Sometimes you just need to keep an open mind.
My folks invited me to see a Frankie Valli tribute band called “Let’s Hang On” playing at the OOB Seaside Pavillion. I said yes, because I’m saying yes to more things lately and I thought it sounded fun.
And what the hell, why not?
Though originally, I thought they said it was a Four Tops tribute band. But it was really a tribute to the Four Seasons and other assorted nostalgic hits.
Four guys. Two girls. Lots of sentimentality and knee-slapping jokes. Plus sequins and doo wop.
The music was catchy and I was singing along to practically every song which I think flabbergasted my folks. I was smiling because the whole thing was so corny and PG that I couldn’t help myself.
It felt good.
Plus it’s always nice to see old folks out and about enjoying themselves.
I was entertained and I give kudos to the performers who are well known in retirement communities, especially in Florida (where the 10-piece band is based). They really know how to work a crowd.
This is my life!
