Thanks, to everyone who came out to support Gloucester’s UU Church Meetinghouse Restoration last Saturday — and especially to 3rian King, Chelsea Berry, Renee Dupuis, Joe Cardoza, Brendan Burns, Meff & Dennis Monagle, who delivered a stellar performance that had the crowd swaying and singing to “All You Need Is Love!”
Next Saturday we change it up a bit and ROCK THE MEETINGHOUSE with Martha’s Vineyard-based, six-piece ENTRAIN, featuring founder/drummer Tom Major and lead singer/guitar wiz Brian Alex, for their only North Shore concert this spring. As Entrain’s conga/djembe/trombonist Sam Holmstock says, “The most important thing that we try to do with our music is bring everybody together in the spirit of peace, love, fun and a ton of drums!” Nothing more to say, really. Just watch the video (get tickets here)
You probably know this as one of Mae West’s most famous quotes and on Friday, she’ll be proven right once again. Just like our Solstice benefit at Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse, this Friday, when 3rian King, Chelsea Berry, Renee Dupuis and others come together for a fresh take on The Beatles, we’ll have so much talent on stage that you could honestly complain it’s too much of a good thing. But you won’t complain, will you? Nope. You’ll thank your lucky stars that you live in a town so full of talent that you can enjoy top quality entertainment all year long! Or, you’ll kick yourself for not getting tickets and missing the show. Which one will it be? Get tickets here.
Some of you may remember the last time I added visuals to a radio ad and made a video. Well I’ve done it again for our UU Meetinghouse benefit next Friday, April 25 featuring local stars 3rian King, Chelsea Berry, Renee Dupuis, Joe Cardoza and Dennis Monagle with Boston-based Meff and Brendan Burns, all of whom “come together” as The Number Nines for a fresh take on The Beatles.
