**Registry Spotlight Event**

I have attended Tropical Heatwave a number of times and I can tell you that it’s simply a magical musical experience – so much fun! That, and the fact that proceeds benefit the programming of Tampa Bay’s own WMNF radio is reason enough to shine the #RegistrySpotlight on Tropical Heatwave.
