Heather’s Hope is on a mission to “promote awareness and prevention of domestic violence through education and public service.” Recently TRC had the opportunity to help with the efforts of raising awareness about dating violence by showcasing a song called “Sign Language” at a performance of “The Yellow Dress” presented by Heartland For Children hosted on the University of South Florida campus in St. Petersburg this past Sunday. It was a very moving experience that has certainly changed my view of domestic abuse. ABC Action News invited The Real Clash to partner with them this year as they spread hope by visiting different communities throughout Florida with the Taking Action Against Domestic Violence campaign. In meeting many of the different organizations Sunday, we were again extended an invitation to make an appearance. This time we are visiting Lake Hollingsworth with Heather’s Hope during their annual 5K Run/Walk Fundraiser. It is an honor and pleasure to be involved. We hope to see you out next Saturday.

Best of the Bay happens every year and this is the 25th year for Creative Loafing Tampa. The Real Clash was very fortunate to have been selected as the staff pick in 2014. The ‘Best Hip-Hop Ensemble’ category which hadn’t previously existed before TRC, was created so they would have a place to be represented. They achieved this all without one vote or public nomination.
Here it is 2015, time again to vote. The Real Clash has been nominated in the categories that you will find highlighted in the poster here in this post within the Best Hip-Hop Act & Best Local Band in addition to a few we weren’t expecting such as Best R&B/Soul/Funk and Best Experimental. We would really appreciate all votes cast in the main two nominee spots and it you feel obliged, please cast your chads into the other cats too.
Welcome! The Real Clash (TRC) is on a mission. That mission is to release their first ever full length recording. This effort is the result of many years of grinding and finally the time is here. We feel great about what we have done. All of the sleepless nights and long hours in the studio has lead us to this final moment. There is just one dilemma…WE NEED HELP! The album is presently in the mix stages and after that it’s onto mastering then duplication. The one thing holding up the project is the lack of sufficient funding. We tried the crowdfunding route through Kickstarter and while $1,125 was pledged, we couldn’t keep any of it. Maybe the timing wasn’t right. There is a great product just waiting to be born taking its rightful space among other amazing recordings we just need cash. The amount that we are short to give this thing a fair shot in the world is $3000 with $500 of that capital from recent donations already sitting in an account. We are still accepting not through any crowdfunding site but through our own efforts “Donate-A-Dollar“. We wanted to make it easier for a larger amount of the listeners to give.
A project so fresh can only happen with the sincere assistance of the people who actually matter, those who we make the music for…YOU! All of us hope that you come out and support us. It’s so serious we had to book the best house in town…The Palladium. Let’s pack the house!!!! Tell everyone you know that the world needs “The Real Clash“!
Today we were lucky to have been a part of the Studio 10 performance line up again and let the people know that we are much bigger than music. Check out the interview co-hosted by the beautiful Roxanne Wilder and Debra G. Schrills. Thank you for all your support!

Here’s a list of who you will catch at this year’s soiree:
“The Real Clash” has been waiting a long time get on the Gasparilla Music Festival and show and prove themselves worthy. It’s finally happening. 2015 has already proven to be very beneficial. The album is about to come out so the timing is perfect. Make sure you don’t miss the insane TRC Experience on the Tibbetts Stage on Sunday, March 8, 2015. We are scheduled to tear the stage down at 1:15 PM. DON’T BE LATE!
The Real Clash will have the pleasure of warming up the stage for “nine-time Grammy Award nominee” singer, songwriter, and actress (portraying legendary gospel singer Mahalia Jackson in the Selma to Montgomery march and Martin Luther King, Jr. 2014 biopic, Selma), Ledisi. This may be their biggest show to date. To quote front man and co-founder Rashad “Shadcore” Harrell, “All of Tampa Bay will know who we are after this”. It’s certainly a great opportunity for the crew branding themselves as the #1 All Live [instrumentation] Hip-Hop collective in Tampa Bay. The Real Clash just doesn’t play, they have been proven to provide an experience. Be there at 2:45 today and you’ll find out what I’m talking about.
