The 2009 Summer Concert Series at the Antonio Gentile Bandstand in Stage Fort Park in Gloucester continues Sunday, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. with The Herb Pomeroy Tribute Concert, featuring Donna Byrne and the Herb Pomeroy Band with Greg Hopkins. The concert includes tunes from the songbook they used for many years.
This is the first time the band has played together since the bandstand concert at Stage Fort Park in August 2007, the weekend after Pomeroy’s death.
“Longtime Herb Pomeroy collaborator Donna Byrne was greatly affected by Herb’s death and she decided to retire soon after his passing,” said concert organizer David Benjamin. “Aug. 9 will be Byrne’s first public performance in quite a while and the first that Herb’s band has played together since 2007.”
The musicians are donating their fees to the Herb Pomeroy Scholarship Fund at Berklee College of Music.
