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.

In a business where success is defined as getting a second single and longevity measured in nanoseconds, simply surviving for 30-plus years is a rare accomplishment. But Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes have not only survived, they have flourished: more than 30 albums, several EPs and a box set; thousands of live performances around the globe; a legion of dedicated and enthusiastic fans; dozens of classic songs; a release named by Rolling Stone one of the "Top 100 albums of the '70s and '80s." Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes emerged from the New Jersey shore scene in 1974, and though they carried over a significant influence (and some key personnel) from Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, the Jukes evolved as more of a white R&B horn band in the Memphis Stax Records tradition. Organized by singer John Lyon, guitarist/songwriter Steve Van Zandt (who decamped for the E Street Band in 1975, but continued to produce, manage, and write songs for the Jukes) and Richie Rosenberg, the band is well known for high-energy shows and no-holds-barred songs, including "/ Don't Wanna Go Home," "Havin' a Party," "The Fever," "Talk to Me," "Trapped Again," and "This Time It's For Real." Still tinged with the exuberant rhythm and blues feel that is the Jukes' trademark, and loaded with the driving sound of the legendary Jukes horn section, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes continue to expound their signature Jersey Shore sound — all for the sheer joy of it. This performance is a Bring Your Own Chair (BYOC) event. Tickets are required for all patrons, including infants and toddlers.

For the first time in her decade-long career, Colbie Caillat has made an album exactly the way she wanted. Called “The Malibu Sessions” It’s also the first for her newly minted label, PlummyLou Records, distributed by RED. Eschewing traditional recording studios, the Grammy Award-winning, multiplatinum-selling singer-songwriter—and renowned beach lover— recorded The Malibu Sessions, out Oct. 7, over a two-month period in a rented house in Southern California’s beautiful Broad Beach. The result is a sun-kissed collection of breezy, buoyant, yet often vulnerable, songs, with timeless harmonies, catchy melodies and a harmonious vibe that recalls classic ‘70s rock. Jason Reeves, Justin Young and Nelly Joy all lived in the house with Colbie and helped create that record. When it was time to tour, they went on the road with her and created a very special acoustic show the spanned Colbie’s 10 year career. That album and tour led to the formation of Caillat’s new band Gone West. Gone West is a new Nashville-based band featuring two-time Grammy Award Winner Colbie Caillat, multi-platinum singer/songwriter Jason Reeves, four-time Hawaii Music Award Winner Justin Kawika Young and ACM and CMT nominated artist Nelly Joy.

Songwriter. Guitarist. Singer. Bandleader. At only 22, Marcus King has been writing songs and performing onstage for half his lifetime, delivering a southern fried brand of blues and psychedelia inspired by rock n’ roll. All five members of the band — drummer Jack Ryan, bass player Stephen Campbell, trumpeter/trombonist Justin Johnson, sax player Dean Mitchell and keyboard player DeShawn “D-Vibes”Alexander — create a blistering, yet soulful unit that has honed their synergy through endless touring. King is a Blue Ridge Mountain boy, born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina. A fourth-generation musician, he traces his lineage back to his fiddle-playing great-grandfather, while his grandfather was a fiddler and guitarist. His dad is Marvin King, is a singer/guitarist who has toured nationally since the '70s with various artists as well as his own group, Marvin King and Blue Revival. Since he was a teenager, he’s traded licks with famous fans and mentors Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks whenever their paths have crossed. Marcus King doesn’t strive for authenticity, he never had to — it’s busting out of his DNA in every note he plays and every word he sings. This focused, firmly rooted artist isn’t just perpetuating the proud legacy of American rock and soul music; with the musically enthralling, deeply personal new album, "Carolina Confessions," he and his great band are adding their own eloquent chapter to that rich narrative.

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.

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

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
