The Payne Brothers are widely known as one of the best and most versatile blues bands in Florida...they'll back up all of the contestants throughout the show. The event begins at noon and usually goes til 9PM...food, prizes, great drinks and of course continuous live music will occur!!! We are pleased to announce that international recording artist and harmonica virtuoso Brandon Santini and band will return to Beachside Tavern for our 14th show! Brandon will perform as the votes are being tallied and will close the show after the announcement of the 14th Annual Florida Harmonica Champion. I'm also pleased to announce that the great Rockin Jake will grace our stage for a special performance at the end of the competition!


Every year Adam and I are blown away by the players, attendees and volunteers that make this the best harmonica festival anywhere. As always, we are indebted to Mark and Heather Dam, who have made the Beachside Tavern one of the premier music venues on the US east coast. Come join us October 19th at the Hub on Canal Street for our pre-show at 6 PM...and then Sunday October 20th, 2019 at Beachside Tavern...for the 14th Annual Florida Harmonica Championships!!
