The upbeat Berkshire County classic rock/dance band Full Burn kicked off the 2023 season of " Sounds of Summer" at the Great Barrington V.F.W. on Tuesday evening. Unlike last year's kickoff rain didn't put a roadblock in the show. The weather was beautiful and the band delivered in spades as they cranked out classic tunes by "Huey Lewis and the News," "Donnie Iris," "Steve Miller Band," "Wang Chung," a "Led Zeppelin" medley and much more. It was an excellent way to begin this year's concert series.
