Bands gather in New Port Richey Feb. 28

Remember our local metal band, The Stand? I received an email from band member Chaz McKell about their recent success playing the State Theatre. They were offered the opportunity to perform in the venue again for a show with Saliva in May.

Chaz also dropped a note about a Feb. 28 concert at New Port Richey's Bourbon Street Night Club featuring local band The D.O.O.D. (Distinguished Order Of
Disobedience) and other area musicians. He wanted me to share this:

Coming up on Sunday, February 28th is another show music lovers in the Tampa Bay
area cannot miss out on. The Sammus Theory will be gracing the people of New Port Richey at Bourbon Street when they play host to a long list of amazing local bands you all should have at least heard of: The DooD, From This Fire, Nine Mile Drive and Meet Me Overboard.

For those who are not familiar with The D.O.O.D., please stop and take a listen. (
This is one of the hottest bands in the Tampa Bay Area and arguably, the most popular band of the Bradenton/Sarasota area. The Distinguished Order Of Disobedience has been melting faces and turning heads since 2006. Since the release of their latest EP, The Dood has been playing all over Florida promoting it. They have had the opportunity to play with such bands as Neurotica, Crossbreed and Cold so they are no strangers to the stage. Now, they are about
to add The Sammus Theory to their already impressive resume.

Also providing backup to The Sammus Theory on February 28th will be the skyrocketing
band, From This Fire (, who just last night topped the charts on the worldwide radio program Rock Solid Pressure with their song 'When All Is Said and Done'. These guys are one of the most popular bands in the Clearwater area and judging from the voting last night on the RSP show, their fan base is exploding fast and furiously.

Also check out the other local bands who will be playing, I have not personally seen them perform but their music is great. This is undoubtedly the "can't miss" event of the month.

The event is at 4331 US Hwy 19 in New Port Richey. Tickets are $10. The doors open at 8 p.m. the bands start at 9 p.m. Please support our hard-working local musicians as they entertain the masses.
