For the third time, my husband and I saw Felix Cavaliere! This time at Ocean Grove’s Auditorium.

The opening act was The Loving Spoonful! We never saw them before and it was awesome hearing their hits: “You Didn’t Have to Be So Nice,” “Nashville Cats,” “Do You Believe in Magic,” and “Summer in the City.”

Here is their website: http://www.lovinspoonful.com/

Last year I wrote about Felix Cavaliere’s show at Point Pleasant: https://maryannemistretta.wordpress.com/tag/felix-cavaliere/

This was another fabulous show from one of the greatest song writers of the 1960s. My two all time favorites are “It’s a Beautiful Morning,” “How Can I Be Sure,” and “Groovin’.”

Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals at Jenks Club in Point Pleasant, NJ, July 15, 2014

SAM_5313Me with Felix Cavaliere

It was a stormy night at the Jersey Shore, but my husband Dennis and I braved the storm to check out Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals at Jenk’s Club.

We had the time of our lives. We got a sweet seat at the bar and had a super cool bartender named David who thought he was unfamiliar with the music, but turned out he really liked all the songs and kept asking my husband which songs were Felix’s. The three of us were in such awe. I couldn’t help but cry during, “It’s a Beautiful Morning” and “Groovin’.” Other favorites were “How Could I Be Sure,” “Good Love,” “You Better Run” (later recorded by Pat Benatar), and “I Ain’t Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore” (which was co-written by my friend Lori Burton who I knew since I was 15), sung by the drummer.

Felix also did songs by Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and Sly and the Family Stone.

A really great time! I’m ecstatic!
