Florida Soul: Book Event

February 16, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

FMoPA and Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts (TBBCA) will host a special event at 5 p.m. on Feb. 16 with John Capouya and Suzanne Williamson sharing the stories, pictures and music that illuminate John’s new book, Florida Soul: From Ray Charles to KC and the Sunshine Band, a history of soul music in the state. Floridians produced some of the most popular soul hits of all time from the late 1940s through the 1970s. John and Suzanne traveled the state from Miami to Pensacola for more than six years to interview and photograph musicians and producers. Adding to the wealth of historical images in the book, Suzanne created ten photographic portraits of “soul survivors” in their current lives.
