Public Invited To Grab Their Flip Flops And Beach Chairs For
Free Downtown Boca’s Tropical Night At Sanborn Square
Downtown Boca will be “rockn’ the tropics” when it hosts Jimmy Stowe & The Stowaways’ “Floribbean” style performance in Sanborn Square on Friday, June 1st as part of destination’s successful Friday Night LIVE! monthly entertainment series presented by JM Lexus. Evening headliner Stowe will bring the best of “Buffett and beaches” to the park and promenade streets, expecting his current and soon-to-be fans to be singing and dancing to the “songs they know by heart” during this free and open-to-the-public event.
Having performed alongside with Jimmy Buffett and Rick Nelson as well as a multi-country tour in Australia and Norway with “Dr. Hook,” Jimmy Stowe & The Stowaways blend rock and roll and country music into an exciting and energetic show. Jimmy and his band have traveled the Southeast performing at prestigious events, including shows at The Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas as well as The Mar-a-Lago Club. Jimmy Stowe has recorded two CDs and his debut single, “Boogie On The Border” has raised patriotic awareness.
Visitors are encouraged to “come early, stay late...where something for everyone awaits” as thousands have done for previous Friday Night LIVE! events that included Chris MacDonald, the “ultimate Elvis tribute artist”; Tito Puente, Jr. and his Latin Jazz ensemble; and CityLink’s Boca Beerfest.
Friday Night LIVE! festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. with the popular Gourmet Truck Expo that will be serving up a unique street side culinary experience with café seating. Attendees can enjoy Caribbean cuisine from a variety of chefs, featuring Latin and Caribbean trucks Mobile Culinary Kitchen and Out of Many Café, as well as Gene’s Joint. Clarabelle’s Cupcakes will be serving up dessert.
A group lesson of the official Downtown Boca Bop line dance by the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Downtown Boca will begin at 7:00 p.m. with Jimmy Stowe & the Stowaways taking the stage at 7:30 p.m. with favorites including “Margaritaville” and “It’s Still Rock & Roll To Me”.
