The Center for the Arts in Bonita Springs continues to offer wonderful music events in February.
“Live from Laurel Canyon – Songs and Stories of American Folk Rock” is a 90-minute retrospective of music and stories of some of the most influential artists who lived in Laurel Canyon between 1965 and 1975. The show is Feb. 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Hinman Auditorium.
The Kruger Brothers perform Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Hinman Auditorium. The Kruger Brothers’ remarkable discipline, creativity and their ability to infuse classical music into folk music has resulted in a unique sound that has made them a fixture within the world of acoustic music. The honesty of their writing has since become a hallmark of the trio’s work.
America’s Sweethearts will be on the Hinman Auditorium stage Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. America has loved the swinging sounds of female close-harmony groups even before The Andrews Sisters hit the airwaves with “Bei Mir Bist Du Schön” in 1937, but audiences will hear those great vintage songs with fresh ears when America’s Sweethearts take the stage in their fresh and vibrant show.
Dan Miller – Lew DelGatto Quintet will perform Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Moe Auditorium. Join Dan Miller and Lew Del Gatto as they celebrate the legacy and music of pianist Horace Silver. Horace Silver was one of the most important composers and band-leaders in the history of jazz music. Horace brought together the modern sounds of Charlie Parker’s Bebop and fused it with the music of the gospel church creating his own brand of funky, blues-infused, soulful jazz music.
Paul Thorn is scheduled to play Hinman Auditorium Feb. 16 at 7:30 p.m. Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career, pleasing crowds with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern American, yet also speaking universal truths.
Among those who value originality, inspiration, eccentricity and character – as well as talent that hovers somewhere on the outskirts of genius, the story of Paul Thorn is already familiar. Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, signed with and been dropped by a major label, performed [on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet fully accessible music of our time.
Derina Harvey Band performs Feb. 27 at 8 p.m. at Hinman Auditorium. Fearless front-woman Derina Harvey leads this Celtic rock group, who are recent winners of the People’s Choice Award at the 2018 Edmonton Music Awards. The group offers a fresh take on traditional folk songs as well as an increasing amount of original material. The band has a rocky, rhythmic undertow; layered with guitars, fiddle, and topped by Derina’s powerful voice.
Both auditoriums are located at 10150 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs. For tickets and info, call 239-495-8989 or visit www.artcenterbonita.org
