With only three more weeks 'til Labor Day and four more weeks to the famous Somers Point "Good Old Days" festival at Kennedy Park, we are racing through the dog days of August with three shows every week.
As expected, the concert on Kennedy Plaza in AC last night, Wednesday, August 10 was an incredible display of musical prowess and a charming evening with one of the most successful recording artists in Motown records history, Peter Rivera performing the music of Rare Earth with the Grammy award winner Paul Nelson who simply scorched and shredded his way through a blistering set of blues rock along with his great band that included Mike Demeo, keyboard player from Tommy James and the Shondells who will appear in Cape May later this month.  
Jimi Hendrix fans must see the incredible Stanley Jordan, one of the world's greatest guitarist, pay tribute to Hendrix on August 17 before the party becomes funky with the "Man who taught the blues to the Blues Brothers, Curtis Salgado and his multi award winning band. Curtis has been the Soul Blues Performer of the Year and has had the Best Soul Blues Album of the year many times at the Memphis Hall of Fame following his role as the consultant on the Blues Brothers original movie in 1980!
On the radio show this Saturday, August 13, we will interview the great Curtis Salgado and talk to him about his early days with Roomful of Blues and his tenure with the great Robert Cray before his fateful meeting with John Belushi that led him to become the consultant on the Blues Brothers movie and consequently "The man who taught the blues to the Blues Brothers".
Ironically, Roomful of Blues, probably the greatest big band in the last 50 years of New England's musical history, will be appearing on the Somers Point Beach this Friday, August 12, bringing the kind of jump, jive and swing that takes us from the Bourbon Street's days of Louis Prima to the greatest rockin' big band sounds of our times.  
We will also continue our segment on hot new items available at Circle Liquor Store including more than 120 Rose's from around the world, incredible, premium wine values, the latest seasonal microbrews and a huge selection of hard seltzers, tequilas, exotic vodkas and over 200 bourbons available at probably the best independent liquor store in the world! Definitely the best in New Jersey! With the hospitality, expertise and warmth of our friends at Circle Liquor, it is the place to have a good time when you are getting ready to Let the Good Times Roll!
