Ready... Set... GO! So our June is off to a great start. We had three awesome shows last week. The Boston Hassle show presented 4 local bands, running the gamut from ingenue Ragu to local legend Bad History Month. The following evening showcased 4 youth musicians on The All You Got Tour. On Tuesday 6/12, we held our first children's event with a sing-a-long with Kassandra Melo. Both she & the bubble machine were a big hit & we can't wait to have her back!
UP NEXT - The Seba Molnar Jazz Quartet will grace our stage on Fri. 6/22, 7-9 pm. We had a cancellation for our scheduled theatrical performance on 6/24, so this might be it for June, #sadface. But don't worry, we will be back after the Independence Day break & will be going like gang busters! We are still ironing out contracts with performers, so we will be adding another 20 or so events to the schedule as things get signed. Stay tuned to the SCHEDULE page for updates! We are looking for volunteers to help us at each event, so if you have already received that email, please complete the poll & let us know your availability. If you haven't signed up to get email alerts yet (about shows, volunteer events, etc.), please do so on the GET INVOLVED page & we will contact you.
Have a safe & happy 4th everyone!
Wow, do I have a lot to cover! So, our Grand Ribbon Cutting on 5/17/18 went great. It was great to get DCR officials & state Reps in the space, celebrating all the hard work of our volunteers. DCR Commissioner Leo Roy even sang a solo rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow!" (That takes GUTS, man. Know how hard that song is to sing?!) Anyway, head on over to our Facebook page for a video of that & more photos from the event.
The following night (5/18/18), we welcomed Brown Box Theatre Project back to the space for the Broadway Jukebox. The night was cold, but urns full of free hot coffee & cocoa kept our guests warm. Unfortunately, the second evening was rained out. But don't fret - they will be back in August with Shakespeare's As You Like It!
COMING UP THIS WEEK - we have 2 great shows. On Fri 6/8/18, Boston Hassle will present 4 great local bands: Ragu, Giving Up, Bad History Month & NEST. On Sat 6/9/18, the All You Got Tour will showcase musicians & bands ages 22 & under. Come show these kids some love & encouragement to pursue their dreams! Let's give 'em a packed house, huh?
Stay tuned to the SCHEDULE page for the most up-to-date calendar. We have about half of the dates up there so far & are adding events daily, as performers are confirmed. Bookings are a little slow this month, but will be jam packed come July on. We are psyched about the super-diverse nature of our programming. The #HerterAmp belongs to everyone! Huzzah!
