Venue Profile #2 - The Red Rose Room

Published by Rich Van Voorst at 10:21 AM

Although The Red Rose Room has hosted live jazz for over three years, for the last year and a half, it has been the home of The Freetime Trio. The group plays every Tuesday and Wednesday night from 6-9 p.m. and performs various styles of jazz. Their repertoire includes various jazz standards, show tunes, and crooner tunes, as well as some original compositions by the members of the band.

The trio is headed up by Jody Marsh on piano, joined by his son Ryan Marsh on the drums. The group has had many bass players through the years, but currently Alejandro Arenas, who seems to be popping up everywhere in Tampa, occupies the bass chair.

The Red Rose Room itself has been described as one of the most elegant and romantic places to dine in Plant City. The vibe of the restaurant is intimate, romantic and professional. The live jazz compliments the room and is not overpowering thus creating a wonderfully relaxing place to hear creative straight-ahead jazz.

Located within the Ramada Plantation House Inn.
