The Sanibel Community Association will welcome Southwest Florida entertainer and Marco Island resident JRobert as the featured artist for this month’s Danny Morgan Production of “Songwriters Blend” at The Community House on Wednesday, April 7 from 7 to 9 p.m.
The Community House will once again transform itself into an intimate coffee house setting where you can stop by after dinner for great music and drinks. Sit back and relax with a glass of wine, drink or a cup of Sanibel Bean coffee and enjoy the varied musical talents of JRoberts as he plays tropical guitar, steel pan, Florida fiddle and sings.

He has served as a warmup act for many national artists including Tom T Hall, Billy Dean and John Anderson, Doug Kershaw, Charlie Daniels, Travis Tritt, Ramblin Jack Elliot, Buffy Saint-Marie, John McEuen of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, as well as Jimmy Buffett.
In addition, JRobert has toured performed in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Switzerland, Germany and England.
