Josh Magwood Band
Josh Magwood Band can normally be found playing all over St. Pete with their distinct Blues Rock/Reggae Rock sound. The band is great at covering groups such as Dave Matthews Band and Damien Marley, but the thing that impresses me the most is their original songs. I am often skeptical when a local band switches gears from covers to original songs at a show, but I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw the Josh Magwood band. You don't have to take my word for it. Check out their original songs "Zombieland" and "Indestructable"

The crowd at Ricky T's bar is comfortable with its favorite singer. Toon is a blond, stocky man who plays his guitar in flip-flops and a T-shirt. His voice is a sugary tenor with a pronounced and natural vibrato. Toon is even better known for his waggish humor and captivating, down-to-earth charm. Hooting between songs, quoting from the movie Animal House and verbally accosting patrons who must walk past him to get to the bathroom are regular parts of his act, which is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining in town.

Larry ‘Stretch’ Mott
Country, Southern Rock, Classic Rock, Dance, Motown, Rap and Reggae.
Hi everyone, I am a native Floridian, grew up in Lakeland, and have been playing guitar since I was 12 years old. In gigs all around Tampa Bay, the music consists of drum parts written on computer, and the bass guitar recorded live in my studio and sometimes an acoustic guitar is added, then mixed down to tracks. I also have some tracks that have been studio produced with horns and other instruments too. The vocals and lead guitar are live, so I have a multi-piece band sound with a solo act. Music played is Country, 70's & 80's, Southern Rock, Classic Rock, Dance, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Rap and Motown. I have played in honkytonks and venues all over Tampa Bay since 1989, and played in Okinawa, Japan while stationed at Kadena Air Base in the U.S Air Force for seven years and served during Desert Storm.
I have been blessed to share the stage with some incredible names like Charlie Daniels, Marshall Tucker, Confederate Railroad, and Jason Aldean.
I truly love playing music and seeing the responses of my fans enjoying the music I'm making. See you soon!!
