Sista Felicia ~ Kay thank you for sharing your Easter Bunny Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Carrots photo with GMG!  My husband Barry and I are looking forward to another enjoyable sunset cruise on your beautiful  schooner this summer!

14 live shows ~ decks, schooners, restaurants, bars ~ music all day!

One of the best reasons to live in Gloucester is that when the weather finally turns nice, it’s outdoor music galore.  Case in point: today you can soak in music on 4 decks, a schooner, at Shalin Liu with the ocean backdrop and a dozen restaurants/bars, many on the water and/or with outside dining.  Here’s a taste of Michael O’Leary singing Celtic music on the Lannon.  Not sure if there are any tickets left for today’s music sail, but you can call 978-281-6634 and find out.

After the sail, get ready to dance & party with Boston Magazine’s Best Local Band, Three Day Threshold at the Rhumb Line tonight at 9.  Here’s a video of them at the Paradise in Boston.  Video sound isn’t great, but you get the idea (click here if you want good sound).

Having these guys in Gloucester is BIG.

Revel in this last September weekend and get ready for the Rocktober spirit

Well it’s not quite October, but beer festivals are already starting up.  Tonight Alchemy will host live music with Marina Evans and Dave Brown (normally they don’t have music on Thursdays) to help celebrate North Shore Beer Week featuring homemade brew’s from Cape Ann Brewery.  Check out her new EP and maybe you’ll want to request one of those songs.

Then you’ve got a choice of 21 artists Friday and Saturday (see schedule here)

Next Saturday (Oct 6) is the last 2012 Celtic Music Sail aboard the Lannon.  If you’ve never experienced truly acoustic music – no mics, no amps, no speakers – on a schooner in full sail, this should be on your bucket list.  (Now, I’m not suggesting that you’re not likely to make it until next summer, but why take the chance, right?)  You know you’re getting top musicianship when the wind is literally the only thing between you and the sound of voices and instruments.

(See more Michael O’Leary videos here)

Take advantage of our thriving music scene during these last few days of September, with over 30 artists performing this weekend (remember, the weekend starts tonight).  See the complete schedule of all live music in Gloucester and Cape Ann here.

Auction for 2 Tickets to Thursday’s Sail on Thomas Lannon to Benefit Cape Ann Animal Aid is over

A $130 bid early on sealed the deal. That is a lot of puppy food for the likes of pet of the week Kindle.

Kindle hopes everyone has a lovely sail tomorrow. Looks like the weather will be sunny with not a cloud in the sky. Bring your cameras and snap that sunset. (8.19PM)

The sail is from 7-9PM. Checkin starts at 6:30PM and boarding is at 6:50PM.
