Artist of the day: Lil Deuce Coupe
Bearing the name of the Beach Boys’ hit, Hernando County's Lil Deuce Coupe performs doo-wop and oldies, such as At the Hop, In the Still of the Night, One Fine Day and Da Doo Ron Ron.
While the band formed three years ago, the performers — Eddie Hager and Peter and Sheila Brechka (known to audiences as Peter and Sheila B) — have more than 35 years of experience each on stage. Hager performed with the Sevilles for 19 years, and more recently with Eddie and the Cruzers. Peter and Sheila B are founding members of the Belairs. All three have performed with the Casinos, known for the hit song Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye. They each were also members of the Crests (Sixteen Candles) back in the 1980s.
Lil Deuce Coupe perform at 7 p.m. Friday at the Lake House, 1202 Kenlake Ave., Spring Hill. Tickets are $12, which includes complimentary snacks. Beer and wine will be available. For information or to make a reservation, call (352) 666-4746.
