Rockin’ in Paradise with Styx at Ruth Eckerd Hall

HOP_9900

A sold out crowd at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall was treated to an amazing night of music by Styx and 38 Special: two bands that have provided us a juke box full of hits and for some, a soundtrack of their youth.  Yes, another sold out rock show in Tampa Bay. People are getting out […]

The 13 – Featuring Jack Grisham

Live form LB

What is “The 13” you ask? It’s simple, 13 questions and answers with interesting people. This time we have Jack Grisham, the front man of the legendary punk band, T.S.O.L. letting us peak into his wonderful and artful mind. Ott: T.S.O.L. has a new album coming out (which I can’t wait to hear), what can […]

This Is Mushroomhead

_M2A0112

Mushroomhead at The Haven in Winter Park, Fl. I stood in front of the stage, a sense of fear started to creep in. It was the final act of a six-hour show, and the band was already 20 minutes late. The crowd was huge, especially for such a small venue. Adorned with masks, tattoos, and […]

My Monstrous Kind Of Rockville

Collective Soul 1

Monster Energy Drink’s Welcome to Rockville is more of an experience than a show. Though they passed out schedules at the door, you’d be lucky to see even half of what the event had to offer due to its enormity. Walking through the gate felt like being transported to a new world – a place […]

You Ott to be Listening: Volume 7

Clint-Lowery01-480x342

This week’s playlist is nothing but covers. Covers go a long way with me and these 10 go the distance. Don’t forget to support the bands, and when I say support I don’t just me listen to their songs… I’m talking buying their Merchandise, go to their shows, and help promote them. O’Keefe Music Foundation: […]

The 2016 Monster Energy’s Fort Rock Festival at Jet Blue Park in Ft. Myers, FL made its two-day debut on April 30 and May 1, 2016.  And let’s just say, it couldn’t have been any better, as AEG did a great job organizing this year’s festival.   This year’s sponsors included: Monster Energy, Jack Daniels, Bud […]
