The Royal Crowns - I'm Coming Home

The Royal Crowns - Pill Poppin' Poppa

For the second year running, The Garrison showed its community spirit, programming a day's worth of live music in the parking lot across the street from them. With a zero per cent chance of rain and the sun in that not-too-hot-not-too-cool zone, it was a pretty perfect day to stand in the street and take in some music. Top-notch sound kept heads turning throughout the day, and there was enough variety to appeal to various segments of the passers-by.

Local rockabilly kings The Royal Crowns might have gathered the day's biggest crowd of passers-by, with plenty stopping to boogie or jitterbug a spell. Presented with plenty of cornball jokes and wearing their loudest shirts, the trio couldn't distract from the savvy they've gathered in over two decades of performance. I don't cross paths with this stuff too often, so kudos to The Garrison for including them in the afternoon's entertainment.
