Big Chill Beach Club announces summer concert series

The second season of Big Chill Beach Club’s Summer MixTape Concert Series has arrived.

“Between our unique Sunset Celebration and great view of the striking Indian River Inlet Bridge and Atlantic Ocean, there is no better way to spend a summer night!” said Jimmy Williamson, assistant general manager of the Beach Club.

This summer’s lineup consists of a variety of artists as a soundtrack that Williamson said will make customers want to chill out while enjoying the views and laidback environment.

“Our restaurant serves as a home-base of sorts for families and singles alike — just dust off the sand… or not, and enjoy!” said Josh Grapski, managing partner for La Vida Hospitality Group.

The multi-deck restaurant offers 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, and the Indian River Inlet and Indian River Bay.

“This concert series really embodies everything we are about at Big Chill,” said brand manager Matt Garbutt. “It’s a truly unique concert experience.” Tickets for all of the events are now available at Big Chill Beach Club, and online at

• July 23 — reggae band Pepper. Pepper is a three-piece rock band originally from Hawaii, now based in San Diego. The band consists of vocalist/guitarist Kaleo Wassman, vocalist/bassist Bret Bollinger and drummer Yesod Williams. Since the band’s formation, they have released seven studio albums, as well as two live albums.

• July 24 — beach rock duo The Wheeland Brothers. Nate and Travis, the Wheeland Brothers, are two Southern California brothers who grew up in Orange County, “surfing, scarfing down hole-in-the-wall Mexican food and jamming around beach bonfires. They combine fun, catchy melody and lyrics with the cool attitude and positive energy of reggae, as well as the down-to-earth, organic honesty of acoustic rock, ukulele lullabies and flip flop hip-hop. Sunshine music inspired by waves, hangin’ with friends, and dreaming of distant shores.”

The duo is returning to Big Chill Beach Club’s after being its first live entertainment two summers ago.

“We heard you, so we wanted to invite them back again this summer,” Williamson.

• Aug. 27 — classic rock from Max Weinberg’s Jukebox. “Yes, that Max Weinberg,” Williamson said, noting the musician as “the driving rhythmic force propelling of Bruce Sprinsteen’s E Street Band for 43 years,” and that he is also known for his 17-year stint as the bandleader and comedic foil to talk show host Conan O’Brian.

“A truly interactive experience, Weinberg invites the audience to create, in real time, the set list he and his crack four-piece group will play that night. Performing songs from the glory days of rock-and-roll … guests get to choose from a video menu of over 200 songs — everything from the Beatles to the Stones to Bruce & the E Street Band’s biggest hits — and hear the group play them the way they want to hear them played!”
