Music on the Meetinghouse Green
Classic Rock from The Bar Chords at third Gloucester Meetinghouse Summer Concert, July 20, 2018
Put on your dancing shoes and prepare for a trip down memory lane presented by The Bar Chords, at the third free Gloucester Meetinghouse Summer Concert, July 20, 6 – 9 pm, at the corner of Church and Middle Street.
Young and old will groove to the beat of classic rock of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s performed by the band’s vocalists and harmonica, acoustic and electric guitar players. Rock to the iconic rhythms of The Beatles, The Eagles, The Rolling Stones, The Barenaked Ladies, and so much more. Lead vocalist Frank Reaney, who started the band in 2013 as a way to bring back the great memories of a bygone era, said, “Every song we play is the one you’ve wanted to hear live, yet most bands playing music from this era don’t play, won’t play or can’t play.”
The concert is free. In order to give back to the community, concert-goers are encouraged to make free-will donations to Maritime Gloucester, a non-profit organization seeking to inspire students and visitors to value marine science, maritime heritage, and environmental stewardship through hands-on education and experiences. Bring cash or a checkbook, beach chairs or blankets. Fresh food is provided by Willow Rest, a foodies mecca on the Annisquam/Riverdale side of Cape Ann. In case of rain the concert will be held inside the Meetinghouse. Parking is available on Meetinghouse Green, in lots nearby, and at St. Peter’s Square.
