Win tickets to see Allen Estes Band & Fabulous Mustangs at Beverly’s Historic Larcom Theatre

Allen_PosterI know.  You think you can wait until the last minute to get tickets for the Allen Estes Band at the Larcom Theatre next Saturday, October 5th.  And even though you know you don’t want to miss this concert because it’s one night only — and because Allen will have a brand new band featuring multi-platinum guitarist David Brown, Fairport Convention founder Dave Mattacks on drums, Matt Leavenworth on fiddle, Steve Burke on keyboards and Wolf Ginandes on Bass. You also want to be the first to hear Allen’s newest music. And when you see Allen Estes singing his Howard Blackburn hit “Not With Ya Hands” on next season’s Wicked Tuna TV premiere, you want to be able to say you danced in the aisles as Allen sang and played that memorable song with his new band in October.

And you want to be able to see South Shore sensation Dave Foley and his Fabulous Mustangs open for Allen (Foley opened for REO Speedwagon at the Melody Tent this summer to rave reviews) because you’ve got no intention of driving to Plymouth any time soon.

But you’ll still wait to get tickets because you think that maybe, just maybe, you can win them.  Well you’re right, but only for another couple of days.  Here’s how:

Like our gimmesound page on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/gimmesound).  Then comment on the HUMP DAY post with the picture of the Allen Estes Band poster in it.  We’ll pick a winner tomorrow morning.

Listen to North Shore 104.9 tomorrow morning.  They will be giving away tickets before noon.

You should also know that, unlike our sold-out April concert at the Larcom Theatre, all of our concerts in this Fall Series have reserved seats.  So if you get your tickets now, you’ll be assured of the best seats.  You can even get a discount subscription with premium seating to all three concerts for only $99.  But those great seats won’t last long, so don’t wait until the last minute.

Now for some sad news.  The great Doc Watson died yesterday.  His playing influenced a generation of guitarists, including one of Gloucester’s best, Allen Estes, who knew both Doc and his late son Merle.   I saw Doc with other greats including Bill Monroe several times in Bean Blossom Indiana in the 70s.  Here’s a video of Doc with Earl Scruggs, Ricky Skaggs & Alison Krauss.  Enjoy!

There are plenty of choices for live music tonight and many of them might be willing to play a Doc Watson tune if you request it.  See full music lineup here.
