It's fun for all and all for fun at Wishbone Ash fan convention at Florida resort

Wishbone Ash, the ground-breaking British band that pioneered the melodic twin-lead guitar style which influenced the likes of Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden, presents an opportunity for fans to enjoy four days of sun and fun with them at AshFest Florida 2008.

Join Andy Powell, Bob Skeat, Muddy Manninen and Joe Crabtree from Sept. 4 through 7 at the Sandpiper Club Med in St. Lucie, Florida. Relax at this all-inclusive resort and enjoy two private concerts with your favorite band. Organized by OceanConcerts, this very special AshFest is a unique way to bring together Wishbone Ash and their fans in a soothing atmosphere.

“AshFest provides a great opportunity for music fans to hang out with the band and meet like-minded music lovers," says guitarist/singer Andy Powell. “We held similar events on exotic cruises in previous years and they were a huge success. This year we decided to move to dry land and chose Club Med for its glamorous location, all inclusive hospitality and huge array of activities. We want families to be able to get the best of both both worlds - vacation and concert - to provide the experience of a lifetime."

Located between Miami and Orlando on Florida's east coast, the Sandpiper stretches along the lush environs of the St. Lucie River and features picturesque golf courses, tennis courts, five swimming pools, extensive sports programs and a full range of children's clubs. This resort experience includes programs, amenities and activities, dining, dancing and more.
