Subject – J.Robert’s Janary Florida Songwriter Showcase
Bonita Springs, FL – J.Robert’s Florida Songwriter Showcase enjoyed recognition after a 13 week Summer Series at the Marco Players Theater on Marco Island and will now present a Winter Series at the SW Florida Event Center located in Bonita Springs, beginning January 8, 2018, 6:30 – 9:30 pm.
This first show of the season will feature Nashville songwriter and retired Collier County EMS first responder, Tim McGeary, as well as nationally recognized Americana favorites, Roy Schneider and Kim Mayfield.
Tim McGeary’s songs have been tapped for such hit television shows as “Smallville,” “One Tree Hill,” and “Glory Days,” as well as the made for HBO film “Girl Got Moe.”
Retired firefighter and paramedic with the Collier County Fire Department, Tim was among the emergency personnel who went to New York to help out at Ground Zero in the wake of 9/11.
Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Roy Schneider has been touring and performing full-time with musical partner Kim Mayfield since 2008, across America, the UK, and parts of Europe. Roy's last two CD releases have received generous airplay on Americana, Folk and Pandora radio. Notable performance venues include 30A Songwriters Festival, Kerrville NewFolk, Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist, Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, Yorkshire England's Mad Fest and NBC's The Voice. Roy is also a gifted accompanist and has performed onstage with John McEuen, Tom Paxton, and Joe Craven among others.
This event is produced and directed by J.Robert Houghtaling, a songwriter and master fiddler who has developed friendships with many talented songwriters. “Each artist is a treasure trove of stories and songs,” says J.Robert. “The radio plays hit songs…while here we share heart songs!”
