Artist of the day: Bonnie Bowers
Wait -- since when do musicians sign up for the Chamber of Commerce?
Actually, it's not a bad idea. And Bonnie Bowers is doing just that.
Today, Bowers, a Brooklyn musician who recently relocated to Palm Harbor, is holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Witch's Brew coffeehouse to commemorate her membership in the Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce. Yes, really. Bowers will perform there at 5:30 p.m. Click here for details.
"I consider my work to be a business," Bowers said in a statement. "Chambers of commerce offer many opportunities for their local businesses. What better way (to start a new venture in a new place) than to get involved in that community?”
She's got a voice a bit like Annie Lennox, and she plays a style of music she calls "Riddim Review" -- popular songs reimagined as tropical reggae-ish tracks. Half of the reggae duo Bowers and Winston, she has performed on a number of albums, including some of her own.
