Acoustic music duo, George & Eddie banned from Bay Village

My buddy and I would bring our guitars and play at Bay Village.
We ran into the owner of the bakery who told us to play in front of his shop (on a bench outside the bakery, next to chowder place) whenever we visited, which we did.
People would always tell us how much they enjoyed the music.
Over the years, we've played the occasional private party on the island, but we really enjoyed playing in public and seeing the enjoyment in people - from the very young to the old.
On one visit, we were told by the owner of the fudge place (also owns chowder and fudge shops) that we couldn't play. We didn't know who he was- so we told him to go see Lou at the bakery.
Didn't see him again. So we continued playing for a couple of years.
This year, we were at it again in July. We were about to finish our last song and call it a nite (get some ice cream, etc.) when a couple of very young police officers told us we had to stop.
We were surprised for a minute until they told us the chowder shop owner complained.
The young officers were embarrassed. The people sitting and listening were booing but we said we understood and packed up.
if you're wondering: "Hey, what happened to those two guys who played and sang outside at Bay Village?", that's the story.
We come down on ocassion from central NJ and almost always visit the Old Tyme cigar shop when we do. If you run into us - say hello.
George & Eddie
