Tropico BLVD bring sounds and sights to St. Petersburg
By Dylan Hart
Tropico Blvd turned The Ale and the Witch into a hectic light show Jan. 25, spewing smoke, spinning fire and pouring out their personal musical mixture into St. Petersburg.
Consisting of frontman Miguel Lantigua, singer and multi-instrumentalist Audri Short, bassist Dan Gaily and drummer Adam Mann, Tropico Blvd blends genres to create upbeat yet intricate music.
While they ordinarily have keyboardist and saxophonist Cody Moore, he was touring for St. Petersburg-based band The Hip Abduction. Therefore, Tropico Blvd was joined for the performance by keyboardist Mike Mayea, whom Lantigua describes as “the best keyboard player in this whole region.”
“We are Tropico Blvd,” Lantigua said after the band’s first song. “You can find us by following the Sign.”
