JRobert - Marco Music Man


I've been welcoming visitors to Florida and sharing my Marco Island music and lifestyle for over 20 years.

Now I'd like to share some of my adventures, interests, and friends with you.

After all these years, this is my 1st JRobert Newsletter!

I hope you enjoy this sparkle of Florida sunshine, stories, songs, and special moments.

JRobert in NY Times

The on-going saga of the Smallwood Store, Chokoloskee, Florida, recently caught the interest of NY Times writer, Lizette Alvarez.

Lizette, composed this brilliant story. I appreciate the fact that after all the interviews and fact gathering involved with writing about such an extensive historically sensitive issue, JRobert got the last quote!

July Friends: Tara O'Neill

My July Featured Friend is the impeccably delicious artist, Tara O'Neill.

Acclaimed far and wide in her under-cover bartender roll as the Queen of the "Little Bar Restaurant" in downtown Goodland, Florida...Tara has emerged in the last 10 years as one of SW Florida's most celebrated and sought after oil/canvas painters!

Tara is an award winning, highly exhibited, and seriously charming impressionist sharing her visions of SW Florida beaches, backwaters, and Everglades!

This month her art is being featured at Marco Island's
Blue Mangrove Gallery

Go ahead and visit Tara O'Neill at
Tara O'Gallery

Also, the Coastal Breeze News is pleased to have Tara write her weekly inspirations
"Artful Life!"

July Thanks!

Fran Bator's June 21st Equinox Party at Le Jardin was a knockout!

Brock and Donna Pilat's wedding at Marriott's Crystal Shores Resort resonated with a wonderful family gathering.

I celebrated July 4th with both Marco Island Yacht Club and Reflection Lakes Country Club - lots of dancing and singing traditional patriotic songs.
