Coco Nights

Coco Nights     Here we go! Hot rods were spotted on Wednesday and by now the town is roaring into high gear as these fabulous cars show off up and down Coastal Hwy. Don’t let slow traffic spoil your mood. Be patient, enjoy the sights; you will get to your destination eventually.     Last week I told you I was going to hear a new band playing at BJ’s - The Girlfriends. Turns out they’re not new to BJ’s at all. The all-girl group played there in the mid ‘80s when the Wednesday deck parties were actually on the outdoor deck. Owner Billy Carder says that when he heard they were playing again, he got in touch and hired them; and we’re glad he did. The ladies played an impressive range of music going back as far as the ‘60s before women played behind the guitar but were only heard behind the mic. It was fun hearing those old songs again.

Coco Nights     Hi, everyone. With Springfest behind us, we’re well on our way into the summer season of 2017. Can you believe it?! I hope you’re as excited about all the great music coming our way as I am. Let’s start with one of the biggest supporters of live music, BJ’s on the Water. With never a cover, we enjoy the best live entertainment year ‘round. Owner Billy Carder is stirring the pot (so to speak) with a new group appearing on his stage tonight, Friday the 12th of May. He tells me he has known the ladies for a long time and is excited to have them perform here. Called The Girlfriends, these three musicians from Philadelphia were very popular in the ‘80s playing orignal and cover tunes. They’re back together again and coming to our town.

Coco Nights     Well, hello there, Coconut Times readers. Here we are at Springfest and the beginning of our weekly posts. With all this wind I’m reminded of what dearly departed hubby Ronnie always called it - Windfest! Yep, he always said that when he would see those tents go up, he knew there would be no fishing. But I’m sure some wind and maybe even a stormy Friday are not going to keep folks from attending this annual event. There will be tons of great entertainment including our own Randy Lee Ashcraft and the Salt Water Cowboys appearing onstage in the big tent on Friday at 4 pm. On Sunday at 4:30 pm, Sir Rod (Tommy Edward) will close the entertainment on the outdoor stage with his rockin’ tribute to Rod Stewart.     There’s more great entertainment on the way with a new show presented at the Ocean City Performing Arts Center on Saturday, May 13. Get your tickets now for Rat Pack Together Again! Check out the ad under Best Places on this...
