The Leonard Brothers Band will get the Concerts for a Cause series started with a show Friday at the Landing at Waterset.

APOLLO BEACH — The Leonard Brothers Band kicks off Newland Communities' annual Concerts for a Cause series at 7 p.m. Friday at the Landing at Waterset, 7012 Sail View Lane.

The first of 11 free concerts split between the Waterset and FishHawk Ranch communities will give the public the chance to enjoy live music while helping the 700,000 residents supported by Feeding America Tampa Bay by donating nonperishable items. Last year's series led to the donation of more than 3 tons of food, the equivalent of 5,000 meals.

The series continues with Stormbringer May 2 at FishHawk Ranch's Central Park, 14215 Barrington Stowers Drive.

All concerts begin at 7 p.m. except for the 6 p.m. shows on July 4.

  3. The new 'Baywatch' movie is basically about hot people in swimsuits


    Baywatch is a running gag in slow motion, a thong-in-cheek TV retread swapping wholesome jiggles for dirty giggles. There are places for such humor but beaches don't have gutters.
