SBP Playlist: End of Summer Jams for Your Labor Day Weekend Festivities

Tacos & Tequila


As summer’s sun-soaked days make their final curtain call, we’re gearing up to give it a sendoff like no other — and what’s a proper farewell without the perfect playlist? Imagine this: you and your favorite people, burgers and dogs on the grill, and a backdrop of tracks (new and classic, of course) that set the tone for good vibes only. Whether you’re hanging at the beach or hitting the road this Labor Day weekend, our team lined up a playlist that’s as unforgettable as our favorite summer memories (and dance moves). Press play and be the master of the aux cord this weekend.

F. Ron Smith

Favorite Summer ‘23 Song: “Amy” by Elton John. I know it’s an oldie, but whenever I hear it, I think of the fabulous summer road trips I’ve taken (and will continue to take) with Tracy, and it makes me smile. Oh, and “Summer of ‘69” by Brian Adams. A Canadian classic rocker. I’m forced to turn up the volume every time.

Favorite Summer ‘23 Moment: I was fortunate to play golf at some beautiful courses, including Aviara and Monarch in California with their dead-on ocean views, and at Arrowhead in Colorado with its insane, continuous view of the Red Rocks. Epic.
