On Saturday, Aug 3 at the The Palladium at St. Petersburg College
in St. Pete, members of critic and audience favorite The Florida Björkestra
will convene for a closeup look at life, death, love and music through the lens of two geniuses Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake.
We’re calling this “A Special Florida Bjorkestra Evening.”
It has a nice ring to it.
Original FL Bjorkestra members Daniel Navarro
on bass and Dave Hamar
on drums return from touring the US with Mandy Harvey
, joining Jeremy Douglass
, Ed Woltil
and Whitney James
(and a small army of special guests from the larger ensemble) for an intimate performance in Palladium’s Side Door.
We’re going to cut a deep path through all of Ed’s favorite Nick Drake songs. And then change the scenery a bit with Whitney James singing from Joni Mitchell’s vast and brilliant catalog.
If you’ve seen a Florida Björkestra show before, you haven’t seen one like this yet.
“The Florida Björkestra is a bonafide gem of the Tampa Bay music scene, and its tribute shows should be the standard for local ensembles.” -Creative Loafing Tampa
