Rehoboth Beach

The popular Rehoboth Beach Museum Walking Tours begin on Thursday, May 16 starting at 9:00 a.m. from the Rehoboth Avenue bandstand. In addition, the first of a series of Evening Strolls along the Boardwalk will begin on Thursday, May 30 at 5:30 pm. The morning Walking Tours will be held every other Thursday morning throughout the summer, except in July when there will be only one tour on July 18, and then picking up again on Thursday August 8. The tour is a 2-hour gentle stroll around downtown. It costs $10.00 payable on the day of the tour to the tour guide. Look for the pink umbrella held by tour guide Jean Brolund or the black umbrella held by tour guide Gerry Beaulieu. Reservations are required and may be obtained by calling the Rehoboth Beach Museum at (302) 227-7310. You may leave your name and telephone number on the answering machine if no one is available to take your call. The popular evening stroll, began last year, will be on May 30 at 5:30 pm. An evening stroll along the Boardwalk was a tradition for many years. After a long day of surf and sand, families would often take a walk on the boardwalk after dinner, sometimes stopping for ice cream for dessert. Recreate that tradition with the tour leaders. The morning Walking Tours provide general information about the history of Rehoboth Beach while touching on several of the storms that have shaped the coastline and the beachfront in town. The tour guide will lead walkers from the bandstand along Rehoboth Avenue, pointing out landmarks and providing photos of historical sites and events. Topics covered are the Native people of the area, the Methodist Camp Meetings, Hotels, Railroad Service, and Horn’s Pavilion. Other topics on the tour may include shipwrecks, naming ships such as the Falmouth, the Merrimac, the Severn, and the SS Thomas Tracy, the railroad, the Belhaven Hotel, restaurants such as the Robert Lee and Snyder’s, and of course, Funland. Tour goers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water or fill up a water bottle at the historic Women’s Christian Temperance Union Fountain on the boardwalk, one of the landmarks mentioned on the tour. There are restrooms available at the bandstand area. Anyone interested in forming their own group for a private walking tour can call the Museum at (302) 227-7310 to make arrangements.

As The War and Treaty, Michael and Tanya serve up healing and pain robbing with freewheeling joy on a monumental new full-length album, Healing Tide. An original tour-de-force produced by Buddy Miller, the collection swaggers with a confidence only gained by artists who are wholly, proudly, themselves. Funky bass lines, keys, lap steel, acoustic strings, and stripped-down percussion create a swampy Southern soul bed for the couple’s transcendent vocals. “I hope people see our hearts on this record,” Michael says. “I want them to experience freedom. To feel again.” Michael wrote every track on Healing Tide alone. Opener “Love Like There’s No Tomorrow” sets the tone both thematically and vocally. Stark tambourine gives way to Michael’s gravelly locomotive vocals, which are joined in an early chorus by Tanya’s soaring harmonies. “Today is all that matters,” Michael says. “I would say that The War and Treaty’s mission is to embrace the now.” Tanya takes over in “Are You Ready to Love Me,” as an old-school groove propelled by bass, electric guitar, and pedal steel growls. With unblinking confidence, Tanya asks the question too many women are too afraid to muster. “It puts us, as women, in a position of strength,” Tanya says. “A lot of women endure unnecessary pain because the question wasn’t asked or answered. I always say, let’s jump off the bridge together, hand in hand. You got to be in love to hit the water at the same time.” Featuring a divine cameo from Emmylou Harris, “Here is Where the Loving is At” offers a moving portrait of loyal femininity and grace. Sweet but frank, “One and the Same” shuffles through a message of unity and recognition of ourselves in others who don’t look or sound like we do. Over crying steel, “It’s Not Over Yet” extends empathy and an outstretched hand to those losing faith. Both Tanya and Michael admit to having favorites. “Little New Bern” hits hard for Tanya, painting vivid pictures of her grandparents’ farm. “That’s where happiness started for me, at my grandparents’ every summer, barefoot in the dirt, down at the pond, playing with the frogs,” she says. “I think everybody has a Little New Bern.” Michael singles out “Jeep Cherokee Laredo,” a scorcher that tells The War and Treaty story. “It starts off with me telling my truth — I said I’d never love again, never get married again. There were so many ‘I would never do agains,’” Michael says. “Then here comes this girl, and I put my foot in my mouth. And I got to live up to it.” A thumping sing-along, the song swings and jumps with joyful shouts from both Michael and Tanya. Another standout, the title track offers an invitation: be part of humanity’s reconciliation. Michael wrote the song first as a gauntlet thrown down not to others, but to himself. “I was confronting myself,” he says. “I thought, ‘I wonder if Dr. King ever felt like giving up. Wonder if he thought, ‘I just want to be with Coretta and the kids, whisk off into the sunset.’” Michael pauses. “He’d be alive. So how heavy is the responsibility? Are you strong enough to pick it up?” “You have to have a deep place of love within yourself to be vulnerable,” Tanya says. “With The War and Treaty, we allow people to see two people that are not perfect. We get on stage. We sweat. We’re overweight. We yell. We get ugly, we scream! My hair comes loose. We’re vulnerable — naked — in front of people, and it’s a chain reaction. It allows them to be vulnerable, too.” The War and Treaty deliver live shows and records that make the hairs on the back of necks stand up. Their music and stories bring tears and goosebumps, but ultimately, more is at work. In the midst of Michael and Tanya’s open, beaming faces and united voices, facades met away. Walls are torn down. “I want people to feel like we care,” Michael says. “When you think about artists, you don’t think about that.” He pauses and grins broadly. “But that’s the way I want the world to feel about The War and Treaty.” $25

Front man Mike DelGuidice, living a dream. After 18 years of playing Billy Joel’s music in his band Big Shot, Billy Joel heard Mike sing, then hired him on the spot to join his band full time. Mike is the only musician on the planet, and probably the history of music for this type of situation, where the front guy of the band is actually in the band of the artist his band covers. Mike, who is currently on tour with Billy Joel, is also a well-known Long Island musician, a brilliant vocalist and master of several instruments, including bass guitar, rhythm guitar, piano and drums, and the author of two albums, "My Street" and "Miller Place." Mike and his extraordinary band Big Shot, which include other current longtime legendary members of Billy Joel’s touring band, guitarist Tommy Byrnes and drummer Chuck Burgi are well-known and respected for providing a show of Billy Joel's song book packed with hit after chart-topping hit, (and some album cuts for the die hard Billy Joel fan) in a high energy, interactive stage performance. On any given night they will also astonish you with renditions of songs by Elton John, McCartney, Beatles, Journey, and others. The other members of the band, John Scarpulla, Carmine Giglio, and Nick Dimichino also have impressive resumes, working, recording and touring with Hall & Oats, Michael Bolton, Diana Ross, LeAnn Rimes, Nine Days, Huey Lewis, Tower of Power, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, bunch of Broadway shows including Billy Joel’s ‘Movin Out’ and a lot more. This performance is a Bring Your Own Chair (BYOC) event. Children 12 and under are free to attend. $25

Blood is thicker than water, and it can leave scars. But like it or not, those in our bloodlines are stuck with us — and us with them — for better or for worse. Paul Janeway understands this conundrum of heritage well. The singer of the Birmingham, Alabama–based rock and roll soul band St. Paul & The Broken Bones was born and raised in America’s Deep South, a place where social consciousness can still take a backseat to unsavory traditions and where a family’s expectations sometimes supersede all else. Despite the fierce familial love, he enjoyed and constantly gave back while growing up — especially to his father and grandfather — from an early age Janeway realized that the way he thought about the world was a little different from those around him, and he began to seek an outlet from which to share what was in his heart and on his mind. Blessed with a powerful voice, a magnetism for connecting with people, and a gift for making music, he traded in a career in ministry to start his own band. $39

Tickets required for all patrons, including infants and toddlers. No re-entry permitted. Seats are provided. Ben Folds is widely regarded as one of the major music influencers of our generation. He’s created an enormous body of genre-bending music that includes pop albums with Ben Folds Five, multiple solo albums, and numerous collaborative records. His last album was a blend of pop songs and his Concerto for Piano and Orchestra that soared to No. 1 on both the Billboard classical and classical crossover charts. For over a decade he’s performed with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras, and in 2017 was named as the first ever Artistic Advisor to the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center. In addition to touring, Folds is currently writing his first book, described as a collection of interrelated essays and anecdotes about art, life, and music. The release is slated for late summer of 2019. He is also no stranger to television, having been featured for five seasons as a judge on NBC's critically-acclaimed acapella show "The Sing Off," and continues to appear in cameo roles on cable and network TV shows. An avid photographer, Folds is a member of the prestigious Sony Artisans of Imagery, completed an assignment in 2017 as a photo editor for National Geographic, and was recently featured in a mini-documentary by the Kennedy Center's Digital Project on his photographic work. An outspoken champion for arts education and music therapy funding in our nation's public schools, in 2016 Ben held the distinction as the only artist to appear at both national political conventions advocating for arts education, and has served for over five years as an active member of the distinguished Artist Committee of Americans For The Arts. Violent Femmes formed in 1981 as an acoustic punk band playing on the streets of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Their main influences at that time were Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps and The Velvet Underground. Their goal was to rock harder than any other acoustic act on the planet. After being rejected for an audition by a local nightclub, the Femmes set up outside a Pretenders gig and began to play. Pretenders’ lead singer Chrissie Hynde asked them to open that night’s show, which gave the young band a publicity boost and caught the attention of Richard Hell, who invited the Femmes to open for him in NYC. A rave review in the New York Times eventually led to a record deal, which in turn spawned worldwide touring. Violent Femmes eponymous debut album became the first and only album in Billboard history to enter the charts with a platinum certification- eight years after its release. Over the ensuing three decades, the Femmes became a mainstay of festivals, clubs, and theaters in more than 20 countries worldwide. MTV’s “Unplugged” show was inspired by the Femmes, although they never actually appeared on it. Their raw sound and honest lyrical perspective have been cited as an influence by artists as diverse as Pink, Keith Urban, The Smiths, The Pixies, John Cusack, Mark Morris, and Wim Wenders. More than 30 years into their careers, Violent Femmes will spend 2019 touring extensively and have announced a new album to be released in late summer. $39 – $149

We will also utilize a large LED screen during this performance as an enhanced viewing option for patrons. The contradictions in John Butler are evident, and, despite his magnificently successful career (with number one albums in Australia and sell-out tours), his is a troubled soul. One of the most successful recording artists Australia has ever produced and a musician whose reputation has begun to rock the waters of both Europe and America, Butler is nevertheless a man on the edge. Where will he go next? Up or down? Despite the tensions within the man and his music, the new album makes his future trajectory abundantly clear. An independent role model, founder of Australia’s Jarrah Records, family man and proud skateboard aficionado, JB, in spite of his matey public persona, remains an enigma. He is from everywhere and nowhere, an Australian/American, Everyman/Nowhere Man, and his music mixes rootedness and rootlessness, pain and celebration in a way that is utterly beguiling. He is the consummate rebel-refugee whose songs chart disenchantment with the corporate world and show a yearning for truth along with an ongoing struggle for a sense of locus. The songs’ off-center grooves have always been their charm, and yet now there is a sense, in the new album at least, of resolution and peace after years of being against the world and what it offered. Maybe the man on the brink will not jump after all? Tickets required for all patrons, including infants and toddlers. No re-entry permitted. $39 – $159

Kool & the Gang have influenced the music of three generations. Thanks to songs like "Celebration," "Cherish," "Jungle Boogie," "Summer Madness" and "Open Sesame," they’ve earned two Grammy Awards, seven American Music Awards, 25 Top Ten R&B hits, nine Top Ten Pop hits and 31 gold and platinum albums. Kool & the Gang has performed continuously for the past 43 years, longer than any R&B group in history. Their bulletproof funk and jazzy arrangements have also made them the most sampled band of all time. In 1964, Khalis Bayyan (AKA Ronald Bell) and his brother, Robert “Kool” Bell, joined Jersey City neighborhood friends Robert “Spike” Mickens, Dennis “Dee Tee” Thomas, Ricky Westfield, GeorgeBrown, and Charles Smith to create a unique musical blend of jazz, soul and funk. At first calling themselves the Jazziacs, the band went through various names — The New Dimensions, The Soul TownBand, Kool & the Flames — before settling on their moniker. Over the next several years they solidified their musical chemistry on the rough-and-tumble East Coast music scene supporting acts like Bill Cosby, Ritchie Havens and Richard Pryor. Their self-titled 1969 debut album introduced their signature instrumental sound and fierce horn arrangements and spawned their first Billboard R&B charted single, "Kool & the Gang." Tickets required for all patrons, including infants and toddlers. No re-entry permitted. Seats are provided. $44 – $84

Glen Burtnik, alumnus of Styx and the original Beatlemania (he played Paul), touring bassist/vocalist with the current version of ELO, major label recording artist and hit songwriter (“Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” – Don Henley/Patty Smyth, “Spirit of a Boy, Wisdom of a Man” – Randy Travis, and others) brings you the Summer of Love Concert. The Summer of Love Concert focuses on iconic rock music from the period of time generally between the 1967 release of The Beatles revolutionary album Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and the famous Woodstock Music and Art Festival in 1969. Joined by 12 or more performers including a horn section, strings, keyboardists, percussionists, background vocalists and an incredible rock rhythm section, the Summer of Love Experience recreates “note for note and absolutely live” the songs, and the psychedelically flavored spirit, of the Woodstock Generation. “I’ve always had a playlist on my iPod named The Summer of Love. I’m actually a hippie at heart. The music of that era is probably what moves me the most,” said Burtnik in a recent interview. To further enhance that experience, The Summer of Love Concert can also feature Marc Rubinstein’s Pig Light Show which is recognized as one of the most famous psychedelic light shows in rock history and is well known for its use in the late 1960s as the house light show at Bill Graham’s legendary New York City concert hall, the Fillmore East.

Seats are not provided or permitted in Standing Room Only section. The 12-member strong Tedeschi Trucks Band carries a distinguished reputation as one of the premier live bands performing today. Embracing improvisation over convention, and rarely repeating a set list, the genre-defying collective have seemingly endless potential to explore any musical territory — from their own catalog of Grammy-winning originals to Sly & the Family Stone, Miles Davis, George Jones, Joe Cocker or Nina Simone. Trucks’ masterful guitar skills and Tedeschi’s soaring vocals and bluesy guitar shine but don’t overpower the breadth of world-class musicianship on stage, a testament to the genuine respect within TTB’s ranks. The band’s latest concert film/audio release Live From The Fox Oakland, nominated for a 2018 Grammy, makes it clear that Trucks and Tedeschi have no intention of slowing down now. “I haven’t found this band’s ceiling yet,” says Trucks in the film. For Tedeschi Trucks Band, there may not be one. Celebrating in 2019 its 10th year as a group, the band launched of a fourth studio album in February. Opening for Tedeschi Trucks Band, for nearly half a decade, The National Reserve has spent Friday nights lighting it up at Brooklyn bars, winning over fans with epic sets and a remarkable breadth of song-craft and showmanship. With their 2018 release on Ramseur Records, Motel La Grange, the band has crafted a rich and raucous collection that instantly places them among Americana’s finest with its force, directness, and performance not unlike some lost recording unearthed from the golden age of 70's rock ‘n’ roll. Founded and fronted by singer-guitarist Sean Walsh, The National Reserve meld gutbucket R&B with New Orleans funk workouts, late night soul, and boozy rock ‘n’ roll to create their own timeless brand of music. The National Reserve is set to bring all the fun and fire of their fervent Friday night sets to the rest of the world, eager to pack as many folks into their late-night scene as possible.
