"Only shooting stars break the mold."

Went out to Arts Beats & Eats in Royal Oak Labor Day weekend hoping for a long evening of music but Eddie Money's set got cancelled because of a tremendous downpour that wouldn't let up.

We did, however, catch Smash Mouth's set which ended up being highly entertaining as lead vocalist, Steve Harwell kept up a hilarious interplay with the crowd.

At one point he stopped the show asking that the people outside of the V.I.P. area be let in and when his call was not answered he threatened to cancel the show but after talking to one of the security guys he compromised as he invited a number of fans up on stage with the band for a couple of songs.

At times his vocals were a bit off key but for the most part it was a fun, lively set that kept the party-vibe going and had the crowd energized.
