TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND APRIL 12 TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, JANUARY

(Fort Myers) – Tedeschi Trucks Band will perform at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall at FSW on Thursday, April 12 at 7:30PM. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 26 at 10AM and will be available at the Box Office, online at www.bbmannpah.com or call 239-481-4849.
 
Now in their eighth year, Grammy-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band has earned their reputation as one of the premier live acts touring today. The 12-piece ensemble, led by the husband-and-wife team of guitarist Derek Trucks and guitarist-singer Susan Tedeschi, is a true collective; a rarity in rock-and-roll with every musician featured nightly while serving the band’s unified vision, pushing the boundaries of group dynamics and improvisation to inspiring new heights. Praised by reviewers for their “joy-filled blast of blues, soul and rock” (Philadelphia Inquirer) and “stellar musicianship” (Denver Post), TTB is a touring juggernaut, on the road over 200 days a year and never playing the same set list twice.
 
Their latest release, Live From the Fox Oakland, (2017) – a CD and film – was recorded in a single night at a show that fans and band members all regard as one of their finest performances to date.  The double disc live recording showcases the band’s ability to move seamlessly from blistering rock and blues to soulful ballads and includes their take on classics from Derek and the Dominos, Leonard Cohen, and even Miles Davis among TTB’s original songs.
 
Live From the Fox Oakland, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Blues and #6 on the Rock Albums chart, follows four critically-hailed and commercially successful TTB albums, including their Grammy-winning inaugural studio effort Revelator (2011), and 2016’s Let Me Get By, the first to be solely produced by Trucks and written in house in the TTB family and called by the Associated Press “one of the great records of the year”.
 
Performance Date / Time:           Thursday, April 12 – 7:30PM*
Ticket Prices:                                     $125*    $99.50*    $69.50*    $59.50*     $49.50*
*All shows, dates, times and ticket prices are subject to change

RED SOX TO EXTEND PROTECTIVE NETTING FOR 2018 SEASON

BOSTON, MA – The Red Sox today announced plans to extend protective netting beyond the dugouts at Fenway Park for the start of the 2018 season. The new netting system will extend from Field Box Section 79 to Field Box Section 9, expanded from an area previously covering Field Box Section 61 to Field Box Section 29. It will be positioned with the same consistent height as the existing system, which stands at 12 feet, 8 inches above the playing field.
 
Additionally, in collaboration with Lee County, Florida, protective netting will also be extended at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers from Field Box Section 111 to Left Field Box Section 114, expanded from Field Box Section 105 to Left Field Box Section 106.  This new system will be completed for the start of the upcoming 2018 spring training season.
 
The club has worked with design and engineering teams, as well as netting vendor Promats Athletics, to devise and install netting solutions for both Fenway Park and JetBlue Park that offer optimal visibility for the fan viewing experience. All netting will be “field green” in color to further minimize the impact to sightlines in affected areas.
 
While expanded netting will offer additional protection, the club continues to encourage fans to be vigilant during games and to be on the lookout for balls and bats that may enter the stands in their seating area.
 
The new netting coverage area for both Fenway Park and JetBlue Park is displayed in the attached ballpark maps.

Documentary Film Director Michael Ramsdell Presents Art and Activism Across Borders: A Directors Talk at FSW

JANUARY 18, 2018 – FORT MYERS, FLA. – Documentary film director Michael Ramsdell will present a discussion on global citizenship, Art and Activism Across Borders: A Directors Talk, at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 12, in Building J, Room 103, at the Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) Thomas Edison Campus, 8099 College Parkway, Fort Myers.
“It is part of FSW’s mission to prepare a diverse population for creative and responsible participation in a global society,” said Dr. Russell Swanson, professor, Philosophy. “By bringing guests such as Michael Ramsdell to the college to share his experience and provide insight on global events, we hope we will encourage others to investigate beyond their own backyards.”
Ramsdell is the director of the award-winning documentary films “When Elephants Fight” and “The Anatomy of Hate: A Dialogue for Hope.” Prior to his appearance, screenings of both films will be held at the FSW Thomas Edison Campus. Film screenings will take place:
Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2 p.m., in Building U, Room 102 – “The Anatomy of Hate: A Dialogue for Hope”
Wednesday, Jan. 31, noon, in Building AA, Room 177 – “When Elephants Fight”
Thursday, Feb. 1, 6 p.m., in Building U, Room 102 – “When Elephants Fight”
Monday, Feb. 5, 3 p.m., in Building U, Room 102 – “The Anatomy of Hate: A Dialogue for Hope”
“When Elephants Fight” explores the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has taken the lives of almost six million Congolese in the past 15 years. Since 2001, the UN and other NGO’s have reported that this conflict is being funded, in part, by Western companies, armed groups and corrupt leaders whose looting and selling of Congolese minerals has created windfall profits for these unsavory players, while leaving the people of Congo the most impoverished on earth…yet this looting continues still today.
“The Anatomy of Hate: A Dialogue for Hope” explores groups based on hate, war, and violence from around the globe. Guided by Einstein’s principle that peace can only be achieved through understanding, “The Anatomy of Hate” looks to bring understanding to this topic so we can better understand how hate comes to be, and more important, how we can end it.
The directors talk and film screenings are free and open to the public.
 
For more information, contact Dr. Swanson  at (239) 489-9312 or rswanson@fsw.edu.
