There is a lot of live music on the horizon this weekend. Much of it will take place during the day, and some of it will be quite family-friendly.
Fager’s Island in Ocean City will host its Benefit For Hank charity event from 2-6 p.m. Saturday, March 10 ($40). Tunes will be provided by Tranzfusion, Opposite Directions, Kevin Poole, DJ BK and DJ Wax.

Proceeds will go to the family of Tranzfusion guitarist Hank Koenig; they are rebuilding their historic home in Berlin after it suffered major fire damage during a December blaze. Admission includes food and beverages. Tranzfusion is a staple of the OC cover band scene, and is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year.
As per tradition, the town of Milton will host its St. Patrick’s Day Parade a week ahead of the actual holiday. The 11th annual parade will occur downtown at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 11. Irish Eyes Milton will once again serve as the after-party headquarters, with Celtic music by The Hit the Bottle Boys at 3:30 p.m. and Mike & the Fellow Travelers at 4 p.m. The restaurant’s sister location in Lewes, Irish Eyes at Anglers, will host a celebration on St. Patrick’s Day (Saturday, March 17).
In downtown Rehoboth Beach, the Pond is continuing its acoustic Sunday Funday music series. At 2 p.m. Sunday March 11, the restaurant and bar will present the debut of the Wiedmann Family Band. Vocalist Luke (from Electric Smoke) and bassist Pete (from Love Seed Mama Jump) are brothers, and they will be joined on stage by their young offspring. Guitarist Liam is Pete’s son, while drummer Michael is Luke’s son. (Confused yet?) The group will play classic rock, pop and alternative songs from today and yesteryear.
Also in Rehoboth, the Dogfish Head brewpub has a free concert marketed to the over-21 set on tap for 10 p.m. Saturday, March 10. Richmond, Va.-based Jouwala Collective is a worldbeat act, which specializes in African music, but also throws in shades of jazz, reggae, funk and electronic music.
In Dewey Beach, The Starboard nightclub will open for the season on Thursday, March 15, with a 10 p.m. performance by its house band, Laura Lea & Tripp Fabulous. The days after that will feature live music galore, and we’ll have more on that next week in The Frequency’s St. Patrick's roundup.
