THE SOUND IN CLEARWATER DEBUT
The Sound, a music venue located in Clearwater at Coachman Park, makes it’s debut this week and through the weekend. A part of a $400 million project called Imagine Clearwater where public spaces around downtown and Coachman are being renovated to draw more local and tourist traffic to the area. The benefit for us is that the venue will draw mid-level artists to a 4,000 seat arena with an additional 5,000 lawn capacity. Acts like Peter Frampton, Michael Franti, Goo Goo Dolls and John Fogerty and a bunch of other acts are scheduled to perform throughout the month! More info , tickets and dates can be found at Ruth Eckerd Hall.
