The Gladezmen, The Wholetones and Marc Dobson's One Man Band Come to the Garden for July 2nd Music Bash

 NAPLES, FL – June 16, 2011– What better way to kick-off your Fourth of July holiday weekend than with a three band concert? This year, Naples Botanical Garden hosts a Red, White and Bloom Music Bash on Saturday, July 2, 2011 from 7:00-10:00 p.m., featuring the music of The Gladezmen, The Wholetones and Marc Dobson’s One Man Band.

Each performance will have you stomping your feet and clapping your hands to each band’s unique beats. The Gladezmen’s kick butt “psychobilly” tunes have made them well-known favorites in Southwest Florida. Meanwhile, The Wholetones have captured a strong fan-base in the area with their not quite folk, kind of Indie, mellow blue-grass vibe. Then there is America’s Got Talent 2011 contestant Marc Dobson and his One Man Band who plays nine, count them, nine instruments!
