RAMROD KEY, Florida Keys — Attendees can rock to music by renowned regional bands and entertainers while benefiting the José Wejebe Memorial Foundation at the fourth annual Spanish Fly Music Festival.
The event is set for 1-6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 30, at Boondocks Grille & Draft House & Miniature Golf, located on Ramrod Key at mile marker 27.5 on the Florida Keys Overseas Highway.
José Wejebe was a Florida Keys charter captain whose top-rated television fishing show, “Spanish Fly,” inspired a generation of viewers before his untimely death in a 2012 plane crash. The foundation in his name was established to carry on his passion for conserving the marine environment, supporting those facing life-impacting challenges and making fishing dreams come true.
The festival’s entertainment roster features musicians and bands that play a leading role in the Keys’ flourishing live music scene including Brian Roberts, Ty Thurman, Adrienne Z and John Bartus. They are to be joined by Gunner & the Grizzly Boys, specializing in country music with Michigan roots.
In addition to enjoying nonstop music, festival attendees can bid on a wide range of goods, services and experiential offerings at a silent auction. Raffles, mini-golf, activities for children and other attractions are to round out the day’s festivities.
