SoFla, So Good

A look back at the year in music

9. Between the Hard Rock and a marketplace. Clearly Riverwalk, Mizner Park, and CityPlace didn't offer enough brand-named shoppertainment for SoFla's acquisitive set. The solution: the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and its adjacent Seminole Paradise (damn, that's a mouthful) open a concert venue that lures lumbering casino-crowd faves like Hall and Oates, Cheap Trick, and Frank Sinatra Jr. at top-dollar ticket prices. Also on the property, two velvet-roped dance clubs attract international DJ talent. And watch out for the 5,600-seat Hard Rock Live opening in June. The new Hard Rock motto: "Love All, Serve All, Deal Me In." (JZ)

10. Spread the jam. Back in January, Jam Cruise I and II amassed a boatload of national talent and pulled off two successful oceangoing musical extravaganzas. The Langerado Music Festival followed right behind, stepping up with its best, most diverse lineup yet. Expect more fans to come out of the woodwork next year and more bands to make the trek south as the jam scene blossoms in South Florida. (JZ)
