About The Tampa Collective
The Tampa Collective is a new all-pro jamband (featuring vocalist Dre Anders), that pays homage to the celebrated roots of successful and talented bands that cut their musical teeth in the Tampa Bay area, such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tom Petty, and Ray Charles. Borrowing from many of the best bands and studio musicians in the region,The Tampa Collective draws deeply on these celebrated roots to create something new. Expectations are high for this band to do for Tampa The Music City Mafia did for Nashville, and Widespread Panic did for Athens. The Collective not only brings a new sound to The Bay Area, it creates a platform for showcasing the best local talent, and will serve as the jamband “at large” for national acts to sit in with when passing through. Live collaborations by their very nature are an edge of the seat experience…even more so when drawing on the unique talents of so many respected musicians, who are coming together to create a sound that blends the past with the present.
