Righteous Brother Bill Medley in Newport Beach, Wednesday 7/12, 7:00

Free, don't know about parking. Link

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and Orange County native Bill Medley returns to help Newport Beach celebrate their 100th anniversary. Although he's being billed as "Righteous Brother" (singular), he did have an okay career on his own, including "Time of My Life," featured in the film "Dirty Dancing."

The venue is the Bloomingdale's Courtyard of the Fashion Island shopping center. Free seating starts at 5:00, and will probably fill up fast.

Medley continued performing in the Righteous Brothers though until 2003, when Bobby Hatfield went to Rock & Roll Heaven. Their first single was "Little Latin Lupe Lu." I wonder if today that might offend the fine folks of Orange County.
