Music and Memory
"They say there was a secret chord that David loved and it pleased the Lord..."
I always knew when the baby boomers got older we would get the same special treatment we have gotten all our lives. The latest thing I have recently enjoyed is the nationwide phenomenon of "Tribute Bands". These are groups of talented younger people who preserve and play the greatest hits of aging rock legends.
Last weekend it was The Eagles heavy and loud rock sound from the 70s and 80s, and last night we enjoyed a band from LA that did the Beach Boys in the 60s and 70s. Very authentic sound and very entertaining.
Seeing how that room full of seniors were transported to their dating and young love period was quite enchanting. These guys dressed, and acted and danced there way through the Beach Boys unique sounds and their innocent fascination with the cars, the girls and the beaches of California. It was fun.
