LARGO - Area music lovers will have an opportunity to spend an evening with Andy McKee as he performs Saturday, Oct. 24, 8 p.m., at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive.

Tickets start at $19.50. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com.

According to his biography at Monterey International, Andy McKee is one of the world’s finest acoustic soloists.

Born in Topeka, Kansas, McKee initially gained attention after receiving more than 20 million views collectively for his YouTube videos. The videos were posted by the independent record label Candyrat. McKee’s atypical route to success is a testament to the changing nature of the music industry. His popularity also testifies to people’s insatiable desire to seek out new and innovative musicians.

At one point, Andy held the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 positions for Top-Rated Videos of All Time on YouTube. His videos continue to be among the highest rated on the website - and, because of the exposure he received online, McKee routinely performs to sold out shows all over the world.

ST. PETERSBURG - MarchFourth Marching Band will bring their breathtaking live show to the Tampa Bay area with a performance set for Friday, Oct. 24, at the State Theatre, 687 Central Ave.

Doors will open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $24 the day of the show. Visit www.statetheatreconcerts.com.

Since their inception in Portland, Oregon, in 2003, the group has become recognized as one of the nation’s busiest and best live touring acts playing close to 200 shows a year. MarchFourth Marching Band is much more than what its name might indicate. The performance is a visual and aural feast, with around 20 performers including approximately eight horn players, five drummers, bass guitar, and five dancers, stilt walkers and acrobats. It fuses Vaudeville and high cinema, with a hint of Mardi gras, anchored by groovy electric bass, rocking guitar, Eastern European Gypsy music, funk, rock and jazz. M4 is 100 percent original, including the music, costumes, choreography, and merchandise.

M4’s song “Gospel” from their 2009 release, “Rise Up,” was prominently featured in the summer of 2013 Disney hit movie, “Monsters University.” In 2011, the band released their third studio effort, “Magnificent Beast,” produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, featuring the single “Shindig.” The ensemble recently completed a State Department-sponsored cultural exchange tour of China. A documentary film of that tour is in the works for a spring of 2015 release.

CLEARWATER - On tour in support of their latest album release Revelation, Grammy Award-winning band Los Lonely Boys have announced U.S. tour dates, which includes a stop at the Capitol Theatre on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. 

Revelation (LonelyTone imprint in association with Playing in Traffic) is a landmark release for the siblings, JoJo Garza (bassist/vocalist), Henry (vocals, guitar) and Ring (drums, vocals). While maintaining the infectiously melodic mix of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and rootsy brown-eyed soul that’s long endeared Los Lonely Boys to its fiercely loyal fan base, Revelation adds an expansive range of new sonic elements, e.g. the conjunto touches of Blame It On Love, the reggae groove of Give A Little More, the rustic acoustic textures of It’s Just My Heart Talkin’ and the baroque pop elements of There’s Always Tomorrow.
