Friday

 6 PM – 8:30 pm

 AUGUST 19, 2016 6:00PM In the early days, Mike played bass while Jan sang lead and played guitar. They could often be found kicking around the Boston music scene. They received airplay on several of the city’s radio stations and were nominated for a Boston Music Award in 2001. They have shared the stage with The Black Crowes, Corey Glover, Fuel, Feeder, and Hum as well as playing the Boston leg of The Vans Warped Tour. Their songs are on numerous compilations alongside the likes of G. Love and Special Sauce, Jack Johnson, Burning Spear, and The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones.

* Nine great outdoor concerts to benefit nine local non-profits.

The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation presents a series of 9 free concerts on the Meetinghouse Green at the corner of Church and Middle Street, from July 8 to September 2, 2016. The public is invited to make free-will donations to Cape Ann non-profit organizations partnered with each concert.

The family-friendly concerts begin at 6 pm. Bring a picnic, folding chairs or blankets. In case of rain, the events will take place inside the Meetinghouse (no food or drink permitted.)
