Cigar Box Guitars Making a Comeback
Native Bamboo luthier Claude Kennedy sells cigar box guitars in Clearwater. "Not everybody can afford a Fender Strat."
Mac MacNamara of Punta Gorda agrees. "I keep a cigar box guitar on a stand in my living room next to a set of conga drums. Guests love it. And it looks just great!"
Skipper's Smoke House in Tampa recently hosted a cigar box guitar concert featuring the Delta Swamp Rats, a blues oriented ensemble. The fun, relatively inexpensive instrument may soon replace the uke as the hottest fad instrument of Florida.

The new production of West Side Story uses real Puerto Ricans. Most of the production is in English with bits of Spanish dropped in for flavor. A new approach to costuming blends the best of many eras with the men looking authentic to the times and the women looking hot (nice touch from a later era). It's the best of all worlds!
(Be sure to go to a Chinese restaurant while you're there. Which one? Well... Anyone!!!! You'll see what we mean.)
