Tunes by the Dunes is back!

It’s time to get jiggy on the beach. Or if you don’t love dancing like a dork as much as I do, it is time to sit back with your toes in the sand and listen to some sweet live entertainment.

For the 11th year in a row, the Navarre Beach Area Chamber of Commerce kicked off their annual free summer concert series Thursday, May 31.

This concert series featuring a wide variety of music genres including classic and new, fun beats. Along with the fun music and dancing will be a variety of family friendly booths and the occasional beach ball rain.

The Tunes by the Dunes concert series takes place each Thursday evening at the Navarre Beach Sand Crab Pavilion just east of the Navarre Beach Fishing Pier as the sunsets over the sand dunes of coastline.

Tunes by the Dunes will offer a lineup of 14 free outdoor concerts every Thursday from May 31 through Aug. 30 in the parking area and sands north of the dunes.

Each Thursday event, from 7 to 9 p.m., will feature a different genre of music, including jazz, reggae, Southern rock, country, oldies and more. The lineup includes bands such as Lektric Mullet, Touch of Gray, Still Standing and The Rowdies.

Spectators are encouraged to bring their beach blankets and lawn chairs for a night of free family entertainment. There will be a dance area and concessions operated by local restaurants.

Smoking is prohibited on the beach, and pets are not allowed.  Glass containers are also not permitted. But coolers with some favorite treats from the local store are allowed.
