Husband-and-wife team Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore started Tennis after completing a seven-month sailing voyage. Their surf-pop sound is summertime perfect, and their music is a must-have if you’re sailing the high seas. Unfortunately, you probably could’ve docked a yacht in the parking lot of the Royal Resort on the festival’s inaugural night. Having previously played Book & Stage at the Cosmopolitan, Riley and Moore were probably hoping for a bigger crowd. But Moore’s voice, which is special, carried well for the few who were there on sugary songs “Marathon,” “Cape Dory” and “Origins.” The outdoor stage, the surrounding carnival-style setup, the sound and the bands all were high quality. All that was missing was an audience. ★★★☆☆
