SoundBytes: Parachute Musical, Jason Bonham, Mates of State and more
-- Fans of Ben Folds, Jack's Mannequin and Matt and Kim will want to check out Parachute Musical, above, when they return to Tampa Bay with a gig Oct. 11 at Crowbar. We can't recommend their catchy tune No Comfort enough. Tickets are only $7; get 'em here.
-- Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience is coming back to Tampa Bay. The son of Zep's legendary drummer will bring his world-class tribute act to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Nov. 18. There's no ticket info yet, but keep an eye out here for details.
-- Finally, many of you have probably been following the story of Ralph Ameduri, the longtime local musician (the Legendary JC's) who was shot and killed outside during an attempted robbery at a Winter Haven bar last weekend. (Click here for more on the story.) Police are offering a reward of $2,500 for information leading to the capture of his killer, and many of his local musician friends are soliciting donations to increase the size of the award, and hopefully entice more people to come forward.
