A new blues concert series will be held on Sundays throughout November at Coconut Falls Tiki Bar and Grill in Fort Myers.
The series launches Sunday, Nov. 1 with Albert Castiglia. JP Soars will perform Sunday, Nov. 8. The second half of the month will feature Frank Bang on Nov. 22 and Damon Fowler on Nov. 29. All four shows run from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 with $5 off your entree purchase.
As most artists will attest, the most unexpected circumstance can spark artistic inspiration. That’s a fact that hasn’t been lost on singer, songwriter and guitarist extraordinaire Albert Castiglia. With his latest album, the aptly named Masterpiece, he celebrates an unforeseen triumph — a connection with a daughter he never knew he had. The result is a work that’s both personal and provocative all at the same time.
Castiglia calls this the most meaningful album he’s ever made. “My daughter finding me and opening up my world to an additional family, including two grandchildren, brought out the deepest material I’ve ever created,” he notes, “along with my wife, they were my muses.” Indeed, songs such as “Keep On Swinging,” “Masterpiece” and “Bring on the Rain” address the unexpected emotions that infused his psyche with the discovery of a family he never knew.
J.P. Soars is soaring high, touring the world after releasing a new studio album last fall, Let Go of the Reins, produced by Tab Benoit on Benoit’s Whiskey Bayou label. Soars was also nominated for “Blues Rock Artist of the Year” in the 40th annual Blues Music Awards, alongside blues music heavyweights Billy Gibbons, Eric Gales, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Tinsley Ellis, rounding out the blues rock category.
Coconut Falls Tiki Bar and Grill is located at 17200 S. Tamiami Trail in Fort Myers.
