Back in Eastpointe for another summer show. Always a good time, always fun, always entertaining. Sometimes its quite hot, playing on the cement slab by the Eastpointe offices, but always a reason to smile.
We arrived early, and this time, needed to avoid the street sweeper guy who had it out for us. Dodging that bullet, it was a pretty easy experience setting up our gear.
Playing in Eastpointe always gives us lots of musical options when it comes to what we can play. They like all types and genres of music, and even an Irish tune or two.
Since the summer was truly upon us, there was no doubt that we would begin with our trademark, Jimmy Buffett song or two, to get us started on the right musical foot.
The good folks who arrived for the concert were all very welcoming, right from the onset, as we took several requests in the first few moments.
There were Van Morrison, Jimmy Buffett and even some Neil Diamond songs that were asked about. All of them sounded just perfect on this wonderful summer night. People were happy and very cordial. Who could ask for anything more?
Eastpointe has become almost timeless to Carl and I, since we have been playing in this community for more than forty years now. The only thing that differs over the years has been the location of the concert venue.
We both hope to come back next year, as we have many, many more songs that need to be heard.
Well, we’ve earned it!
