HISTORIC YBOR CITY / TAMPA, FL – Rube is a professional street musician that plays the blues near the Tequilas Rooster Bar on 7th Street in the historic Ybor City neighborhood on Tampa, FL.
Rube’s instrument was a guitar made out of a cigar box, and his music of choice…the blues played with fingers and a glass slide.
Ironically, while Rube was playing near the Rooster Bar, a real rooster was walking on the sidewalk as well.
Roosters are a common site in Ybor City since way back. One rooster became famous back in the day and is featured on the Viva Ybor Mural on 7th Ave.
