Todd & Barbi Warming Up Redlands for Christmas Parade, Weather Permitting

If the rain holds off, the Redlands Christmas Parade will start at 6 p.m. with more than 120 entries, including floats, bands, classic cars and others, according to the City of Redlands.

Musical duo Todd & Barbi were playing "You'll Lose a Good Thing" and other classics Saturday morning in Ed Hales Park, with one eye on the weather.

The married couple from Highland were part of the buildup to the scheduled Redlands Christmas Parade in downtown Redlands, which is scheduled to start at 6 p.m.

The rain chance Saturday afternoon and evening for the Redlands area was estimated at 30 percent, according to a National Weather Service update just before noon Dec. 1.

"You'll Lose a Good Thing" was written by rhythm-and-blues legend Barbara Lynn of Beaumont, Texas, which reached the top 10 in 1962 pop charts as well as number one on R&B charts, according to music historians.

"She had class," Barbi said during a brief break Saturday. "She dressed in white and played a mean lead guitar."

"A white Stratocaster," Todd said.

Tood & Barbi say their favorites range from Elvis Presley to Patty Loveless, the Beatles to the Dixie Chicks. They planned to be in Ed Hales Park until 1 p.m.

At 2 p.m. Dec. 1, the Memoirs will take the stage, performing "music from the greatest generation," according to a city announcement.

If the rain holds off, the Redlands Christmas Parade will start at 6 p.m. with more than 120 entries, including floats, bands, classic cars and others, according to the City of Redlands.

"This year's parade theme celebrates the City's 125th Anniversary, marking the kick off of the yearlong Quasquicentennial celebration," Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said.

Todd & Barbi have a show scheduled at 2 p.m. next Saturday Dec. 8 at Jerry L Pettis Memorial VA Medical Center of Loma Linda, Todd said.
