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.

You’re tired of not having a music scene, tired of driving out of the city for a good show. Or you are tired of driving out of town to play a show. That’s why we are here. We want something here, something accessible to us, something that we can be proud of and something we enjoy. This isn’t just for the musicians, this is for the teens with nothing to do on a Friday or Saturday night, this is for all the people who love music but have no way of getting to it in other cities. This is for the fans too, and not just one bands fans, but all the music fans in Ocala, and there are a lot of us.

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. The band Mosiac was the most extensively covered and then there were two painstakingly small sidebars about a soloist and Ocala’s Julian and the Heartthrob Heroes. That was it! There are over 25 performing and giging local bands in Ocala and that was it! I was abhored! So in my fury…
