Rhythm on the River at Edison Ford

Fort Myers, Fla. (April 7, 2014) – Join the Edison & Ford Winter Estates and Pinchers at The Marina for Rhythm on the River, an evening of live music and dancing in the Edison Coconut Grove.  Music will be provided by the Danny Morgan Band.  Cash bar provided by Pinchers at The Marina and participants can enjoy dining before or after the event. All Rhythm on the River guests will receive a $5 off Pinchers coupon to be redeemed that evening ONLY.

The Edison and Ford families enjoyed the Coconut Grove area of their winter estates.   Thomas Edison fished off the pier; the family canoed out into the Caloosahatchee River from the shoreline; and entertained guests in Pavilion on the river.  The inventor of the phonograph also enjoyed live entertainment.  He and his wife Mina hosted a variety of events that included musical performances on the grounds of their winter estate.

Rhythm on the River is a monthly event held on the second Friday of the month.  Every month Southwest Florida bands will perform in the Coconut Grove of the Edison Estate.   Guests will enjoy a magnificent sunset, cocktails, and live music on the historic site.  Cost:  Edison Ford Members $10; non-members $5.  For more information call 239-334-7419.
