by Alex Lloyd Gross

It is rare that a day comes with plenty of events to do from sun up until sundown and beyond. Let’s start with sun up. In Bristol Township,there will be a radio and electronics themed flea market. It’s called a Hamfest and it’s going to be held at the Bristol Township campus of the Bucks County Community College. If you enjoy tinkering with electronics or building something, this is the event for you.

You can then travel into the city for the last day of Fan Expo. Lots to see and do there. It closes at 5:00 PM. You can spend four hours there and not even know it.

Night Time is great for live music. Al Stewart is at the Keswick Theater, There, he will do a smorgasbord hot songs, mostly from his three biggest records. A few tickets remain.

About an hour away, at the Sellersville Theater, you can see Sean Chambers. Chambers, a native Floridian and a Florida Music Hall of Fame inductee, has recently formed a new band that features ex-Savoy Brown members Pat DeSalvo on bass and drummer Garnet Grimm.

Both Grimm and DeSalvo were part of the longest continuously running lineup in Savoy Brown’s history up until the tragic passing of Savoy Brown co-founder/guitarist Kim Simmonds in 2022.  The band will perform several Savoy Brown classics along with Sean’s original music.Sean’s main guitar playing influences are Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and his early professional music experience was gained while touring for four years (1998-2003) with legendary blues guitarist Hubert Sumlin, who had cut his blues teeth with Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf.
