Another Year, Another WPLJ Summer Kick Off with Scott And Todd! 🙂 This is at least my 7th year covering this massive Jenkinson’s event. In the past, I have shot it for Jenks, but the past two years, Coors Light have hired me to cover the event. It kind of SUCKS waking up at 5am, just working the Thursday Night Kick Off at Jenks the night before with my boys, Big Orange Cone, but I grin and bear it and get down there! I have seen Melissa Melissa Etheridge, Hootie And The Blowfish, The Go Go’s, Train, Goo Goo Dolls, Bowling For Soup and this year, The Beach Boys!
At first, I was a little disappointed with the musical guest. I was like, what the hell! Looking back at all these other amazing artists, I kind of felt ripped off! After going to the event and the more I thought of it, who would be a more perfect band to kick off summer! I was thinking, come on, these guys are like legends in the music industry! I have grown up liking the Beach Boys over the years and I guess I forgot how many songs I actually know and enjoyed! After seeing them live and meeting them, I was in this total Beach Boys mood for the past 2 weeks! They were actually really good and Mike Love was a great guy! I downloaded their greatest hits CD and have been enjoying it ever since!
