Music on the Meetinghouse Green – The Goddnesses

LOCAL GROUP, THE GODDESSSES, ROCK AND ROLLS
July 26 free rock concert on Meetinghouse Green

If you love music that makes you dance, and harmonies that make you sing, come to the fourth free concert of Cape-Ann-grown rock and roll band, The Goddesses, at Meetinghouse Green, on Friday, July 26, 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM.

 Cape Anner, Tony Goddess, (and yes, Goddess is his real name), has boogied with the best of Gloucester’s rock and rollers, was a member of the Gloucester/Somerville band, Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents, as well as world-renowned indie-rock band pApAs fritAs, who made two of their three records in West Gloucester. He is also proprietor of the Rogers St recording studio ‘Bang-a-Song’. Tony’s wife, vocalist Samantha Goddess, is recognized for her wonderful voice as well as being the tallest member of Jenny Dee. Bassist Dave “Sag” Saginario plays Thursday nights at the Rhumb Line, and is bass chair of the band ‘Madhouse’. Keyboardist John Cameron performs regularly with Saginario. Drummer Steve Chaggaris, the only non-Cape Ann resident of The Goddesses, has played gigs throughout Cape Ann, including with the Orville Giddings Group and The Soul Band.

The Goddesses’ musical influences hail directly from American rock ‘n roll, but with regional twists from New Orleans, Austin, Texas, Memphis, Tennessee, and even from Gloucester, MA.

Each week Music on Meetinghouse Green partners with a different non-profit organization to raise awareness for the services they provide to the local community. At the July 26 concert, the audience is invited to contribute to a freewill donation to Art Haven, a non-profit community organization providing art classes for adults and children in Cape Ann.  Willow Rest will provide delicious food for concert-goers.

 The Gloucester Meetinghouse, home of the Unitarian Universalist Church, is located at the corner of Church and Middle Streets. The concert is handicapped accessible. Event parking is available on the green and at additional parking lots nearby in the Historic District. Folding chairs will be provided or bring your own beach chair or blanket.

 The entrancing music of the Middle East is integrated with Western Jazz standards by the American-born band, Hye Fusion, at the third free concert on Meetinghouse Green, on Friday, July 19, 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM.

 Enjoy the dynamic synergy of melodies and rhythms of this unique band, who play both current and traditional instruments. Hye Fusion’s love for integrating Middle Eastern music with jazz comes from their family lineages, from musical training at the New England Conservatory as well as from musical mentors such as Oscar Peterson  and Bill Evans. Mal Barsamian is renowned for his oud playing, classical and rhythm guitars as well as clarinet and saxophone. Harry Bedrossian is also a highly accomplished oudist as well as a classical concert pianist, with expertise in Middle Eastern modal tonality. And Charles Dermenjian plays percussion, featuring the doumbek, the most commonly played percussive instrument of the Middle East. The band successfully blends ethnic Middle Eastern rhythms with standard and creative Western Jazz music, making an unforgettable evening of musical enjoyment.

 Each week Music on Meetinghouse Green partners with a different non-profit organization to raise awareness for the services they provide to the local community. At the July 19 concert, the audience is invited to contribute to a freewill donation for the Open Door, a non-profit whose mission is to alleviate the impact of hunger in our community. Markouk will provide delectable Middle Eastern food for concert-goers.
