Wally Palmar of The Romantics

As part of the City of Clearwater’s and Ruth Eckerd Hall “On the Road” the Annual Miracle on Cleveland Street was held Saturday December 7th and featured a free concert by 80s favorite The Romantics.  Cleveland Street was converted into a Winter Wonderland with an ice skating rink, lots of carnival food, and a stage set up for the concert.  Areas near the stage were partitioned for VIP patrons, who were provided folding chairs, beverages, and Meet & Greet opportunities.

Rich Cole of The Romantics

The Romantics performed hits such as “What I Like About You”, “Talking In Your Sleep”, and even a personal favorite, “One In a Million”, as well as covers, like The Animals “We’ve Got to Get Out of This Place”.  A few women danced in the VIP area as the band played “Stone Pony” and “Rock You Up.” The consummate professionals, The Romantics put on a great show for all that attended.

The Romantics—Wally Palmar (lead vocals/guitar), Brad Elvis (drums/vocals), Mike Skill (guitar/vocals), Rich Cole (bass/vocals). All are original members except Elvis, who joined in 2004.
