Rotary Clubs of Fort Myers South Announces ROCKtoberfest Concert Series at Bell Tower Shops

Live music series showcases local talent while benefiting Fort Myers Rotary groups

Rotary Club of Fort Myers South is thrilled to announce ROCKtoberfest, a free, live music series presented by Bell Tower Shops. Each Thursday in October from 6 to 8 p.m. some of Southwest Florida’s finest local talent will provide fun for all ages at this exciting fall concert series.

Set in Center Court, Rotary Club of Fort Myers South and Rotary Club of Fort Myers – Sunrise will host the outdoor bar, offering beer, wine, soft drinks, and water. All proceeds from the outdoor bar benefit these local Rotary groups.

This is an event you will not want to miss! The musical lineup includes some of Southwest Florida’s finest local bands:

Thursday, Oct. 3—Memphis 56—Favorites of the downtown Fort Myers music scene and regulars at Art Walk and Music Walk, this trio plays rockabilly and roots rock including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams. You won’t want to miss their “flaming” upright bass!

Thursday, Oct. 10—Rotary Rocks—The house band for Rotary International District 6960 makes a special appearance at Bell Tower Shops with their blend of early and classic rock. Featuring vocalist Cyndi Doragh, the all-Rotarian band will get you dancing around the Center Court fountain.

Thursday, Oct. 17—Rockin’ Horse —Boasting band members who have opened for the Allman Brothers and Toby Keith, this classic rock powerhouse has taken Southwest Florida by storm with their awe-inspiring renditions of Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Black Crowes, Tom Petty and Neil Young. You won’t want to miss this show!

Thursday, Oct. 24—Barefoot & Brendon — Barefoot & Brendon play an eclectic mix of modern and classic rock. The duo brings acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass and drums adding up to a full-band sound. Favorites include Muse, U2 and more. See them at this rare Ft. Myers appearance!

Thursday, Oct. 31—Strange Arrangement —Unique and unpredictable, it is impossible to categorize Strange Arrangement aka The Brothers Van Kirk. Playing original, fun and funky music, the group is also known for their awesome stage presence, often incorporating costumes into their high-energy performances.

Don’t forget to put on your best costumes for the Halloween costume contest that will take place after the Oct. 31 concert at 8 p.m.
