Hello ya'll been far too long since I've been on here. I hope everyone is fantastic! Looking forward to seeing your friendly faces at the bamboo room, I'll be there for Thursdays show. 

I need your help please.. If you had to pick one show either Ybor or Jax which one would it be? (I've been to Ybor but never Mavericks) 
Figured I would ask the EXPERTS!! 

thank you!

Since Jax is his hometown, I have to vote for Jax.

Hmmmm.....I am not so much a fan of either venue but given that you've already been to a show at Ybor, maybe give Jacksonville a whirl. Like harmonicas said, it is a hometown venue. Regardless of what you choose, you know you will be guaranteed a GREAT show! And like  the refrain to one of my favorite feel good songs goes,
"Turns out not where but who you're with that really matters!"

Good question Morena. I'll give you my perspectives. Sound system...Mavericks.  Stage and viewing...I'd have to give to the Ritz. The stage is wider, some of the guys have told me that they like a wide stage, gives them room to move a little. The viewing area is wider than Mavericks, more spread right to left. If I recall correctly, Mavericks had the bars well under control. Lonnnggg bars with plenty of bartenders. Easier to get to rest rooms and bars during a show.

As for crowd, atmosphere, etc. that's a tough one. You've been to the Ritz, it's a typical Tampa crowd--a bit metro, a bit not, pretty big age range (although not to the extent of Skippers), rowdy but not off the chart rowdy. Mavericks is a more rowdy group, younger, has a bit more west Jax flavor to it. Similar to Freebird. The hometown crowd loves their boys.

Mavericks is a country-themed club. They even have line dancing and a mechanical bull. Different feel from the Ritz entirely with its early bordello feel.
