THE MENTALIST & REGGAE FEST – Time to think about what you’re doing Thanksgiving Weekend

While we don’t ordinarily plan ahead that much, Thanksgiving weekend is one notable exception.  That’s because if you don’t plan ahead, you’re often left with just a couple of lousy choices.  Here are two very different (ALL AGES) entertainment options that will likely both sell out by Thanksgiving:

Ever wonder who’s the REAL MENTALIST?

The character of “The Mentalist” (portrayed by Simon Baker in the hit CBS TV series) was inspired by Jon Stetson, who was a consultant on the show.  He’s entertained five U.S. Presidents, The King of Sweden, The Royal Family of Monaco, and appeared on several major Television Networks (CBS, NBC, PBS, A&E and more).  On Black Friday (Nov 25), You can see him LIVE right down the road at The Larcom in Beverly.  It’s the perfect way to laugh off the pounds you put on the day before — and be amazed by his sleight-of-mind!  Check him out in this video:

Then on Saturday Nov 26 you can be part of the first North Shore Reggae Fest featuring Warrior King & the Rootz Warriors, who are making their first East Coast U.S. appearance in NINE YEARS with local favorite Mamadou Diop and his band with Rockport’s Jake Pardee on guitar!  Gloucester’s DJ’s Lion Pride Sound opens the show with top spins from roots, rockers, lovers rock ska, and dancehall.  Check out Warrior King in this video:

It was a great night of music at the first Habor Loop Concert Series July 10, 2014~ Mamadou and The Jake Pardee Band

Beautiful evening, filled with expressive dancing, happy children, blues and world fusion music. The Jake Pardee band invited a special guest Dierdra Darrha to share her talent. She was very sweet performing a country kind of song.  I believe the crowd was pleased. Many thanks to Bradley Royds all the sponsors that make this event possible. Especially the sound guys Frank Hawks and John Silveira. Looking forward to the next one.
