Private Concert Under the Stars

Everyone who lives at Royal Palm Villas was in for a huge treat last night when Kelly McGuire showed up to play a private birthday concert.

Royal Palms was actually rocking.  THAT is a phrase I never thought I’d utter about my beloved condo community.  No offense guys.

Bonnie, Kelly and Roger

Kelly is a singer/song writer from Texas who fell in love with Belize years ago. And for as long as I’ve been here, he has been making the trip down a few times a year to visit and perform.  This time Kelly played three well attended shows at Fido’s over the weekend.  He has a pretty big following on Ambergris Caye.  Lots of groupies.  You can check him out on:  Kelly McGuire – Redfishisland.com.  And make sure to look jealously at his 2012 concert schedule.  Lucky guy.  Key West, Isla Mujeres, Costa Rica, Belize.  I always knew I should have been a rock star!

My new buddies Debbie and Tom Wagner from Ohio.
Even if country music is not your thing (I’ll admit…it’s not mine), if you love visiting or living in Belize, you will like Kelly’s music. And live?  It’s fantastic.  Many of his songs are about San Pedro and Belize with lyrics like:  “piers and palapas up and down the beach, boat’s by the dock taking people to the reef”.  You can’t help but get into it.   
Glen and Petie.  Miss Petie is pretending to be mad but secretly loving all of the rum punch.
If you love Jimmy Buffett and Jerry Jeff Walker you are going to LOVE Kelly’s stuff.  

Thanks Glen and birthday girl Tammy for inviting Kelly McGuire to perform and letting us all enjoy your party.

Under the stars, out by the pool and the beach, lots of rum punch and the small crowd singing along, it was a truly excellent night.

2012 is shaping up to be quite a year for visiting musicians in San Pedro.
