More Live Music in West Palm Beach

There's nothing better than sipping a cold beer overlooking the water and listening to live music. And fortunately we found two great spots in the West Palm Beach area. The first is The Crab House, located on the Jupiter inlet with direct views of the Jupiter lighthouse. The lighthouse is interesting in that it is the same latitude as the Hope Town Lighthouse in the Bahamas and only 60 miles apart. After a day swimming we headed to the restaurant for happy hour and found
Jason Montero unloading equipment for his regular Friday show (6:00-8:00). We had last seen Montero the previous month during his regular Wednesday series at the Lake Worth Rum Shack, where he is accompanied by Shauna Sweeney. As a solo artist, Montero has a more rockish-bluesy sound - although he occasionally has to sneak in a Jimmy Buffet to satisfy audience requests. When paired with Ms. Sweeney they alternate between classic rock and softer Sarah McLachlan type songs. Regardless they are extremely entertaining - particularly with Sweeney banging away on her African djembe drum. This is how we found them Sunday at the Old Key Lime House in Lantana where the duo play every Sunday from 3:00 to 8:00. Can't think about a better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon - Kalick beer, intercoastal waterway views, and great music - see video below.
