The Silver Spears Farewell to Quincy's "The Beachcomber"

Day 124/365

The Beachcomber club on Quincy Shore Drive is scheduled to be closing it's doors in a few weeks. This business opened in 1959 and has featured some pretty famous musicians and singers in it's day......including Louis Armstrong, Loretta Lynn, Linda Ronstadt, Rosemary Clooney, Duke Ellington, Tiny Tim, Count Basie, and Bobby Darin.

The most recent highlighter to play here are The Dropkick Murphys.

The few times that I have visited here were to see my friend Tim O'Leary's band called The Silver Spears play.

Tim and a friend began the band when he was just a young kid, and they have been a band of four members for forty years!

We had such a great time. The Beachcomber has become a true "dive". but it certainly has it's own unique character, shall we say, and it will be missed!
