Sunday at the Meyer/Waterfront with Tributes/Originals has been good/great.

Sunday at the Waterfront (formerly Sunday at the Meyer) has been good this summer, with a stream of great tribute bands interrupted nicely by the great performance from Edwin McCain in August. We hope to see a great show coming up October 16 with “UV,” a U2 tribute band (originally from Canada?) with plenty of good reviews we’ve found from fans in south Florida.

Edwin McCain, whose 1998 hit “I’ll Be” hit number 5 on the US charts, had no problem connecting to the audience, and was backed by a great set of musicians for his August show. The City of West Palm made a good pick with this one…

He played his hits along with some other great original songs and threw in a couple of covers, including some “blue-eyed soul.” While the weather was as hot as August usually is, the choice of the Meyer for the summer lets the high rises to the west shield the crowd from the sun for most of the show.

The September event – Absolute Queen – was much better than we thought it would be browsing the web and YouTube. The group opened strong and did a remarkable job covering the Queen sound accurately.

Here’s hoping the U2 tribute follows suit. Here’s from their web site: “Based in Canada and touring internationally, UV – The U2 Tribute Show & Band International was formed during U2’s Vertigo Tour in order to perform for special after concert parties that U2’s travel and tour operator at the time, ETS, put on in support of U2’s shows. UV has toured internationally, bringing the live U2 concert experience to hundreds of thousands of fans at packed music halls, festivals and corporate events across the USA and in Canada, Mexico, and South America, presenting the music they love to other U2 fans with painstaking detail.”

Look forward to seeing you all there!
