He’s set to play SunFest Sunday afternoon, but Andy Grammer, of “Honey I’m Good” fame, played a brief set at the iHeartRadio Theater in West Palm Beach before that, to meet and greet fans and answer questions. Among the interesting tidbits he spilled: That he has a hard time choosing whether to go see his wife or his dog when he comes home off tour; that his “Dancing With The Stars” experience was enriched by his varsity sports background, and that “Honey I’m Good,” about refusing a drunken bar hook-up to honor your true love, “could have been written about Florida” with its myriad of drunken hook-up opportunities. He’s charming. Looking forward to seeing more.
ZZ Top, the Texas guitar blues-rock legends, have canceled their scheduled April 30 performance at SunFest after bassist Dusty Hill fractured his shoulder. Meanwhile, organizers are looking for a replacement act.
“Our first thought is with Dusty,” said Paul Jamieson, SunFest Executive Director. “I am sure I speak for all the fans on this. While we were looking forward to the show, we are sorry to hear of the circumstances of this cancellation and send Dusty our wishes for a speedy recovery. For us, the show goes. The Saturday lineup remains a full day of great music including G-Easy, Fitz and The Tantrums, Capital Cities, The Roots, Flogging Molly, Rick Springfield, Salt N Pepa, Goldfinger and another ten acts performing.”
Meanwhile, the cancellation has caused some shuffling that night’s schedule. G-Easy will now be appearing on the Ford Stage and Fitz and The Tantrums and Capital Cities will appear on the JetBlue Stage. The as-yet unannounced replacement for ZZ Top will play at the Tire Kingdom Stage.
