Eclectic Lineup to Hit Stage
at 26th Annual Island Fest
A diverse selection of music including blues, country, classic rock, reggae, island melodies and more awaits visitors at the 26th Annual Florida Keys Island Fest, presented by the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce. The two-day festival, which also features The Taste of Islamorada, a gourmet food competition, a vintage car show and roughly 100 artists from around the country showcasing and selling their goods, will take place on Saturday and Sunday, April 1st and 2nd, at Founders Park.
The delSol Band
Two days of waterfront concerts overlooking the pristine Florida Bay will begin shortly after Island Fest kicks off at 10:00 a.m. on April 1.
Saturday's three-act line-up opens with The delSol Band, a quartet of local high school teachers pumping out a range of classic rock favorites.
At noon, I-Land Vibe, a group who has performed regularly in the Florida Keys for over a decade, will hit the stage to bring patrons some feel-good reggae and calypso-style tunes.
"We're an island band," head musician Rayner Washington said. "So we perform popular American songs with an island twist. And we promise you'll leave feeling happy."
The Pitbull of Blues Band
Saturday's concert lineup will conclude with The Pit Bull of Blues Band, featuring the raucous guitar of band leader Josh Rowand, while local artist Pasta Pantaleo paints to the rhythm.
Island Fest ends at 5 p.m. on Saturday, but the bayside concert will go live again at 10 a.m. Sunday morning with the flamenco guitar of local musician Dave Feder.
Tim Charron takes the stage at noon, who describes his sound as "country rock with a twist of lime."
Charron gets crowds moving with his mix of country favorites and original tunes which often detail adventure, travel and the tropical world.
Closing out Island Fest on Sunday afternoon will be Seranation.
Hailing from all different musical backgrounds, Seranation has a unique blend of pop-reggae/rock that the band has labeled as "Trop-Rock".
