Chasco Fiesta™ Showcases Country Recording Artist Chase Bryant
And Special Guest Drew Baldridge with Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road
Celebrating the 100-year anniversary of Chasco Fiesta at Sims Park in downtown New Port Richey, Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road presents country recording artist Chase Bryant and special guest Drew Baldridge on Saturday, April 2 at 7 pm and Night Ranger with special guest Fire & Ice on Sunday, April 3 at 7 pm.
Presented along the banks of the beautiful Pithlachascotee River, the Chasco Fiesta is one of the longest-running and known events in Pasco County. Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road has expanded their partnership with Chasco Fiesta organizers to present the headlining artist for both weekend concerts.
Chase Bryant and special guest Drew Baldridge:
Chase Bryant (RIGHT) grew up dreaming of a life in music, inspired in part by his grandfather, who performed with Roy Orbinson and Waylon Jennings, and his uncles, who co-founded the chart-topping band Ricochet. Those dreams came true faster than Bryant could have anticipated, though, and by the age of 21-years-old, he already had two Top 10 singles and tours with the likes of Brantley Gilbert and Tim McGraw. Recorded in the aftermath of a season of darkness and despair, Bryant’s album Upbringing is a searing, honest portrait of struggle and resilience from a songwriter finally learning to love and trust himself, flaws, and all. The music is raw and exhilarating, captured live for the most part with an all-star band under the guidance of writer/producer Jon Randall (Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley), and the performances convey a kind of comfort and ease that Bryant’s spent much of his life in search of. Bryant’s stronger now for his struggles, with a clear head, an open heart, and a remarkable full-length debut to show for it. For more information, please visit: www.chasebryant.com.
Opening for Chase Bryant is special guest Drew Baldridge (LEFT), who has achieved enormous success across all aspects of his career and is doing so on his own terms. With over 60 million total catalog streams, Baldridge has carved his own independent path and continues to reach milestone after milestone. He has released four songs in 2021 alone – all of which he co-wrote. His latest release, She’s Somebody’s Daughter, has become a viral sensation with over 50 million TikTok impressions. Signed to Sony Music Publishing, he is also an accomplished songwriter with 300+ songs under his belt. When he is not creating music, Baldridge is on the road performing on his headlining Baldridge & Bonfires Tour. Since his tour began in October 2020 during the pandemic, Baldridge has performed over 150 dates. These are all booked directly through him and driven by his organic, passionate fanbase.

More About Chasco Fiesta:
Chasco Fiesta™ is a 501 (c) 4 not-for-profit organization. Prior to becoming its own not-for-profit organization in 2012, Chasco Fiesta was a committee of the West Pasco Chamber of Commerce. Since 1995, Chasco Fiesta™ has been produced by a steering committee of 10-14 individuals. Chasco has its own bank accounts, expenses, employees and is housed in the Chamber of Commerce Building in Downtown, New Port Richey. (Right previous year showing the diversity of the event!) Great events in Destination Tampa Bay™
Chasco Fiesta™ provides a venue for local and national not for profits to raise funds. With more than thirty not-for-profits benefiting directly from this event, Chasco is not designed as a fundraiser for the Chamber. The Chamber hosts the Golf Tournament and pays the fees to Chasco just like other not-for-profits. Those not-for-profits that participate do so in two different ways: Vending in Sims Park which requires a nine-day commitment from staff and volunteers, and hosting events such as the Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind which hosts the Coronation Ball, and the Sertoma Speech and Hearing Clinic. In 2014, the Chasco Fiesta organization hosted the annual event and assisted twenty-five not-for-profit organizations to raise over $200,000 for their organizations.
