In 1996, Friends of the Bandshell, Inc. a not-for-profit corporation, was formed with the specific goal of restoring this jewel of Daytona Beach and bringing back a repertoire of outstanding artists with live concerts for area residents and visiting tourists. Our goal is to make this a cultural force in the community, not only through free entertainment, but also as an arts educational beacon shining on our Northeast Florida student population.

Our mission is to develop the Bandshell into a first class outdoor performing arts center that will stimulate and educate the community with a variety of uplifting, cultural presentations aimed at entertaining and raising appreciation for continued use and preservation of a historic beachside treasure: The Daytona Beach Bandshell.

Friends of the Bandshell has successfully presented an array of performing artists from local high school and college groups to regional and nationally known professionals. Our goal is not only the preservation of the historic structure, but also to have the Bandshell become known as the prime Northeast Florida location for showcasing excellent talent.

The live concerts are made possible by corporate and individual sponsors, annual members' donations, Volusia County and Florida State grants, volunteers, City of Daytona Beach, corporations "in-kind" contributions, and audience donations.
