Lil' Pearl and the Big Boys

It was very fitting that Lil' Pearl and the Big Boys opened with Peggy Lee's hit "Fever" since we had a beautiful bonfire on the beach to celebrate the end of the 2008 concert series. The lyrics said it best: "what a lovely way to burn!" Stephanie Anderson and her band are a crowd favorite for Music on the Beach, and as always, they kept the large crowd rocking for the whole night. They played an abundance of classic R&B and rock hits (Janis Joplin, Johnny Cash, Jefferson Airplane) plus a few fun, original songs from their upcoming CD. Based on how many people were up dancing and singing along, I think it's safe to say that this concert was a great end to an amazing 2008 season!
Be sure to mark your calendars for the first concert of the 2009 series --
