Benefit for ALS at The Gloucester Elk’s Club Featuring Full Circle


Photo by Full Circle

Please join us as Full Circle kicks out the jams for this very, very worthwhile cause. Anyone who knows anything at all about this dreaded disease, knows what I’m talking about. This is a great opportunity to come out on a Saturday night, dance the evening away to some of the best classic rock you will hear anywhere on the North Shore by none other than Full Circle and help people in need while they have to deal with the effects of this deadly disease. We promise you, this will be a time to remember! We will have special guest drummer Rick Geraghty of “Scarlett” & “The Cape Ann Symphony” fame performing with us while Peter Malaquias is on another assignment. Please join us!

Dave says,

It’s a double whammy this week as  get to hang out and play not only once, but twice in a row with that  famous jongleur, former rockstar,  Gleem® spokesmodel and all-around Ipswich Idol: Mr. Orville Giddings. I’m talking about Wed. nite at Chianti’s in Beverly AND Thurday nite at the Rhumb Line. Worse, we’re being joined at the hip by my good friend and industrial tenor tooter, Mr. Mark Earley. Even better, we got our  general egg-beater Mr. Steevie Chaggaris to pound the skins. It’s gonna be a blast as we drill down deep into the bedrock and dig out the gems. So, skip your dentures appointment and hurry on down, either Wed. at Chianti’s from 7:30 to 10-30, or Thursday at the Rummie from 8 to 11. Or both. See you there!
