Cobb's Landing with Highway 1 Band


Cobb's Landing Ft.Pierce,FL.

     Highway 1 Band has a great location for their vacation style sounds right here on the Ft.Pierce Marina at Cobb's Landing. Palm trees and boats to be seen as you enjoy a specialty frozen drink to the trop rock sounds of Highway 1. The party is where they are playing under the palms and watching folks playing corn hole on the open grass area. Apple cider pints with a shot of fireball seem to really spark the band up as they put out good vibes and friendly sounds. I found it hard not to stay engaged in the band. The play on words and audience interaction set you off on a sail of laughter. The bass player Tea has the witty puns and comments to toss out with a huge grin on his face. Joel just sings right on key until you hear that uhh. Thats right he is soon trying so hard not to laugh at Tea cutting up. The drummer Scottie just sits back and grins as the laughter feels the air. The songs and puns keep you so involved as these guys feel your evening with entertainment. They do put out some serious music that they call seriously fun up good time sounds. They really do a great job putting out some great fun songs and Joel can even sing so great blues.

Brevard Live Music Awards is Brevard County Florida's little own way of keeping the music Live and Local. I am proud to say I will be attending this event to learn more of what keeps this County Live. Highway 1 band travel all over Florida and seem to be in big demand with normal folks and not just with the ones your parents warned you about. I enjoy any chance I get to hang out and listen to these guys take me away on a musical getaway. I hope to see them win some awards at the BMAs and if they don't win I am sure to enjoy the evening hangin with these awesome nominees.

     Ending my evening I ordered Cobb's Landing famous Bacon Brownie to go. I might have had to end my friendly evening with sounds of joy from Highway 1 band , But I had a nice bacon brownie to comfort me when I got home.
 Thanks and good luck Highway 1 band..... cheers xo

Greetings!

What a great week the band has had!  From a performance in New York City (on the Hudson River!) to a great concert in Bellevue State Park in Wilmington, DE, to a fun graduation party in PA (congratulations again, Dana!) to a over-the-top return to the Sand Bar in Ocean Beach, NY, to a rain-did-not-damper-spirits concert in Bernards Township, NJ...thank you ALL for taking time out of your busy summers to share some fun with us!  It's been great seeing so many of you as we hit the mid-point of the summer season.  There's lots more to come! 

This weekend once again kicks off early, on Thursday, with the band's return to Summerfest in Brick, NJ.  We'll follow that up with a trip out to Manheim, PA, on Friday, for Parrotfest (hosted by our friends at the Lancaster Liederkranz) and then on to Reading, PA, on Saturday, for the annual Summer Parrot Daze (hosted by our Berks County Parrot Head Club friends.)  On Sunday, the band will be back at the very cool Beverly Hills Tavern in Sinking Spring, PA (rain will move this event to the Railroad House, also in Sinking Spring, so watch our Facebook page, Twitter, and website for updates.)  Details for all these awesome events are below; come out and have some fun with us this weekend!
