Kathy Gentile Roberts Art Exhibit At Local Colors

Kathy Writes-

Hi Joey ! Enjoy reading your emails daily. I know you must be very busy this weekend with all the events. I just wanted to drop you a note about an art exhibit.

The art exhibit is located at LOCAL COLORS, 121 Main St. in the window alcove. They are the paintings of Kathy Gentile Roberts, a local, watercolor artist for 20 years and a new member of the artist cooperative since November. Kathy enjoys painting local marine scenes and still life. She also uses recycled antique windows to do reverse glass paintings of sea life. Come on in to the store to view her whole gallery of paintings and original cards.

Fireworks Fund Asks For Donations

Suzanne Silveira Writes-

The Fireworks Committee is far behind in their goal to make this year’s Labor Day weekend fireworks the great show it always has been.  Thankful for donations received, they are urging those that have not contributed to do so now.  All donations, big or small, will be gratefully appreciated.  Contributions are tax deductible and can be sent to The Gloucester Fund, 45 Middle St., Gloucester, MA  01930.  Please note Fireworks Fund on your donation.

The Cape Ann Marina under the tent will host a fundraiser for the Lighted Boat Parade on Friday, August 27th from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM.  The cost for the evening is $10 and includes some great food and music.  There will be a cash bar.  The Lighted Boat Parade held the Saturday night of Labor Day weekend is such a fun event and provides great scenes on the harbor leading up to the fireworks.  This is a community happening and needs your support.  Questions for the fundraiser can be directed to 978-281-0434 

The Hoodoo Revelator is back in Town @ The Rhumb Line This Saturday night.

Hoodoo Revelator

I have known The Hoodoo Revelator  for along time now. Blues in high gear.  A few of the guys left band and became The Ten Foot Pole Cats both of these bands are  two of top favorite blues bands  to see.  Jeff Fabrizio the bass player kept this  name alive. Yes, alive and kicking. There is no way you can possibly sit still while these guys are playing. I hope you can come and check them out when they are in town. They have a new harp player Glen Asaro who you are going to love. He does Whammer Jammer to the moon.
J. Geils, Magic, Dick the whole band would be proud to hear what Glen puts out. Although they are not strictly blues they know how to ignite a crowd and get them on to the dance floor. Last time they played  people were dancing right up until closing time. It was wild.  Please be sure to set the date aside.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Joanne

Bandit Kings at the Dogbar this Friday the 13th!

Who: The scarily-sexy Bandit Kings and the ferrociously-foxy Boyfriends

What: Special live rock n roll show.

When: FRIDAY THE 13TH-The most terrifyingly awesome Friday rawk show ever….

Where: Dog Bar!

How?!: by rocking your favorite originals as well as some hott b-sides (and there may just have to be a sing-a-long as well…) and with all that foxiness in one room on one dance floor, they are more than likely to be supplying you with all the makings of the best (re:you might get lucky) Friday the 13th. ever.

ALSO

Lucky Friday the 13th just so happens to represent a couple of very important birthdays, so look for cake!
