Returning to SW Florida for their 12th season Ferguson & Rogers have gained a respectable following in Naples, Goodland, and Marco Island performing weekly at several venues from November through April. Most restaurants require reservations in advance as many private communities will book tables with 8 to 20 seats for their shows.
The Marco Island Winter Concert series features the F&R Band once a month at Veterans Park drawing a 400+ audience who bring their own chairs and enjoy a solid 2 hour performance with familier songs from the 50's through the 90's. Dance, sing-a-long, laugh, and reminisce from 2 to 4 PM. (dates are on their schedule/calendar)
The 2022-2023 season in South West Florida is going to be a rough one for many residants and Snowbirds who have lost homes, cars, friends, family members and memories. Several communities will not have a “season” because of Ian's wrath leaving total destruction. Ft. Myers, Ft. Myers Beach, Pine Island, Sanibal and Captiva, and parts of Naples, Florida will struggle for many months if not years for a full recovery. Other areas, like Marco Island were spared total destruction and have already begun to bounce back.
Ferguson & Rogers Band is fortunate to return to several venues, restaurants, and private communities on Marco. Our weekly Tuesdays at MARGARITA'S MEXICAN RESTAURANT will begin November 15, 2022, 5-8 PM, The SPEAK EASY Sunday's beginning January 15th, 2023. Monthly CONCERT in the PARK dates are on our calendar, being held at VETERANS PARK on Marco this year.
We're waiting on confirmation from other restaurants as they prepare to reopen after storm damage.
Check our schedule/calendar for dates, updates, and cancellations due to weather at the schedule/calendar page.
NEW YEARS EVE is still available, December 31, 2022 if anybody is looking for LIVE Entertainment. Please contact us at: 239-290-5890
Our VETERAN TRIBUTE is one of the most emotional productions we've ever performed. Military members of the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force and Marines are encouraged to stand and be recognized as the band plays their respective branch songs.

FERGUSON and ROGERS BAND is a totally self contained band with sound re-enforcement including a combination of speakers and powered bass sub cabinets insuring a FULL, balanced sound to cover the room or concert area. As opening act for many national acts (Charlie Pride, Tanya Tucker, ALABAMA, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Conway Twitty) Ferguson & Rogers mixer plugs into their system and suddenly we're playing to 5000 people. (size does matter)
With a fully loaded '8 X 10' enclosed cargo trailer following them to the gig, they come prepared to entertain up to a 800 seat room or arena.
Staging Area must be large enough to accommodate a FOUR piece band.
ONE AC Outlet with 110 volts (20 amp) within 50' of stage.
Most musical gear is on wheels... ramps are appreciated if staging area is NOT on level ground as our vehicle.
Steps and upper levels will be negotiated.
Parking for full size car with attached 8 X 10' trailer after equipment is unloaded.
A dance floor or dance area is most welcome by many in our audience.
Ever conscious of air conditioning and heating expense, your doors will be open about 1 minute while we bring in our equipment.

Ferguson & Rogers Band is NOT an "Easy Listening", Background Music, "could you turn it down, we're trying to talk" type of act. (although some events begin this way, we will accommodate, of course)
Our audiences occasionally like to start dancing and singing right away. We do have a PLAY LIST as a reference to the hundreds of songs we play, but we don't use a SET LIST... we observe the room "energy" before deciding what songs to begin the show with.
However, we'll be in "performance mode" from song one. That said, we have outgrown the smaller venue, TIKI Bar, Piano Bar Lounges, and many Assisted Living facilities "Parlor events".
Outdoor venues: PLEASE make sure your auto sprinkler systems are on OFF until we're loaded up and out of sight.
A quick note on guest sit-ins: If we know the song we will likely let guests sing a song or two, or guitar/horn/harmonica player join us on stage. 3 Rules: F & R must know the song, YOU must know the song AND key, Know the lyrics. We are NOT Karaoke though a Karaoke singer is welcome on our stage BUT NOT if you sing to a cell phone in your other hand, reading lyrics.
FERGUSON & ROGERS BAND utilizes Keyboards, Guitar, Drums, Foot Bass, and Vocals ... They accompany themselves.
