There are a million reasons to visit Florida each summer. From hot fun in the sun and relaxing days on the beach to deep-sea fishing, SCUBA diving, and water sports, the list of reasons to visit coastal Florida on your vacation goes on forever. While the big picture vacation items may be obvious, the area around Treasure Island, Florida and Treasure Bay Resort and Marina is also full of surprises that help to make your southern getaway one for the ages. This August, for instance, a handful of internationally popular musicians and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will be playing concerts in the area – making for the perfect evening exclamation point after a day spent enjoying the best of The Sunshine State.
Bask in the Glow of Soul and R&B Legends
The Isley Brothers have been around since 1954 and have been producing hit after hit for nearly all of those 63 years. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, the music of the Isley Brothers spans many genres including doo-wop, soul, funk, and gospel. This August 6th, make the short drive across the peninsula to the Mahaffey Theatre in St. Petersburg to dance and sing along to one of rock and roll’s most influential groups.
Watch more Award Winning Artists in Tampa
Just up the road from Treasure Island, Florida is the more bustling city of Tampa, Florida. On August 11th, Tampa’s Amalie Arena (home to the National Hockey League’s Tampa Bay Lightning) is hosting the “All The Hits Tour” starring Lionel Richie with Mariah Carey! This diverse duo has individually won multiple Grammy Awards and each has their own multi-platinum selling albums. With so much success individually, we can’t see what magic happens when they play together!
A Modern Blues, Acoustic, Pop, and Jam Legend
Over the past few decades, John Mayer has made a name for himself in a wide variety of musical genres, and across all of them he has proven to be a very accomplished guitar player. This summer, Mayer is on his “Search for Everything” World Tour and will be stopping at the Amalie Arena in Tampa on August 13th. Each show on this tour will include Mayer playing front man with the John Mayer trio, a full band, and as a solo acoustic artist as well. This concert will not be one to miss!
