BRADENTON BEACH – There will be a Tribute to Robert Herman concert on Sunday, Jan. 28, from 1-5 p.m. at The Center of Anna Maria Island, 407 Magnolia, Anna Maria. Herman died unexpectedly on Dec. 19, 2017.
Over the years, Herman strived to expose local musicians to the public, promoting the Island music that was written and performed by them. His partner, Casey Hoffman, has said she would carry on the work at AMI Radio.
There will be food, refreshments, music and reminiscing at the tribute. At a gathering shortly after Herman died, many artists praised him for airing their music and giving them the confidence to perform in public.
Food sponsors include the Ugly Grouper, Scott’s Deli, Island Time and Bridge Street Bistro. Admission is free, but contributions are welcome to help promote and preserve local music on the Island and in Manatee and Sarasota counties.
