Sister Hazel Comes to Seminole Casino Immokalee
Pop-rockers Sister Hazel will perform their chart-topping hits at Seminole Casino Immokalee on Saturday, March 9 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 1. Combining elements of acoustic rock, folk and jangle pop, Sister Hazel formed in 1993 in Gainesville, Fla. The band’s five members all boasted ties to the city’s local scene. Vocalist/guitarist Ken Block and guitarist/vocalist Andrew Copeland canvassed the coffee shop circuit as a duo, lead guitarist Ryan Newell honed his chops with the local band Waterdog, bassist Jett Beres studied his instrument while pursuing a degree in architecture, and drummer Mark Trojanowski played with several Florida-based jazz ensembles before pursuing a career in pop music. Sister Hazel released their debut album in 1994 before moving to a major label for their second album, 1997’s Somewhere More Familiar. The album’s “All for You” topped the adult alternative charts and propelled the album to platinum status. After touring heavily, the band released their third album, Fortress, with the popular single “Change Your Mind.” Their seventh studio album, 2009’s Release, reached the top 50 on the Billboard Album Charts. Heartland Highway followed in 2010. The band continues to tour, doing around 100 tour stops annually. Tickets are $10 and $15 and are available at the Casino Cage or by calling 1-800-218-0007. Tickets are also available at the door for $15 and $20.
