The Green Parrot Bar has been named the Best Live Music Venue in Florida for 2010 by Florida Monthly Magazine. The announcement will appear in Florida Monthly Magazine’s September issue. The Green Parrot replaces Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park for the top spot.
“This is a real honor,” said Bar Manager John Vagnoni “We are pleased the hard work of the many people involved hasn’t gone unnoticed,” Vagnoni said. “With over eight thousand votes typically cast in most Best-of-Florida categories it appears we’ve been on somebody’s radar.”
“We were able to achieve this recognition not only because of our partnerships with both local and national talent but also because of our great Green Parrot staff and Green Parrot patrons. Patrons and staff who have continually supported our efforts and make the musicians so welcome and appreciated that those musicians strive to deliver their best performances when they step out on our stage. Not only does this audience response make musicians want to return to The Parrot again and again but it spreads the word among their peers that the Parrot customers and employees are among the best and most musically sophisticated anywhere ”
“We would like to thank all our staff here for their professionalism, thank musicians everywhere for enriching our lives, and mostly thanks to our patrons who repay us daily with their loyalty and enthusiasm. We promise to remain your “The Southernmost Center for Culture of All Kinds” and will continually strive to make the entertainment at The Green Parrot the best it can be. We are extremely pleased Florida Monthly Magazine has honored us in this way,” Vagnoni said.
