The group “The Watching” might be from Nanzdietschweiler, southwest of Frankfurt in Germany, but they have good local connections when they perform at the Seafood Festival – lead singer and song writer Nicholas Adkins’ father is a familiar face around the Everglades City area.
Members of the four piece band have been making music since they were in kindergarten. The quartet has appeared at many European festivals of alternative-rock and has released an album “Open Eyes” (available on Amazon) but they really got their big start doing USO shows (Ramstein Airbase is nearby) for US military returning from deployments in Iraq and other hostile places. See their website www.the-watching.com.
The Watching will be on stage live at the Seafood Festival on Saturday, February 7, at 1:00 p.m.and again at 9:00 p.m. so come along to give them a big home-town welcome.
