On Friday, Jan. 26, Tampa hosted the NHL All-Star Friday Night Concert at Curtis Hixon park. The free event featured food trucks, special guest appearances, and performances by the bands Moon Taxi and Fitz and the Tantrums.

Before the show, 93.3 FLZ host, Scotty Davis, introduced famous Lightning hockey players, such as Steven Stamkos.

“[Stamkos] is such a nice dude. His hockey career is illustrious, he is a fantastic captain, and he really rallies the team even when they’re not doing so well,” Maddie Troy (‘19)

Then, pirates from the Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla came out on stage and threw beads to the crowd, building excitement for the Gasparilla weekend.

Moon Taxi opened with a short set at around 8:30 p.m. before Fitz and the Tantrums’ performance, which lasted until around 10:30 p.m.

“My favorite song is the one about hand clapping, and it was so good live,” Katherine Nitchals (‘18)

On Sat. Jan. 27, the All-Stars Skills competition was held. Sunday, Jan. 28’s All-Star game concluded the NHL festivities.
