome, but coolers are not permitted.

General admission is free, although donations are welcomed. Parking is available inside Founders Park for $10.

Event proceeds help fund in-school programs and arts and music scholarships for Upper Keys high school students. ICE events have contributed nearly $1 million toward the grants.
