B.B. King - A Retrospective

SWFL Arts and Entertainment

It's been slightly less than a month since his passing and the world has certainly lost one of greatest guitarists to ever play the Blues. With more than 15 Grammy awards to his credit and a string of accolades that is nothing short of amazing, B.B. King has long been considered one of the Top 100 Guitarists in the world. Because his music and personality touched so many persons, B.B. King will be remembered for many things! While guitar and blues aficionados will certainly remember many of his hits, most of the world will always recall his hit; "The Thrill is Gone". Grammy Hall of Fame Awards are only given to recordings that are at least 25 years old and considered to have 'qualitative or historical significance'. 'The Thrill is Gone' received that honorable designation in 1998.

The Cultural Park Theatre

SWFL Arts and Entertainment

Cape Coral is a community that is rich in many ways. As southwest Floridians, we enjoy more days of sunshine per year than so many other places. If beaches, sunshine and warm weather are for you, then it might be difficult to find a better destination. But if you're a fan of southwest Florida Arts and Culture, then you've certainly heard of Cape Coral's Cultural Park Theatre. Right? Well, if you can't say that you've attended a show there, it's clear that your social calendar may need some updating. As a 49-year-old entity, the Cultural Park Theatre stands as a powerful testament to the fact that high quality, worthwhile entertainment is alive and well in Cape Coral.

Robert Rauschenberg : 1925 - 2008

SWFL Arts and EntertainmentLast week saw the passing of legendary artist, Robert Rauschenberg. For the art world, it was the loss of a man who was considered to be one of this century's preeminent masters. Perhaps most famous for his "Combines" of the 1950s, in which non-traditional materials and objects were employed, he was more notably a genuine friend, philanthropist, mentor and inspiration to the people closest to him. Having been a resident of Captiva Island here in southwest Florida, his contributions here will leave an indelible memory for the many local residents who loved him.

Care to Dance ?

SWFL Arts and EntertainmentDancing is an art form. It is pure expression as well as wonderful exercise. Many people don't dance and can provide a host of reasons for failing to do so. Many persons are simply not rhythmic. Some don't want to be seen dancing, as they are embarassed to share their movements among others. For those who enjoy dancing, the benefits and pleasure they derive is immeasurable.
