Oak Street Stage is a local venue whose purpose is to connect artists and audiences through live music. Concerts are informal, with food and beverages available for purchase. Events are held at First Presbyterian Church on 2050 Oak Street, and content is family friendly and nonreligious in nature. Admission is free; voluntary donations are happily accepted. For more information, call (941) 955-8119 or see https://www.facebook.com/oakstreetstage/.

SRQ Revue is a lighthearted look at our beloved hometown, featuring some of the most sought-after instrumentalists and singers from the Sarasota-Manatee region.

Last year’s talent included such local luminaries as celebrated jazz singer Synia Carroll, stage and opera star Jenny Kim-Godfrey, and Venice entertainer extraordinaire Eric Watters. If you like Prairie Home Companion, you’ll love this slightly irreverent celebration of life on Planet SRQ. Join us for the best of what Sarasota has to offer — which is very good indeed!
