Fun, French, and Flirty is belle + me’s tagline and their vibrant Spring/Summer collection was all that and more! Photos from Friday’s opening ~
EJ writes, “Created by Anne Malvaux and Lisa LeVasseur, belle + me is a French-inspired line of cool scarves and cooler jewelry. Their hand-made pendants are one of a kind and they use “repurposed” metal, beads, and fabric when possible. These pendants are designed to be worn on their unique line of scarves, in a multitude of colors and designs.”
Anne and her family are so photogenic and it was lots of fun taking snapshots. Best of luck with belle + me Lisa and Anne!
Perhaps you saw him at the UU Meetinghouse Solstice concert in December. If you did, you already know he’s one of Gloucester’s finest musicians. If you’ve never seen Ken Bonfield, this is the weekend to do so. And the Rocky Neck Cultural Center is a perfect venue for his Artistry of the Guitar.
This just in from Gordo!

DANCE PARTY! Come hear the hot, groovy sounds of 1960s Latin Bugalu from Boston-based Lookie Lookie, Friday June 28, 7-10 at the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, $10. Some of Boston’s best musicians and a groove guaranteed to make you smile!
In fact, the band is named for an early Richie Ray hit, “Lookie Lookie,” which encapsulates some of the pan-American fusion that went into Bugalu.
Lookie Lookie is an all-star lineup: Scott Getchell, trumpet; Ken Field, alto sax; Russ Gershon, tenor sax; Chris Maclachlan, bass; Rick Barry and Vicente Lebron, percussion. Collectively this hoary crew is in some way responsibile for the Either/Orchestra, the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, Bim Ska La Bim, Agachiko, Willie Alexander’s Persistence of Memory Orchestra and other top Boston bands.
Band godfather Vicente Lebron has played with many members of Ricardo’s Ray and Joe Cuba’s band over a long and storied career, beginning in New York in 1971. Since moving to Boston in 1974, he has been a mainstay of the Latin music community, as a player on the jazz scene with bands like the Either/Orchestra and Club D’Elf.
Lookie Lookie has the amazing ability to put a smile on the face of just about everybody, no matter what their musical taste. And, it’s easy and fun to dance to – you don’t have to know any fancy steps, the rhythm will take you away.

JoeAnn Hart’s book release party at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center was a whopping success. So many congratulations JoeAnn!!! There are few things more monumental than publishing a book with a publishing house, especially in light of the ease in which books are self-published today. I purchased my copy of Float Friday night and haven’t put it down. See GMG tomorrow for an excerpt from Float.
