Last week’s concert at Tribute Park was a bit of a washout, but it wasn’t because of the weather. On a beautiful but breezy Thursday evening, dozens gathered for the Katz concert series event featuring Ddendyl, from Season 6 of NBC’s The Voice, but an accident lead to an early end.
...Ddendyl and her three-piece band started playing under the gazebo of the park. Ddendyl sang some of her original music off of her new EP Lonely Heart, and captivated the crowd with a bit of Johnny Cash, before singing God Bless America, as a fireboat arrived and was supposed to put on a display. The fireboat began to shoot up water after the song finished, which was a beautiful sight at sunset with the skyline in the background, but with the combination of the southeast wind, the tribute turned into an unintentional disaster.
The saltwater blew right into the park, causing people to pack up their chairs, cars along Beach Channel Drive to turn on their windshield wipers, and the band to pack up their soaked equipment, putting an early end to the event. Some stuck around to watch the stunning sunset, despite feeling a bit salty.
