Review: Zac Brown Band draws big names, decadent menu to private RNC party at the Port of Tampa in Channelside




Playing for a room of 1-percenters may seem a curious corporate gig for the furry, fun-loving Zac Brown Band, who are known for their down-home tailgates with fans. But in playing a private, post-RNC concert for the oil-industry trade group the American Petroleum Institute, Brown said not a word on the topics of energy or politics all night, instead letting his band's furious fiddlin' (The Devil Went Down to Georgia), and laid-back lakeside vibes (Toes and Jump Right In) do the talking. Guests like Newt and Callista Gingrich, Liz Cheney and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell were also there. And wait'll you see the menu! Click here for our review.
