This weekend's band hop

By Mary Ellen Thompson | It’s finally here! The weekend we’ve all been waiting for.  One without rain in the forecast.  Let’s get hopping… As always, Breakwater Restaurant and Bar has Vic Varner playing Thursday evening from 6:30 until 9, so hop on over; it’s the best place to be on a Thursday evening.

Friday has some favorites so you’re going to have to get started early, and get busy, to cover some ground. Hop starts at Lowcountry Produce Market and Cafe with Kirk Dempsey who will be joined by Beaufort’s very best Beekman Webb and Scott Kinsey. Chris Jones will be playing at the Back Porch Grill from 7:30 to 10:30, it’s really the very best venue for outdoor dining and music on that side of the bridge.

But then there is the other side of the bridge – the sassy St. Helena side where there is always something going on, in this case it’s those girls we all adore, the Sweetgrass Angels, at the Foolish Frog from 7 – 11. So put on your best hopping shoes and get going.

Saturday has a couple of wonderful bands playing so start at the Back Porch Grill at 7:30 with Amber and the Fossils, who are just terrific, and then hop on out to the Foolish Frog and enjoy Double Naught Spies from 7 – 11. It’s supposed to be a nice night so enjoy sitting under the stars and being entertained to your heart’s content.

Sunday’s stroll is gently to Saltus River Grill where you can enjoy a great view and the delightful music of Mr. Vic Varner and friends from 6:30 until 9.

Enjoy. Be safe. Tip Generously. Band Hop.
