The Sandbar Sports Grill at Cocoa Beach was the place to be on Florida’s Space Coast for reggae fans on Halloween. It was a special night headlined by Pepper frontman, Bret Bollinger and Tunnel Vision.
While the event was for all ages, and there were a few children still in their costumes, it was the perfect night for parents wanting adult time after an evening spent trick or treating with their little ones. There was no official Costume contest but Bob Ross unofficially won and stole the show! Tunnel Vision opened up the night, dressed as California State Troopers and acting the part with their lead, adding a fake mustache to his costume, which fell off mid set.
Mark Longenecker was the DJ and MC for the night, taking song requests and having the crowd dancing the night away.
The greatest highlights of the night was seeing both bands interacting with the fans and engaging them into singing along and bringing them closer. Guest appearances by The Late Ones and Beebs (and her Money Makers) were an added treat.
Bret Bollinger brought his Aloha spirit, covering his Pepper classics while performing his originals and closed the night with the Pepper hit, “Warning”. The song originally features Stick Figure, and for the night, it was a mashup with with Tunnel Vision and the Late Ones, making it the perfect ending to a great Halloween with the best of Florida, California and Hawaii!
As a reggae fan, and someone who loves an excuse to dress up, this was one of the best Halloween events of my life.
