VERO BEACH - The Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach has two free outdoor concerts this weekend. The theater also has indoor, ticketed comedy shows.

On Fri., Jan. 15, Minglewood plays at Riverside from 5:45-9:30 p.m. Minglewood is a tribute band in the truest sense of the word, as most of their songs are Grateful Dead covers. Minglewood also plays a mix of eclectic 1970s covers including Jefferson Airplane, Linda Rondstadt, and The Band.

Band members Jack Alber, Scott Ferguson, Chris Hiser, Bill Turechek, and Chuck Hollis call Vero Beach their home.

On Sat., Jan. 16, Joe Reid & The Heartland Band play from 5:45-9:30 p.m. Joe Reid is an Ocala-based artist who fronts a five-piece band that covers George Strait and other country stars, plus some southern and classic rock.

Both shows are three sets, rain-or-shine. You must bring a face covering and wear it. You may remove it when seated.

Complimentary tickets are required for entry, with a limit of four tickets per household. A photo ID is required to pick up will-call tickets at the entry gate. If all tickets are taken, check back, as additional tickets are released later.
