Just in case you’ve been under a rock for the past couple of weeks and don’t know that Gloucester’s biggest block party ever starts at 6 tonight, you can click here to read some posts about it.  Okay, now you know.

Celebrating Gloucester’s extraordinary music scene has become a Block Party tradition — and we do it by putting musicians and dancers on the street, right in front of our celebrated shops and restaurants.  (see schedule here)

Fly Amero ~ oil on canvas by Laureen Maher

In this spirit, Laureen Maher will be putting her series of oils on canvas, entitled “Rock Stars of Gloucester” on display at Fred Bodin’s Historic Photo Gallery at 82 Main Street, right next to the Sargent Stage (see map here) where one of the rock stars in her collection, Allen Estes, will be performing with his son Dylan.

Other Rock Stars of Gloucester on display tonight (in oil) will be JB Amero, Dave Sag, Inge Berge, Willie Alexander featured with Greg Tower and Ed Savage, Rik Razdan featured with Lisa Marie — and Fly Amero (who may appear in the flesh with his sister, Linda, at the Franklin Stage).

So dine, dance and shop under the stars tonight in Gloucester.  You’ll have more fun than you think you deserve.

New Photo Blog-“Listening with My Eyes”

I have started a photography blog dedicated to local musicians. The subtleties of music and the passion felt by the players are captured through the lens of my Nikon. As Yogi Berra said “You can observe a lot by just watching.” Click on the photo below to check out “Listening with My Eyes” .

Local Music for this Week Feb.15 – Feb. 21

Click on the picture to go to schedule.

When I started this music post, I was able to put a great deal of time into the gathering, editing, footwork that goes into a weekly update of Cape Ann’s music scene. Now I have 3 jobs, my Mom in a nursing home, and my photography getting more in demand. My good friend, Joanne Silva, has happily taken over the GMG Local Music posts for me.  She has created  “Blueslvr’s Blog” . In addition to the weekly schedule,  she has also included a growing list of links to bands and venues. If there is an ultimate music fan, Joanne is it. I appreciate her expertise and passion.

Please welcome Joanne to the GMG community. And if you have a music event you would like posted, you can leave your email address and message on the form below, and I will forward it to her.

Thanks!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Sharon
