I enjoyed a weekend getaway at the Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head, SC and had the pleasure of singing and jamming with The Dazzling DelRays, a band that has been playing together for 40 years. They play primarily songs from the 50s and 60s, so I sang “It’s in His Kiss” and “Be My Little Baby” for their gigs at The Quarterdeck and on board the Riverdance. The band is composed of brothers Jim and Larry Farese, and Jim Meade. They all play instruments and sing, and do three-part harmony on almost all of their tunes. They put on a high energy, fun show that people truly enjoy. It’s a reminder of music’s role in entertaining people, creating positive experiences and joy. I am also inspired by the longevity of their musical careers–it is no small feat to keep a band together for 40 years!
