It was hot, it has humid and, yes, maybe there was a bit of a melt down but the Mid Summer Meltdown in Corolla was one heck of a show.

The headliner was the People’s Blues of Richmond. This is probably the third time we’ve seen them thanks to Bearded Face Productions who keep bringing them back to the Outer Banks.

The important thing to know about PBR, though, is they seem to just keep getting better and better. The group is a trio with Tim Beavers on guitar, Matthew Volkes on bass and Nekoro Williams, drums. But their music is so full, so complex that it’s sometimes  where it’s hard to imagine there’s only three of them.

They played some of their newest material, and it’s really interesting stuff. Still based on the blues, but they’re clearly seeing how far they can take their sound. This is really a group worth checking out if the opportunity comes up.

C2 & the Brothers Reed opened for the Meltdown. Evidently they lost their lead singer a little before the Midsummer Show date. What they decided to do, since they didn’t have someone for vocals was put together some jams. Wow! There is no other word to describe how tight and how musically interesting what they were doing sounded.

Hopefully they’ll be back and maybe even with a lead singer in the future.

The summer and the fall a filled with events for the whole family. Be sure to check out Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates for the best homes in the best locations.
