Live music starts at 7 p.m. from the front porch of Lakewood Public Library

Come Together to Twist and Shout and relive Yesterday so that you can say, I Feel Fine.  The George Martins take the stage at LakewoodAlive’s Front Porch Concert Series this Friday, August 2, at 7 p.m. to perform the music of one of the most beloved bands of all-time.

Sponsored by Bentley Wealth Management of Raymond James, the Front Porch Concert Series features free, live music on the front steps of Lakewood Public Library (15425 Detroit Avenue) in Downtown Lakewood from 7 to 9 p.m. for 10 consecutive Fridays.  The series, which aims to foster Lakewood’s vibrancy while providing a family-friendly summer entertainment option, runs through August 30.

Week 6 is presented by Bentley Wealth Management of Raymond James and features a performance by The George Martins. A local Beatles cover band renowned for its ability to replicate the “Fab Four,” The George Martins is a passion project and lifelong dream for five musicians who now combine their efforts to learn and play the original material well.

The George Martins consist of experienced musicians Michael Miller, Karah Vance, David McHenry, Tony Bunce and Jason Weiner.  The band originally formed in 2016 for the annual Beatles-themed hunger relief fundraiser, All You Need is Love (and Food).  The members knew something special had happened after they took the stage and since then, the band has perfected a repertoire spanning The Beatles’ entire career.

Now in its ninth year, LakewoodAlive’s popular Front Porch Concert Series adds vibrancy and an enhanced sense of community to Lakewood’s urban core, drawing several thousand attendees annually.  Each week showcases a different style of music while Lakewoodites and visitors enjoy an entertaining evening at an open-air venue.  Visit for more information.
