When the Manatee County Tourist Development Council voted Dec. 19, 2018, to make a $100,000 budget recommendation to the county to help fund a concert series in conjunction with two nonprofit venues, the lineup was just coming together.
The first two shows at the Center of Anna Maria Island sold out, and people are buzzing about the remaining concerts.
