The Fort Myers Beach Friends of the Arts Annual Winter Concert Series last concert actually danced, swayed and created an otherwise magical night at Fish Tale Marina and Santini Marina Plaza last Thursday Jan 26. Al Holland and Friends returned to The Propeller Lounge at Fish Tale Marina to a crowd of over 200. Holland, a former member of the Platters, performed two hours worth of Motown, Blues, & Pop Oldies for a crowd that seemed to know most of the words to most of the songs. The Friends of the Arts uses the concert series as fundraisers to support display and performing artists in the local community. Featured events that The Friends help sponsor include November’s Fort Myers Beach Art Association’s Paint the Beach Competition and April’s Fort Myers Beach Annual Film Festival.
The next Winter Concert Event is Feb 24 from 7-9pm at the Propeller Lounge at Fish Tale Marina. California Surf, Inc. featuring LA’s finest musicians who all have a long history of touring and recording as former band members of the legendary Beach Boys, including Christian Love, son of original Beach Boy Mike Love.
