Big Band Reggae Continues 2013 Bruce T. Gora Sunset Concert Series at the Alliance

resolvers1Emerging from the vibrant east coast beach town of Deerfield Beach, The Resolvers have quickly become one of the South Florida music scene’s premier alternative reggae acts.  The 10-member band captures the essence of the classic reggae sound: natural acoustic percussion, deep bass grooves, worldly drum rhythms, tasty vintage keyboards, bluesy guitar licks and multi-part vocal harmonies…then blend it with modern songwriting craftsmanship to create their own familiar-yet-purely-original take on world music. They will continue the Alliance for the Arts’ 2013 Bruce T. Gora Sunset Concert Series on Sunday, March 10.

The Resolvers are now in the process of recording their first full-length album, all while continuing on a demanding performance schedule of more than 120 shows a year. After releasing their first 5-song EP in 2008 they made their international debut at the 2009 Jamaican Jazz & Blues Festival, followed by a California tour where they were warmly welcomed. They were selected to play at Florida’s largest festival, Sunfest 2009 and were voted to play the first annual DubFest. They shared the stage with many international artists such as Matisyahu, The Wailers, Yellowman, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Badfish, SOJA, and Mishka among others.

resolversGates open at 4:00pm & concerts begin at 5:00pm.  The Nosh Truck will be selling food, but guests are encouraged to bring their own coolers, lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy a picnic on the Margaret Morrow Frizzell Amphitheater lawn.  General admission tickets are $20.  Pre-sale tickets are $15 for Alliance Members, and are available at the Alliance for the Arts, located on the corner of Colonial and McGregor in Fort Myers.  Proceeds from the concert series will benefit Alliance Education and Outreach Programming.  The 2013 Bruce T. Gora Sunset Concert Series is sponsored in part by LCEC & The News Press Media Group.
