We all know this area has a ton of music talent, and SOUL REBEL PROJECT is among the best. If you love true Roots Reggae, then you already know these guys well. If you’ve never had the chance to see them live, start kicking yourself now. After you recover, go to SoulRebelProject.com and see where the next big show will be. Ok, I love these guys for many reasons, one being that they are professionals at what they do, and then there’s the fact that they’ve become good friends, and they just keep getting better every year. Today just so happens to be the iTunes album release date for HIGHER PLACE (on VP Records), and the release of their first video KING. I shot and cut this video for the guys from a live show I taped this past spring. We never intended on making any particular video that night, just grabbing some footage, but here you have it. So watch the video, please share the link, then go check out the tracks on iTunes, you will become a fan instantly. Enjoy!!! (remember click the gear at bottom right for 1080hd)

Not “property” as John Locke had written. Nope. Jefferson wrote “the pursuit of Happiness” and the Congress went along with him, even though they made many other edits, much to his chagrin. This was a truly revolutionary idea — and still is.
What’s even more revolutionary (to me anyhow) is that we celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence as our official Independence Day holiday. This is NOT a day on which we won our independence through a battle, or a war, or signed a treaty, or formed a government, or elected anybody. This is the day that our Founders defiantly declared that the Colonies were going to “dissolve the political bands” with Great Britain and become independent states. In short, this is not the day we won any independence through any means other than by saying so on paper. And it meant a certain death sentence for everyone who signed that paper, which was treason. Now that’s brave. Few people today exhibit anything close to this kind of bravery.
But back to happiness. Everybody pursues happiness in different ways. One of mine is through music. So, as promised, here’s the set list for yesterday’s award-winning GMG float featuring almost all local music. (In case you hadn’t guessed, it’s the spectacular local music that makes me happy!)
The list is in alphabetical order by song title and doesn’t necessarily represent the only good local music, just the best local music suitable for a prarade:
Big Chief – Henri Smith
Blind Knowledge – Willie Loco Alexander
Blues Brothers’ Review – Cape Ann Big Band
Fat Belly BBQ – T Max
Gloucester Till The End – Earl & Arch
Goodnight Romeo – KBMG
Let’s Get It Started – Black Eyed Peas (not local, but requested)
Harley Rider – Allen Estes
Love Light – Fly Amero
Madeline – Pete Lindberg
Not With Ya Hands – Allen Estes
On The Dark Side – John Cafferty (performing with Orleans in August)
Reap What You Sow – The Distractions (That’s me on drums)
Red Solo Cup – Toby Keith (not local, but requested)
Samsara – Inge Berge
Stand Up – Tom Hauck
Still The One – Orleans (Fly Amero’s band)
Take Another Look – Bandit Kings
Two Different Paradigms – Ned and the Big Babies
Where’d They Go – Allen Estes (Official Song of Gloucester)
Wire – Will Hunt
You Me and Mary – Chelsea Berry
The official GMG Float music set list is done — and features almost all local music (with a few non-local party songs thrown in). We’d post it here, but we’ve been sworn to secrecy! So be sure to listen when you’re at the Horribles Parade and check our post tomorrow for the complete list.
And don’t forget the FREE CONCERT on the BOULEVARD before and after the parade leading all the way up to the fireworks at 9:30 featuring The Runaround Sound!
We’ll see you there!
He’s on a roll, folks. Every week we hear a new Allen Estes song — and they keep getting better too! This gem is featured on Local Music Seen TONIGHT at 6:30 on Cape Ann TV Channel 12. Chelsea Berry is Allen’s guest on this week’s show — and she has a beautiful new song too — must be something in the air!
If case you forgot, Chelsea will be opening for Chris Isaak at North Shore Music Theatre on June 28 with her new band — and they ROCK. Imagine Chelsea’s powerful voice soaring over a rockin’ new band. This will be the first time you can see them together on a magical night in an intimate listening venue with perfect sound. Tickets are selling fast, so don’t wait until the last minute — get tickets here.
Sun’s out today. Seven shows tonight. Summer’s here in spirit. Check out the music lineup here.

Beautiful sunset at Jones River Marsh tonight. I was able to take a few pictures and meet a fun Gloucester couple.
Meet John & Colleen. They both love taking photographs, sunsets, and the local Gloucester music scene. They hadn’t heard about GMG, but I have a feeling they will be dedicated GMG readers from now on!
Allen’s special guests on Local Music Seen are his good friends JB and Fly Amero, featuring love songs from all three, plus a very funny story by JB and an Fly’s exciting announcement about Memorial Day at Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport.

From Deb Clarke,
Next Saturday is going to be a busy day for my buddy David ‘doc’ Vincent and the boys in the A Train Orchestra. You will find them in downtown Rockport on Saturday, entertaining the folk during Motif No 1 Day, in Dock Square 3-5, then later that night at the Madfish. Here’s the poster.
