Save The Radio / Press

“The evening kicked off with a festive mood. Ninety minutes before puck drop, scores of fans were already trolling the concourse, playing games, snapping pictures on the zamboni, or with ThunderBug or the Lightning Girls. Local band Save the Radio was pumping out songs, assuring us all that it was indeed a “nice day for a white wedding.””

“And in June, tragedy hit even closer to home when two Tampa police officers, David Curtis and Jeff Kocab, were shot and killed during a routine traffic stop. Jannus Live hosted a tribute concert to raise money for the officers’ families. It was one of many events designed to raise money for the families, and artists like Save the Radio performed.”

“Tampa bar and party band Save the Radio are busy guys. In addition to regular gigs at venues like the Dubliner in SoHo and the Green Iguana on West Shore, they often perform a mix of covers and originals at special events like Gasparilla, Guavaween and events outside the St. Pete Times Forum. When the Super Bowl came to town, they played an acoustic set alongside 3 Doors Down at the Bud Bowl at Channelside....This summer, the band released their debut self-titled EP, and are working on a full-length..But several times a week, they're almost always playing somewhere.”

“Through a stretch of 95-degree heat, and even during a sudden downpour, people kept arriving, the bands played and the widows watched from VIP balcony seats….The latest outpouring of support for the wives of slain Tampa police Officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab took the form of a benefit concert Sunday at Jannus Live downtown….(with) alternative rock group Save the Radio scheduled to round out the concert.”
