ABOUT LAST NIGHT. . .

It was a beautiful even in Egg Harbor last night, especially at Burton’s on the Bay.  Under their big white tent, Modern Day Drifters performed from 6-9pm.  I had never heard the band before.  They are a very good Country band.  The setting was perfect surrounded by the bay of Green Bay.  There is a wonderful wood floor which was great for line dancing.  It was fun to watch, and dance to a few of their other songs.  At sunset, there were people dining and listening, others dancing, with boats surrounding the area.  

You should take in one of the next concerts.  If you haven’t been to one of these events, it’s well worth it.  I had a great evening!

Wednesday, August 17                 Big Mouth Trio (6-9pm)
