Mighty Mussels’ ‘Country Night’ to feature Garth Brooks tribute band

The Ultimate Garth Brooks Tribute BandGrab your blue jeans, boots and cowboy hats as the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels break out the guitar and southern twang to celebrate Country Night on May 13. 

The evening concludes with a postgame concert on the breezeway steps by The Ultimate Garth Brooks Tribute Band, which has performed at venues across Florida, including Universal Studios and Sea World. 

“Grateful Dead Night was our first postgame concert of the season, and the energy from ‘Deadheads’ all night was unbelievable,” said Chris Peters, president of the Mighty Mussels. “Garth Brooks is currently in residency in Las Vegas, so we wanted to bring the next best thing to Southwest Florida.” 

Led by front man and vocalist Kip Sweeny, The Ultimate Garth Brooks Tribute Band is an interactive concert that thrives on audience participation in addition to first-class vocals to create a truly unique music experience. 

“Get ready for the high-energy, action-packed Ultimate Garth Brooks Tribute,” said Sweeny, who hails from Saint Cloud. “You’ll hear all of the crowd favorite, chart-topping hits including Friends in Low Places, The Thunder Rolls and many more.”
