True Rumours : The Definitive Fleetwood Mac Show (Galuppi’s- Pompano Beach)

* True Rumours: The Definitive Fleetwood Mac Show.

For you guys who like to follow every move that Jeff Eats makes😜- this coming Friday, May 25, 2018 (8pm-11pm) Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and two other couples got a table booked at Galuppi’s, 1103 North Federal Highway, Pompano Beach, Florida 33060, (954) 785-0226, to see-
True Rumours: The Definitive Fleetwood Mac Show.

Jeff Eats has been hearing some tremendous things about True Rumours- so I’m expecting a real cool-evening of good music, good food, good drink and good company- not to mention the “show” part of the equation is a complimentary deal!

galuppis.com- describes True Rumours: The Definitive Fleetwood Mac Tribute Show as “one that fans will look forward to seeing with a cast of well known local artists including Melinda Elena as Stevie Nicks, Eddie Jelley as Lindsey Buckingham, Larry Quadagno at Mick Fleetwood, Howie Hughes as John McVie and Eldad Kira as The Keys of Christine McVie. This tribute has been called- one of the most authentic Fleetwood Mac experiences-in South Florida!”

***** Galuppi’s, 1103 N. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach, Florida 33062 (954) 785-0226.

Last night, I had an absolutely terrific time at a joint named Galuppi’s in Pompano Beach. Just so you know, Galuppi’s which calls itself “Galuppi’s Restaurant, Patio Bar & Banquets” is actually located on the public Pompano Beach Golf Course… the view from its out-door patio of the course is absolutely amazing.

Galuppi’s is basically a restaurant/catering facility. There is a small indoor restaurant that has a large sit-at-bar, 4 booths and maybe a half-dozen hi-tops…outside, there is another sit-at-bar and loads of tables…there is also a banquet room attached to the restaurant that can be used for private parties or for restaurant customers. Now, to put this whole layout in perspective…go to Galuppi’s website at www.galuppis.com where you will find actual pictures of what I have been blabbing about, along with menu/prices/and other details.

Last night, Galuppi’s which does lunch and dinner 7 days a week and brunch on Sunday had The Beatles’ tribute band “Anthology” performing from 8pm-midnight. Suffice it to say, this joint was absolutely packed… the restaurant-the banquet room-the outside bar/patio…the band was on a small stage on the patio and I’ll bet you that from 8:30pm-10:30 pm (time I was there) there were at least 500-600 people maybe even more, eating…drinking…dancing. I am telling you, it was an absolutely great “party.” By the way, there was no cover charge or minimum…so for the price of a meal or a drink…or for that matter, just walking in…got you into this “concert.”

Just a quick note, “Anthology” was terrific. They were dressed in replicas of The Beatle’s Shea Stadium army-uniforms and had the requisite Beatle haircuts…they did some great covers of The Beatles’ hits. The group is extremely personable and their interaction with the crowd had the joint really jumping. Their faux British accents which came and went all evening long, added to the fun…and yes, they even have a left-handed bass player. You can check “Anthology” out at www.myspace.com/fab4anthology. I guarantee that based on last night’s action, Galuppi’s owners will have “Anthology” back for another gig in the very near future.

I already gave you this joint’s website…take a look at its menu. There are plenty of appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, entrees and desserts to keep everyone busy…By the way, the prices are very reasonable and last night our waitress Bobbi-Lynn was absolutely terrific despite the fact that the joint was absolutely packed (and I do mean packed). Last night I had babyback ribs, I also sampled the crab-cakes, snapper francaise and steak kabobs. The food is real-decent. Personally I would put it about “1-notch” above the stuff you get in your typical neighborhood sports bar. Just so you know, Galuppi’s also has tons of flat screen tv sets inside and outside…Last night every set was tuned to the Olympic Games, so if “The Beatles” weren’t your game, you could scream for the American swimmers.

One thing that I found interesting…the banquet room has sound-proof glass. Amazingly, while eating in the room, you couldn’t hear the out-door crowd or the band at all.

Galuppi’s is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week and for brunch on Sunday. According to its website, the joint has all kinds of entertainment and “specials”…so If you want to try Galuppi’s, I would suggest that you ”call ahead” to find out “what’s on tap” (pun intended).

Gotta a real good show for you Doo Wop fans…

The Five Boroughs

Thursday, July 12, 2018 (8pm)

Boca Black Box
8221 Glades Road Suite #10,
Boca Raton, Florida 33434
Box Office: 483.9036
Tickets: bocablackbox.com check goldstar.com for discount tickets

from bocablackbox.com

Formed in 1986 in South Florida by singer Frank Iovino to carry on the tradition of the harmony vocal groups of the 1950s and 1960s, the Five Boroughs consisted of several transplanted New Yorkers, many of whom were longtime veterans of the doo wop circuit. The first official group lineup included Iovino, Charlie Notabartolo (formerly of the Casual-Aires), Bruce Goldie (the Dreamers), Dave Strum (the Excellents), and Geno Radicello (the Bowery Boys). This unit recorded an EP for Telemedia Records in 1986, notable for bringing synthesizers and drum machines into the doo wop equation, then followed up with two a cappella tracks, “Sunday Kind of Love” and “For Your Precious Love/For Your Love,” for Avenue D Records in 1987, and a third, a cover of the Cleftones’ “See You Next Year,” in 1988.

The group was signed to Classic Artists Records in 1990, and quickly issued two singles, “Apart” and a version of the Flamingos’ “A Kiss from Your Lips,” before releasing a full-length album on the label, Count Every Star, in 1991. The Five Boroughs’ second album, Heart’s Desire, was issued by Starlight Records in 2000. The group’s most recent lineup has grown to seven members, with Steve Ward, Johnny Sorrentino, and Jimmy DellaRosa joining original members Iovino, Strum, Goldie, and Notabartolo. A popular live act, the group performs with its own band, the Five Boroughs Band, with Vic Giardino on guitar, Tim Myer on bass, Joe Costadura on drums, Earl Catron on sax, and Wayne Muscarella on keyboards. A brief overview of their recorded work, Doo Wop Under the Palms, was released by Collectables in 2005.

* The Royal Wedding- 2018!

Didn’t we kick ass-in 1776 so we wouldn’t have to deal with nonsense like Kings & Queens, Princes & Princesses, Dukes & Duchesses, Lords, Ladies, Sirs and Dames? Personally, I like “our” nonsense better- The Kennedys, The Clintons, The Trumps- but then again, that’s just me!

By the way- if I offended any of you Brits out there- just remember the words Lend Lease…

Anyway…

This tale- gets filed in the “Better Late Than Never” category…

For years- Jeff Eats has been hearing about Tasty Home Cookin a Sarasota “mom & pop” breakfast/lunch/dinner diner that supposedly makes absolutely amazing delicious hamburger sliders- long story short, yesterday Jeff Eats finally “got” to Tasty Home Cookin and yes!-the joint makes absolutely amazing delicious hamburger sliders!

Can’t leave Mrs. Jeff Eats out of this tale- while I was devouring 3- sliders ($5.50 with french fries and a fountain drink), Mrs. Jeff Eats gave Tasty Home Cookin’s meatloaf dinner ($9.95 entree & 3 sides) a shot- and I gotta tell you, like the sliders and fries, absolutely delicious!
