You don’t need to wear dancing shoes, but the organizers of Fairhope Educational Enrichment Foundation’s fall fundraiser bet you won’t be able to sit still when you hear rhythm and blues band St. Paul and the Broken Bones at Phantasy of the Arts 2013. Be prepared to dance, sing and shout on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 7 p.m. at the Fairhope Civic Center as FEEF shakes things up with great music, food, libations and its own high-tech version of digital graffiti.
Music critics have named St. Paul and the Broken Bones one of the top Alabama bands to listen to now. Earlier this year, the soul revival group from Birmingham opened for John Mayer in Tuscaloosa and rocked the stage at the Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores. Phantasy co-chairs Kathy Sternenberg and Gretchen Valentine agree, this is a performance not to be missed.
Other highlights of the evening include local, acoustic duo Kyle and Karl playing in the outdoor venue, projection mapping by Will Isherwood of Prime Suspect Productions, food by Tamara’s Restaurant Group, and an opportunity to sample beer on tap by The Fairhope Brewing Company.
Now in its 10th year, Phantasy of the Arts has raised almost half a million dollars for Fairhope public school students. This year, event proceeds will be used to provide programs such as choral electives for high school students and increased enrichment opportunities for fine arts, science, and technology in grades K-8.
