Still Looking For Love, Fifty Summers Later, at the Shore

first_imgBy Matt KoellingThe fiftieth anniversary of the Summer of Love has been a recurring theme in 2017. Particularly in San Francisco, but also in celebrations, festivals, print publications, and online think-pieces, from across the country, all over the world. The original “Summer of Love” was predated by the Human Be-In at Golden Gate Park, in January 1967. It began in earnest in June, near the weekend of the Monterrey Pop Festival, and release of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts’ Club Band.The original Summer of Love was seen as a counterculture’s rejection of consumerism, distrust of government and opposition to war. In the Summer of 2017? Well, as Meat Loaf sang on a 1977 hit, “two out of three ain’t bad”. Without having experienced this particular time and place myself, it’s hard to imagine that mythology hasn’t usurped truth to some degree. But that’s neither here, nor back there.Monday night’s festivities at the Ocean City Music Pier, wasn’t attempting to examine things that deeply. Glen Burtnik’s Summer of Love 50th Anniversary Concert, aimed to “relive the memories, share the spirit & celebrate the songs of the Woodstock generation”. There was no time to parse the politics of the era, nor revisit its complex history. This was a campy, skillfully replicated, costume-laden, love letter, to an era most of the crowd and performers, didn’t experience in real time. For the consumers, now plunking down $67 for good seats, that seemed to be exactly what they paid to see.Glen Burtnik is a New Jersey-bred musician who, by his own admission, was a bit too young to fully experience “The Summer of Love”. But as a child of the era, with a pair of older brothers, he developed a fascination with it. When his big break came playing Paul McCartney, in the Broadway musical Beatlemania, his sixties-revivalist stars truly aligned. He’d also go on to be a bassist/vocalist of later incarnations of Styx and ELO. Burtnik, looking like ESPN anchor Trey Wingo’s cool uncle, is an amiable leader of Summer of Love’s Broadway-style revue.No stone was left unturned, while mining for late-Sixties kitsch. The outfits could’ve come from Forrest Gump’s Lincoln Memorial scene. Brielle Von Hugel, resembled Kevin Arnold’s flower-child older sister Karen from The Wonder Years. David Biglin hit Ray Manzarek’s “Light My Fire” organ solo note for note. Joe LaFragola mimicked everyone from Carlos Santana to Jimi Hendrix on guitar. Joe Bellia got an extended drum workout during “Soul Sacrifice”. Remember Jones seemingly studied Joe Cocker’s facial tics and gesticulations, but added Vegas Elvis choreography, to “Delta Lady” and “Help From My Friends”.The stage backdrop featured Marc Rubenstein’s famed 60’s-70’s Pig Light Show. Though its liquid-light effects now call to mind a dorm-room lava lamp, or Windows Media screen-saver, more than an acid trip. “I like this place”, Burtnik said, “because you can see the ocean crash on the beach while we play. So, it’s like we’ve got our own light show, while you watch the one behind me”. OCNJ Daily pays me to write what’s in front of me at the Music Pier, rather than behind. However, with yesterday’s waves in O.C., plus the rainbows over the beach, I’d have been okay with swapping views for a bit. Either way you faced, the rain did stop as the band started, with the sunny L.A. pop-rock of “Happy Together”.The pacing of the show was non-stop. Two-and-a-half hours straight, filled with classic-rock staples, garage nuggets and jangly West Coast pop hits. There was no lag time, because after any singer did two songs in a row, new blood was coming. The best moments vocally, came from an influx of youth. The aforementioned Von Hugel, a former American Idol contestant, capably captured Joni Mitchell on “Woodstock”. Reagan Richards had Grace Slick’s banshee-belt down to eerie degrees on “Somebody to Love” and “White Rabbit”. JaQuita May, brought Tina Turner energy to “River Deep, Mountain High”, not missing a beat when a mic-stand broke mid-song. And Freedom Bremner’s “Try a Little Tenderness”, into “Stand”, was the first moment that had the crowd doing so.“Summer of Love”, as far as the show title goes, is a bit of a misnomer. About half of the songs in the set were released after the Summer of ’67, up through Woodstock, and into 1970. But no one coming out to see this show are going to quibble about those date details. Nor should channeling that era’s danger, along with the artists its excesses chewed up and spit out, be expected. This is a trip, taken professionally, through the past, brightly. For those looking to make it, Summer of Love does so quite effectively.Set List:Happy Together (The Turtles) Touch Me (The Doors) Woodstock (Joni Mitchell)/Woodstock (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young) Green Tambourine (The Lemon Peppers) Me and Bobbie McGee (Janis Joplin) California Dreamin’ (The Mamas & The Papas) Good Vibrations (The Beach Boys) White Rabbit/Somebody to Love (Jefferson Airplane) River Deep, Mountain High (Ike & Tina Turner) Sgt.

Bakers avoid the worst of Irish contamination

first_imgBritish bakers and manufactu-rers have largely been unaffected by the Irish pork contamination issue, but a number of pork products have been recalled as a precautionary measure.Frank Hayes, from Kerry Foods in Ireland said: “Our production in Ireland is very much centred around the Irish market, so by and large the UK market was unaffected.” Kerry’s Dennys brand sausage rolls were on the product recall list for Sainsbury’s, but a number of the products on the list are only available in stores in Ireland. Asda also issued a recall list, which included Mini Melton Mowbray pork pies, though a spokesperson for Walkers Charnwood (part of Samworth Brothers) which produce the pies confirmed that the pork used “is sourced from mainland UK, so we are unaffected”.A spokesperson for the National Association of Master Bakers told British Baker: “The situation is a concern in the run-up to Christmas. We advise any members who are worried to go back down the distribution chain and identify where they sourced their pork, in the hope that, when that source gets the all-clear from the Food Standards Agency (FSA), they can use the pork confidently in their production.”A spokesperson for Tesco said the supermarket had already removed a small number of lines from sale in its British stores and is continuing to review its full product range.A number of firms, including Pukka Pies, Dickinson & Morris, Ginsters and Pork Farms, have confirmed they have been unaffected. A spokesperson from Goodfellas said that its Goodfellas Friday Fever Meateor pizza had been “withdrawn from all major supermarkets in the UK and Ireland as a precaution”.The full list of meat processors in the Republic of Ireland and affected meat companies in England can be viewed on the FSA’s website [http://www.food.gov.uk].last_img read more

GREAT ESCAPE: Take a look inside this Bethania home.ELKE Nierschak knew it was time to leave her once peaceful home at Tamborine when the urban sprawl changed the once peaceful views.“Before it was all pine forest and it was beautiful,” Mrs Nierschak said.“Now all we could see was roofs, and we didn’t want to see all the roofs anymore.”To get away from the creeping urbanisation, they moved out to 18 Strafford Rd at Bethania. The four-bedroom home is on a spacious 720sq m block in a quiet street that is close to the Logan River. A very unique backyard.Among the things she liked about the home was the peaceful serenity from the location and the large block, as well as the pool area in the backyard.
