Weather forecasters call it a heatwave around here when it’s over 90 °F (32.2 °C) for three days in a row.
For the past 3 days, we’ve had good music starting early enough to take the kids out, so I’m declaring it a kid-friendly-music wave.
Tonight you can take the kids to see the Honky Tonk Women of Gloucester at Seaport Grille as early as 6pm. And there’s plenty more later (see schedule here) if you want to keep them up late, or you’ve got a sitter, or you don’t have kids. One of our favorites, Pete Lindberg, is at the Dog Bar at 9. Here’s a video of Pete at Celebrate Gloucester 2010:
And here’s an early 60’s heatwave classic to remind us where the inspiration for much of the music we love today comes from:
I missed Joan Osborne with Paula Cole @ Shalin Liu back in October. Did she sing this? She does an excellent version. Check this out:
This just in from Will Hunt:
Thanks to the generosity of musicians and audience, we raised over $400 for relief efforts in the Rockaways on Sunday night. Thanks also go out to the Hive and David Brooks, for providing the venue as well as the Van Ness Group, Joanne Silva, the Gloucester Times and the Beacon for helping publicize the event. Terrific musical performances were enjoyed by all. Ron Schrank, Allen and Dylan Estes, Guy Zacardi, the Satch Kerans Band, the Honky Tonk Women of Gloucester, Just Like Newman, the Gordonaires, Ed Sakurai, and finally the BFs kept things rocking until Cape Ann’s own hurricane survivor and New Orleans native Henri Smith, backed by Tucker Lindquist, Ira Levine, Janice Fullman and John Buckner, ended with a soulful and heartfelt rendition of “Wonderful World” that really drove the message home…we are all in this together.
Thanks again everyone for helping spread some love in a dangerous, but indeed wonderful world.
I don’t usually embed videos with commercials in them on GMG, but this one is worth it:
