Nick Moss and the Fliptops Make Waves at the Beach Shack
-- by Shannon --

Nick Moss and the Fliptops
When my fiancé Piano Willie asked me if I would like to come to Florida and the BEACH in March, I responded with a very resounding “OH YEAH”!!! Not only is the temperature in Milwaukee at least 50 degrees colder than Cocoa Beach FL, but I knew I would have fun seeing blues and take in some sightseeing.

I already knew the Beach Shack had a great atmosphere and the people there are fabulous as we visited the same location in late 2005; I wasn’t disappointed this time either! The Beach Shack is just that. It is a blues bar located right on the beach in Cocoa Beach FL. They have a very nice patio station where patrons may sit and admire the “eye candy” of beach goers as well as soak in the relaxing sounds of the Atlantic Ocean. I fell in love with the surf, sand, and blues sounds at the Beach Shack.

Nick Moss showboardI also have to say that the owner, Bill, has to be one of the coolest club owners I have personally met. He accommodated our every need (drinks, batteries for my camera, and a spare restroom for VIPs only.) The crowd was pretty silly and crazy but they all seemed to dig Nick and the awesome band when they played the Shack on March 4th and 5th. The band consisted of Nick Moss, Piano Willie, Bob Carter, and Gerry Hundt. Bob was a last minute fill in on drums and has toured with greats such as Muddy Waters, the Mighty Blue Kings and numerous Chicago blues legends.

Nick was wrapping up his month long tour and went all over from New York to Florida. Nick’s latest album, “Saddie Mae”, is doing quite well on blues radio charts. You can follow Nick and the guys’ whereabouts at www.nickmoss.com. The band is also going to Europe in the summer. For more info on the Beach Shack you can check out www.beachshackbar.com
