Cabarets Continued from page 1 restaurants. The legislation, spon- sored by Representative Roger Roy (R-Limestone Hills) and Sen- ator Steve Amick (R-Newark) would allow a business to discon- tinue serving complete meals after 9 p.m. and would require the ex- clusion of underage patrons after that time. Entertainment can be provided. "It is imperative that we react quickly and strongly to a piece of legislation that could dra- matically change restaurants into "bars" in our towns," said the ACT agenda prepared by ACT President Bob Frederick. "This comes up every year,, said Bethany Beach Mayor Charles Bartlett. Rehoboth Beach City Manager Greg Ferrese sug- gested writing to MADD (Moth- ers Against Drunk Drivers) to see if they would also oppose the leg- islation. But Chip Hearn, the pres- ident of the Delaware Restaurant Association and a well known lo- cal restauranteur, said that cabarets help eliminate underage drinking by excluding minors. He said they are a way for a business to be flexible and to meet often changing customer demands: He said that restaurants must be able to meet customer and market de- mands and can not remain static. " the reality of how restaurants operate." Hearn doesn't think the legislation, even if it passes, will have much impact on Sussex be- cause many coastal towns have al- ready taken action to. regulate cabarets. Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach and Bethany Beach are among those towns. Frederick, who is also the mayor of Dewey Beach, said that a cabaret is too flexible and allows too much dis- cretion for businesses. "You can dramatically change the personali- ty [of your business] and it doesn't seem fair...You might as well do away with the restaurant license." While he agrees it would not have much impact on Dewey Beach because of Dewey's cabaret ordinances, he thinks oth- er areas could be dramatically im- pacted.

"We're talking to com- panies on both sides of the bay and of course we will be selling tickets on both sides of the bay." He said a separate tax entity has been set up so that all of the funds from the show can benefit the hos- pitals. "You'll be seeing plenty more about this concert between now and July fifth," said Sharp. "We want to get the word out as far and wide as possible to make it a real SUCCESS." The Beach Boys are one of the most popular American bands of the rock and roll era. They formed in 1961 in Hawthorne, California around the three Wil- son brothers - Brian, Dennis, and Carl - and their cousin, Mike Love, and friend AI Jardine. From the start, according to the All Music Guide To Rock, "the focus of the group's music was Brian Wilson, who combined a fascination with vocal harmony in the Four Freshmen mold with a love of Chuck Berry-derived rock and roll. Added to that was the subject matter of middle-class teenage life in southern California - surfing, cars, and girls." Some of the popular songs of the Beach Boys include their fwst hit single, "Surfin' Safari" (1962) and a steady string of other hits such as "Surfin' USA," "Surfer Girl," "Fun, Fun, Fun," "When I Grow Up To Be A Man," "Help Me Rhonda," California Girls," and "Sloop John B." Although Dennis Wilson died in 1983, the group has continued to record and tour over. the years. Sharp said more details about the concert will be coming in the weeks ahead.
