Tampa Tech Jam 2015
(Tampa, Florida) – This year marks Tampa Bay’s 14th annualTampa Tech Jam. AgileThought, will again be competing at the “Battle of the Bands” competition. The winner is chosen based on which band can produce the most ticket votes. Our band, The Daily Standups, took second place last year. This year, the band re-enters with band members John Allen, Doug McMurtry, Sarah Lyle, Bill Barrett, and Dean Wise. Their music choices range from indie pop to soul and jazz. Be prepared to get your fingers snapping and your hips moving.
Band member Dean Wise, a musician of 35 years who plays both bass guitar and upright bass, and also sings, remarked about the event saying, “I expect the band to be even better this year. I specifically selected music with a much higher level of difficulty in order to show off the talent we have on board. If the ballad in the middle of the set doesn’t make you cry, than you have no heart.”
Doors will open at 5:30pm on Thursday, August 20 at the Ritz in Ybor. The event helps support the local non-profit company, Tech Start, to raise funds to assist at-risk youth in our community pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.
