"South Florida has some talented singer songwriters with original lyrics and music, and Palm Beach County loves craft beer, premium wine, art, and live performances and great music!" 

You'll hear songs off the Monty Warren & The Friggin' Whatevers three albums, and a few off his upcoming album ("Two Badasses") with international rocker, Phil Wolff. 

David Gruitza, frontman for Fern Street, will also be rocking the afternoon's music celebration with his original tunes.

BIO: Instead of heading for L.A. in the '70s, in pursuit of a record deal, Monty Warren put his rock 'n' roll dreams on hold to support his mother for 20 years until she passed away. Then, in 2007, Warren played a demo for Terry Anderson & The Olympic Ass-Kickin' Team (Battleship Chains, I Love You Period), and they offered to help him make a record. And the rest, as they say, is Friggin' Whatevers history.
