When Henri Smith brings New Orleans Friends & Flavours, featuring Grammy-winner Amadee Castenell to Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion on August 29, he’ll be helping to raise money for the Cape Ann YMCA — and he’ll release his new live CD recorded at The Larcom Theatre last March.
This will be Henri’s first live CD and it features stellar guests, including Grammy-winners Charles Neville and Amadee Castenell along with young, rising stars — all brought together by Henri Smith, one of the country’s premier band leaders.
Recorded and mixed by Bill Winn (whose award-winning credits include Whitney Houston and Herbie Hancock among many others), this CD is destined to become a classic — and you can get yours signed at the concert.
Henri Smith concerts have been selling out, so you probably shouldn’t procrastinate.
Get your tickets now (right here) and then you can relax the rest of the summer.
Just Announced: James Montgomery’s Celebrate Gloucester Guests
James has invited young rising stars Danielle Miraglia & Marissa Licata along with Gloucester’s own Willie Loco Alexander to join him on stage Friday night August 22 at Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion to help raise money for the Open Door.
This is James’ first appearance in Gloucester on over 2 years and he won’t be back for a while — and you can’t see him with this lineup anywhere else. So get tickets now (right here) before it’s too late.
Check out these videos of James and his guests and you’ll see why this is one summer concert you absolutely don’t want to miss!

Writing all of you fabulous Cape Ann folks to remind you that my summer show in Gloucester is coming up in 3 weeks!
We have rented the event tent at the Cape Ann Marina (at Mile Marker on 133) and the entire tent will be theater row seating with the exception of cabaret seating up front (cabaret table seats 4 and ticket price includes a bottle of Prosecco!).
Renee & Joe are opening and then I’ll do an acoustic set, followed by a full band set with Renee DuPuis on keys and backup vocals, Joe Cardoza on bass, Dennis Monagle on drums, and Brendan Burns (amazingly talented Somerville guitarist) on lead guitar.
You can buy tickets online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/709321 or in person at Mile Marker 1. Seating is general admission.
This is a one night event so if you plan to attend, please buy your tickets early! We won’t add a second show if we sell out (and I think we will)!
On a side note, I want to take the opportunity to sincerely thank you all for the support you have shown me since moving to Gloucester. Six years ago I began playing open mics at Cameron’s, the Pleasant St. Tea Company, the Rhumb Line, Dog Bar… now most of my shows are in listening rooms and out of state! I’ve worked hard to get here but there is no question in my mind that there is no way I’d be where I am in my career if it weren’t for you. The support system that Gloucester offers to musicians is something truly unique and amazing. It really is because of you that all of these wonderful opportunities have come my way… so thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Really hope to see you all on July 25!!
With support from Cape Ann Coffees, Fish City Capital, and North Shore 104.9, the show will take place on the historic Gloucester waterfront under the event tent at Cape Ann Marina’s Mile Marker One.
The band will feature some of the area’s finest musicians, including Renée Dupuis on keyboard and vocals, Dennis Monagle on drums, Joe Cardoza on bass, and Brendan Burns on guitar.
Local favorites, Renée and Joe, will perform a special opening set.
There are 2 seating options: General admission traditional concert configuration or very limited, VIP cabaret table seating for 4 guests at the front of the stage for the most intimate concert experience.
Tickets are limited, so act early to ensure your spot at what will be Cape Ann’s hottest concert of the summer.
