#greasegang MIKE FORGETTE: A MAN OF MANY TALENTS

Check out this first glimpse of Mike Forgette’s band Over the Bridge. Their debut EP “Something in the Water” will be released on July 16th.

“You’ve been following the boys of Over The Bridge for over a year now. You’ve seen them in action, you’ve helped them earn the chance to open for big names like Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, perform stages such as New Hampshire Hempfest & Freedom Rally, and you’ve seen their posts and pictures documenting their progress, hard work and dedication to carefully crafting their original tunes. The time has come to finally share their music with the world for all to hear!” Read more here

If you’ve met Steven, you know his enthusiasm is infections, especially for all things Fiesta. Good Luck Steven and all our #greasegang for a super fun (and no-injury walks).

BREAKING: SEINE BOAT OARSMAN TAKES OAR TO CHEST, RUSHED TO SHORE

A Coat Guard oarsman took an oar to the chest midway through the military seine boat race today at Pavilion Beach. It looked to happen at the turn. The Coast Guard (Nina) was racing alongside the Gloucester Fire Department (Pinta); the accident appeared to slow the firemen. The oarsman was rushed to shore by the Coast Guard rescue boat. At this time, no additional information available. We hope a speedy recovery for the oarsman.
