Fish-Tale Marina will host the annual Fort Myers Beach Friends of the Arts Winter Concert Series. The shows, which run monthly January through April are held in the marina's boat barn, which morphs into the “Propeller Lounge.”

Paul Todd and Paul Todd, Jr kick off the series with the sounds of the holiday season in December with a free concert in Santini Marina Plaza.
 
Then, the New Year starts with a tribute to Billy Joel, performed by popular tribute band, The Turnstiles (named after Joel’s album). Al Holland and Friends perform in February, and according to the Friends of the Arts website, this is always a sell-out show.

"The King Guys are back for their third year and will be bringing 'The World’s Smallest Big Band' to perform a tribute to the men who shaped the Big Band Era – giants like Duke Ellington, Count Bassie, Glen Miller, Benny Goodman and and many more!" the website says.

The Local Showcase concludes the series and features Fort Myers Beach favorites Bob Williams, Mike McMillian, Bill Veach, Jo List and Sheena Brook.

For more information on the concert series, and to purchase tickets, visit FMBArts.org.

In addition to the upcoming concert series, Fish-Tale Marina recently announced the opening of Fish-Tale Waterfront Dining, its new restaurant.

"We have a great chef and crew who are ready to serve locals and visitors alike," said marketing director Janeen Paulauskis. "We are so thrilled to share this lovely space with the community."

Fish-Tale Waterfront Dining offers the newest option for an upscale culinary experience in the Southwest Florida dining scene, Paulauskis said. It dons a tiki bar, where guests can enjoy an appetizer and cocktail while enjoying a view of the back bay.

For more information about the restaurant, visit thefishtalemarina.com/fish-tale-restaurant.

Located on the Estero Bay aquatic preserve on Fort Myers Beach, Fish-Tale Marina, part of the Clean Marina program, has served Fort Myers Beach and the surrounding communities since 1958.

Its current owners, Al and Kathy Durrett, who took ownership in 1985, have made Fish-Tale Marina the premier marina on Fort Myers Beach, Paulauskis said.

"Fish-Tale Marina has an ideal location with easy access to the Gulf of Mexico," she continued.

Paulauskis has been with Fish-Tale Marina and its campus since September 2014. She also serves as the events director for the marina, which boasts a campus that includes a large boat storage, several slips and charter dock with over a half-dozen guides, a ship store, Santini Marina Plaza, Walker’ Sales and Service, the Estero Bay Express dolphin and eco tour, and the new Fish-Tale Waterfront Dining.

"The experience you’ll enjoy is like no other marina in Southwest Florida," Paulauskis said. "Our entire staff is dedicated to making sure your time on the water, dining and shopping is memorable – it makes you want to come back."

Among Paulauski's favorite memories is going to Estero Bay Express and seeing families enjoy seeing their first dolphin or manatee. She also reflected upon the marina's annual Community Day activities, which are designed to welcome and thank patrons. They also host weddings and special events.
