Saturday night was 60s night at McKechnie Field (here is their Facebook page with pictures). The Marauders lost, so the highlight of the evening was a post-game concert by my favorite local band, Yesterdayze. I’ve seen them at Lakewood Ranch’s Music on Main, and I’ve seen them at the monthly outdoor summertime concerts at the Van Wezel and they are always good. They play a wide variety of 60s music, from Dylan to the Beatles to the Monkees to Jimi Hendrix, and they do it all well.
One of the great things about 60s music is that everyone can enjoy it. 5-year-olds were dancing, and so were 75-year-olds. You don’t get that with hip-hop or heavy metal. And those of us who weren’t in front of the band dancing were swaying to the music and singing our hearts out. Another fine time was had by all. They are planning a 70s night some time this season, and that should be fun too. If you’re in the Sarasota/Bradenton area, you really can’t go wrong with the Marauders or Yesterdayze.
