Joyland has been a Florida favorite for 30 years, renown for county music themes and line dancing. It is a great night club to enjoy drinks while watching live music. The club was a live music staple in southwest Florida and saw early performances by some of country music’s biggest stars. Over the years, the Joyland stage was graced by artists such as Joe Nichols, Florida Georgia Line, Uncle Kracker, Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Montgomery Gentry and Trace Adkins.
The venue began in 1958 as an event pavilion at Joyland Amusement Park in Pinellas Park. Previous owner Rick Lambert’s family purchased it in 1987. The Bradenton club changed it’s locations several times before settling on the 15,000-square foot facility at 5520 14th St. W., in 1994. Since then the club became a regular concert hall stop for big name national country music acts. The previous owner retired and closed the club May 12, 2018. Joyland was purchased by Scott Serbin and Peter Mendelsohn, local country musicians who had frequently performed at Joyland. With over 20,000 Facebook Facebook followers, Joyland is one of the most popular live country music clubs in Sarasota and the surrounding southwest Florida region.
