Our new feature is a weekly editorial by one of our BeachFront Radio Ambassadors.

This week we are featuring Craig Guest talking about a couple of Trop Rock shows that he and his wife Diane recently attended. First was a trip to Heritage Hills Resorts to hear Dennis McCaughey performing at Knickers Pub.

 

Craig Guest - BeachFrontRadio Ambassador

It was a beautiful night (July 19 ) . We really enjoyed listening to Dennis sing. Hw sang some Of Jimmy Buffett’s most popular, Come Monday, Changes in Latitude.My wife enjoyed Dennis very much. She said she enjoyed his voice more then Buffett’s. Dennis also sang Tom Petty and Garth Brooks (e.g.Friends in Low Places).During the break, Dennis came to our table.We enjoyed listening to him tell us about how they tried to record alive a live CD at Heritage Hills, but could not finish due to terrible storms.They had to wait until the next day to finish it inside. By then “the live crowd shrunk from 250 to 14. Also, while talking to Dennis, I learned that both of us were both were Disney Castmembers years ago. Also learned that Stephen Bishop’s song Dennis played On and On was recorded live at this venue (Heritage Hills )

It was a great night of music by a very good singer (Dennis).

Then they attended a house concert at Conchy Joe's - - -  he had this to report - - -

A Beautiful summer Day with “Tropicool” at Conchy Joe’s in Lansdale, Pa.

Our three musicians: “Sunny Jim”, John Patti, and Jimi Pappas.

 

Sunny Jim shared with the audience that he spent more than a decade in the Cayman Islands and now lives in Southwest florida.

John Patti shared that he comes from Baltimore, Md. and that the first time he played the steel drums was at Sesame Place in Pa. at age 8.  John also mentioned that he had just played the National Anthem on the steel pans at Camden Yards in Baltimore.  John was first invited to do this in 2002 and has been invited back every year since then.

Jimi Pappas told the audience that he grew up in N.J.  He now lives in Orlando, Fl.  He shared that he played as a drummer for 10 years at Walt Disney World’s Epcot Center.
He also played with Chubby Checker, the Coral Reefers, and John Frinzi.  Jimi also toured with the late Jim Morris and the Big Bamboo Band for many years.  Sail on, Jim!

The Concert:

Tropicool started with a favorite from Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Soon, John Patti began to play  the National Anthem on two steel drums.  The entire audience immediately stood up in response to the music & in reverence to the flag.  It was truly a patriotic moment!  The unity and pride were unbelievable!  Then, John played Bob Marley’s “Waiting in Vain” and “Sandbar”.

Sunny Jim then played “Sandbar Serenade” and mentioned that his 2016 CD was “CD of the. Year”.

Next, the trio played a Scott Kirby song and several Jim Morris songs.  It was immediately evident that this audience loved Jim Morris!  It was abundantly clear that no one (in the audience (or performing) will ever forget Jim!

A great day was had by all!

Your Ambassador,

Craig Guest

Remembering Jim Morris

Jim Morris "The Godfather of Trop Rock" will live forever in his music that is played on all the Trop Rock Radio Stations around the country. And all the musicians that will be playing his songs. And all his fans, "Fish Heads", that will remember what he did to bring so much joy to so many people for nearly 20 years.



A youtube tribute slideshow video has been put together in honor of Jim Morris and was submitted to BeachFront Radio by the Parrot Heads of Central Florida.  Watch the video by clicking HERE.

"This video is a tribute to the life and music of Jim Morris, who left this world much too soon. Jim will be greatly missed by his wife Sharon, his family, his friends, and fellow musicians from around the globe. His music and memories will continue to last for all of us.   Sail on Jim!"
