Beginning on July 5 at 8 p.m., Funky Buddha Brewery (1201 NE 38th Street, Oakland Park, Florida) will pair their craft brews with local tunes every Wednesday this summer by hosting Buddha Bash: A Summer Concert Series.
In an effort to transform their Oakland Park location into a weekday summer destination for craft beer and music fans alike, Funky Buddha Brewery will serve as a venue for Buddha Bash, a showcase of local musical talent, on every Wednesday of summer. Each show will go for 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., and there will be no cover charge at all.
Buddha Bash will launch on July 5 with “MC1, a one-man Garage Punk band consisting of Joe Koontz of Against All Authority fame, performing live on the front patio.” We Got the Beats Record Store of Fort Lauderdale will also be in attendance “with an extensive collection of vinyl, selling records and keeping the jams going in between sets.” Finally, the chefs from Funky Buddha’s Craft Food Counter & Kitchen will be serving up “a pig roast with all the fixins” to ensure that everyone is covered in the grub department during the show.
If you cannot make the kick-off party for Buddha Bash, here is a look at the full lineup of shows scheduled during the month of July:
- July 5th – MC1, one-man garage punk band led by Joe Koontz of Against All Authority
- July 12th – SNOWMOON, a female fronted indie rock trio hailing from Miami, FL
- July 19th – Slow Coast, a Miami based band heavily influenced by Blues, Jazz and Rock n Roll
- July 26th – The Takers and Leavers, a Ft. Lauderdale based alternative rock and indie band
More shows will be scheduled throughout the summer, and we will do our best to update this post with that information as it is released.
If you are in the Oakland Park/Ft. Lauderdale area and have been looking for something to break up the mid-week monotony, Funky Buddha Brewery certainly has you covered with Buddha Bash. Be sure to check it out when you can. Prost!
