Coco Nights
Written By: Brenda Golden
Coco Nights     Here we are at the end of 2017 and I’m feeling excitement and hope for 2018. I know it’s been a rough year for many of us so we’re looking forward to a new beginning, right? After a whirlwind of Christmas parties (I hope you had a wonderful Christmas), we’ll be welcoming the new year with one more party to end the holiday season on New Year’s Eve.  As I’m writing this on the last day of 2017,  my plan for the night is to be with the people I love. Of course, that is all of my musician friends but time and logistics dictate that I can only go to a few places. I would like to start at the OC Fishing Company to hear Lauren Glick & David Tarlecki. Next I want to see my friends Michael Smith & Rita Conestabile as Pearl playing at Bourbon St. on the Beach. And I plan to finish the night with my family of friends to hear Randy Lee Ashcraft & The Salt Water Cowboys at Johnny’s Pizza Pub. Being with t...

Coco Nights     What’s happening out there, my friends? A lot since we last talked. Well, two major events for me. First, that Old School band reunion I advertised and promoted for Sunday, Nov. 19 at BJ’s was a total ruse, unbeknownst to me. I still cannot believe that so many people kept such a top secret from me for so long. When I walked through the door at BJ’s that day, I was completely blind-sided by the crowd of well-wishers there to celebrate my birthday early (it’s really Feb. 5). I don’t think it sunk in until I saw my two daughters and grandkids among my many friends. It was really more of a recognition of the many years I have promoted entertainment and tourism in Ocean City. I started in this business around 1991 or ‘92 working in the art department of the Maryland Coast Dispatch. Journalism is serious business there but I campaigned to write a column about our incredible musical community. I finally got the green light and my first a...

Coco Nights     Hi, all. It’s been two weeks since I said I’m all partied out (all those Halloween parties) and I’ve certainly had some rest but still I’ve been out to hear my favorite bands and that’s going to continue as we enter the holiday season. Let’s start with BJ’s on the Water that is staging a huge weekend of music and fun.     First I want to say a few words about Bird Dog & the Road Kings who appeared at BJ’s last Saturday. I’ve known and enjoyed the music of Byrd Dog Wheeler for more than 40 years and I can tell you he’s not slowing down any time soon. In fact, Byrd tells me that he and the Road Kings are working on their 8th album to follow last year’s Somerset County and before that, Bona-fide, Certified, Basic Eastern Shore Redneck USA. This CD title leads one to wonder what kind of music they play. To me it’s the epitome of Americana covering many genres but focusing on origi...
