The Gin Blossoms on statge at Roanoke Island Festival Park.
It would be tough to picture a better setting for a rock concert than Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo, especially on Thursday evening when the Gin Blossoms, Spin Doctors and Scars on 45 came to town.
This was the last Brew Thru Summer Series Concert of the year and and there’s nothing like going out on a high note.
Great music, perfect weather, beautiful setting-that’s about as good as it gets.
With Scars on 45 leading off the show you knew it was going to be a great day. A British band, they’re just getting their name out in the U.S. but they were very good.
But the crowd was there to see the Spin Doctors and Gin Blossoms and both bands showed why they have been at the top for so long. Great music, fantastic stage presence and some showmanship.
They also made sure to include some of their hits-Jimmy Olsen’s Blues, Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong and Two Princes for the Spin Doctors. Hey Jealousy, Allison Road, and Found Out About You for the Gin Blossoms. A couple of other familiar tunes were on the playlist as well.
One of the nicest aspects of the Brew Thru Concert Series is how family friendly they are. A lot of families with all the kids in tow, and a few parents mentioned this was their kids first concert. A great first one to take them to.
