Blood, Sweat & Tears
If you get annoyed by the bagpipes and Irish razzmatazz involved with St. Paddy's, St. Pete's Mahaffey Theater gives you a chance to you to catch some jazz-rock with Blood, Sweat and Tears instead.

BST is down to one original member, Bobby Colomby, but even with an eight-piece band composed of a new generation of musicians, it still feels like the '70s when the band is in the room. For the first time since its gig at Clearwater Jazz Holiday 2019, Blood, Sweat, and Tears will take on the older hits, with no opening act beside it.

If you miss this one, the band behind "Spinning Wheel" will be back in Florida come May as part of Epcot's Garden Rocks Concert Series in Orlando.
