Florida's Resource For Info On Music Cruises, Outdoor Music Festivals, Bike Festivals, and Bands!*
Since 2011 we have produced concerts across North Florida called 'The Santa Jam Toy Drive and Musican Showcase', in which bands and local sponsors come together as a toy fundraiser for children in local hospitals, as well as homeless and needy families during the holidays. They have been an overwhelming success, and we have delivered and distributed nearly 2500 toys across 9 counties in the state! Charities have included Shands Childrens Hospital in Gainesville, Downtown Ministries in Gainesville, the Angel Tree at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Gainesville, the Angel Tree in the Lake City Mall, 5 Points Elementary in Lake City, Episcopal Childrens Services in Starke, Catholic Charities in Lake City, individual families in need, and more.

Welcome to Florida Rocks! your one stop for music cruises, large concerts, and the local and regional artists performing at the events. This is also an ever growing collection of the greatest bands playing to live audiences in North and Central Florida. We firmly believe that those legends who paved the way for the scene we have now should also be honored for their ground breaking achievements and success, so there is a section dedicated to them as well.
On this site you will find links to awesome concerts, as well as videos, biographies, and pictures of Florida Bands and Artists. You can also discover local bands from the past in the 'Band Archives' area. Look for the page of your favorite Florida rock bands and musicians, or find info on a band you've only heard about, and long live rock and roll!
Florida Rocks! helps promote both indoor and outdoor shows which showcase talent within the state. We also work with national and international touring rock bands to recommend the best venues for their genre and draw, aligning them with great promoters and assist with booking shows in the Southeastern United States, and also guiding bands to the best internet radio stations, commercial radio stations, social media outlets, and webzines for increased publicity.
