Saturday night at 10 p.m., the Billy D Light Trio headlines Dogtooth Live in Wildwood. This band is straight rock ‘n’ roll, playing the best music from a small window in time – 1955-1985. Sometimes Billy D Light and his band get a little funky, but for the most part they like to focus on the lost art of rock ‘n’ roll. No matter where the trio goes, they kick it out hard!
Make “Cape May’s Living Room” – the Brown Room at Congress Hall – your Saturday night place to be. Darin MacDonald brings beautiful renditions of your favorite Billy Joel and Elton John tunes to the Brown Room. Find your place in front of the fireplace and listen to him play and sing at the Steinway grand. With exceptional vocals and captivating piano skills, you’re in for a special night for you and yours.
