Florida is in store for a stellar selection of live music in the next coming months – and now that the second annual Fool’s Paradise is on the radar, the hype is only growing. Taking place in the oldest historic city within the US, St. Augustine, Live for Live Music, Purple Hat Productions and Silver Wrapper are hitting us with another 2-day funk fiesta, March 31 and April 1. After a massive success in 2016, Lettuce is returning to headline the event, along with some funky new friends:
On March 31 & April 1, Lettuce, Purple Hat Productions, Live for Live Music, and Silver Wrapper will host the 2nd annual Fool’s Paradise, a funk-fueled destination event taking place in the heart of one of America’s most historic cities: St. Augustine, Fla. Returning to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, the two-day extravaganza will feature two explosive sets from New York funk masters Lettuce, along with premier Grateful Dead tribute band Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, electro-funk duo The Floozies, a special Manic Science set featuring Manic Focus & Break Science, contemporary funk ragers The Main Squeeze, LA-based groove masters Organ Freeman, and Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge as an Artist at Large. Additional special guests will be announced soon, and several cross-collaborations amongst bands are to be expected.
With music as the main attraction, Fool’s Paradise is a premier destination event like no other. For two days under the Florida sun, there will be genre-bending music, artist-led excursions, and plenty of time for nautical activities just steps away from the ocean. A number of late night shows at the Elk’s Lodge (next door to the venue) will be announced in the coming weeks. Once in a lifetime artist-led excursions will also soon be announced, allowing you to embark on a water adventure, participate in a local activity, and immerse yourself with some of your favorite musicians in an intimate setting.
