Ben Rosenblum Feb. 1
Ben Rosenblum, the internationally touring, multi-instrumentalist has been described as a talent not to be missed. Rosenblum combines his modern, melodic sensibility with his broad knowledge of a variety of musical lineages from the past one hundred years.
Drawn from an eclectic repertoire which includes selections from the jazz and popular music traditions, as well as global music influences from South America, Eastern Europe, Ireland and the Caribbean. The band never repeats the same program twice in a row – every evening is a unique experience shaped by the audience and the setting. Foulds Theatre at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers will be the perfect venue for An Intimate Night of Jazz.
The concert is set for Wednesday, Feb. 1 with doors opening at 6 p.m. and Ben taking the stage at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25.
Patchouli Feb. 4
Live music continues at the Alliance for the Arts, and what better backdrop for a performance than the gorgeous Florida sky? Patchouli is an award-winning folk festival headliner and Public Radio favorite with pure, sparkling lead vocals and beautiful harmonies. Reserve your tickets now for Saturday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m.
“The Landscape of Guitar” is a groundbreaking art and music production. Animated paintings are sung to life as guitar birds fly over rolling guitar rivers and vivid guitar worlds in stunning HD.
Patchouli is well known for their transcendent vocal chemistry and that’s not all folks. They are multi-disciplinary multi-instrumentalists. An extraordinary bond is immediately apparent as two guitars merge into one acoustic wall of sound and their innovative, percussive flat-picking and hybrid fingerstyle techniques leave even astute listeners wondering where the drummer is.
Pre-sale seating is limited to 132 and is first come, first serve.
