New Way Bar / SaturDay December 12, 2015
The 14th edition of BeerMas was a tad bittersweet as The Candy Band is calling it quits after this gig. But that did not stop everyone from partying with vigor! Our annual Christmas celebration started with Domino Effect. Then the Candy Band hit the stage and did their regular set. No gimicks or games. One last time, some kids music to soothe the adults. Next up was Paula's new band "Paula, Rob and Hippie Bob" who were full of surprises including a surf version of the Lions fight song "Gridiron Heroes" (Scott's Favorite Song!) Free Beer set up our gear and only had to wait for Jim Edelman to arrive from his family dinner, unfortunately scheduled for the same evening. The set kicked off with a Motor City feel including The Mutants and Iggy Pop. Then the party light turned on and the dance floor filled . There was a bit of a mishap at the start of The Grinch for our Holiday set, but we laughed it off, did the song correctly after our second start and finished off the evening playing whatever the crowd wanted including Brittany and Rocky Horror. Hopefully the Candy Band reunion tour starts on Beermas #15 next year.
