Musician and actor Marcus Coloma of “General Hospital” charmed at his live music performance at Hooch and Hive in Tampa, Florida. This event was hosted by CaliBx Experience. #Powerjournalist Markos Papadatos has the recap.

Coloma kicked off his “Acoustic Vibes” set with a distinct cover of Elvis Presley’s “Heartbreak Hotel,” and it was followed by “Knocking on Heaven’s Door,” and a stirring version of “Desperado” by The Eagles.

Equally impressive was his unique version of “Girl Crush” by Little Big Town, and Bryan Adams’s “Everything I Do (I Do It For You).”

It was nice to hear him perform song of his original records such as “Desperate,” which he hadn’t performed in a while, and the fan favorite “Hold On.”

For his encore, he performed a medley of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and the Rolling Stones classic “Wild Horses,” which was an added treat.

It felt like an episode of VH1 Storytellers, where Coloma spoke about the significance of each song and how it helped shape and mold who he is as a contemporary artist.

“Marcus Coloma was so wonderful today in Tampa. His voice is just beautiful and he puts on a great live show,” said Lisa Lynch, fan and attendee.

The Verdict

Overall, Marcus Coloma was able to put on a pleasant live music show at Hooch and Hive, which provided the ideal, intimate setting for a show of this caliber. The food (sliders and salad) at this venue was exceptional, and so was the music and the ultimate fan experience.

Coloma’s rich, rumbling vocals were reminiscent of John Mayer meets Jeff Buckley. His resonant voice was truly made for a coffeehouse setting such as Hooch and Hive.

Once again, this fan event was organized and extremely well done. Kudos to CaliBx Experience for putting on a remarkable fan experience.

On June 24 and 25, Marcus Coloma will be back in New York City for yet another memorable weekend fan experience. For information on that upcoming fan event in the Big Apple, click here.
