Hello,

 

Here is a tune titled "Down to the Keys" celebrating the Florida Keys, and in particular the City of Key West. This is a rock & roll, road-trip song to help you get to your vacation destination. Drive safely!

 

Hope you enjoy it and can add to your playlist. 

 

Down to the Keys - Drew Barrett

 

Best, 

Drew

Here is a live instrumental dedicated to Montreal...

My favorite Mogwai song. Technically San Pedro is no longer a separate city but I hope it counts 😄

One of the rare French band who played the famous Liverpool Psyche Festival. Unfortunately the Event took a break in 2018. Just hoping it will be back in 2019...

That's a great Bee Gees song from the period before they turn disco 🙂

 

But "Massachusetts" is an American State, not a city 🙂
