Artist of the day: 10th Concession
If South Tampa brothers Evan and Ian Koteles ‚Äî a.ka. 10th Concession ‚Äî sound remarkably polished for a local band, there‚Äôs a good reason: they‚Äôve been around music their whole lives. Dad Albi Koteles drummed for the bands Orleans and Conspiracy.
After recording in Nasvhille with former Disney music honcho Fred Mollin, Evan and Ian ‚Äî is it too soon to call them the KoBros? ‚Äî are preparing for the big-time with a self-titled album full of radio-ready pop-rock singles.
But that hasn't stopped them from being extremely busy around the Tampa Bay scene. They've performed regular gigs at the Market on 7th in Ybor City, and they're playing free weekly acoustic sets at Datz Deli in South Tampa. Check them out at 7 p.m. Thursday at Datz Deli, 2616 S MacDill Ave., Tampa.
