Green Piece at the "O Brewer, Where Art Thou?" event in the Tampa Theater

Green Piece is Brad Myers on guitar and Rob Williams on Bass with myself on mandolin! We are stoked to be performing for this great event!

Here is some info:

Tickets are on sale now for Tampa Theatre’s BeerFest 2015, scheduled for Saturday, June 20. Like previous beer-soaked, tongue-in-cheek BeerFest events like The Brews Brothers, The Big Lebrewski and Beer and Loathing in Las Vegas, O Brewer, Where Art Thou? will feature craft beers and local brewers, plus snacks and samples from some of Tampa’s top independent restaurants: RESTAURANTS The Refinery Fodder & Shine The Independent Ella’s Americana Folk Art Cafe New World Brewery Ichicoro Ramen The Urban Canning Co. Craft & Curd SONO Cafe BREWERIES Angry Chair Brewing Barley Mow Brewing Company Cigar City Brewing Coppertail Brewing Co. Late Start Brewery Six Ten Brewing Ulele Spring Brewery Motorworks Brewing Jug & Bottle Dept. Returning BeerFest event co-chairs Michelle Baker, General Manager of The Refinery, and Veronica Danko, owner of The Independent Bar and Cafe, promise that O Brewer, Where Art Thou? will feature enough oddball characters and down-home fun to do the Soggy Bottom Boys proud, including live music from local bluegrass band Green Piece. Patrons are encouraged to dress as their favorite character or come in an “O Brewer”-inspired costume. And though the theme may be silly, the purpose is most serious: Now in its 4th year, the (almost) annual BeerFest is one of Tampa Theatre’s favorite fundraising events, benefitting the historic movie palace’s artistic and educational programs, as well as its ongoing preservation and restoration. A limited-capacity premium sampling begins at 7:00 p.m., and advance-sale tickets are $70. Grand sampling ticket-holders can enter at 8:00 p.m., and advance-sale tickets are $45. The curtain closes on BeerFest 2015 at 10:00 p.m. Tampa Theatre Members save $5 off advance-sale prices, and any remaining tickets will be $75 (premium) and $50 (grand) day-of. Tickets will be available at the Tampa Theatre Box Office or online ($3 convenience fee applies).
