A Coffeehouse in Rockport with an Awesome Band!

Yes, this band is indeed awesome. Not that I’m biased or anything. Of course the fact that the band is made up of my brother, niece and two nephews doesn’t influence my love for their music. Not at all, I swear (well…maybe just a bit). But it is true that I really think that anyone who digs roots music will find Daniel Dye & the Miller Road Band’s live show to be just as awesome as I do. They are playing this Thursday, March 13th at the Rockport Community House, with proceeds to benefit the work of Rockport Festivals, the group that puts together the Rockport Farmers Market, HarvestFest and Motif No.1 Day in downtown Rockport.

The Coffeehouse will feature the delicious coffee of Brothers’ Brew and give community members a chance to connect with the folks of Rockport Festivals. Opportunities to sign up to volunteer with the festivals and Farmers Market will be on hand, and we look forward to meeting up with our friends and neighbors and kicking off the spring after a long, cold, snowy winter.

Daniel Dye & the Miller Road Band are making a stop in Rockport on their Northeast mini-tour in support of their new album and feature a mix of original tunes in the style of indie-folk, Americana and roots music, playing everything from the fiddle, cello, viola, harmonica, mandolin, guitar, banjo to the melodica.
Please call me at 978-546-2861 or email rockportfestivals@gmail.com if you need any more information, and we’ll see you Thursday in Rockport!DDMRBpromoRockport SMALL

The award winning documentary Chasing Ice will be showing on Sunday, January 27th at 6pm at Cape Ann Community Cinema, as a benefit to support the marine science and environmental programs at Maritime Gloucester.

Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to gather evidence of climate change.  Using time-lapse cameras, his videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. The trailer can be found at www.chasingice.com . It has been nominated for several independent film festival awards in the documentary and cinematography categories.The movie was recently awarded Best Documentary at the 22nd Annual Awards of the Environmental Media Association and received an academy award nominee for best original song.

Cameron’s Feast

“Cameron’s Feast”, a benefit dinner organized by Henry Allen at The Annie for to support both The Annie and the Brain Candy Foundation, was a great success on Monday night.  The food was great, and the performances of song, dance, and poetry (by Henry and his friends, colleagues and students) were inspiring!

The event was held on what would have been Cameron’s birthday.  He died from brain cancer four years ago, but his courage, hope, and desire to make a difference in the world, are still alive through the “ripple effect” he has had. Henry spoke movingly about Cameron and the initiatives that were born during and after Cameron’s fight with cancer. Great things are happening thanks to Cameron!

Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Coverage on Boston TV stations

Joey,

I thought people might be interested in the clips of the Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament that ran on Boston television stations.

Here is the segment that ran on WBZ Channel 4.

Here is the segment that ran on FOX 25 TV=

The FOX clip has a nice interview with Noah from The Farm Bar & Grille. But the best part is the impromptu dance party in the same clip by my friends Heather Fraelick and Gina Briguglio. Somebody call Dancing with the Stars!

Taste of Latin America Event At The Blue Shutters Inn Benefits Ecuador Medical Relief

From the Blue Shutters Inn Blog-

por cristo shopping small

With Good Harbor Beach as a spectacular backdrop, friends of the Blue Shutters, together with friends of Por Cristo, came together on Sunday November 14 to get a "taste of Latin America" — food and wine with a South American flair, scarves and jewelry from Ecuador, and conversations with some of the folks behind the medical missions to one of neediest parts of the world. Our open house spotlighting the work of Por Cristo was a hit, with dozens of guests who came to sample some Latin American cuisine (another big thank you to Langham Hotel chef Mark Sapienza) and check out the items Por Cristo’s Medical Services Director Deborah Clark brought back from her trips to Ecuador .  All the funds raised from sale of these items goes to support the work of Por Cristo. The organization’s executive director Joe Reardon was on hand to share more background on Por Cristo’s work — and the Blue Shutters innkeepers chipped in with wines from Argentina and Chile , and some regional music. Gloucester and Good Harbor Beach may be thousands of miles from Ecuador , but for few hours on Sunday we all got a "taste of Latin America " — and, more importantly, provided some support for a very good cause. Thanks to everyone who joined us — we hope you had as much fun as we did.

Celebrate Gloucester Release Party Benefit Thursday Night

This is going to be a blast!!!!!!! I’ll be there, will you?

Peter Van Ness Writes-

Hey Joey,

Pete Lindberg, who was originally not able to play at the Celebrate Gloucester Release Party Benefit is going to be there after all.  That means you can see live performances by 6 of the stars who were at the original concert.  Plus Sam Hartson, the director, will be there.  Here’s the new poster including a great screen shot of Pete from the film.

There are still seats left, but it will likely sell out, so tell people to call 978.525.9093 to reserve a seat or go to this link: http://www.gimmesound.com/CelebrateGloucester.cfm

See you there!
