Jeb and Jock Guthrie knew the first time they played a Simon and Garfunkel song that their voices blended effortlessly into that S & G signature sound — and the overwhelming audience reaction to their performances confirmed their feelings. Enjoy favorites including Sound of Silence, Homeward Bound, I Am a Rock, Mrs. Robinson, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Scarborough Fair and many more!
Jock has always been the guitar master, and Jeb the drummer dude. Many bands, among them the heavy-but-doomed Woeful Existence, the harmonious Antique Shoppe,the jazzy, horn-a-plenty Community, the sometimes psychedelic-jam band Steak Nite, and the almost famous On The Edge featured the two of them in this format. Once the brothers combined their two guitars and voices, they headed east and picked up a publishing deal on the way. After a successful five-year tour of the Northeast’s premier beer venues, the Guthrie Brothers struck out on their own and soon landed their big record deal.
Since 1966, the Neel Performing Arts Center has served as a cultural center for Manatee and Sarasota counties hosting both college and community sponsored events. Newly remodeled in 1999, the auditorium features a 65- by 40- foot stage, seating for 837, as well as wheelchair accessible seating and restrooms. The magnificent Elizabeth M. Eaton Memorial Pipe Organ, a 50-rank, 3-manual instrument built by master craftsman Charles McManis, was rededicated in October, 2000.
Located on the west side of the building is the new David S. & Anne V. Howard Studio Theatre, the new home of Studio 84 Productions, the SCF student theatre company
