    Our 1st gig outside on a beautiful day. Riverview Beach Park is on the shores of the Delaware river. In the 50's, families would take the ferry (Wilson Line) from Philadelphia to Pennsville NJ and embark to an amusement park, pool and picnic area and lake. The last time I was there I was 5 years old and now 70 years later I'm back to Rock the Park. All that is left is the entrance gate and Gazebo. Everything else is gone. Once we started playing everyone within hearing distance gathered around the gazebo to listen to two hours of rock and roll.

    I have to apologize. I was so caught up in the rapture I forgot to take food shots, me of all people. We had hoagies, BBQ chicken on the grill, salads, desert in the picnic area.

  6. YES, you of all people who calls out every gig report that's missing food shots. :smug:

    Very cool gig, sunny day and playing music, nothing to be sad about there. And a little Blackberry Smoke, love that band, nice choice!

    Sounded good, neighbor! :bassist:

    I've never been down there but it looks like it would be a nice location to play an outdoor gig - and that gazebo looks like it has a lot more space for you to spread out than in the corner of a bar.
