THE PALM BEACH POST SUNDAY ON THE WATERFRONT
Sunday, May 19, 2019
4 – 7 p.m. FREE | Meyer Amphitheatre, 105 Evernia St, West Palm Beach, FL 33401
“Adam Wakefield” (Alternative Country/Southern Rock) www.adamwakefieldmusic.com
Think “New Hampshire” and let the images flow. Cozy inns. Fireplaces. Vivid colors of fall. Crisp, clean air. Deep blue lakes. Adam Wakefield is known for vocals that jolt these lyrics to life with a unique immediacy and intensity. What makes Wakefield different? First, it’s his varied roots: Memphis soul, rock ’n’ roll, New Orleans funk, even jazz and classical, pre-bro country — pretty much all music that speaks from the heart.
A finalist during season 10 of The Voice, Wakefield is that rare singer/songwriter who can bridge the personal and the universal, who can sadly laugh and softly ache through an uncommonly poetic lyric and performance. Working independently, Wakefield hit the top of the iTunes chart with “Lonesome, Broken and Blue,” the original song he performed during the season finale for The Voice. Now he is coming to the West Palm Beach waterfront to give the audience a show to remember.
Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to this outdoor event. For more information, please visit Wpb.org/events or follow the City of West Palm Beach on Facebook @CityofWPB, on Twitter @westpalmbch or on Instagram @westpalmbch.
