This past Saturday night a bunch of us gathered at Johnny Brown’s in Delray Beach to enjoy a little rock ‘n’ roll. Sassy Levy, an intake specialist at Sunrise Detox Lake Worth, was performing with a sober rock group called Johnny B. and the Road Dogs. JB+RD is comprised of Johnny B. on vocals, backed up by a bitchin’ trio of lead guitar, bass and drums. And, of course Sassy.
Michele and I were there, along with Sassy’s dad Ira, her mom Bobbi, brother Ross and a bevy of friends from Sunrise and elsewhere. We had a great meal (the food at Johnny Brown’s is fantastic!) and then settled in for some good ol’ R&R — and I don’t mean rest and recreation. That music kept you moving! This group does the old hard rockin’ stuff: early Bob Seger, Eagles and — of course — Skynyrd, and they put on a helluva show. Sassy’s a long, lean model type, not the sort you’d pick as a rocker, but you oughta hear that girl get down on “Sweet Home Alabama” — YEE-haw! I said that, in fact. Several times.
It was a fantastic evening. Haven’t had a good time like that in waaaaay too long.
You can have a lot of fun sober.
