Free Concert on the Boulevard From The Gloucester Fund and GimmeSound July 3rd

Posted on June 27, 2011 by Joey C

Dear Joey,

Ringo Tarr is at it again!  Vickie and I are working with him to present a FREE CONCERT ON THE BOULEVARD on July 3rd with a twist: YOU GET TO COUNT DOWN TO THE FIREWORKS — but only if you’re there.  See details below:

The Gloucester Fund and present a Free Concert on the Boulevard (near the Blynman drawbridge at the corner of Centennial Ave.) on Sunday July 3 starting at 5pm.
5:00 – Henri Smith New Orleans Friends & Flavours kick off the fun.
6:00 – Horribles Parade passes right down the Boulevard.
7:00 – Henri Smith is back immediately after the parade

7:30 – The Runaround.  Gloucester’s favorite high-energy band featuring ska, reggae, soul and more.

The Boulevard crowd will count down to the fireworks.  Be there and make your voice heard all the way across the harbor.

10:00 – Dance to the high energy Runaround with a special Jazz Fest Style Climax!

There’s no better way to celebrate our independence than with music, dancing and fireworks.

See you there!

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.
