GMG Float To Feature Local Soundtrack For 2011 Horribles Parade- I Want To See All My Homies Shaking Their Tail Feathers!

 

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

Much Thanks To All Of Our Friends and Sponsors Including-

Help building from Bro-In Law Barry, Sista Felicia, Ed Collard, Jeremy Frost Construction and the kids.  Paulie Walnuts will be printing up the limited run t-Shirts and Greg Harris’ Briarwood Landscaping is providing us with the trailer.  Frank and Joey Ciolino are doing the truck detailing.  will Hunt is donating the PA system.

Of Course it wouldn’t be possible without sponsorship from these fantastic community minded businesses-
