Longtime Grovites celebrate Bobby's new CD

Coconut Grove's own Bobby Ingram played to a full house at the Coconut Grove Sailing Club on Tuesday night. It seemed like every longtime Grovite came out to celebrate his new CD.
"Post Cards From Coconut Grove," Bobby's new CD can be purchased on iTunes & Amazon.

It was a magical evening -- great music, great fun, a true old Grove event. Bobby Ingram was at his best, the backup was terrific, and Bobby's daughter wonderful. Encore?!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Welcome to the Grove" cited Captain Bobby as he brought the whole crew to the CG Sailing Club for a rockin' full moon-risin' dance party! Bobby's daughter, Bryn Ingram, sang several songs with her legendary, proud father...she blew a lot of people away with her soulful, powerful voice! Bryn is featured on Bobby's new Postcards from Coconut Grove CD.

Guitarist Kevin Hurley, also on the CD, directed the band, which included Larry on bass, keyboards, Dana on steel guitar & dobro, and sitting in, a fab lead guitarist, Alejandro on mandolin, and Grove legend Eddie Zyne & local fave Tony Sinatra making it work on drums!

The bar and deck were packed and non-members bought drinks for cash. A bit pricey, but hey, it was a party & maybe this type of fun, musical evening will catch on (hint hint Sailing Club)! Local celebs danced alongside sailors, Bobby-friends & fans came in from NYC, Vero, Stuart & elsewhere, and first-timers to CGSC loved the setting, the view, the vibe, & Sailboat Bay. Yep, the 'Old Grove'... with the people that made it special. That's why we love it... & why we're still here!

Were non-members allowed to buy drinks and listen to the music, or were they told to go drink water from a hose with earmuffs on?

For a dump, that club gets uppity.

@11:15 No water hose, no earmuffs! Ha! It was a cash bar and it was busy all night long! Would be great if they - the Sailing Club powers that be - do something like that once a month or so. An open house musical jam...people want it, they need it - it's a win-win.

It's was anything, but a dump. Everyone, both members and non-members were having a great time and everyone seemed festive & in good spirits. There were no water hoses or ear muffs, so are we to all assume that really pissed your off, what with everyone having a great time, right?

Who would know that they were allowed at this private, exclusive club on public land?

Particularly when that place (and the people who run it) are so uninviting...
