Closing out this last summer, musician and bartender Steve Romo and the newly dubbed Flycatcher (the club formerly known as PLUSH), put together an idea for a “Late Night” style variety show hosted by Mr. Romo himself. The name of the show “Romo Tonight Live”. The idea was actually something Romo had been kicking around since childhood. It was just a matter of destiny. Its launch played to a packed house and has continued to grow in popularity. With local community artist and business owner interviews, a live house band, as well as musical guests, the show does not disappoint. Romo’s upbeat persona, anecdotal storytelling and interaction with his audience keeps the tone light and fun. The comedy shoots from the hip, is off the cuff and most definitely not for kids. Drinking is encouraged. Banter between stage and crowd is had. Born of Tucson and about Tucson, Romo’s love for his city has created an interesting addition to the nightlife here and he’s just getting started.
