It was a musical night in Coconut Grove
Eddie Roses, lead singer of Main Street band, was amazing last night during the Fete de la Musique event, which had musicians performing all over Coconut Grove. Eddie and his group were in front of Wine, Etc., on Commodore Plaza. Their Beatles songs were spot on.
The atmosphere felt like a little European street with the diners next door at Bombay Darbar enjoying the show at streetside tables, along with the people enjoying the wine from the wine shop.
The Jacob Jeffries Band rocked the Mayfair Promenade and drew an early crowd, they have an interesting sound, very original.
One group that drew a large crowd for most of the night was the all girl band called That Girl Band of 305. They sang and played string instruments. At times they were overshadowed by the loud band across the street -- the Rodiles, a young group of guys who are also there most weekends. They're really good.
The event was held in conjunction with the Summer Solstice, June 21, next year it will be held on a Friday, which should bring out larger crowds. The event was put together by the Miami Conservatory of Music, Coconut Grove's own music academy, along with Ronald Jakubisin & Associates. Tony Angione of the Mayfair Antique Market provided the tents, which luckily were not needed since it was a rainless night!
