We are happy to have the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tampa Bay, Inc. as our 'Charity of the Evening' for our April 14 show at Mahaffey Theater in Saint Petersburg, Florida. The Ronald McDonald House has 4 houses and offers 80 bedrooms to families as their home-away-from-home during a difficult time when their children are being treated at local hospitals in the Tampa, Florida or Saint Petersburg, Florida areas. In 2013, they cared for 1683 families from 35 states and 11 countries for an average of 8 days each, providing them with meals, bedrooms, playrooms, computer rooms, laundry, volunteers and staff and Wifi.
The Ronald McDonald House will receive the profit from our live wrapped guitar auction and the sale of our collectible tour book, which buyers can have autographed after the show at our meet 'n greet table, along with photographs with the cast of Rock Stars & Stripes.
Tickets are available on the Mahaffey Theater website, bit.ly/2l2BL6E or by calling the theater at 727.893.7832.

We L-O-V-E to learn about the communities where Rock Stars & Stripes is performing - it's the foundation of our show! When this 'rock n roll trip across America' stops in the City of St. Petersburg, Florida USA at Mahaffey Theater on April 14, we will have to trek across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge that spans the Tampa Bay along I275/SR55, just to stroll out on the Skyway Fishing Pier State Park.
Our chief Rocktective, Lily Horst, was witness to the May 9, 1980 disaster that caused a span of the bridge to collapse. Lily spent her honeymoon in the Orlando, Florida and Tampa, Florida areas, and during that horrible thunderstorm, took off from Tampa International Airport about 8am, and through the foggy clouds, caught a glimpse of the bridge, but did not realize she was looking at a disaster that claimed 35 lives.
The north and south spans were left intact after demo of the old bridge and is now the very popular Skyway Fishing Pier State Park, North Skyway Fishing Pier, and South Skyway Fishing Pier/S owned by Florida State Parks. It is the world's longest fishing pier. ... See MoreSee Less
Part of our mission with the Rock Stars & Stripes show is to discover some of the amazing things about the places we are performing. Turns out St. Petersburg, Florida houses the best restaurant in Florida!
What an honor to have The Mill Restaurant featured in Florida Trend Magazine as Best New Restaurant and Yelp Best Restaurants voters also selected them as Best Restaurant in St. Pete! In 2015, Chef Ted Dorsey was named Best Chef by Creative Loafing Tampa Best of the Bay, and in 2016 SPDNA Sunshine Award for Best Fine Dining.
Chef Ted thinks out of the box with dishes like watermelon bruschetta, zucchini fries, lamb shank pot pie and garnishings like duck bacon and stinky blue cheese. The menu items are unique for sure, and reviews are somewhat along the line of 'to die for'. Kudos to the team of Chef Ted Dorsey, Jason Griffin and Zach West. ... See MoreSee Less
