It’s all about the music – Video from July 3 Free Concert on the Boulevard

Last night, July 3, 2014, was the 7th anniversary of the annual Runaround Sound Extravaganza, a free concert on the Boulevard after the Horribles parade.  Last night we had the biggest crowd of the past 7 years even though there were no fireworks.  It really is all about the music.  Check out the finale.

All I can say is that I’m honored to live in the City that brought us the tremendously talented Carlos Menezes, Jr., who, along with some of Gloucester’s best musicians perform this show for free every year – and Ringo Tarr, who, along with his team, do more work behind the scenes in one day than many people do in a month.

  • Awesome show!! Kudos to all involved and for pulling it off just before the lightning!!

  • Thanks, Jenn. Yes, Lightning is bad for musicians standing at a mic. Rule #1 of concert promotion: Don’t kill the artist!

    We got a little wet during breakdown, but luckily we got all the instruments either under tents or in cases just before the skies opened up.
