Poor Upstream ... every year, they come to the Farnsworth Park concert series, and look out over a sea of empty seats.
Because everybody's dancing elbow-to-elbow in front of the stage.
For the fourth year in a row, leader Haile Blackman and his troupe brought some gotta-dance Caribbean vibe to General Farnsworth's park. The dancing started early and just got bigger as the night went on with Upstream's mix of soca, reggae, calypso, and pop tunes with island flair.
Odds are pretty good they'll come back next year. And so will we!
