\ UNIONVILLE \
If you round-round you get around then you might wanna grab your little deuce coupe this evening and head up to Unionville in 905’s York Region, where the local BIA is kicking off its Summer Concert Series with a free outdoor Main Street concert by The Beach Party Boys at 7 p.m.
Featuring our old friend, the constantly self-reinventing Fernando Curcione, this group takes your pet sounds and gives ’em good vibrations with precision and authenticity through their entire show, as we enjoyed experiencing at Linsmore Tavern a couple of years ago. Perfect for summer days and summer nights!
So don’t worry baby —just forget Kokomo or those California girls or anything else. Wouldn’t it be nice to just pick up your Rhonda or Barbara Ann and hop in the T-bird, take the 409 north and go somewhere that you can hear music? And God only knows what other fun, fun, fun you might get up to!
