• The Hottest Ticket in Pacific Grove

    by Dixie Layne

    No one but no one was disappointed when the Kingston Trio took the stage Thursday night – all a bit older but the harmonies, vocals, and banjo and guitar picking were all as the initiated who filled Pacific Grove’s Performing Arts Center remembered. The audience that filled the hall aged from 6 to 60 … make that 90, and not one of them could sit still or not sing along.

    As in traditional Kingston Trio fashion, these “California boys” told stories about the Trio and their songs … who knew Scotch and Soda put baseball great Tom Seaver and his sister through Stanford. And the Trio were not the only ones with stories; after the concert the Trio ventured out to the lobby to mingle with those who just couldn’t break the spell and go home … it was their turn to share their Trio stories with the Kingston Trio. What a night – here’s “mud in your eye, baby do I get high, oh me, oh my.”

    Mark your calendars now for the next concert at the Performing Arts Center – The Glenn Miller Orchestra is scheduled for Sunday, March 21, 2014 at 3pm – let’s swing, swing, swing.
