On Sunday is the FREE Ralphfest wrap up party at The Lucky Lure Bar with Miami’s Juke providing the music. The doors open at 6 p.m. for the party.

The first two Ralphfest music festivals were held in the fall but this year’s event was moved February to coincide with the trial of the man accused of Ameduri’s murder. After going on trial last week, the man was found guilty of many charges stemming from the attempted robbery, including first degree murder.

Ralphfest is a great opportunity to not only support live local music, but a chance for local music fans to help out the community as well. Keep updated on the Ralph Ameduri official web site.
