The concert is organized by the local nonprofit Save Our Musicians, which staged a show by pop star Gwen Stefani in April at the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach. It hopes to raise $500,000 from Bryan's show to donate to Bak Middle School of the Arts and Dreyfoos School of the Arts.
The concert will be at 7 p.m. Nov. 18 and taken place in a parking lot off State Road A1A along the waterfront just north of Tequesta, between Tiki 52 restaurant and Blue Pointe Bar and Grill in southeastern Martin County.

Save Our Musicians expects to sell over 2,500 tickets, which will include both seats at the 250 circle dinner tables that will be set up on the grounds, as well as standing-room-only tickets.
Tickets are scheduled to go on sale on the saveourmusicians.org website by 3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28, said Dennis Cunningham, Save Our Musicians chief executive officer.
Tickets at the circle dinner tables — which include a full sit-down meal — will start at $1,500 and run as high as $3,000 for those closest to the stage. Standing-room-only tickets will sell for $1,000 and include optional add-ons for food and drinks.
Cunningham had the idea for the venue’s location while taking his boat out the Indian River in Jupiter one day.
“I've lived in Jupiter for 30 years and I love living here. We're always looking for unique places for our concerts, and I thought I would really love to have a show by the water,” Cunningham said. “We talked to the owners of the parking lot, and that’s when it all came together.”

Cunningham says that Luke Bryan is doing Save Our Musicians “a big favor” by playing their benefit concert.
“We tend to pick artists that we feel share our same perspective on helping musicians,” Cunningham said. “Luke Bryan is such a kind person and everything he is about is great. We’ve done our best to bring in the top talent.”
The Georgia-born Bryan has recorded more than 30 No. 1 hit songs and been named Entertainer of the Year by the Academy of Country Music. He recently performed a residency in Las Vegas.
