Today’s Globe North Best Bets column features 4 events and the first 2 listed are in Gloucester. Here’s what they say:
Gloucester: Gloucester Stage Company closes its current season with August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Fences.” The play tells the story of a former Negro baseball leagues star working as a garbage man in Pittsburgh in 1957. Thursday through Sept. 7. $35, $40. Gorton Theatre, 267 East Main St. 978-281-4433, www.gloucesterstage.com .
Gloucester: The Celebrate Gloucester Benefit Concert Series presents blues artist James Montgomery, joined by Danielle Miraglia, Marissa Licata, Sax Attax Horns, and Willie Loco Alexander. Friday, 8 p.m. $25-$55. A portion of proceeds will go to The Open Door food pantry. Waterfront Pavilion, Cape Ann Marina, 75 Essex Ave. www.gimmelive.tv
Looks like the editors of the Boston Globe know where to go for top entertainment north of Boston.
Aren’t you glad you live here?
Every ticket gets you a seat in the giant tent at Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion. It will be a long time before you can see blues legend James Montgomery with his full band PLUS a horn section. And don’t forget about his special guests Danielle Miraglia, Marissa Licata (who recently toured with Jethro Tull) and Gloucester’s favorite music icon, Willie Loco Alexander. Plus you’ll be supporting The Open Door — having fun & doing good. You can’t get better than that! Get your seats today before they sell out!
Just Announced: James Montgomery’s Celebrate Gloucester Guests
James has invited young rising stars Danielle Miraglia & Marissa Licata along with Gloucester’s own Willie Loco Alexander to join him on stage Friday night August 22 at Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion to help raise money for the Open Door.
This is James’ first appearance in Gloucester on over 2 years and he won’t be back for a while — and you can’t see him with this lineup anywhere else. So get tickets now (right here) before it’s too late.
Check out these videos of James and his guests and you’ll see why this is one summer concert you absolutely don’t want to miss!
