About the Tailgate Tune of the Day
I recently attended the Florida Music Festival in downtown Orlando. It's the second year I've been and it was the second time I went to support my buddy from St. Pete and his band. But this year, I went to more than just his band's show. I wandered around and listened to several bands, and I picked up the program from the organizers so I could check out all the bands that had appeared.
As I started listening to some of the songs I realized there's a lot of great match day or tailgate songs being created by these bands, so I thought it would be good to start featuring one of these each day on the blog and social media.
I'm linking to places where the band has uploaded their own music and making it available, and if you like the songs, I encourage you to go to the band's website and buy their albums. And if you can't afford to buy the album, tell them you like the song and where you heard about their music!
This is my own little tip of the cap to the folks at NPR's All Songs Considered, as well as to Marc Gunn and his excellent Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. If you're a music fan, I highly recommend both of those shows.
Feature Your Song
If you're a fan of an indie band that has a great tailgate song, let me know! I'd love to feature it as the Tailgate Tune of the Day. Send me a link to the band's website on twitter or facebook and tell me the name of the song you want me to feature. I'll listen to it, and if it strikes my fancy as a great song to fire up your tailgate party, I'll add it to my list to post!
