About The Hot Rod Hornets
The Hot Rod Hornets (hotrodhornets.com) draw from the influences of Sun Record greats Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, and other rockabilly legends. They replicate the authentic 1950s sound that you hear when listening to some of those early rock n’ roll records.
About Locals Night
The brainchild of local, original musician Taylor Reed and her husband Joe Karl, this monthly event was created to develop and foster an original music scene in New Port Richey.
Each month on the last Tuesday, several venues around town host a musician (or band), providing local musicians an opportunity to share their original music with you. The venues vary from an intimate listening room experience, to open mics to allow for all levels of original musicians to participate. Venues interested in hosting a performance and local musician/artists can email [email protected] for booking information.
