Thursday night! The Rhumb Line presents the amazing Johnny “Bluehorn” Morricone 8:30pm 8.16.2018

 

Once again shivering me timbers with his unique trumpet solos and lush voice. Guaranteed to twist up your eustachian tubes. But, wait! There’s more! Ricky “King” Russell, Boston’s most prized blooze promulgator, drops through the roof to add his two cents. As does Steve Bankuti, top notch goatskin tickler.We’ll have a blast!

Music on Meeting House Green Willie Alexander/ August 24, 2018

FROM GARAGE BAND TO THE BEAT OF ROCK ’N ROLL, WILLIE ALEXANDER AND THE PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY ORCHESTRA ROCK MEETINGHOUSE GREEN, AUGUST 24

 Gloucester-based singer/pianist Willie Alexander plays with his Persistence of Memory Orchestra at the free Gloucester Meetinghouse Summer Concert on Friday, August 24, 6 – 9 pm.

 Alexander has played and raved through more musical eras than most musicians have survived. With deep roots in ‘60s bands such as the Lost and Bagatelle, becoming a member of Lou Reed’s Velvet Underground in 1971, Alexander’s music fuses punk, rock ’n roll, jazz and blues, with hip-hop laced with techno. Together with his Persistence of Memory Orchestra, Alexander will have you hopping and jiving under the fairy lights of Meetinghouse Green. His music is zany, soulful and rocks you out of your chair. Fun for both young and old concert-goers.

 As always, the concert is free but in the spirit of giving to the community, the audience is invited to make free-will donations to the Grace Center, a local day resource center serving adults in crisis in the Cape Ann area. Breakfast and lunch are served to adults in need, Monday to Friday, at the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church.

 Bring cash or a checkbook, beach chairs or blankets. Fresh, all-natural food is provided by The Common Crow. In case of rain, the concert will be held inside the Meetinghouse. Parking is available in lots nearby and at St. Peter’s Square.

 Music on Meetinghouse Green’s sponsors include Linzee and Beth Coolidge; J.J. and Jackie Bell; Michael and Mary Bresnan; JoeAnn Hart and Gordon Baird; Harry and Mary Hintlian; Charles Nazarian; Dick and Doris Prouty; Sandra Ronan; Brent and Linda Wilkes; Tom and Kristin Zarrella; and our corporate sponsor Cape Ann Savings Bank.

Music on Meetinghouse Green

MIDDLE EASTERN BEAT MEETS WESTERN JAZZ AT GLOUCESTER MEETINGHOUSE SUMMER CONCERT, AUGUST 10

  

A high energy evening is promised for Friday, August 10, when Hye Fusion plays at the free Music on Meetinghouse Green concert, 6 pm – 9 pm, at the corner of Church and Middle Street.

 The band performs a dynamic synergy of melodies and rhythms, integrating the best of Western jazz with the beat of Middle Eastern music. Hye Fusion, an American-born trio, plays both current and traditional instruments including the doumbek – a percussive instrument commonly played throughout the Middle East – as well as the oud, classical and rhythm guitars, keyboard, clarinet, and saxophone. Their music transports us to other worlds and cultures far from Gloucester, while providing familiar rhythms and beats of jazz. A not-to-be missed concert!

 

While the concert is free, concert-goers are encouraged to make free-will donations to the Open Door, which provides emergency groceries to those in need; community meals; the Second Glance Thrift Shop; and a free mobile farmer’s market. Bring cash or a checkbook; beach chairs or blankets. Food is provided by The Causeway, a popular local seafood eatery.             In case of inclement weather the concert will be held inside the Meetinghouse. Parking is available on Meetinghouse Green, in lots nearby, and at St. Peter’s Square.

 

Music on Meetinghouse Green’s sponsors include Linzee and Beth Coolidge; J.J. and Jackie Bell; Michael and Mary Bresnan; JoeAnn Hart and Gordon Baird; Harry and Mary Hintlian; Charles Nazarian; Dick and Doris Prouty; Sandra Ronan; Brent and Linda Wilkes; and our corporate sponsor, Cape Ann Savings Bank.
