Jalapenos Benefit Featuring LIVE MUSIC by ColdStream May 2, 2011

Hi Joey,

My husband and I subscribe to Good Morning Gloucester – it has really helped us get acclimated to the area. Thank you! Love your pics and updates.

I am a repeat Breast Cancer 3 Day walker – I have walked the 60 miles in Boston in July of 2009 & 10 and I am now preparing for the July 2011 walk. I will be doing a benefit at Jalapenos on Monday evening, May 2. We will have live music from 6:30-9 pm by ColdStream. I was wondering if you might add this event to your live music section? As you probably know, Jalapenos donates 10% of their proceeds from these benefits, which is very generous!

Monday, May 2 – Jalapenos Benefit Featuring LIVE MUSIC by ColdStream – a 4 piece acoustic band made up of 2 guitarists, a bass player and a mandolin player. They specialize in three and four part harmonies. Their music ranges from soft rock to pop, soul, Irish, Americana, country, English folk and classic rock. They are a staple in the southern New Hampshire restaurant circuit playing to warm receptions everywhere. 6:30 – 9 pm

Thanks for any shout out you can provide. If you have other promotional ideas, please let me know!

I am wicked excited that the Monday night jam is back. If you happen to stop by you may get to hear the Bandit Kings, Inge Berge and who knows who may appear. During these jams you get some magical moments from musicians that are there to let loose with no planned agenda.

Thank you to Dan King for hosting this jam and to Fred Shrigley for making it possible.

Cape Ann Brewing ~

Chantey Night, an open Tuesday night sing featuring members of Three Sheets to the Wind, Knockabout, and other music groups from the North Shore and the Boston area, has moved from the now-closed Cameron’s to the Cape Ann Brewing Company.   The singing begins at 8:30 every Tuesday night.
For all the schooner heads this is quite a thing to see.  If you have someone coming into town and want to hear and see something very different it can be pretty cool.

Be warned though- don’t go planning a meeting or meet-up where you think you’re going to be able to carry on a conversation while they are singing.  Best to plan it for a different night at Cape Ann Brewing.

The Orleans Trio
Best known for “Dance With Me” and “Still the One,” Orleans has more than earned its place in American pop culture history, and continues to sound better than ever.  The Orleans Trio, with original members Lance and Larry (lead voice on ALL the hits) Hoppen, plus Dennis “Fly” Amero is an intimate, “unplugged” version of this prestigious and legendary group. Their vibrant harmonies, deep/broad catalog of classics and impressive NEW tunes, along with signature guitar work are proof that Orleans, in any configuration, is indeed “STILL THE ONE” and “STILL HAVIN’ FUN”! Their audience rapport,
humor, onstage chemistry and versatility make this show a favorite for lovers of all live music.
