Artist of the day: Serotonic


In 2009, tbt* voters crowned a Latin rock trio called Triptico as Tampa Bay's Ultimate Local Band. Today singer-bassist Gabriel Valdivia, above, fronts a jam-jazz-funk outfit called Serotonic.

Influenced by bands like Galactic and Soulive, the group (which also includes Andrew Kilmartin on drums and Bryan Lewis on keys, plus various guests and friends) focuses "on the New Orleans jazz/funk style of music that relies heavily on improvisation," Valdivia said.

On Saturday (5/7), you can check out Serotonic at Crowbar alongside Skull and Bone Band and Bounce House. The show is at 9 p.m.; tickets are $6 and up. Click here for details.
