On January 13, 2017... Greg Billings Band celebrated the 35th anniversary of Stranger with a sold out show at Clearwater's Capitol Theatre. Luckily, they recorded the incredible set and it's available to stream now! There's also a bonus track featuring Robin Zander from Cheap Trick!! If you love real rock n roll, it doesn't get more real than Greg Billings Band.
Tampa's own Mama's Batch has made their debut ep, 'Til the Sunrise, available for streaming and its like a blessing from on high. Mama's Batch produces the perfect mixture of homegrown funk and soul, and we can't get songs like "Wasted Time" and "Wrong Side" out of our heads.
Catch them all over the Tampa Bay area - including tonight at sold out the Greg Billings Band Live / Stranger 35 Party in Madiera Beach.
Introducing new artist Ethan E! Listen to his single "Saved" now and get ready for his debut EP, 10 Eagle St., out on 10/20 via Cigar City MGMT Label Services.
Ethan E grew up playing cello for 12 years, coming from a family of classical musicians, who spend Thanksgiving and Passover evenings sight-reading quartets and sonatas.
His upcoming debut album, 10 Eagle St., comes from the belief that identity can tie into location (in Ethan's case, Upstate New York). The sounds not only represent the instruments, but also bottle up whatever essence comes from driving through Hudson Valley landscapes, and walking the streets of Hudson.

Pet;wolf calls the song a "rallying cry to the free thinkers", noting that "'Dance With The Devil' is saying no to evil and the avoidance of negativity; about taking steps forward and not repeating the past. It's a message of triumph."
