Flagship Romance Returns to the Jewel Box Concerts at the Historic Thomas Center

5/25/2017

The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department, in cooperation with Shake Rag Cultural Center, Inc., is pleased to announce the next Jewel Box Concert at the Thomas Center Friday, June 2. The concert features the return of international touring artists Flagship Romance.  Doors open at 6 p.m. Flagship Romance performs at 7 p.m. Admission is $20 at the door - cash or check only, please. Tickets may be purchased in advance online at http://www.evansmediasource.com//index_files/shakeraghome.htm.

Flagship Romance consists of real-life lovers, singers and songwriters Shawn Fisher and Jordyn Jackson Fisher. To describe their sound, they coined the term “harmonic alternative folk.” Anchored by Fisher’s unique guitar playing, Flagship Romance compositions are centered around and feature the couple’s unclassifiable vocal blend. The story of Flagship Romance represents more than just an opportunity to hear two individually talented performers using their abilities to create something bigger than themselves. It is an invitation to witness an actual couple with a shared passion and chemistry, doing what they love with whom they love, with a desire to change the world one song at a time.

The duo will be celebrating the release of their newest album, "Tales from the Self-Help Section." This will also be one of their last performances in Florida before they leave the Sunshine State for a six-month tour across North America.

Samples of Flagship Romances music can be found on their YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/FlagshipRomanceMusic or on their website at http://www.flagshipromance.com/. A photograph of Flagship Romance can be viewed at https://www.flickr.com/photos/gainesville/16207837900/.

Customers may bring their favorite wine or champagne, and an attendant will tend their bottle. Plastic glasses will be provided, but guests are welcome to bring their own glass, as well. Authentic homemade Indian cuisine will be available for purchase.
