Tampas Candy Bars are a bit of an enigma. Theres no official band website, and the bands not playing out too much these days, AND you dont know what youre going to get when you do see them. Will it be guitarist/vocalist Daniel Martinez and drummer Ryan Hastings, or Martinez and cellist Melissa Castellano, or all three, or just Martinez? Theres nothing puzzling about the usually-a-duos dynamic, hauntingly original, intelligently poppy sound, though listen to one of Candy Bars effects-assisted live sets or more lushly arranged recordings, and its obvious that this is an ambitious project thats already reached, and maybe surpassed, national-scene caliber. www.myspace.com/candybars.
