Independent Jones is a privately-owned, premier events and entertainment company pushing the envelope and the standard of community events both for ourselves and our clients along the Gulf Coast of Florida.

“Realize Bradenton and Independent Jones have partnered since their founding in 2015. As a nonprofit organization that builds community and economic development, Realize Bradenton understands the importance of live music to bring people together and increase vibrancy. Independent Jones offers solid knowledge of the regional musicians and local venues and provides reliable event coordination services and talent acquisition. We are enthusiastic about how their success has helped accelerate the attractiveness of the 941 zip code.”

“Independent Jones has an obvious love and dedication for music and their local community. We worked with Independent Jones to transform our recording studio into an event space for a night. They were professional and fun to work with and the event was a success.  I look forward to planning our next event with Independent Jones.”
