  1. My wife and I are possibly relocating to the Orlando area. What is the scene like there for cover bands? I am going to visit this week. Any good places to check out bands this Friday?

    Might be worth asking in the Florida Bassists thread...or check through the recent Hurricane Irma threads to see who lives there and ask them.

    Good luck!

    I know the Bahama Breeze chain hires bands - reggae/jimmy buffet style. Many locations in FLA and a few just in Orlando. That's a place I seem to migrate to when I'm in the area. Many cocktail-fuelled singalong type evenings.

    @Mantis Tobaggan may have some insight for Orlando. In general, Florida cities have a great bar scene for cover bands. Even in Bradenton we have local bars and occasional outdoor block parties that feature (mostly) cover bands.

    The only think I know about Orlando is Bass Central. That's the only reason I went through that town.

    I play in a metal band based in Orlando and live in Tampa so I cannot be much help. I heard that cover acts that play at Disney are actually employed by Disney. JimmyM may know more, he is central FL and plays in a cover band.
