It's that time of year again, grab some friends, gas up your boats/jet skis, dust off your kayaks, pack a cooler, prep the Jell-O shots and head out to Big Hickory Island for a fun day on the water. Located just north of the Bonita Beach Club, around 26*22'.189 N and 81*51'.960 W, this proved to be a good spot last year during the 420 Sandbar Party. There is plenty of space for boats of any size, a huge sandbar (not oyster beds), and clean flowing water without a dangerous current.

*****the only way to get there is by water*****

There are no food vendors or medical staff on hand, so pack accordingly and party responsibly... Don't trash where you splash!!

Sister Hazel Live

Friday, May 26 at 8 PM - 10 PM

Southwest Performing Arts Center

11515 Bonita Beach Road SE, Bonita Springs, Florida 34135

 

It starts with a lighter in the dark, held high by a true believer whose favorite band is telling his story onstage.

Multiply that by thousands of other fans in that venue and thousands more that same night in venues across America. Each one of those lights testifies to the power of music to touch a listener’s soul.

Sister Hazel has been there. For more than 20 years, these five friends have built the kind of musical communication that comes only with time, talent and commitment. From bars and clubs back home in Gainesville, Florida, to theaters, arenas, college campuses and open-air festivals, they’ve seen audiences light up the night like seas of stars.

But they’ve been on the other side too. Bassist Jett Beres remembers the first time he heard guitarist/singer/songwriter Andrew Copeland’s lyric, “I’m just a kid from Gainesville watching Petty with my lighter in the dark,” for his song “Something To Believe In.”

“It gave me chills,” Beres says. “It’s who we were. It’s who we still are. It’s the beauty of music.”

His bandmates agreed — and thus their new album harks back to the roots of their story through its title, Lighter In The Dark. Recorded in Nashville’s Tin Ear Studio and produced by their longtime engineer and Nashville studio fixture Chip Matthews, the album affirms the band’s longstanding ties to Music City, which date back to 2005 and include collaborations with all-star songwriters Lee Brice, Luke Laird and Hillary Lindsey, sessions with production heavyweights Garth Fundis and Scott Parker, guest appearances by Pat Buchanan, Tom Bukovac, Steve Hinson, and other local session aces.
