Everybody Dances When Eight to the Bar Plays





I would call Eight to the Bar a Connecticut institution, but an "institution" seems like
something you call your high school's longtime basketball coach.

Eight to the Bar has been performing blues, swing, Motown, boogie-woogie and classic rock for the last forty years.  I tapped my toes, but others flung their bodies around.
Last night at -- where else?  -- Elizabeth Park.   


The sax player has been with the band from the start.



(The singer might have been added long after the band started . . .  )

Looks like the perfect evening for an outdoor concert.

Everyone's having a ball Jack and I love the little huddle of kids in your top capture
that's what I call - "having fun"

VP said...

I am sure you are right about the singer..

EG CameraGirl said...

What was the clue that made you think the singer wasn't a part of the band in the beginning?

Kate said...

Good music and happy people, while sitting among beautiful flowers. . .what could be better!

Do you get a cut with all the advertising of Elizabeth Park? You're sort of in the band '9 to the bar'. By the way, is there a bar at EP? hahahaha

Now that looks like a lot of toe-tapping fun!

RedPat said...

Good times at the park, Jack!

Mo said...

You've certainly captured the mood of the day.

Fantastic! The first shot is an O.D. of cuteness!

Looks such fun. There is music in our park too but people don't seem to dance much. Maybe you need a little sunshine to provide the mojo.

Wow! Great shots! That first kiddie shot is a real winner. I regain some hope for the world when I see children playing (and dancing) together like this.
