Sit back and relax as Savannah’s 13th Colony Sound takes you on a musical stroll through old Savannah and Savannah Beach, as they bring back memories of how things used to be. They’ll show up at the barbershop where Dad and Junior got a trim for two bits. Sometimes Dad sang with a quartet and you guessed it – they were a barbershop quartet!
Then it’s over to the old Johnny Harris on Victory Drive. Maybe we’ll see Johnny Mercer writing another song. Mom and Dad go there every night to dance.
After lunch a baseball game beckons us to Grayson Stadium. Who doesn’t love the National Anthem before the game when all the WWII vets saluted the flag and you put your hand over your heart, stood straight and sang loud. And, of course, there’s “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at the 7th Inning stretch.
Then we all go to Tybee, or Savannah Beach, as it was known in the good ole days. As we pass through Thunderbolt, we stop by the old country church to listen to the choir practice. Finally, we make it to the beach, where we take in the old-time hits and doo wop music “Under the Boardwalk.” What a day!
