  • Live Music / JJ and the Florida Oranges

    JJ & The Florida Oranges is a folk/Americana quintet; formed from friends in the neighborhood of Lake Worth Beach, passing the time during the Covid 19 Lockdown. With instruments like banjo, fiddle, cello, four-part harmonies, and lively percussion, JJ & TFO quickly became the life of any gathering they were attending. Today, the group continues to delight the crowds at events, local bars, and cocktail parties with folk-singalong covers of favorites ranging from classic country/Americana, to modern indie-folk, to even reimagined top-20 pop tunes.
