Sista Felicia continues her assault on the budget and promises and over-the-top float this year! It better be, she keeps coming back to me to hit up the wallet.
Title Sponsor Peter Van Ness Writes-
You asked for it. You got it. Music. The best independent music north of Boston will be blasting from the GMG Float on July 3 thanks to Will Hunt (Celebrate Gloucester sound man, who is donating the PA) and all the extraordinary musicians who live here.
We’ve put together the Ultimate Gloucester Area Playlist with music from 2 dozen local artists on gimmesound.com. ALL THE MUSIC IS LOCAL, INDEPENDENT MUSIC! Best if all, IT’S EXCELLENT MUSIC. Rock, pop, blues, soul, indie, jazz, country, celtic, ska, folk, reggae, americana, and more!
What better way to celebrate our independence than with independent music from Gloucester, which is becoming known to have one of the most vibrant music scenes in the US — Austin of the Northeast!
You wanted music, Joey, and you got it.
Here’s a list of some of the local musicians who you’ll hear from the GMG float (alphabetical by First Name — expect a few surprises too):
Allen Estes, Bandit Kings, Bingo Fridays, Chelsea Berry, Dan King, Earl & Arch, Erinn Brown, Everybody’s Neil, Fly Amero, Gary Shane, Henri Smith, Hoodoo Revelator, Inge Berge, Karen Ristuben, Lisa Landy, Michael O’Leary, Mile 21, Pete Lindberg, Runaround Sound, Satch Kerans, Tod Ellyson, Tony Hilliard, Will Hunt, Willie Alexander
