We are passionate about performing expertly-prepared live music that is not only pleasing to the ear, but also fulfills a dual mission:
We love to delight SWFL audiences with our outdoor concerts at Cambier Park in Naples and Riverside Park in Bonita Springs.
Donations collected during intermission help to offset performance costs, and the remainder are invested into our High School Music Education Program Annual Award fund which helps support music education in high schools.
Music sure has changed through time, hasn't it? Today's youth are bombarded with electronically-produced entertainment and overly-synthesized music.
Sure, digital music has its place (and some of it even sounds pretty amazing), but wouldn't it be a crying shame to see live music in its purest form, with all of its beautiful imperfections, fizzle away as older generations of musicians age and depart?
Our hope is that, by helping the young musicians in our area, we might inspire them to be the best they can be. In the process, perhaps they'll hear how cool our "retro music" really is and join us on stage one day.
There are several ways to support our dual mission! Choose the option (or options) you like best:
