Local musicians: Donate your promo CDs to troops overseas



From time to time we here at SoundcheckCorp. receive promo CDs by local artists in the mail. We love this, because it gives us a chance to hear what folks in the Tampa Bay scene are up to.

But this week, another local group wants your promo CDs for a greater cause.

The folks at WineMall in Tampa are holding a drive Wednesday to collect for food, supplies and care-package items to send to troops overseas, and one think they're looking for is music.

"A frequently requested item is cds," reads the event's Craisglist posting. "I am asking local musicians to please help out by donating some of their promotional cds."

We're told they've got about 30 CDs so far, but are looking for more. Tommy Zvoncheck and Julie Black are among the local artists who have donated or will donate their discs at the drive, which is 7 to 11 p.m. Wednesday at WineMall, 11246 W Hillsborough Ave., Tampa. The event doubles as a wine tasting, so hey, you show up and give a little, at least you'll get to wet your beak.
