Update: The March 9 concert featuring the U.S. Coast Guard is canceled.
The Coast Guard released the following statement:
“It was not an easy decision. We further regret that the US Coast Guard Band's tour of the South (which included Bradenton) was cancelled so close to its start- however, the final decision was delayed until today under the hope that there would be some sort of resolution to sequestration. Per the Coast Guard Commandant's guidance on the Coast Guard's handling of sequestration, the service's priority during this time is to preserve those areas that best support its critical assets.”
Original: Grab a blanket and some friends to unwind Friday nights along Bradenton's Riverwalk.
The Music in the Park series kicks off from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 1 at the Mosaic Amphitheater along Rossi Park and the Riverwalk featuring the Marc Mannino Jazz Quartet.
The series continues each Friday in March from 6 to 8 p.m. at the amphitheater.
The concerts are free and blankets and chairs are welcomed. Renaissance on 9th will sell food and drinks.
