Calling all Parrot Heads

The City of Boca Raton continues its Friday Night Summer Tribute Series with a tribute to Jimmy Buffett featuring  Jimmy Stowe and the Stowaways.  The music starts at 7:30 p.m.

 Come Downtown and join friends, neighbors,  barefoot children, brown-eyed girls (that’s Van Morrison) and plenty of Parrot Heads for a great night of live music under the stars. This is a free community event and blankets and chairs are welcome. Food and beverages will be available for purchase on site. No coolers, outside food and beverages or pets allowed. We will also have chairs available to rent for $5.00. There is free parking at City Hall and the libraries.

Dave’s favorite Buffett song is “Come Monday” because he loves his job.

Jazz in the Park

The City of Delray Beach Parks and Recreation Department is launching a new  “Jazz Along The Intracoastal” series Sunday, Aug. 3.

A schedule of performing artists at “Jazz Along The Intracoastal” will be available at a later date. For more information, contact Parks and Recreation at (561) 243-7252.

James Brown Biopic opens

Way back when I was cub reporter, I was assigned to attend a press conference before a James Brown concert at the Delray Beach Tennis Stadium.

The Hardest Working Man in Show Biz was scheduled to land at Boca Airport where he would greet the local press corps.

I got there early and was walking around when there he was, Mr. Brown with some interesting looking ladies, coming my way.

Next thing I knew I was whisked into a room for an exclusive with the Godfather of Soul.

The interview was a blur, to say I was nervous would be an understatement of massive proportions.

Anyway, that’s a long winded way of saying that we recommend you hit the theaters this weekend to catch “Get On Up”, the long awaited James Brown movie featuring the terrific Chadwick Boseman, who did a great job playing Jackie Robinson in “42” a few years back.

Early reviews are strong and the music..well…it’s timeless like Dave’s fashion sense.
