Sacred Grounds is such a unique coffee shop in Tampa located just down the street from Busch Gardens! A detailed menu of specialty drinks, shelves filled with books, board games, and artwork, the stage lined with instruments, a full PA system, colorful tapestries strewn across the walls, a fish take set in between two large windows that look out onto Busch Blvd and the nicest sweetest most welcoming owner, Karen. It was our first time playing music in a coffee shop that was so special and supportive of the arts!! We had a lot of fun playing our songs for everyone and we definitely want to come back to Tampa and play here again in 2015 🙂
The last time Diwas and I were in Florida was just before we formed something that could be called a band. If I remember correctly, it was springtime a few years ago. We were hanging out in the kitchen of my mom’s house having a lazy vacation morning and I checked my email, or facebook messages, to find a show invite. Diwas had been playing solo shows in Ithaca that year, and I jumped up to sing with him every now and then. Whatever it was when we did songs together, our friend was inviting us to play a show with other local bands and wondering what name he should use for our act on the bill.
Flash forward to now, we’re ‘The Rungs’ and we’re back in Florida to play a show this Friday!!!
Sacred Grounds Coffee Shop is where we will be Friday 12/26 at 9pm.
…..So obviously that is where you should be too 🙂 Here is the FB EVENT
