"This Is Key West Calling" Is calling out for Trop Rock artists!

This is Key West Calling is a very, very unique event held on Sunday, November 4th from 11 am – 4 pm at Sunset Tiki at The Galleon in Key West.

The event will be broadcast live by the absolute best Trop Rock radio stations on the planet Radio Trop Rock, Tiki Man Radio, Beach Bar Radio, 104.9 The X, Tiki Pod Radio and Shore Life Radio! These stations will be all working together at the event!

Additionally, Digital Publishing will be airing the video of the event on the web live, as well as Shore Live TV.

Beachfront Radio is planning on airing the show subsequently, while Island Time Radio and Songwriter's Island Radio hope to air particular performances subsequently as well.

This is a TRMA recognized event.

Having six stations working together on the same broadcast has never been done by anyone else in the history of radio. Butting heads is old school. Working together for the advancement of Trop Rock is our way. Therefore, it's newsworthy! We're sending out press releases to all of the major news agencies, both national and international.

The entire purpose of this event is to promote the growth of Trop Rock Music

Having this event during MOTM is a natural, as so many Trop musicians are here in Key West, enjoying the event and getting a lot of exposure to both new and old fans. With six Trop Rock stations broadcasting the event live, two live video feeds, and three additional stations/shows rebroadcasting the event, either in whole or in part, it's more than obvious that this event will have the largest media reach by far, of any event during MOTM week, no matter what venue.

While the exposure is a super-major plus, showing the world that we all work together for the benefit of the genre, is the name of the game here. We have a great genre that is 100% positive! Let's show the world! 

The objective is to bring more fans into the fold. Let's face it, there are people out there that like Trop Rock, but don't even know it exists. We'd like to change that and help Trop Rock grow into a better-known genre. We'll be starting off with this event and hoping to branch out with others during the next year.

If you are a solo performer, duo, or band who would like to participate in the event, here are the basics.

  1. Sets are twenty minutes long
  2. The turn around is 5 minutes to set up/5 minutes to tear down.
  3. Maximum players on stage, 3
  4. This is a non-paying event.
  5. Hold membership in the TRMA

We are hoping for both seasoned Trop Rock artists, up and coming artists, and anyone in between! If you would like to help us promote Trop Rock to the world and help attract new fans to the genre by playing this event, please contact me at:

Thank you!
