Coco Nights

Coco Nights     It’s Sunfest and the last day of Summer. Happy to report that good weather is projected for the entire weekend with temps in the low ‘80s. I’m anxious to get there and hear Randy Lee Ashcraft & the Salt Water Cowboys on the outdoor stage and after them, Teenage Rust in the big tent; but I’ll take a few minutes to chat with you all.     We all enjoyed the music of The Girlfriends at BJ’s last night (Wed.). They play a continuous string of hits that spans the decades and they do it with unerring precision. Drummer Jill impressed us with her drum solo on a Santana number; the applause was deafening. Kim is a master on guitar and sings every rock tune with power and panache. Robin who never stops moving while playing bass, also sings, primarily on the songs in the lower register. Audiences have been so receptive to this female trio that BJ’s owner Billy Carder has booked them for a Saturday night, Oct. 7. This weeke...

Coco Nights     How ya doin’ out there? Are you being courteous and patient with our Biker friends? No one wants to be in or cause an accident, right?

These worshipers of the heavy metal gods present a musically perfect and visually stimulating performance each and every time they visit us.

Coco Nights     As I write this week, everyone’s minds are on Hurricane Irma. As if Harvey was not enough, now the devastating path of destruction in the wake of Hurricane Irma is threatening us again. We’re all praying that Florida and the Keys particularly will be spared the full wrath of what we’ve seen so far. Many of our friends are in Florida and have evacuated or had to hunker down for whatever reason.  We hear that gas is not readily available but gas trucks are being given police escorts. It seems that the Florida government is doing all in its power to aid its citizens. The latest reports project landfall in Miami on Sunday morning and maybe a decline in intensity as the storm travels northward. What that means to our area is still anybody’s guess. Then we have to watch out for Hurricane Jose. But let’s hope and pray for the best scenarios and in the meantime do all we can to aid others. It seems somehow frivolous to talk about partying w...
