Freebird Live originally opened as Freebird Cafe’ on September 8th 1999. Offering the combination of a music themed eating establishment adorned with a rare private collection of Lynyrd Skynyrd memorabilia and a live music venue all under one roof. Serving lunch and dinner with continuous recorded music and also featuring live music 7 nights a week. A few years later the Cafe’ was phased out and the venue was renovated to accommodate larger bands. With our total focus on live music, the name was changed to “Freebird Live”. Today, most of the Lynyrd Skynyrd memorabilia has been replaced with various music related decor.
After 16 years in Jacksonville Beach, Freebird Live has evolved into one of the country’s premier live music venues. Showcasing a spectrum of national and regional touring artists, as well as, select inspiring local artists. Freebird Live provides a unique up close experience with the performing artists along with a variety of genres to satisfy your musical interests.
Freebird Live features the latest state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems. A non-smoking two story music venue with a current capacity of 700 with 2 full bars, a unique railed balcony overlooks the ground floor stage. In addition, the venue features an open-air, exterior wrap around balcony designated as the smoking area. Freebird Live is a general admission, standing room only music venue.
