Saturday To-Do: Cody Belew & the Mercers' 'Never Can Say Goodbye'

Posted By on Fri, May 6, 2011 at 11:42 AM


7 p.m., Wildwood Park. $15 adv., $20 d.o.s., $50 V.I.P.

Belew, that blue-eyed crooner/soul shouter/southern rocker/gospel wailer/country charmer/all-around musical chameleon is getting ready to pack it up and move to Nashville, Tenn., the one and only Music City, U.S.A. And after spending years as a steady-gigging staple in local clubs, he's bowing out with a big one. This concert — branded, a la "The Last Waltz," as "Never Can Say Goodbye" — also kicks off Wildwood Park's year-long "Emerging Artists" concert series, which will showcase some more of the extra-extraordinary musical talents around the state. Rodney Block and the Real Music Lovers open the night with horn-driven soul/jazz fusion.
