Here comes the bride. From Fred Bodin

Here Comes the Bride!
I was walking down Main Street to open my gallery this morning, and saw this lovely and beaming young lady in a white gown sitting on the bench outside of the West End Salon (where Diane cuts my hair). I slowed down, turned around, and said: “You must be the bride.” I proceeded to work, and regretted not pursuing it. So I grabbed my camera and walked outside to see if she was still there. No, but shortly after the bride left with her bridesmaid heading straight for me. Again, I don’t know her and she doesn’t know me or GMG. But they were eager to be photographed. I took only one photo, and knew I had the “hero” shot. April Pelletier of Clinton (MA) was married today aboard the Essex River Queen. The lucky groom is Paul Devoe, also of Clinton. Kathy Mancini of Windham (NH) was her maid of honor.  I’ve shot hundreds of weddings, and the bride is always stunningly beautiful, as this one is. Blessings on the newlyweds and their families.

GMG Reader Has Some Nice Things to Say About the HarborWalk

Reader Dawn Puliafico writes about her recent visit to the Gloucester HarborWalk, “Hot day today!  The gardens are lovely!  We saw 2 Cabbage White, 1 American Lady, 1 Broad-Winged Skipper and 1 Clouded Sulphur.  Not much activity…still nice to see though!  We weren’t there long!  Too hot! Thanks for your advice!  We appreciate it!”

Thank you for writing Dawn.

Monarch Butterfly Nectaring at the Echinacea

Just like last Sunday, it’s worth getting up by 9am to catch “Curtain Up” on 104.9

L-R: Chris Langathianos, Chris Trapper

Just in case you haven’t noticed, North Shore 104.9’s “Curtain Up” host, Aurelia Nelson, has been inviting Cape Ann rock stars to be her guests more frequently of late and it points to a trend of featuring locals on the station as a whole (see some examples here).

Tomorrow (SUNDAY) at 9AM, she does it again, this time with Festival By The Sea producer Chris Langathianos and headliner Chris Trapper.  You’ll get a sneak preview of festival highlights and hear Chris perform.  Definitely worth getting up for — even if you stay out late at tonight’s Block Party.

And just in case you’re not quite sure which of tonight’s excellent shows to catch, here’s a list of all live music to help you decide.

Over 12 hours of music on Sunday starting at 11am.

Lots of parents take their kids to the Harbor Loop concerts and the Block Party and everybody has fun.  Tomorrow (SUNDAY) is another great chance to get the kids out to hear music with 14 live shows starting between 11am and 7pm — and excellent evening shows to follow for those who, like us, keep the kids up late.

Harbor Loop Concert Series ~ Photos of “The Honky Tonk Women of Gloucester and Tonekat from last Thursday Show. 7.18.2013

music at

Last Thursday show was so good. No rain! I could hear harmonic melodies as I made my way down Pleasant Street. The Honky Tonk Women of Gloucester opened the evening with some Doo Wop and many 60’s song hits. Tonekat took over the second half and ended with a mixture of smokin rock and blues, leaving the audience wanting more. Both bands play around Gloucester if you hear of them playing check them out. You will not be disappointed.
