OC'S FAB LIVE MUSIC
Written By: Brenda Golden
OC'S FAB LIVE MUSIC Rain, rain, go away! Hi out there my little ducklings. Oh, you say you’re not really liking this weather? Me either. But I did get out last night to hear the Jimmy Charles Band at Bourbon Street and it was a blast. I love this guy. His choice of covers always gets the audience up on their feet dancing and his originals are so likable too. His latest, which is scheduled to drop on May 20th, is titled “It’s a Maryland Thing You Wouldn’t Understand.” With catchy lyrics referencing many iconic Ocean City businesses such as Thrasher’s French Fries, this song is slated to become a state treasure. Already it is being played each sunset at Fager’s Island following the “1812 Overture.” “Never Had a Bad Day” is so upbeat and infectious and “Grow Up Too Fast” will bring a tear to your eye. There are so many more great songs in his catalog of music. It’s so cool that he comes back to home base when he can; yep, he’s a Stephen Decatur H.S. graduate. When he does, he plays for us as much as he can: ...

PARTY TIME
Written By: Brenda Golden
PARTY TIME It’s Springfest weekend which also heralds the opening of our outdoor venues such as Coconuts Beach Bar & Grill. I was there yesterday (Thursday) for opening day and had such a good time meeting some new friends, seeing old friends and Coconuts crew, and hearing the music of Lime Green. And if any of you are wondering if because of the similarity of names, are Coconut Times and Coconuts connected,  the answer is no. I’m very happy to represent them in promoting their awesome venue and events but we are separate entities. That said, it has always been and remains one of my favorite places to be. Angeline, Terry, John & Billy of Lime Green Band always deliver a show filled with a variety of rock, pop and R&B tunes that is guaranteed to please audiences of all ages. And I must add that Angeline has a most fabulous voice with an octave range that can handle songs from such wide ranging artists as Pat Benatar to Amy Winehouse. Power, range, tone: she has it all. Be sure to catch...

SPRING INTO OUTDOOR MUSIC
Written By: Brenda Golden
SPRING INTO OUTDOOR MUSIC Hi, Coconut Times readers. The highlights of my past week were birthday parties for two very dear friends and popular musicians in Ocean City. First up was for Randy Lee Ashcraft whose 60th birthday celebration was held at Bourbon Street on the Beach where he plays every Thursday at 4 pm. I’ve been listening to and appreciating the music of Randy for more than 25 years since first hearing him at M.R. Ducks after his return from Nashville. Yes, he made the trek to music city in pursuit of his dream and while he may not have made the so-called ‘big time’, he was busy honing his skills as a songwriter. Randy Lee’s catalogue of music, recorded on at least six albums, are all lyrical and musical gems. Be sure to request originals when you go out to hear him. Anyway, the dining room was full to overflowing with Randy’s many friends and family; and the dinner served by Barry and his staff, complete with early appetizers, was absolutely delicious. It was such a special occasion seeing so many ...
