Join us as we celebrate Jamaica's 55th anniversary of Independence with Reggae Legend, Beres Hammond! Known for his distinctive brand of "lover's rock", this will be Hammond's debut performance at the historic Capitol Theatre. Over the course of a 30-year career, Hammond has poured his smoky-sweet voice—an instrument of subtlety and power reminiscent of an Otis Redding or a Teddy Pendergrass—over every kind of riddim track. He earned a GRAMMY® nomination for his 2012 chart-topping album One Love, One Life. His other international hits include Tempted to Touch, Rockaway and They Gonna Talk. Considered Jamaica’s greatest practicing singer/songwriter, anyone who has listened to his CDs or experienced the fervor elicited by his live performances would undoubtedly agree with that top-ranking assessment. Beres’s sophisticated musical taste is well suited to translate easily across cultural divides, yet the international reggae massive has remained his most loyal fan base. He did collaborate on Maxi Priest’s first American hit, How Can We Ease The Pain, in 1990. A brief encounter with Elektra Records in 1994 yielded the excellent but under-appreciated album In Control with its R&B-flavored single No Disturb Sign. [less-]

On tour in support of his new album So You Wannabe An Outlaw, Grammy Award-winner Steve Earle and The Dukes make a stop at the Capitol Theatre! So You Wannabe an Outlaw is an homage to outlaw music and dedicated to Waylon Jennings, who died in 2002. “I was out to unapologetically ‘channel’ Waylon as best as I could.” says Earle. “This record was all about me on the back pick-up of a Fender Telecaster on an entire record for the first time in my life. The singing part of it is a little different. I certainly don’t sound like Waylon Jennings.” Earle is a country rebel with a rock and roll attitude. His unwillingness to conform to the rules of Nashville or rock & roll meant that he never broke through into either genre's mainstream. Instead, he cultivated a dedicated cult following and racked up critical acclaim for songs such as Copperhead Road and Fearless Heart. [less-]

The Psychedelic Furs on The Singles Tour with special guest BASH & POP  arrive at the Capitol Theatre!

What is power2give.org?

It’s Tampa Bay’s new funding platform for local arts organizations! The concept is simple: Nonprofit organizations list needs for a specific project – for example, costumes for an upcoming show or instruments for undeserved children. Visitors to the site choose the project that matches their interests or touches their hearts and make a donation. The donation may be as little as $5 but that very important contribution supports local arts and enables creativity to flourish.
With tools and resources for both donors and cultural organizations, power2give.org makes posting, donating and promoting projects convenient and engaging. On power2give, all gifts are processed even if the project only receives partial funding. Unlike some crowd funding sites, you keep the money you raise whether you hit your target or not. Projects are listed on the site for a maximum of 90 days, or until they meet their financial goals.

Who can post projects?

You may post a project if:

  • You represent a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts and cultural organization located in Hillsborough or Pinellas Counties that has been registered as a charitable organization with the State of Florida for at least one year at the time of posting
  • You are authorized to post projects on behalf of the 501(c)3 that you represent
  • You hold a valid solicitation agreement in the State of Florida (If you are a professional solicitor, you are registered with the State of Florida and have a valid solicitation agreement with the 501(c)3 that you represent.)
  • You can provide a copy of the organization’s 2012 990 IRS Form

Project Requirements

  • Project funding will be used only for the intended purpose you state on the site
  • Projects posted to the site will only be related to arts and culture organizations
  • Project request amounts will not exceed $10,000.

Artist’s Free Critique

The purpose of Studio 1212 is to provide the opportunity to associate with other artists on an informal  basis; also, to promote group discussions, exhibit work as a group, support open workshops and information exchange regarding the arts. In addition, we endeavor to sponsor art education in our community.
