Someone tell me again why the Clown Band wasn't invited to play the Waterfront Concert again this year. Just can't admit your mistakes and move on can you?
X Grand Haven Taxpayer.........
The official word I heard while actually attending the show at the legion was that the Coast Guard organizers wanted to attract a younger audience. They felt that the Clown Band was a bit "dated" and instead opted for "attractions" that could draw in "younger" crowds.
I think they are full of crap. Clown Band is one of the main draws for me to the Coast Guard Festival. Take them out of it, and my eagerness to attend will dwindle to almost nothing.
Did it work? Is the crowd younger? More of them? Bet not........ Judging by the photos of the crowd the organizers lost what, $5.00 per? Bet the Legion made a killing.... Good for them!!!
LOL, yes it was good for us and we appreciate the band and their following very much. Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you got...
I didn't even know they were going to be at the Legion or would have been there. Sorry I missed them. Yes, it is good to have some changes, but, obviously this wasn't a good one. They are still a crowd favorite and I hope the Coast Guard committee isn't too proud to admit they should come back and will invite them to the waterfront for next year's festival.
