Piping Out of Summer
Revelers with musical instruments of any and all varieties are asked to gather on the Boardwalk at 5:30pm, Labor Day, September 5, in front of the Henlopen Hotel. The ensemble will then proceed to Pipe Out down the Boardwalk to the Bandstand. The historical society is providing kazoos for people without their own instruments.
Piping Out originated in the mid- to late-1950s by the late bandleader and trombonist Sammy Ferro whose orchestra played for dances held at the old Henlopen Hotel. At the last dance of the summer on Labor Day, Ferro would take his band “to the boards” followed by his audience, and then lead a spontaneous musical parade down the Boardwalk to the vicinity of Rehoboth Avenue. Join us for this blast from the past.
