Music Compound Family Fun Festival

BRADENTON, FL – On Saturday, January 14, local music school Music Compound will celebrate the opening of its Music Compound MAN location with a Family Fun Festival. From 12-4 p.m., guests can enjoy live music by students of all ages, bounce house, kids’ activities, a food truck, beer samples courtesy of Big Top Brewing Company, and tours of the facility. This event, which takes place from noon-4 p.m., is free and open to the public.

Music Compound opened its Bradenton location (located at 4740 SR64, just west of I-75 in the Braden River Business Park) this past summer, offering a two-week Introduction to Music summer camp in late July. The expansion was necessary as its Cattlemen location was fully booked.

“We had clients who were asking for us to consider a location in Manatee County for quite some time; we have students who commuted for years from Parrish and Lakewood Ranch,” Townsend says. “We invite anyone who is interested in music enrichment for themselves or their children to attend our Family Fun Festival to learn more about our programs.”

Music Compound MAN offers lessons for kids, including Kidz Rock and Modern Band programs for area youth wanting to grow musically and socially. These programs encourage team building, boost confidence, and build performance skills. Available adult programs include private and group lessons as well as jam sessions for those wanting to play music while meeting new people.

Admission is free but pre-registration is requested at
