Rome Ramirez talks touring in Florida, performing old hits and keeping the Sublime With Rome name
George Kielty, a writer for our sister publication tb-two*, has been a huge fan of Sublime for a long time. So we were more than happy to get him on the phone with Rome Ramirez, the singer for the rechristened Sublime With Rome. Happily, Rome treated him like an old buddy.
Rome: Whassup, Georgie!
George: Hey Rome, how you doin’ brotha?
Rome: Just chilling out, happy to be home in beautiful sunny California, man.
George: Wish I could say the same. Here in Florida it’s been raining all day.
Sublime With Rome will headline the 2011 97X Next Big Thing concert Saturday at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre; click here for details. For more of Kielty's interview with Rome Ramirez, click here.
And don't forget, Ramirez is hosting an official 97X Next Big Thing afterparty at the Hard Rock Cafe inside the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, 5223 N Orient Road, Tampa. Admission is $12 with a Next Big Thing ticket stub. It's 21 and up. For details, call (813) 627-7625.
