The Freebird Live is a music venue located in Jacksonville Beach, FL. The venue was originally both a music venue and a restaurant, under the name Freebird Cafe. However, the location was renovated into a strictly music venue and renamed “Freebird Live” in order to emphasis this.

Freebird Live is a two story music venue located 1 block from the Atlantic Ocean in Jacksonville Beach, FL. Capacity of 700 including 2 full bars, a balcony overlooking the ground floor acoustically designed stage with dance floor and an additional exterior wrap around balcony.

The Freebird , as it is often called by locals, is known for giving a platform for acts ranging from nationally known to just starting out. The Freebird has been instrumental in the local music scene in Jacksonville, allowing such acts as The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Limp Bizkit to headline midweek shows before they were signed to a major label.

Freebird Live is owned and operated by Judy Van Zant, the widow of Lynyrd Skynyrd founding member and lead singer Ronnie Van Zant. It is also described as being “ground zero of the Lynyrd Skynyrd legacy”.

Artists and bands that have played Freebird Live include Gregg Allman, Mofro, and Willie Nelson.
