VERO BEACH — Live From Vero Beach returns to The Emerson Center stage for its 6th season of “music concerts close to home” and this season, audiences can expect an expanded version of performers that will surely satisfy the palette of Vero’s wide demographic of music lovers. The Presenting Sponsors of the entire season are Cindy O’Dare and Richard Boga of Premier Estate Properties.

Rusty Young and Stacey Kasselman of MusicWorks, Inc, along with Bev and Marty Paris of Paris Productions, have teamed together once more as the LIVE! From Vero Beach co-producers, to launch a fun-filled musical line-up that will kick-off right after the holiday season.

The concerts are geared to classic folk and rock groups that performed from the 60’s on. This year’s variety of talent includes known celebrated performers, the ever-requested tribute bands, and a new music phenomenon established in Canada, Classic Albums Live which will perform famous albums “word for word…cut for cut.”

“We have discovered that our artists connect with a wide range of ages and musical tastes” explains MusicWorks Concert Promoter Rusty Young. “Our winter residents have become a huge audience for us and local businesses enjoy the opportunity to become sponsors in order to reach this particular audience. We also pride ourselves in partnering with non-profit organizations in the community, offering them the ability to fundraise for their organization as well as bringing awareness to themselves by displaying information in the lobby prior to the performances. This is a win-win for everyone.”
