Local legend Ronny Elliott releases new CD
Ronny Elliott has been honing his skills alongside venerable rock veterans, such as Chuck Berry and Gene Vincent, since the mid-1960s. His sonic thrust is an adventurous amalgam of country, rock, blues and soul. Elliott’s intensively honest, thought-provoking wordplay is pure Americana poetry, sung in a low, craggy voice that ranges from an angry howl to an earnest plea.
To celebrate the release of his latest album, Magneto, Skipper’s is throwing the local legend a CD release party. Rocking, twangy, comical and moving, Magneto just might be Elliott’s finest effort to date. The Nationals – some of the most accomplished musicians the Bay area has to offer, will join Elliott on stage. If you have never witnessed Elliott’s unique brand of hillbilly soul before, come out and see for yourself why everyone from Entertainment Weekly to Rolling Stone Germany has sung his praises.
- Walt Bucklin, bassist for The Nationals, will open the show with a solo set.
- Ronny Elliott and The Nationalswill perform at Skipper’s Smokehouse in North Tampa on Saturday at 8 p.m. For tickets/info call 971-0666.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
