Rain can’t dampen A1A amphitheater concert

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – A stout crowd came out Friday night to listen to the “original and official” Jimmy Buffett cover band A1A in a drizzling rain, but the patrons brought their umbrellas and their boogie boots.

It didn’t take long to get the crowd in a tropical mood, mixing some of Buffett’s best hits with a fresh mixture of other beach and island hits. From Bob Marley to Hank Williams, the energized A1A led by Jeff Pike kept the enthusiasm going nonstop.

This second-ever concert got a lot of folks out of their chairs to dance down front. There were beach balls flying, bodies gyrating and people literally from 8 to 80 moving and swaying in the night.

If the Newtown amphitheater can generate this kind of enthusiasm all the time, the city is going “to need a bigger boat.”
