Florida's Resource For Info On Music Cruises, Outdoor Music Festivals, Festivals, and Bands!*
For the last five years we have produced concerts across the state of Florida called 'Santa Jam', in which dozens of bands and local sponsors come together as a toy fundraiser for sick and injured children admitted to UF Health during the holidays, as well as needy families in our area.
We work with local charities, such as Catholic Charities, Love Inc, Sparky's Kids, Downtown Ministries, The St. Francis House, The Angel Tree at the Lake City Mall, 5 Points Elementary, Episcopal Children’s Services, Partnership for Strong Families, Holy Trinity In Gainesville, and more. The shows have been an overwhelming success, and we have delivered and distributed 3479 toys since we started in December of 2011.
Our sponsors were a huge part of that success and we would be honored and most grateful for you to join us.
We have a team of more than 20 volunteers who are beginning to work on the sixth annual toy drive (referred to as SJ6 or Santa Jam 2016) which includes local, regional, and even national artists some years. The event this year will run from Dec. 3rd – 11th.

Welcome to Florida Rocks! your one stop for music cruises, large concerts, and the local and regional artists performing at the events. This is also an ever growing collection of the greatest bands playing to live audiences in North and Central Florida. We firmly believe that those legends who paved the way for the scene we have now should also be honored for their ground breaking achievements and success, so there is a section dedicated to them as well.
On this site you will find links to awesome concerts, as well as videos, biographies, and pictures of Florida Bands and Artists. You can also discover local bands from the past in the 'Band Archives' area. Look for the page of your favorite Florida rock bands and musicians, or find info on a band you've only heard about, and long live rock and roll!
Florida Rocks! helps promote both indoor and outdoor shows which showcase talent within the state. We also work with national and international touring rock bands to recommend the best venues for their genre and draw, aligning them with great promoters and assist with booking shows in the Southeastern United States, and also guiding bands to the best internet radio stations, commercial radio stations, social media outlets, and webzines for increased publicity.
