I'm proud to announce that the following musical acts will be honored as tbt* Ultimate Locals in the March 20 music issue:
Have Gun, Will Travel
Will Quinlan and the Diviners
Tailgunner Joe and the Earls of Slander
The Bluegrass Parlor Band
Tbt* will be doing an online poll this year to see which band gets the most votes. The band with the most votes will likely get to headline the show at Skipper's on May 2, and will have the opportunity to play on the Plaza at the St Pete Times Forum before a concert.
The issue comes out March 20, and the show is scheduled for May 2 at Skipper's Smokehouse.
Though this is not a Grammy, it is the highest level of recognition we've ever received. We are extremely honored and can't find enough words to show our appreciation. It happened so suddenly we barely had time to write a thank you note. So we'll take this moment to attempt to write one. If you feel you have something to say, please go ahead and add to it.
Thank you tbt*.
