We have created a map of events that goes from the internationally acclaimed bands to the best-kept secrets in Miami.

Gold Dust Lounge is a veteran at playing outdoors as the resident band at The Standard, Miami Beach and at Wynwood Art Walk since 2009. The group’s music is an eclectic mix of the best that the local neighborhood can give us: acid surf, punk rock, jazz and spaghetti western. South Florida-native guitarist and songwriter Richard Mofsky leads this musical project that integrates a varied range of musical influences. The band is composed of seasoned musicians able to merge the free outdoors playing with unexpected melodies and down-tempo moods.
