FORT MYERS, Fla. (September 15, 2011) – Shell Point Retirement Community will welcome the Barbary Coast Dixieland Band to perform on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 at 7:30pm. Tickets are required and the concert will take place in the Church Auditorium on The Island at Shell Point.





“The Barbary Coast Dixieland Band is such a popular group, and when we have had them perform on property in years past, they have received excellent reviews and attendance,” said Dawn Boren, director of resident life for Shell Point Retirement Community. “They always manage to get audience members toe-tapping to every song they play, and offer a vibrant energy that visitors can feel from the stage, so we are very happy to have them offer another wonderful performance.”

The Barbary Coast Dixieland Band has been performing for 40 years, was elected into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, and rated among the finest Dixieland Bands in the country. The band plays everywhere from paddleboats in Mississippi to Nagasaki, Japan. The group is comprised of six talented musicians who play 18 instruments, and who are such versatile musicians, that they occasionally swap instruments on stage without missing a note.
