Time for some great music

Hello, everyone.

If you're reading this, hopefully you're doing it in downtown Fort Pierce, where there is enough going on this weekend to make me tired just writing about it.

This week seems to be all about the music, and it doesn't get better than the Fort Pierce Jazz and Blues Society.

The nonprofit organization has planned not one, but eight days of music, plenty to satisfy any jazz need a person might have.

This will be the first time the society has taken on this large of an event, so pick one day or all of them and head on down to show them some support.

A special preview of what's in store for you begins Friday, March 22 at Art Mundo Studios on Orange Avenue.

At an event call "Support the Arts, Enjoy the Grape," there will be a live painting demonstration and plenty of jazz.

Then on Saturday, head on down to the Sandy Shoes Festival, where live music will be played throughout the day.

Sunday, head to downtown around 1 p.m. for a little jazz by the marina, and then there will also be five midday concerts all next week from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Now's the time to eat your lunch outdoors, and what better way to do it than by listening to jazz music?

If rock music is more your style, the Sunrise Theatre has a treat for you this weekend.

There are still tickets left for Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, a husband and wife team playing for one night only on March 24. And yes, it's that Pat Benatar, with all of the songs that made her famous. There are plenty of other choices waiting for you at the Sunrise Theatre, so go online to www.sunrisetheatre.com to see all the upcoming shows they have to offer.

So, no matter what your music stylings, there's something there for you.

I'll see you out about this weekend. Have fun and drive safe!
