Sarah Burrill Band, “Don’t Stop Believing” or “The Anthem” – Music VIDEO

PROVINCETOWN – On the most touristy night of the year in Provincetown, the night of the Carnival parade, the Sarah Burrill Band played that song. You know, the one about those two kids on a midnight train going anywhere.

Though Burill has original music, her Carnival gig at Waydowntown, with the audience in her hands, was not exactly the time for Cape Cod Wave to request an original tune. Instead, we got on that train with the small town girl and that city boy born and raised in South Detroit.

And no, Cape Cod Wave is not pivoting to videos of cover bands. We are still interested almost exclusively in original music by Cape Cod bands. This was a moment in time.

Introduced as “the anthem” with Kami Lyle jumping in bunny ears behind Burrill in the first seconds of the song, we were lured right into that world that goes on and on and on …

Plus, the band is great, and, frankly, we should have done a video of the fun, charismatic Sarah Burrill a long time ago. 

Someday soon, we hope, we’ll get a video of an original song from this impressive band of Burrill on guitar and vocals, Kami Lyle on trumpet, Joseph Hoyt on drums, Randy Frost on guitar and Susan Goldberg on bass.

Meanwhile, enjoy this great version of “the anthem” from the night of Carnival. 

(As a side note, once upon a time I was a valet parking attendant at a venue that hosted a lot of weddings. We always knew that our night was almost over when the band played this song. So I have heard this done approximately one billion times by one million cover bands. This is my favorite version ever…)

  • Brian, thanks so much for this one. Sarah played “The Anthem” at Harvest Gallery Wine Bar last weekend, but Kami was ill and didn’t make the gig. Her trumpet was missed. This version is the bomb. We’re huge Sarah Burrill fans (and Kami, too). We’ll look forward to that original music video.
    P.S. – We have a pet name for Sarah – “THE Genuine Article”, and my husband’s comment “Sarah B. kicks the s— out of cool!’ As for Kami, she’s what we call “a party in a box”.
