During the pandemic, Coast Brothers made the decision to ‘lean in’ and show our love for Tampa Bay by supporting first responders, local restaurants, soup kitchens and the art community. As part of this decision, we hired local muralists Derek Donnelly and The Vitale Brothers to paint our company trucks, honoring legendary artist Billy Woo in the process. We documented this brilliant artwork and originally, we chose some popular music for the project, but Facebook (and Dave Grohl) wouldn’t give us the rights to promote it, so we thought, hey, if we are using local muralists, local venues, why not LOCAL MUSICIANS too??
And thus began the contest.
