Live Music Series

Sunday, November  6th

12:30 -1:30 Steve Vaclavik

Tampa resident Steve Vaclavik is a troubadour in the tradition of Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt. His songs are full of the truth as seen by ordinary people. These people often tend to be life’s underdogs, and Steve has the special gift to capture their perspectives on the world with genuine understanding. His words, full of humor and insight, are the essence of his music, but his Dylan-esque vocals and spare guitar playing provide a fitting framework that rings true and clear.

Steve’s style is Reggae Funk-crossing over Rhythms and Cultures w/ Lyrics of Liberation..
