It was easy for me to decide who I wanted to interview for my first monthly feature of a local band; Cultellarii a local dark rock band. Everyone would naturally assume that I would choose the band I manage, but I chose Cultellarii because of how much I enjoy the people involved with it and how amazing the music is. I have only done one event with Cultellarii, but it left a lasting impression on me, not to mention their music is right up my alley.

Why Ocala Magazine? Why?

On September 23, 2010 By

Upon doing some reading the other day I discovered that Ocala Magazine proclaimed to have a ‘comprehensive look at the area’s thriving arts community’ and I was overjoyed because I assumed that they, being a hip magazine leading in readers aged 18-25, would touch on the local music scene. I was quickly disappointed. In the whole section dedicated to this ‘State of the Arts’ there were i believe three musicians covered.

There are over 25 performing and giging local bands in Ocala and that was it! I was abhored! So in my fury…
