City leaders, concerned musicians and the Gloucester Fishermen’s Athletic Assoc. have banded together to create a Battle of the Bands Weekend, Fri & Sat. April 9 & 10 at Gloucester High School Auditorium to raise money to help school sports and rebuild the crumbling bleachers at Newell Stadium so that football and other games can be played. Both events begin at 8 pm and feature the city’s top musical talent.
The Friday show is oriented more to younger bands and emcee’d by football record setter Connor Ressel, while the Sat. tilt features the cream of 7 area bands, headlined by Fly Amero, Allen Estes, Willie Alexander, The Tide and is emcee’d by the spectacular Linda Amero. Tickets are $10 for Friday and $20 for Saturday and 100% of the proceeds will go to save Gloucester sports, the stadium and cut sports fee’s for student athletes.
All parties are citizens committed to solving an immediate problem without waiting around for a cash strapped local government that can’t bail them out. For more info, email email@example.com
