Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs Hosts Two Outstanding World-Touring Americana Bands

Bluegrass & Roots
in Bonita!

Saturday, Feb 2, 2019 ~ 8pm
John Jorgenson 
Bluegrass Band
Facebook Event Page
J2B2 is an all-star bluegrass supergroup featuring four legendary, award-winning musicians – John Jorgenson on acoustic guitar, mandolin and vocals; Herb Pedersen on banjo, acoustic guitar and vocals; Mark Fain on bass; and Patrick Sauber on acoustic guitar and vocals – delivering bluegrass like no one has ever heard it before. The band’s undeniable live shows have received stellar reviews and have the bluegrass world buzzing. The four combine forces to form a spot-on union of impeccable musicianship, incomparable songwriting, incredible harmony vocals (a fresh twist combining bluegrass with elements of West Coast folk rock) and seasoned showmanship. This is the “high lonesome sound” of American roots music at its finest.


Saturday, Feb 9, 2019 ~ 8pm
Chatham County Line
Facebook Event Page
Based on looks alone, Chatham County Line conjures a sepia-toned timelessness by huddling around a single microphone on stage, playing traditional string band instrumentation while clad in suits and ties. But for nearly two decades, the Raleigh, NC-based outfit has consistently crafted top-notch, original modern acoustic music that draws upon American roots forefathers like bluegrass inventor Bill Monroe and folk innovator John Hartford while acknowledging its own members’ backgrounds in rock ‘n’ roll bands. 

From elegant European concert halls to large American folk festivals, Chatham County Line has become a fixture on both sides of the Atlantic, where the musical relationships fostered by its consistent line-up are apparent through an unspoken chemistry that allows the freedom for improvisational flashes that seem as polished as the rest of its set. For a veteran ensemble that’s long made music on its own terms, perhaps its toughest task is now choosing which of the many gems from its seven albums get to shine in a given performance.

AT
Hinman Auditorium
10150 Bonita Beach Road
Bonita Springs, FL 34135
artcenterbonita.org  (239)495-8989

“The Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs is committed to enrich the culture of our diverse community by providing opportunities for artistic expression, education and appreciation in a supportive and nurturing environment.”

*Americana is contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rockfolk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw.

Reverend Raven & The Chain Smokin' Altar Boys on Tour in Florida in February

View as web page.
The Rev Returns!
Only One Swing Through Florida
this Season, So Don't Miss Out!

Reverend Raven
and the Chain Smoking Altar Boys
Featuring Westside Andy

Bringing crowds to their feet at the hardest to please and sophisticated
night clubs in their Midwest regional base and tours mostly covering
the eastern US and Caribbean, Reverend Raven and the Chain
Smoking Altar Boys play traditional blues, straight up with a big
dose of passion. With smoking grooves dug deep by Craig Panosh 
and P.T. Pedersen, served up with hot harmonica and smooth
stinging guitar they play original songs peppered with nods to
Slim Harpo, Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers, Billy Boy Arnold,
Junior Wells and the three Kings. Born and raised on the
south side of Chicago, the Reverend has been playing the blues
since 1971 when he first saw Freddie King play at the Kinetic
Theatre in Chicago. After a 15-year hitch in the Navy, he moved
to Milwaukee where he began a long friendship and collaboration
with Madison Slim, long time harmonica player for Jimmy Rogers.
Since 2015, the band has featured Westside Andy on harmonica.
Hohner lists him as an endorser alongside Rod Piazza, Toots
Thielemans, and Corky Siegel, among many other greats.
