* Go Full Circle.

Must be pretty demoralizing to start with nothing, make it big and then have to close out your career sailing on a cruise ship being forced to eat breakfast and talk music with fat guys in red shirts!

Just an observation!

Posted on April 7th, 2017 · Fort Lauderdale Music/Events/Other · 5 Comments »

* Ringo Starr And His All Star Band.

Tickets at ParkerPlayhouse.com with all the “bs” fees run $177-$338!

Jeff Eats is a Ringo-fan, that said- I’m thinking that at $177-$338 a ticket- Jeff Eats and you guys are better served making a monthly car lease payment, or electric bill payment, or water bill payment, or cable bill payment, or buying every single Beatles/McCartney/Starr/Lennon/Harrison CD!

* Legendary Comedian Don Rickles Dead At 90!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats only met Don Rickles once- and that was in the lobby of the Casino Del Sol Resort in Tucson, Arizona on December, 7, 2012- maybe we chatted for 5 minutes! I will never forget how at the very end of the conversation he turned- and whispered (just loud enough for me to hear him) in Mrs. Jeff Eats’ ear- Where’d you find this loser.”

Back In The Dayz-Legends Of Rock & Roll (Boca Black Box- Boca Raton)

Posted on April 6th, 2017 · American Boca Raton Deals Music/Events/Other · 2 Comments »

* Back In The Dayz-Legends Of Rock & Roll.

If you want to see one of America’s premier 50s-60s-70s Rock & Roll cover bands in action- then plan on seeing The Shindigs’- Back In the Dayz- Legends Of Rock & Roll show on Sunday, April 9th (7pm) at the Boca Black Box, 8221 Glades Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33434, Box Office: (561) 483-9036, Tickets: bocablackbox.com, goldstar.com (discount tickets).

Jeff Eats has been following The Shindigs for years and I am telling you they are crazy good!

Here’s what Jeff Eats wrote about The Shindigs way-back on December 1, 2008…

Posted December 1, 2008
***** The Shindigs *****

This past Friday Night (November 28, 2008) I attended a private party at the Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton. The evening’s entertainment featured a 4-piece South Florida based 1950’s-60’s-70’s tribute band…The Shindigs.

I have to tell you, that The Shindigs had a crowd of 250 up and dancing all night. The band did absolutely amazing covers of the hits of such groups/acts as (now get ready for this partial list in no particular order)…The Beatles, The Dave Clark Five, The Zombies, The Monkees, The Grass Roots, The Bee Gees, K.C & The Sunshine Band, The Commodores, The Rascals, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, The Byrds, The Temptations, Barry White, Chubby Checker, James Brown, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Dion & The Belmonts, Roy Orbison, The Beach Boys, Chicago, Gerry & The Pacemakers and Bill Haley & His Comets.

Take a look at The Shindigs’ website www.theshindigs.us. If you check the members’ bios…you will find that these guys aren’t “kids” playing rock’n’ roll, but rather… are seasoned-professional musicians with extensive music industry backgrounds. If you check “Events” you will find that in the upcoming months, The Shindigs have South Florida “free” gigs scheduled at such venues as the Hollywood Band Stand (12/3/08) and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (12/26/08)…

I am telling you, that if you like great classic rock ‘n roll/disco music from the 50’s-60’s-70’s, you will absolutely love The Shindigs. By the way, The Shindigs also perform a Beatles’ tribute show–costumes and all…under the name The Beatles Remembered. If you check You Tube, you will find a number of videos starring The Beatles Remembered and the performances are amazingly accurate…

The Shindigs are a band/act that you should make it your business to see. By the way, unlike many bands…The Shindigs’ music is 100% live, no tracks or tapes are used to enhance the band’s performance.

Don’t miss these guys!!

This article first appeared on 2/22/17. Jeff Eats just checked the Boca Black Box- box office (bocablackbox.com) and it has a handful of tickets left tomorrow night’s 4/7/17- 6pm and 9pm shows. Gold Star (goldstar.com) also has a handful of “discount tickets” listed.

The DANCING DREAM tribute band, is one of the best ABBA Tributes since ABBA itself. Formerly known as the ABBA GIRLZ This New York City based ABBA Tribute Band features beautiful harmonies, elaborate costumes and exciting choreography guaranteed to captivate all audiences making every show a night to remember. Always very well organized from start to finish, they have been entertaining crowds all over North America since 2009. The secret to their success is great musicianship, energetic personalities and a genuine love for what they do. This shows with each performance. Their charisma electrifies audiences of all ages.

A very energetic and enthusiastic show brings back memories and smiles on everybody’s face. The girls interact with the crowd and have people singing along to those always popular ABBA songs. With great reviews and often mistaken as the real ABBA, this ABBA Tribute is a great choice of entertainment for big concert venues and themes parties (disco night, 70’s night). In 2012 the group was featured in a comedy central show called “Colbert Report”. They performed several concerts in New York and in many states across the country… now including the Boca Black Box in Florida! You have TWO chances to see this sensational national act!
