Heather’s Hope Annual 5K Run/Walk Event

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Real Clash Blog

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.

The Real Clash BEST OF THE BAY 2015

#BOTB25 CLTAMPA.COM/BOTB25
VOTE “THE REAL CLASH” BEST OF THE BAY 2015


Opinions are like… well, you know. But in Creative Loafing’s annual guide to the Best of the Bay, we celebrate that fact. Our writers and editors share their variously ecstatic, indignant and ironic opinions of everything from new restaurants to new political outrages, from tiny shops to towering achievements. And our readers share their views of what’s best and worst in our annual Readers’ Poll.” – Creative Loafing Tampa, 2013 


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.

The Clash Wednesday Benefit Show

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Real Clash Blog

The Real Clash Benefit Show (2)


 

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.

TRC really hopes that this concert featuring amazing performances from some of the Best in the Bay and beyond, will aid in raising what will help us put out this beautiful body of work “Clash Wednesday”. We’ve have asked our friends “La Lucha“, “Lions After Dark“, Austin Vickrey, Dr. David R. Manson of the “Helios Jazz Orchestra“, Rahim Samad (DJ/MC) and Fae Nageon De Lestang of Flat Land (Gainesville), most of who are featured on “Clash Wednesday“, to come and perform with us so that we could give you the best show possible. We’re not trying to waste your time, just want you to know how serious we are.

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“!

Rocking The Park

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.
