Thank you Goddess Family for the invitation to come see Tony and Samantha’s super fun Musical Morning at Cape Ann Preschool. Dancing, singing, and with Tony allowing the children to strum his guitar, a wonderful time was had by all!
Many in the community are familiar with Cape Ann Preschool (formerly Lanesville Preschool), but if not, they are located just off Washington Street on Gloucester Avenue, soon to be relocating to 488 Essex Avenue beginning in August. Cape Ann Preschool is a play-based preschool program and, according to their website blend academic school readiness, social skills, and developmentally appropriate learning for children ages 2.9 -6. For more information, visit the Cape Ann Preschool website here.

Last month I pointed out that The Noise Magazine recommended two Gloucester shows for the week of Oct 22, putting us on par with Cambridge (see post here). Well there’s a new Noise issue out and this week they recommend a Rockport show (see here) specifically Amy Black with Megan Burtt at the Old Sloop Coffeehouse. Congrats Amy Black, Megan Burtt, Old Sloop (tickets here) and Rockport! Oh, and I guess I have to congratulate myself on being right again. I picked this show in this post . Here are two more videos from these rising stars, just in case you weren’t convinced by the ones I posted last week.
More Megan Burtt videos here.
Now for tonight, there’s a special treat at Minglewood: Tony & Samantha Goddess will share the stage with KBMG. You don’t get to see all these talented artists sharing the stage very often so take advantage.

Samantha, Franny, and Tony doing fine and having the time of their lives!
Last night we caught the end of The Goddesses’ set at Giuseppe’s. It’s open mic every Wednesday night at Giuseppe’s from 7:30- 10:30. Tony and Sam sound beautiful together and played a variety of fun, funny, and upbeat love songs. I hope to hear more from this rockin’ duo!
Use the GMG search box for more information about Tony and Sam and Tony’s recording studio, Bang a Song, located in downtown Gloucester.
Because Even Our Rock and Roll Buddies Still Think Of Us When They Are Overseas To Play Stadiums!
Love It!!! ROCK ON GODDESSES!!!!
As requested, Tony and I made the rounds of Fenway before the Jenny Dee set with GMG in full effect. We got some great ones from before the show and before sound check, and a couple from on the floor during the Geils set (look at him preening in the JumboTron in the background!). The show really went off without a hitch, and we had a hell of a time!
Chickity Check It!
Thanks for everything! More pictures from the actual set/performance to come (when we get ’em)!
Samantha & Tony
Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents
Don’t forget us little people now that you guys have gone big time!
Go see them play free tonight before they BLOW UP HUGE!
They will be rocking Harbor Loop as part of the Thursday Night Harbor Loop Concert Series tonight Thursday!
Glad I ran into you yesterday. So what should we do?
— I gotta get a GMG sticker in case Sam and I can snap a pic from the stage in front of the fans. Or maybe just backstage with Wolf!
–We’ll be at Harbor Loop today so any coverage would be great. We’re gonna run our Fenway set at the top of our second set tonight.
–I’ll be around on Friday in case you want to hook up before the show on Sat. We’re gigging a festival in Bethlehem, PA on Sunday and driving back Monday. Will be around Tuesday if you want to do some kind of wrap up or maybe I’ll have a souvenir or something.
I think that’s it. Next local gig on the books is the Rhumbline Oct. 9th though there’s a chance of Celebrate Gloucester over Labor Day weekend.
Here’s a link to the first announcement of our potential Fenway slot in the Globe and well, the rest is history…..
Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents: “Big Ol’ Heart”
Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents with La La Brooks: “Da Doo Ron Ron”
Hope you enjoy, and maybe we’ll see you tonight!
