Start the weekend early - come down the the "Grassy Strip" in front of the Madison Beach Hotel for their weekly Music & Art Series (music begins after 7). The GRASSY STRIP Music and Art Series is a complimentary celebration of live music performances along with a selection of regional artisans. This week's featured musician is Jeffrey Gaines. His hit single "In Your Eyes" was quickly picked up by adult contemporary stations across the United States. After years of building his reputation as a singer-songwriter, Gaines toured extensively as the opening act for Stevie Nicks on her North American tour.
