For all you proud Americans, this is another video I just completed for STIHL. I always enjoy working with everyone at this amazing company, but getting a chance to put Real-STIHL factory workers into this project was truly special. Even if you have never owned a chainsaw, or know what an American built STIHL product looks like, you’ll enjoy this! (click the gear on lower right for HD video)
Once again, the Gloucester Fund and gimmesound.com present a FREE CONCERT ON GLOUCESTER HARBOR featuring Cape Ann Big Band and Gloucester’s #1 Party band Runaround Sound, plus we have some surprise featured vocalists TBA.
Ringo Tarr, Gloucester’s hardest working behind-the-scenes organizer, has done it again. He’s bringing his stage to the Boulevard for a rousing celebration of our independence through music, parade, fireworks and one of the most powerful laser light shows in New England– Best of all, it’s all FREE thanks to Ringo’s hard work and the musicians’ generous spirit.
Here’s the schedule:
5:00 Music Begins (band TBA)
6:00 Music breaks for Horribles Parade
7:00 Cape Ann Big Band & Runaround after parade
9:30 Fireworks over Gloucester Harbor
10:00 Spectacular LASER LIGHT SHOW by RK Lighting Design
Then dance with Runaround under the stars & the lasers.
There’s nothing like dancing on the Boulevard to the Runaround Sound with RK’s lasers overhead. DON’T MISS IT! Here’s a video of Runaround at Capt. Carlos.
Photos taken of the fireworks last night, from my perch on the roof of the rectory:
Special thanks and prayers for all the men and women who have served their country to help protect and defend our freedom!
Besides the fireworks, what a beautiful moon we had last night…
