About Tropico Blvd

Pronounced Traw-PEE-Koh The quirky, soulful, sun-shine fueled rock band from St Petersburg that sounds like summer on acid. A five-piece with a large sound & a communal vibe that combined with their strong songwriting with dual singers bring an energetic & hypnotic live show. Their influences include Phish, Fleetwood Mac, Arcade Fire, & The Grateful Dead.

Founded in Brooklyn, NY by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Miguel Lantigua in 2014, Tropico Blvd’s first show was at a loft party, yet the band quickly made a name for themselves. After a copy of Lantigua’s demo got into the hands of an engineering assistant of producers Dan Grigsby (Joe Cocker, The Rolling Stones) & Ron London (Dave Matthews Band) the two offered to help him record parts of what would later become the groundwork for Tropico’s first album It’s Gonna Be a Good Day

In 2016 Lantigua moved to St Petersburg, FL to reform the group with rhythm section bassist Dan Gaily & drummer Adam Mann; In late 2017, guitarist & vocalist Audrey Short & The Hip Abduction keyboardist and saxophonist Cody Moore joined the lineup increasing their production and sound significantly. The combination of Short & Lantigua’s harmonies and the band’s clever songwriting has become a part of their defining sound.

Tropico Blvd released their studio single ‘The Rails’ in 2019 establishing a new direction in the group. In 2020, they founded their indie music label Elseware Playhaus releasing their singles ‘Drunk Uncle’, ‘Rocks Fall’ & most recently ‘Slide’. The band is currently recording and producing their upcoming LP ‘Neighborhood Watch’.
