20 Days in November - Day 20: Skyla Burrell

Our last stop of seeing 20 days of live music was at our favorite South Florida music venue: Boston’s on the Beach. Located just across the beach in Delray Beach hosts live music every day - throughout the day. A typical pastime for us is to spend part of the morning on the beach, and then lunch and music at the restaurant. Plus, they are extremely kid friendly - a free Boston's Frisbee goes farther than the kids meal it holds. This evening we headed straight to Boston's from the airport in order to see at least one set from a rising blues act, The Skyla Burrell Blues Band. This is one hard working band that came to our attention playing annually at the Adams County Winery. It also helps that the band was a semi-finalist in the 22nd Annual International Blues Challenge. Tonight the band was smoking. band co-founder Mark Tomlinson and Burrell are terrors on the guitar - their styles are similar to Tinsley Ellis. With family in tow - I didn't bother recording the song titles - but we enjoyed every second. What more do you want - sitting on a deck, a cool breeze, and great music. I might have to return for a few Damon Fowler shows next year.
