The concert will be Barry “The Fish” Melton’s first show at Venice Beach in over 40 years. Says Melton: “Venice! I remember going there as a kid to see the King of the Beat Generation, “Big Daddy” Nord. Venice was a the center of the counterculture in the late 50’s and early 60’s, and it has maintained a continuing counterculture tradition over all the years of my lifetime. I am delighted to be playing the Spring Fling!”

If enough local sponsors chip in, there is also a very special guitarist (from THE quintessential Venice 60’s rock band) that has agreed to perform. Contact the Spring Fling for details and to help sponsor the event!
