BAAMO (that's short for Bay Area Arts & Music Organization, Inc.) is dedicated to promoting Tampa Bay’s music and art to the rest of the country and the world.
Since 2003, BAAMO has hosted the Florida Bandango, an unofficial showcase of Tampa Bay music and musicians held on the first afternoon of the world famous South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Conference in Austin, Texas.
Other projects include producing compilation CD’s featuring Tampa Bay talent and distributing this music to non-commercial and college radio stations across North America and Europe, and organizing various fund-raising concerts.
BAAMO operates as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation in the State of Florida. All donations are fully deductible and go directly towards helping BAAMO spread the word about Tampa Bay talent.
