FORT MYERS, Fla. (August 4, 2010) – Shell Point Retirement Community will welcome the Barbary Coast Dixieland Band to perform on February 17, 2011 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 has been to Shell Point in the past, and has always been one of the most popular performances we offer,” said Dawn Boren, director of resident life for Shell Point Retirement Community. “We are so happy to welcome them back to the community and know that this will be a sold out show. 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.”

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.

Tickets for this concert are $15 each, and the proceeds benefit the Rehabilitation Facility being added to the Larsen Pavilion Skilled Nursing Facility. Tickets are currently on sale, and to purchase tickets, or receive additional information about this concert or other concert series, please call (239) 454-2067.
