Medal Militia (Metallica tribute) + Midnight Vice (metal / hard rock)

Founded in late 2012 by lead guitarist James O’Brien while stationed at Mayport Naval Station, Medal Militia has in the years since come to be regarded by many as Florida’s premier Metallica tribute act. O’Brien is joined onstage by retired Navy Chief Jim Pyle on lead vocals and rhythm guitar and Acting Petty Officer Kyle Coe on drums while civilian Troy Taylor handles bass guitar and backing vocals, bringing literal military precision to the entire Metallica oeuvre.

Flying the flag for classic heavy ‘80s bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Skid Row, Mercyful Fate, and fellow Tampa Bay legends Savatage, Midnight Vice supercharges their heaviness with a modern approach, delivering high voltage and highly melodic heavy metal without apology. Initially formed in 2020, the current lineup of guitarist Sam Bean, drummer Dennis O’Sullivan, bassist Tank McDowell, and frontman Tyler Gray solidified the following year. The quartet is a familiar fixture on local stages and also ventures far afield including an upcoming date at the legendary Whisky A Go Go in LA.

Regular online advance ticket sales end at midnight the night before the show.

Day-of online ticket sales end at 3pm on show day.

Walk-up tickets sales begin 30 minutes before doors.
