Perhaps it’s worth a trip to Beverly tomorrow to see how they do their Block Parties (info here). There are some differences between theirs and ours in Gloucester, notably that the entire area is fenced and you can walk down the street drinking a beer (or wine). Music is only on 2 stages and Gloucester’s own Henri Smith headlines the Beverly Bank Stage tomorrow, featuring Sean Jones (new, young chair of Berklee’s Brass Department) and Salem’s Henley Douglas, Jr.
Something new in Beverly for tomorrow is an AFTER PARTY at 9:30pm hosted by The Cabot featuring Beverly born comedian Dave Rattigan, an intimate New Orleans concert by Henri Smith New Orleans Friends & Flavours with Grammy-winner Amadee Castenell added to the bill along with other performers from the Block Party and a Taste of Beverly’s Best Late Night Snacks competition with food from Beverly Favorites: The Wild Horse, Gloria’s, The Indo, Freeda’s and Calibasil.
So check it all out, then come back here and tell us what you think . . .
