WELLFLEET – This would certainly qualify as an Atlantic thrill. It started as an ordinary walk on the extraordinary beaches of Wellfleet. We walked down Cahoon Hollow Beach and heard music about a mile way.
The sun was setting. We set out walking. And when we arrived and climbed up the dune to the parking lot at Whitecrest Beach, we found the very fun and energetic Providence band, Atlantic Thrills, finishing up their set at a free concert by several bands that was going on in the parking lot.
We caught the last minute of their final song, and it was perfect, a surf song from 1964 in Peru called Demolition, written by a band called Los Saicos. A surf song at a favorite spot of Cape Cod surfers. Yes, that’s an Atlantic thrill.
Atlantic Thrills is Eric Aguiar on bass and vocals, Dan Tanner on guitar and vocals, and Mark Ferrara on drums.
