Members of the Fort Myers-based band Cobress join us to mark the release of their first EP, “Stage Stomp.”  The music of Cobress delivers a fierce energy with their unique fusion of punk, heavy rock, garage, industrial and electronica.  Their high-energy live performances include jumping, screaming, howling and even a bit of burlesque, evoking everything from rage to arousal.  The band consists of Frankie Colt (guitarist/vocalist), Colin O’Brien (bassist/vocalist), Louis Calavera (drums/percussion) and Xid (guitarist/keyboard/programmer).  We’ll sit down with the husband and wife team of Frankie Colt and Colin O’Brien ahead of their EP release performance March 29 at HOWL Gallery.

The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in Fort Myers presents the grand finale of this season’s Chamber Concert Series March 30-31 with the American Virtuosi Concert and American Virtuosi Gala.  These events, now in their tenth year, will feature chamber music from several of today’s top classical music performers including violinist Peter Winograd, cellist Andres Diaz and pianist Wendy Chen.  Saturday’s Gala event includes a four-course meal prepared by G3 Catering and serves as a fundraiser for the Art Center’s Eclectic Education programs.  We’ll get a preview of the events and hear live classical performances from special guest artists Anton Miller (violinist) and Rita Porfiris (violist).  We’ll also hear from violist and Executive Director/CEO of the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center Jim Griffith.

My guest this episode is Lydia Black. I would say she’s a self-described “nonprofit junkie,” because that’s what her bio says, but in the interest of full disclosure I know her well enough to write her bio without notes...as a matter of fact, for quite a few years, part of my job was to help her write her bios.
