OPA Racers to Be Featured on the Rockin’ Road Grill

Former lead guitarist for A Flock of Seagulls, Eddie Berner, who hosts the “Rockin’ Road Grill” show on TCN (The Comcast Network), received the ride of a lifetime a few weeks ago while filming for an upcoming episode with a couple of well-known Offshore Powerboat Association racers.

Ed Smith and Augie Pensa enjoy watch Eddie Berner do some cooking during filming for the “Rockin’ Road Grill” show.

Also a professional chef, Berner started the reality TV series to visit places around the country in his tricked-out 38-foot RV and share the adventures with other rock stars, celebrities and athletes in their homes and/or where they perform. Of course cooking for each of his guests is a major focus of the show being that Berner has been an executive chef in high-profile restaurants across the country, including Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Orlando and his home state of New Jersey.

In early August, Berner made a stop at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, N.J., and caught up with a few offshore racers, including OPA President Ed “Smitty” Smith and Augie “The Godfather” Pensa. After getting to ride in Wazzup—Smitty’s twin-engine 38-foot Fountain Powerboats—Berner said (in the trailer above) “that was the most fun I’ve ever had with my pants on.”

The episode is scheduled to air on Sept. 6 on TCN at 8:30 p.m. EST. View the trailer above and check with your local cable provider for availability.
