Free live entertainment offered on Ocean Drive

Picture this — you’re sitting on a lawn chair, an ocean breeze hits your face on a sunny Sunday with live music playing in the background.

You can make this daydream a reality with the Ocean Drive Promenade Music Series that takes place every Sunday at 5 p.m. between 14th street and 14th place on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach in front of The Betsy Hotel.

Bring a picnic, lawn chairs, blankets, and your whole gang to enjoy these free open-air performances. 

During the month of May, guests can enjoy the musical stylings of:

  • Danny Mixon Trio with Carole Ann Taylor, May 1
  • South Beach Chamber Ensemble, May 8
  • Reuben Hoch and Time, May 15
  • New World Symphony Chamber Ensemble, May 22
  • Nu-Deco Ensemble Combo, May 29

Stay tuned for the June and July lineup when the Miami Beach Classical Music Festival Performances lineup will be announced!

The music series is presented in partnership with The Betsy’s 10th Annual Overture to Overtown Jazz Festival and during National Jazz Appreciation Month (“JAM”), created in 2001 at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History to celebrate the heritage and history of American jazz.

In the case of rain, events will be held in The Betsy’s Lobby. For more information, click here.
