Florida rules

Orlando. Drive to the beach, maybe back next week….? Here on brief vacation. In the short time working with Five Eight, I’ve already begun to massively appreciate the state of Florida. Tallahassee, Pensacola, Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando too. Why? -it’s Five Eight’s fans. Contributing to and following the band’s social media has made me fall in love with Florida. One fan from Tampa driving 5 hours to Albany Ga for the 12/21 show, others from FL expressing their love and appreciation for the boys and asking them to please come back to the state to play. As a Midwesterner who has only lived in 3 cold cities (Chicago, Madison, and St. Louis)—FL fans have opened the door and let in the virtual sunshine on my late fall grey rust belt Midwestern days (or is it daze?) Thanks for your enthusiasm FL. The sunshine state is awesome–

  1. I opened for 5-8 a bunch in the 90’s at the Brass Mug in Tampa. I even booked them at the Tampa Theater on the Gasolina tour. One of my favorite bands ever. Let me know if I can ever help out with a show or place to crash in the Twin Cities or Tampa Bay(I’m a snowbird). Cool website and 5-8 updates!

  2. Florida will always have a place for 5-8. You can crash at our place anytime in the ‘burbs of Fort Lauderdale or our other place in Miami.

  3. That goes for me too. 5-8 can crash in Boca Raton at our house. Hope you get to South Florida. Its been way too long since I’ve seen my old buds.
