Live Music On Stage: Lots of gigs are going on in May at multiple locations

Connoisseurs of live music in Flagler County have several options for the coming month. Several of those can be found at Club 51 of Palm Coast, who host live music and entertainment every night they’re open. On Saturday, May 6th, Trish and the Party Train will take the stage, building off a solid run of performances across Flagler and Volusia counties. Saturday the 13th will feature Billy Buchanan on the Club 51 stage, throwing listeners back to the sounds of their childhoods. Proclaimed by himself as the ‘Ambassador of Rock n’ Soul, Buchanan is a surefire ticket to a mellow ride on an eclectic sonic palette.
On Saturday the 20th, ‘Vintage Now’ will take the stage, their very name seeming to suggest an exciting trip down memory lane. Then on the 27th, the Daytona-based B Naturals will capitalize on their growing star power on the local scene to get all in attendance at Club 51 in the right groove to kick off their weekend.
On May 21st, Finn’s Beachside Pub will be hosting ‘Touch of Dead’ at their ocean deck stage, a must-see musical event for all the town’s Dead-heads. On May 2nd at Tortuga’s Kitchen & Bar, Ben Tadikken will be performing, followed by an open mic night the following night. Both these events kick off at 6:00 pm.
The Golden Lion Café is also a prime destination for live music in the month of May, with scheduled performers including Happy Hour with Mike Hynes every Monday in May from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and sets from Walt Kulwicki in the same time slot on the 4th and 25th.
