Dinner/dance opens maritime park’s season this Friday night

Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park

by Bill Powell
Events Director
Deltaville Maritime Museum

Yes, we have had no spring! Let’s put all that behind us and enjoy the great weather forecast for the opening weekend of the Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park May 11-12. Calling for no rain, mid-70s and sunny. That’s the stuff! This is the weekend the museum begins its official events season and it all starts with the 12th annual Shrimp and Barbecue Dinner and Dance with the fabulous “Taters” this Friday, May 11, from 5-9 p.m. 

If you have never heard the “Taters,” then you need to rework your bucket list.

“The Taters present an eclectic mix of roots-rock, power-pop, country and Americana, a sound that’s been described as “Country roots-pop with the genius songwriting of 60s & 70s power-pop . . . a curious mix of Mavericks, Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and Beatles”—(CDBaby).

Billboard magazine calls it “American roots-rock with thoroughly modern, totally hip sensibilities.”

No Depression magazine describes it like this: “Think ‘Beatles For Sale’ if Marty Robbins were a primary influence instead of Carl Perkins.”

The Washington Post says the Taters “successfully combine the best elements of Buddy Holly with the vocal harmonies of the Everly Brothers. Layers of acoustic and electric guitars mix with 2, 3 and 4 part harmonies to give each song its own personality while the lead vocals and songwriting pull the parts together into a very satisfying whole.”
