Coco Nights
Written By: Brenda Golden
Coco Nights     Hi, all. It’s been two weeks since I said I’m all partied out (all those Halloween parties) and I’ve certainly had some rest but still I’ve been out to hear my favorite bands and that’s going to continue as we enter the holiday season. Let’s start with BJ’s on the Water that is staging a huge weekend of music and fun.     First I want to say a few words about Bird Dog & the Road Kings who appeared at BJ’s last Saturday. I’ve known and enjoyed the music of Byrd Dog Wheeler for more than 40 years and I can tell you he’s not slowing down any time soon. In fact, Byrd tells me that he and the Road Kings are working on their 8th album to follow last year’s Somerset County and before that, Bona-fide, Certified, Basic Eastern Shore Redneck USA. This CD title leads one to wonder what kind of music they play. To me it’s the epitome of Americana covering many genres but focusing on origi...

Coco Nights     I don’t know about you all, but I’m partied out. That’s right, you heard me. I’m actually staying in this Thursday night to talk to you a little and rest up a lot.

Coco Nights     Boo!! It’s the annual Halloween celebration in Ocean City and parties abound all over town. Of course the one at Seacrets is perhaps the most popular as the first-place prize for best costume is a trip to Jamaica; but there are many others around town offering cash prizes of as much as $500. I know some of you have been working hard on your costumes while others of us will just dust off our hats, as I will. I love my authentic Professor McGonagall (Hogwarts teacher of transfiguration) hat and that will do fine for me again this year. I still love all things Harry Potter. In fact, I own five of “Dumbledore’s Army” wands: Harry, Hermione, Ron, Neville and Luna; and I have Minerva McGonagall’s as well, but I’m afraid to bring it with me. Anyway, my how I digress, but I’ve been reading about McGonagall’s early life on the web in Pottermore. Pretty cool.     One of my favorite places to go for Halloween fun i...
