NO ORDINARY COVER BAND!

PANIC FIRE (Formerly Category Three)!

          In 2018, Gary Schutt celebrates his 10th years in keeping his cover band vision alive!  In 2008  he left The Untouchables to form his own band and play music he wanted to play.  That band became CATEGORY THREE.  CAT3 was successful and a known name for a long time.  As times change and crowds change and venues change and band members change and …well, Gary had a brainstorm on a long drive home from a gig one night, and from that brainstorm was the birth of PANIC FIRE!  

            Panic Fire, as a cover band, is one of the tightest musically and uniquely diverse bands playing the Tampa Bay scene!  The song list is mostly built around songs that no other bands cover - for better or for worse - they definitely stand out from the rest!  They also take classic songs and pop song and make them our own, nothing is just like the record! 

          We  do an entire night (standard 4 hours) of rock covers!  We've been doing this for many years and are seasoned veterans in the Tampa Bay area cover scene and beyond.  And with our goofiness, you'll never know what will happen live!  It's a hell-of-a show!

          We also take classic songs and pop song and make them our own, nothing is just like the record!

           The PANIC FIRE multimedia video synchronized show (in select venues) is in the works and should be fully realized by late 2018!  Two 42” flatscreens, playing music videos and graphics, and the band performing perfectly in sync to your favorite songs, including one hour non-stop sets of pure 80s pop hits!  Perfect for themed events and parties!  The set breaks will be playing videos of current dance favorites.  
         

           We’ve also invested in more lights to our show.  Four fills, two 5 way effects, four moving heads, six moonflowers and atmospheric fog to see the rays of the effects like at a concert!  Not only a great professional band but also a fantastic visual show!
