The Heights Foundation will host The Heights Party Band concert on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. at The Heights Center in Fort Myers. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The evening will include familiar and forgotten favorites, classic rock, country and a little “chaotic spontaneity.”
The party band is a group of rotating high-quality local musicians who call The Heights Center home for several concerts each year. Admission is $10 per person and includes complimentary appetizers and a cash bar. The event is sponsored by CRE Consultants and Entech.
The party band is led by Randy Thomas (formerly with Shania Twain, Allies and Sweet Comfort Band). He will head up a professional veteran rock, pop, and country jam. Randy Thomas is best known as the Grammy Award-winning songwriter of the crossover hit “Butterfly Kisses.”
“There are two sides to the band this year, the local side and the Nashville side,” Randy Thomas explains. “The locals include Kevin Kenworthy (formerly with Loretta Lynn) on vocals, keyboards and guitars. Another local, Rob Robinson (producer for Lynyrd Skynyrd), will contribute vocals, keys and guitar work. My Nashville buddies are Matt Chapman (formerly with Allies) on bass and Steve Latanation (Mark Collie, Agent Orange) on drums and vocals. I feel like I’m introducing my beloved old buddies to my beloved new buddies.”
Lori Thomas will also join on vocals. Randy and Lori Thomas perform the country club circuit in Naples and Fort Myers. “When we play country clubs they are dressy and fun, but they are private events,” said Lori Thomas. “The Heights Party Band is a chance to do a mix of singalongs with our friends. Everyone is invited.”
“This is a band that can pivot on a dime. Everyone is so professional, that the song choices are improvised,” said Randy Thomas. “ Any of us may start a song – unannounced – and the rest follow. The chaotic nature of this band makes it a lot of fun. We surprise ourselves every year!”
