What a phenomenal inaugural year! Settled on the coastline of Mexico, the Hard Rock Riviera Maya was the perfect host for The Avett Brothers At The Beach. As the event unfolded, the air sparked with waves of laughter, smiles all around, and non-stop dancing. We were treated to three spectacular performances from The Avett Brothers, plus one show each from Band of Horses, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, Lake Street Dive, and The Devil Makes Three.
Even though we arrived as strangers, awe-inspiring openers Lake Street Dive brought us all together singing in unison with their incredible renditions of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Lola”. Along with other great musical memories like Brandi Carlile’s powerhouse performance of “Folsom Prison Blues” and duet with The Avett Brothers on “Murder in the City”, there was no escaping the musical greatness that was taking place in Riviera Maya!
What really made Avett Brothers At The Beach so unforgettable was the unique activities that took place throughout the day. Joe Kwon of The Avett Brothers raised our culinary skills up a notch by hosting a Mexican cooking class, Seth & Scott Avett sat us all down at the Stairway to Heaven to teach an intimate Songwriting Workshop, and many more great activities in-between.
