Making other plans
The group performed an original track, “Making Other Plans,” on October 17, 2020, at East Greynold’s Park, 16700 Biscayne Blvd, North Miami Beach, FL 3316. According to Robert Hand, the song is inspired by the old saying, “Life’s what’s happening while you’re making other plans.” He and Nancy wrote the song earlier in the pandemic shutdown to express some of the desperation people were feeling. In relation to the location, the musicians cite Bettie Humphreys: “Tequesta Indians used the Oleta River, which runs along the east side of the park, as a source of transportation. In the years following, the Seminole Indians used the land
alongside the river as a trading post and a source of supplies for early Miami-Dade County settlers. The park is named after A.O. Greynolds, the head of Ojus Rock Company, who deeded the land over to Miami-Dade County Parks Department in 1936.”
