“Funny how a melody sounds like a memory…” – Eric Church
It’s true. Unless you’re somehow completely disconnected from the human spirit, I think everyone has a particular type of music they enjoy. Not just because the songs may get you up and dancing (though that’s certainly enjoyable), but because certain songs seem to attach themselves to feelings or memories that seem to bubble back to the surface the moment you hit play.
Maybe you hear a little Lionel Richie and you’re immediately transported back to your wedding day, ruffled gowns and all. Shuffle up a bit of Johnny Cash and you’re remembering that great road trip with your best friends in the world. Pop in the “Dirty Dancing” soundtrack and all of the sudden, you’re back to your summer vacation at one of America’s best family resorts. Me? I hear Dashboard Confessional on my long rides home, remember that I was at one point a love-sick teenager, and just start… feeling things. I’ll leave it at that. (I’m over you now, Jenny Beckman.)
We all have that connection, and that’s sort of the reason that I think music is so important to so many of us! Whether you’re into classical, country or hip hop, there’s truly something for everybody.
For everyone that’s visited our resort, it’s no secret that music is, in our humble opinion, instrumental to a great vacation (no pun intended). It’s such a big part of bringing generations of families together. You can find it at all of our big league games like Olympics, creating a down-home ambiance during our summer cookouts, alongside the bonfires on balmy summer nights, and of course featured in our favorite trivia games like “Name That Tune.” Let us not forget all of those great nights grooving to our jams in the North Lodge with our DJs.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we’ve decided to dedicate a WHOLE MONTH of 2017 to several different types of music! We are excited to share a little bit about our “Musical March Weekends” with you today!
