Coming Saturday: Daniel B. Marshall, Evan Longoria will make beautiful music together
Daniel B. Marshall is having himself a fine 2011. First he performs at the Gasparilla Pirate Fest in downtown Tampa. And now, this weekend, he's expecting a star-studded bash for his CD release party on Saturday.
The Tampa singer-songwriter will release his new album, Same Old New Beginnings at 10 p.m. Saturday at Jackson's Bistro in Tampa. And while Marshall may be the titular star of the party, his friend Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays will host the party, and he's planning to bring along some special guests. Prizes will be given out every hour.
As we discovered last summer, Longo is a pretty hardcore music fan, too. He's a drummer, and he keeps a kit hidden inside Tropicana Field. His at-bat walk-up song, Tantric's Down and Out, is enough to give any Rays fans chills. When Tantric performed following a Rays game last year, there was talk that Longo himself might sit in on drums. Didn't happen, but hey, maybe he'll perform with Marshall on Saturday.
Doors open at 10 p.m. Saturday at Jackson's, 601 S Harbour Island Blvd., Tampa. Women $8, men $11. (813) 277-0112. Click here for info on the show.
