FORT MYERS, Fla. - iSportsWire -- The Fort Myers Mighty Mussels are returning to Southwest Florida for a six-game homestand highlighted by celebrations of the island lifestyle and Grateful Dead's music.

The 31st annual Islands Night on April 17 will include a pregame parade around the warning track featuring businesses, government officials and nonprofits representing Southwest Florida's barrier islands, including Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach. The in-game atmosphere inside Hammond Stadium at Lee Health Sports Complex also will have a tropical feel.

Grateful Dead Night on April 20 will feature Unlimited Devotion, a Florida-based band that explores Grateful Dead's songbook. The band has evolved its repertoire, personnel and musical personality to reflect its current members' jazz and funk influences. Mighty Mussels fans are encouraged to dress in their favorite Jerry Garcia-styled apparel, tie-dye T-shirts and hippie haircuts. Admission to the postgame concert is included with the price of admission.
