The “Sweet Caroline Tour” with Jay White (Boca Black Box- Boca Raton)

* The “Sweet Caroline Tour” with Jay White.

Just announced…

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, this guy is one of the best Neil Diamond tribute artists in the world.

The “Sweet Caroline Tour” with Jay White

Sunday, January, 19th, 2020- (2pm) & (7pm)

Boca Black Box
8221 Glades Road #10
Boca Raton,FL 33434
Box Office: 561.483.9036
Tickets Online: bocablackbox.com also check goldstar.com (discount tickets)

The “Sweet Caroline Tour” is a Neil Diamond Concert Celebration starring the #1 Diamond performer in the world – Jay White.

It is without question the most authentic Neil Diamond Concert Experience on the planet as it features Jay backed by a 10-piece musical ensemble that includes key members of Neil Diamond”s Tour Band. Conceived in response to Mr. Diamond’s retirement from the concert stage due to his Parkinson’s diagnosis and the huge demand from audiences worldwide to enjoy the music of the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame icon in a live music setting, Jay’s Mission is to pick up the torch, pay homage to his music idol and entertain Diamondheads of all ages while generating financial support and awareness for Parkinson organizations worldwide. As such, proceeds from each Sweet Caroline Concert event will benefit Parkinson patients and caregivers in every city the Sweet Caroline Tour plays.

Over the last three decades, Jay White has performed over 8,000 concerts around the world reflecting the stage persona of an American Music Legend. Each expression of every Neil Diamond song performed by Jay evokes the power and the passion of a live Diamond performance. Jay first starred as Diamond in the critically acclaimed Las Vegas-based “Legends In Concert” for several years, then moved on to headline his own Neil Diamond show at the Riviera Hotel Showroom for a decade. Jay then sparked international interest in 2008 when he was cast by Director Ron Howard to play Neil Diamond in the Academy Award Nominated film “Frost/Nixon”, which was followed up in 2012 by his being cast as the lead in a musical/drama entitled “Beautiful Noise”.

Jay met Neil Diamond on two separate occasions at the MGM in Las Vegas and appeared in Neil’s Box Set CD/DVD “Stages” where Neil encouraged him to “Keep up the good work”. On a signed photo of the two, Neil wrote: “Jay, keep singing, so I can stay home and relax. Your friend in music – Neil”. Needless to say, Jay is not only grateful that his years of dedicated hard work have convinced tens of thousands of Diamond fans that he is the closest thing to the Real Deal…but also that he’s been acknowledged and embraced by Neil, Neil’s family and Band for keeping the Brooklynborn singer/songwriter’s music alive in the most respectful, convincing way possible.

Jay recently commented about Neil and his family: “Their kindness and acceptance have always been greatly appreciated and I’m honored to have appeared with Neil on his DVD. Now, more than ever, I will continue to pay homage, through each and every performance, to the man who has meant so much, to so many, for so long.” Whether recreating the magic and mystique of the Neil Diamond sound and stagecraft in concert venues of all sizes, with symphony orchestras or for private corporate gatherings; Jay White has no equal when it comes to bringing the true “Feel of Neil” to adoring audiences on stages the world over.

Got a terrific “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joint for you guys…Grandma’s Brooklyn Pizza in Royal Palm Beach. Real tiny joint, with just a handful of tables-so don’t be planning no big high school graduation parties or nothing!

You can check menu/prices at grandmasbrooklynpizza.com.

Just so you know, the joint has the full boat of expected appetizers, salads, pizzas, pastas, subs, meat/chicken/seafood entrees, desserts. For those of you who might be wondering, yes- entrees come with soup or salad, garlic rolls and a pasta side.

The other night Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple gave Grandma’s a shot…large cheese pizza (16″-$12.99), chicken parmigiana sub ($8.59), eggplant parmigiana sub ($8.59), shrimp scampi over pasta ($19.19), meat lasagna ($13.09)- and I gotta tell you everything and I do mean everything was delicious. You guys know that Jeff Eats isn’t a big proponent of pecking-order lists-but I must tell you that the pizza (thin, crisp, sweet sauce) was terrific and the eggplant parmigiana sub alone- was worth the drive-up-to Royal Palm Beach.

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, this hole in the wall is a dynamite joint.

***** Sweet Treats Bakery, 2900 West Sample Road, Pompano Beach, Florida 33073, (954) 984-4785.

Got something really terrific for you guys…Sweet Treats Bakery a brand new bakery-concession stand which opened about a-month ago in The Festival Flea Market Mall in Pompano Beach.

Long story short,

Yesterday afternoon- Mrs. Jeff Eats “needed” some baked goods for a bunch of “her” relatives visiting from New York…based on her friend Audrey’s recommendation, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats picked-up 2-Russian coffee cakes, 2-chocolate babkas, 2 1/2 lbs.of assorted rugelach, 6 almond horns, 1 dozen chocolate chip cookies- for some unknown reason, Mrs. Jeff Eats chose not to run-the-table- by not picking-up some- of the danish, muffins, breads, Chinese cookies, chocolate meltaways, linzer tarts and hamantaschen that Sweet Treats also- features in its display cases.

Sweet Treats is owned/operated by Joanne and Mary- who combined, have 53 years in the retail bakery business…Sweet Treats’ stuff is “baked” off premises and delivered fresh every morning to The Festival Flea Market Mall-joint. From what I understand, when an item is sold out, it’s sold out- until the next day! In addition to the “items” above, Sweet Treats has a number of “no sugar added” products- and has a rotating list of cookies/cakes -that are “daily specials.”

Now, you know and Jeff Eats knows that the proof is in the pudding…and I gotta tell you, that everything we picked-up was right on the money! If I had to, but I don’t, but I will- tell you that the Russian coffee cake and the chocolate babka absolutely killed! These two “cakes” alone- made the use of my SunPass worthwhile. Now don’t get me wrong, everything that Mrs. Jeff Eats’ relatives devoured were hits- but that babka and that coffee cake were game changers.

On the price-front, Joanne and Mary are banging “things”-out at Publix type prices…for example- the babka and coffee cake fetch $7.95 a piece!

Just a word to the wise, based on what Jeff Eats saw…if you “want something in particular” call ahead- and have Joanne or Mary put it away for you…yesterday at 3:30pm, Sweet Treats’ stand was jammed with people literally buying everything in sight!- and like I said 3.2 seconds ago, when an item is sold out, it’s sold out!

Sweet Treats Bakery is open Monday-Friday 9:30am-5pm, Saturday-Sunday 9:30am-6pm.
