Friends of the Bandshell:

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 concerts for area residents and visiting tourists. Their goal is to make this a cultural force in the community, not only through entertainment, but also as an arts educational beacon shining on the Northeast Florida student population.

Their 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:
