If you haven’t been to the annual Gator by the Bay, add it to your list next year. It is a 3-day festival at Spanish Landing Park (across from the airport) with 5 stages of non-stop bands, mostly zydeco but also blues, boogie and some jazz.
This was my first year, and I was impressed by how well the event is organized, the good selection of booth fair, the bands and all the shade options!! I’m always hoping for enough shade at these outdoor events!
Here’s a good video of Annette DaBomb with the Lance Dieckmann Band (Lance on harmonica, Phil Diiorio on guitar, Bob Prater on bass and Becky Russell on drums) performing the Ray Charles cover song, Night Time is the Right Time. Sadly the video got cut off before they finished the song, but Enjoy the 3 1/2 minutes we did get. They sounded great on this stage.
