Returning FAM Night participant, CocoWalk, will host Bottle & Bottega, an interactive and customized art class that allow participants to mingle and paint as students follow the lead art instructor step-by-step to create their own take-home masterpiece on a 8 x 8 canvas.

The Academy of Arts & Minds will perform a mix of genres and styles such as jazz and classical hits. Miami “Folk Dub” musician, Adrian Gonzalez, is set to play at Vino’s in the Grove, where visitors will enjoy a loop base performance that blends acoustic and electronic sounds.  On Commodore Plaza, Zach Jones, a one-man indie/folk band, will be making his way South from Fort Pierce to perform a soulful set of acoustics.  At CocoWalk, catch local Miami Drummer, Chris Rod, live with his take on today’s pop and yesterday’s rock.
