ROCKIN' WITH RICKY
Written By:
ROCKIN' WITH RICKY Hi, y’all. I’m baaaack! I said I would try to write more often so here I am. I had a great time listening to the music of “The Almost Famous Ricky La Ricci” show last night at Bourbon St. This was the first time in nearly 10 years that Rick played a show without his son Lennon on keyboards. Lennon was off enjoying the music at Firefly Festival, a present for his 18th birthday. So...Ricky was accompanied by Eddie Saah on bass and Phil ‘the Bucket’ on drums. They both did a great job, even adding backup vocals. I love Ricky’s song selection - a musical repertoire that he has compiled after many years playing for us. He can boast a very extensive list of Beatles tunes, including one of my favorites from John Lennon, “I Just Had To Let It Go,” that almost brings me to tears when I think about losing John Lennon when he was enjoying family life with his son and experiencing a new creative surge in his music. Such a profound loss to us al...

BACK IN THE GROOVE
Written By: Brenda Golden
BACK IN THE GROOVE Okay, I’m guilty! I wrote on June 4 that I would ‘talk’ to you more often and then I slacked again. I could cite a list of excuses but I’ve only myself to blame, of course. Many times I’ve composed a beginning only to get lost in answering emails and facebook until the motivation was swallowed up by distraction and the call to hurry out to hear great music. That, of course, is my motivation for this whole thing called coconuttimes.com. Granted, in my first days working for the paper, the impetus was more on leisure reading with such articles as Delmarva Treasures, Murder Mystery, Best Bites, Barhopping and Remembering World War II. Remember those? I enjoyed all that myself; but after becoming publisher/owner I began veering towards the musical lane where I created Sonic Notes (a column about music first penned by Marco Hiemenz), Coco Nights, my own column, and Meet The Band. I’m happy to say that Meet The Band has been resurrected by my friend and fe...

SPRINGFEST WEEKEND
Written By: Brenda Golden
SPRINGFEST WEEKEND Springfest 2019 is happening at the Inlet as I write this. What a gorgeous day it is, too. I’m even more happy that my favorite Coconuts Beach Bar & Grill opened Thursday with music by the Taylor Knox Band. Most of us know Taylor from his amazing guitar work with Old School and also Human Connection. For this outing he featured Rick Webster on drums and Steve Guth on bass for an afternoon of hot music. As hot as the temperature was on Thursday, the cool ocean breeze made it very comfortable on the picturesque patio at Coconuts. All new umbrellas, beautiful flowers and shiny green palm trees at the foot of the dunes add to the ambience of this shore-side venue. And beautiful young people hit the sand at the volleyball net. I began my visit as I probably ended the last one in the Fall, with a Pepper Jack Grilled Chicken wrap - delicious! Yes, Coconuts serves up tasty treats from the grill, so come on out and enjoy. Today’s band is Lime Green Band, Saturday will be Monkee ...
