Last Saturday, The RITZ Ybor in Tampa, Florida played host to four of the Sunshine State’s hardest rocking acts from the OurStage Takes The Stage Competition. The final four contenders were hand-selected to perform by the fans and judges. Up for grabs? Fat wads of cash for three out of the four lucky finalists and a future gig for the Grand Prize winner.
Take it from us; the heat from the competition was enough to burn the house down, despite the major thunderstorms and a brief power outage that left the crowd wanting more. Hundreds of loyal fans turned out to see which band would be crowned the winner and walk away with $1500 and a sweet gig. Finalists Someday Souvenir, From This Fire, Cure For Caska and Not Tonight Josephine put on an impressive display of showmanship, championing the best of what the burgeoning Florida music scene has to offer. In the end, only three could go home with cash in hand. Check out the winners below:
