Shelley Cushing and her dad, “Buzz” were attending their 91st and 45th DMB concerts, respectively. Having driven from Beverly, MA for the concert, Shelley gushed that “Bethel Woods is the most gorgeous venue we’ve seen the band perform in, by far.”


Clearly, there were many talented musicians on stage, and the show was visually stunning to look at—but I am apparently far too old (along with a healthy dose of “been there-done that”) to appreciate what so many others wax rhapsodic about. I didn’t get it and found myself (gasp!) anxiously looking forward to the upcoming Doo Wop festival. In short—the DMB was not my cup of tea. ‘Nuff said.
