“Light Up Clearwater”
A Benefit to Restore the Historic Capitol Theatre, starring Suite Caroline
Even if you are not a local Tampa Bay-ite – this is something you’ll want to come to! JoTo has been asked to help out on a cool project, right here in Tampa Bay. We’re pretty honored. It’s a special benefit performance featuring Clearwater’s own sensational teen recording artist Suite Caroline and students from The Marcia P. Hoffman Performing Arts Institute at Ruth Eckerd Hall.
The City of Clearwater and Ruth Eckerd Hall joined forces to renovate and revitalize the intimate Capitol Theatre located on downtown Clearwater’s beautiful Cleveland Street. Constructed and established in 1921, this classic structure, complete with a large mezzanine and furnishings reminiscent of a classic Hollywood theater, is one of the oldest operating theatres in the state of Florida. In 2009, the Clearwater City Council designated the Capitol Theatre a historical landmark. This is the first such designation by the city.
The benefit concert is to help raise funds to restore the historic landmark. Check out the event on Facebook here.
Don’t you know who Suite Caroline is? We’ve done PR for the 4th Friday gigs in downtown Clearwater where she has performed several times. She’s a prodigy!
“At 13 years old, she’s a fireball of talent and guitar artistry, drawing enthusiastic crowds wherever she performs.” The Sounding Board – The Official Magazine of the Martin Guitar Company
“…it’s glaringly apparent that even though she’s just 13, when Suite Caroline straps a guitar over her shoulder and steps up to the mic, she definitely has ‘IT’.” ~David Norrie –What’s Hot Tampa Bay Magazine
