Cinco De Mayo in Woods Hole, Music VIDEO – Brother’s Rye & Crooked Coast

WOODS HOLE – If one were to draw up the perfect Cinco de Mayo, it would involve a three-mile sunshine-filled bike trip from Falmouth to Woods Hole on the Shining Sea Bikeway, and then alternating music sets by the bands Brothers’s Rye and Crooked Coast.

Fans of all ages attended the Cinco de Mayo festivities in Woods Hole

Following this blueprint, we found ourselves at one of the best parties on Cape Cod, where the Brother’s Rye were playing at Quick’s Hole and Crooked Coast was playing at the Landfall, each in front of an enormous, joyous all-ages crowd.

Kudos to the owners of Quick’s Hole and the Landfall for putting this together. It was as good of a party as we have seen on Cape Cod – right up there with Wellfleet Oyster Festival. 

For a taste of what happened, check out this video, with portions of songs by both bands, and few photos mixed in. Here is Brother’s Rye, playing part of an old Hank Williams song, “Jambalaya (On the Bayou),” and Crooked Coast playing part of their great original, “”Go Slow.”

You Can't Sell Right Field

– A Novel By Brian Tarcy of Cape Cod Wave

“This is a terrific read. Brian Tarcy’s style and sense of humor make it easy reading, while his subject matter is of more importance than most communities realize. If you care about growth in your community and the lack of thoughtful planning, you owe it to yourself to read this thoughtful piece of fiction that is all too real in smaller communities in our country.” YOU CAN’T SELL RIGHT FIELD, A Cape Cod Novel
