EVERY VOTE MATTERS

Every Vote Matters

Hi!

First and foremost, THANK YOU! We can’t tell you enough how grateful we are to be here again. The competition was deep. Thousands of bands entered but we made the top 36 NATIONALLY. That is an incredible sensation. Our hopes are to win this so we can fulfill our dreams of playing on the same stages as greats like USHER, THE ROOTS, KINGS OF LEON, WIZ KHALIFA, and GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC among others. Just imagine…

Simply, every vote counts.

In order for TRC to be selected, although our performance may set us apart from the rest dynamically, a VOTE is needed to be awarded the win. We were here last year and missed the mark by a very narrow margin. We want to pick up the pace and have every invitation we turn out have a supporter attached. Check out the cool artists playing this year.

PIECES & C.ROCK
PLEXXAGLASS
GUNTHER
ALBVS
JOHNNY THE GOOD VILLAIN
NATALIE CLARO
DJ CANVAS

Can we count on you?! 😀

Tickets are a nominal $5. That’s doable. 1 person = 1 vote! We had an amazing turn out last year but this year we want to triple that. Every vote matters! Will you help us?!

TRC For The Win

Dreams do come for TRC. We would not be here ranked among the TOP 36 bands in the nation to enter Destination Okeechobee if not for you. Out of 1000’s of entrants it stands true that we have something special to offer the music community at large.

Please join TRC January 22nd at The State Theatre. This is the day that we battle for the spot to play Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival 2017 next to some of the greatest talent that the industry has known. Check out this bold line up!

Insane RIGHT?! We’re super-psyched!!!

So you already know what you have to do. STATE THEATRE. JANUARY 22ND 2017. SEE YOU THERE! 😀 #TRCForTheWin

Local crews have not be selected because voting begins on December 15th but you can help TRC right now.

Here’s what you can do to…

Come ride with us! Join us for our first throw down of the season. It’s going to be a minute before we take another break although well deserved. The name has changed but the message is still the same but this time around with a twist.

Our favorite spot to rock Sleep Inn at Wesley Chapel has welcomed us back for the holiday weekend. Come rain or shine we’re ready to put it down as we always do. Meet us at 7:30PM by the pool for some grub, a few drinks and the best live Hip-Hop this side of the Milky Way.

Click the photo above to RSVP.

Peace!

One More Time

Good afternoon! Thank you for everyone’s support on our journey. There is a plethora of organizations, institutions and individuals who have been instrumental in getting us where we are today.

St. Petersburg College gave us our start. We cannot continue to thank the MIRA program at SPC enough for providing the original platform from which we catapulted into the public arena.

All of the broadcast & print media outlets such as Creative Loafing, TBT, Tampa Bay Times, ABC Action News, Orlando Weekly, WMNF, SPC Radio, WEDU-PBS and others (who may not be mentioned here), have made sure we stayed relevant in the spotlight. You are all amazing!

If it wasn’t for great venues, where would we go to show off what we’ve worked so hard on? Thanks to The Palladium, The Local 662, FUBAR, The Bends, Brass Mug, The Amsterdam, Crowbar, Mkt on 7th, Cuban Club, State Theater, Red Lion Pub, Ringside Cafe, Ruby’s Elixir…and the list goes on. Every stage sparked a different side of TRC that we hope you had the pleasure of experiencing.

We’ve played local and out of town festivals, created compositions for humanitarian causes such as Embrace and Sign Language and plan on continuing to support our community.

Today is the last day that TRC will perform as The Real Clash. Thank you for being there for us and we hope that our presence has awakened hope that the industry is not all about sex, drugs and violence. Our creations touch hearts and peak curiosity.
Although much of the world in the media’s eye is not positive, we wanted our voices to challenge that and lift you up at every turn. This is what Hip-Hop looks like. The Real Clash will forever be Hip-Hop Redefined.

Peace!

TRC

The Summer Weekend Riot Tour

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Real Clash Blog

Unless you catch us at the Tampa Bay June Acoustic Music Showcase this year, #TSWRT is most likely to be our last show for at least a month.

Come out to see what we have going on. I heard there will be raffles for Apple products, Vans Warped Tour tickets and other amazing giveaways. A bit of a warning nudge, dress for the summer. It will get hot.

#DISCLAIMER: We will not be responsible for any hospitalization from dehydration that may occur if the performance sets the stage ablaze (purchase insurance).

Civil Youth was selected as one of the top 4 bands out of 100’s that participated in the battle of the bands. It provided them with the chance to open up for 21 Pilots at this year’s event. Find out the results of that contest soon by following them on Facebook.

Next Friday bare witness to some great sonic wizardry as we open for these boys followed by our friends Natalie Claro & Glass House Point who both are suspected to reveal new music that day. Tickets are available at Ticketfly or before the show by any band member at a reduced rate.

See you soon! Peace! ✌

Dignitary Party @ Hard Rock Tampa

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Real Clash Blog

We were invited by Ian Beckles to perform at the first Dignitary Party hosted at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. It was a great networking experiencing. Many people had an opportunity to witness us in our element. The food was great, Reginald Wrangler and Eric Darius also put on exemplary performances. All in all it was a night most of us will not soon forget.

Here are some photos from the event and our stage show courtesy of Camera Dave and Hard Rock Tampa. See more at shrtphotos.com
