Florida Rock Stars
According to their website, Florida Rocks Stars “like songs with guitars in them.” This simple declaration has become a call to action, spurring the group to bring rock ‘n’ roll to South Florida without kidnapping Bon Jovi. Their ever-growing network of hard-hitting bands and friendly venues combines to thrill audiences with day-long concerts that not only benefit fans, but also raise a portion of the money for local charities.
