About The Tampa Collective
The Tampa Collective is a new all-pro jamband (featuring vocalist Dre Anders), that draws from the celebrated roots of successful and talented bands that cut their musical teeth in the Tampa Bay area, such as Tom Petty and Ray Charles.
Borrowing from many of the best bands and studio musicians in the region,The Tampa Collective draws on these roots and blends them with Dre’s Swedish musical heritage, to create something new. The Collective not only brings their fresh sound to The Bay Area, they’re creating a platform to showcase the best local talent, and serve as the jamband “at large” for national acts to sit in with when passing through. Comparisons have already been made to such bands as North Mississippi Allstars, Widespread Panic, and The Dave Matthews Band. 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.
