Release date: May 2011
"Celebration, Florida" is the eight studio album by The Felice Brothers, released on May 10, 2011. The first single off the album, "Ponzi" was released on March 29, 2011.
Recorded in the gymnasium and theater of Beacon, NY's old high school, the band explores a multitude of sounds and instrumentation throughout the expansive album. Celebration, Florida casts scenes of dreamy characters and stories interwoven like a block of primetime TV. Among the tales: a young woman who sets off to find a secret paradise; a teenager who enters a boxing gym in Catskill, NY; a late night host recounting his rise to fame to his honeybee while traveling in a private jet; shady degenerates who get lost in a mystery concerning a Honda Civic; a young girl who crimps her hair and spies her dead father driving down the road; a Wall Street scandal hits a little too close to home; and even a trip through space to find long forgotten Hollywood parties and hopefully make it back there in time to walk down the red carpet.
