We had a fun first Nights on the Neck for 2014, in spite of some last minute cancellations by performers. Len Burgess got some wonderful shots of Three Sheets to the Wind at Trefry Park, Ernie Pigeon at Goetemann Gallery (doesn’t it look like Ernie is sitting in front of windows looking out at the water? – Gordon’s paintings are amazing), Bird Mancini performing by the Rocky Neck Accommodations, Pat Conlon and Fran Clark at the Rocky Neck Gallery. Unfortunately missing are shots of T Max at the Cultural Center.
Great shots. Thanks Len.
…and I got some photos!
The concert was almost two weeks ago, but I’ve been too busy to get the photos ready until now… I have wanted to see Gordon Bok in concert since I was a child, so it was great to finally have the chance! And “Three Sheets to the Wind” are a great group to hear and to sing with. It was a wonderful evening of music!

You suppose we could get Three Sheets To The Wind to perform this one?
thanks to Paulie for the heads up on this one
From the Beacon:
The Rocky Neck Art Colony will hold its first 2009 Nights on the Neck evening of gallery receptions and entertainment on Thursday, June 4, from 5-9 p.m.
The evening will feature:
Three Sheets to the Wind: The Schooner Adventure spawned Three Sheets to the Wind, a group of musicians and crew members who are preserving the history of maritime work songs (chanteys) and forebitter songs.
Rick Berlin: Rick Berlin sings honest narrative (sometimes funny) songs from the torn pocket of the heart. Rick’s past credits in the Boston music scene include Orchestra Luna/Luna, Berlin Airlift, Rick Berlin–The Movie, Rome is Burning, Rick Berlin-The Awful Truth, and The Shelley Winters Project.
Eoin Vincent: In November 2007, Eoin Vincent visited and photographed 18 orphanages, schools, and hospitals near Arusha, Tanzania. Vincent will give a slide show and a talk about his book (proceeds from the book will benefit charities for the people of Tanzania).
Gordon Baird: Gordon Baird will bounce around between show tunes and comedic renditions of familiar classics, tailored to a Glosta sensibility and a Rocky Neck state of mind.
Events take place on Rocky Neck Avenue, East Gloucester.
