We may not have snow but you'll feel cozy and warm when you experience "Comfort & Joy" this holiday season!
Our Gig in a Flat Series, hosted at The Specialty Arts Center on the waterfront in Sarasota, was designed to have you experience music like never before.
"Kandy & Iain" often enjoy playing to large audiences with lights and amplifiers and electric instruments in support of organizations doing great work throughout the Suncoast and the world, but some of their favorite musical moments have been performing in friends' apartments (or "flats", as Iain called them in the UK), sitting on sofas, and running through favorite songs for a small group of friends in an intimate, informal, acoustic setting. In such moments, musical magic often happens, but the audience never get to experience it!
And so, Gig in a Flat was born -- a new series of evenings where the audience can sit right next to the band in a cozy, home-like, and relaxed environment, enjoy a glass of wine or egg nog, and be there, right up close, while they make music -- and you FEEL the magic!
