The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have locked and loaded the cannons for the 2019 NFL season and have brought in the captain’s of a ship named ‘StreetLaced’ to dock once again at Raymond James Stadium at the beach-themed destination, appropriately named, “Bucs Beach”, which is located just outside of the stadium on the South Plaza footprint (Tom McEwen Blvd).
This is Street Laced’s second straight year handling the entertainment, sound & staging, DJ’s, emcee’s, artists and everything in between at the new hot spot at Ray Jay to pre-game.
“Bucs Beach is meant to create an experience in how we re-imagined the South Plaza space,” Atul Khosla, Bucs Chief Corporate Development and Brand Officer, told the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
“You will find everything from sand to the chairs, hammocks, tiki huts, local artists, food trucks, [Street Laced] DJ’s entertaining the crowds and corporate partners activating in that space,” Khosla said.
“We could not be more thrilled to continue to add to that excitement on game days. Entertaining fans is really our A-game and with a full season under our belt, we know how we can add to that WOW factor! It’s time to bring it up a notch”, said Blaise Potts, President of Street Laced Marketing.
“We have a very good understanding of the vision the Buccaneers’ organization has created for their fans, and this area has surely added to the game day experience. With the caliber of local/national talent and entertainers that Street Laced brings to the table, the Buccaneers made the right choice in partnering with us again. We are so ready to get back to work!”
Street Laced will be handling all entertainment aspects for Bucs Beach, including Tampa Bay’s most popular DJ’s, Street Laced DJ’s/95.7 The Beat’s own DJ Jimi-O and DJ Shizm, who plays the role of Lifeguard (host) on the beach, local Tampa Bay artists (live art installations) including the very talented Cam Parker, Michael Vahl, & Geary “Rasta” Taylor , roving & stationary entertainers, stilt walkers, performances of all sorts are just a few of the sights and sounds you’ll see this season.
There will also be food trucks and specialty items, partnership activation areas, interactive photo opportunities and so much more in front of Bucs Beach.
But, we’re not just done there!
Street Laced has once again secured DJ Ekin as another entertainment element inside Raymond James Stadium. Ekin will be DJ’ing LIVE from the Buccaneers Pirate Ship during the pre-game festivities! If you find yourself moving and grooving before kick-off, you can thank DJ Ekin for providing the soundtrack! The concept was the newest announcement at the stadium for 2018-2019, which was on the cusp of its $160 million renovation completion.
