The Marco Players Presents:

J.Robert Florida Songwriter Showcase

Every Monday, All Summer

Marco Island, FL – The J.Robert Florida Songwriter Showcase is a music series showcasing Florida songwriters who have composed and recorded original music. Every Monday evening, for 13 weeks, a different songwriter will take the stage to share tales and original music ranging in style from southern rock, blues and country to folk and rock ‘n roll. The evening includes a performance, cheer, Q & A with the musician, and jam session. During the shows, the musicians will share personal stories about Florida heritage that inspired their songwriting and their musical talents.

Produced and directed by J.Robert, a fourth generation ‘Floridian,’ J.Robert is a songwriter and a master fiddler who has developed friendships with many talented songwriters who reside in Florida. When asked “Why?” J.Robert said, “It’s simply my deep desire to share some of my musician friends’ marvelous talents. People will be fascinated with the perspective these writers bring to all sorts of common, everyday events. Because, It’s more than music…it’s a lifestyle!”
