The Counting Crows raced their way into fans hearts on the seaside stage at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Racetrack summer concert series show on August 9, 2014.

“Lean on Me” by American singer-songwriter Bill Withers started off the night as they took the stage. As Lean on Me faded out, the band filled in kicking off the show with a fan and my personal favorite, “Sullivan Street.” Lead singer, Adam Duritz remained upstage throughout the nearly 2 minute intro but gave it his all for the rest of the night.

The 1990s band can still draw a large crowd of fans. The cutest was a little girl sitting on top of daddy’s shoulders shimmying to the music. A couple parents near the back of the large audience had a baby in a pram stroller. My guess it was a fun filled afternoon and extended night out for the newborns’ parents. A day filled by surf and turf horse racing, betting, wide brimmed hats, and a nice night of music.
