Events+ - Filter Output on Event with Multiple Days/Times

I have used the following code to filter out some of the text used in the Events+ plugin. From the image below, you can see there is still one word that won't filter 'and'. How can I get rid of that.

I used this thread for the code - https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/im-using-events-and-i-would-like-to-change-the-format-of-the-dates-and-times

add_filter('eab-events-event_date_string','alter_event_string_format');

function alter_event_string_format($content) {
    $content = str_replace('Takes place on ', '', $content );
    $content = str_replace('Took place on ', '', $content );
    $content = str_replace('from', '', $content );
    $content = str_replace('to ', '- ', $content );
    $content = str_replace(' and ', '', $content );

    return $content;
}

The last line of code that attempts to replace ' and ' did not work.
