Midge Marsden rocked Blockhouse Bay Beach yet again with a strong set of R&B.
When you get old pros like Midge and his band, you have to feel for the warm up act that precedes them. The old guys took to the stage and from the very first song the crowd was instantly energised. One couple sprang up to dance right away. It wasn’t long before there was a seething mass of bodies swaying as they danced to the beats.
As the band played on, the tide came in and the twilight disappeared. The mellow crowd soaked up the ambience and then it was all over except for the walk back up the hill from the beach.
At least this year Midge didn’t say that it was definitely his last gig. He even hinted that he could be back next year if the crowd asked for him! It’s hard to imagine Music in Parks at Blockhouse Bay Beach without him!
