Alek Razdan & the A-Train Orchestra in Rockport tonight!

If you’ve ever heard this band, you’ll no doubt want to come tonight to hear them again, and if you’ve never heard this band, here’s your chance.  They’re playing in the Old Firehouse Trust, which is right in Dock Square in downtown Rockport, from 4 to 8pm, where they will be tearing it up with their brand of high-energy jazz.  The A-Train Orchestra will help you warm up between stops on your shopping trip throughout downtown.  The Rockport Festivals group is hosting a hot chocolate stand right next to the band, so you can have a hot drink in hand while listening to some great music.

See you there!

Annisquam Light From E.J. Lefavour

E.J. writes-

Did you know that Annisquam Harbor Light Station, formerly known as Wigwam Point (a name that stems from the long use of the point as a summer gathering place for local Indians), was first built in 1801 at a cost of $2,000 and is now one of the oldest light stations in Massachusetts; and that the little white stone house was used to store oil to light the lamp in the tower?
