July 11 – The Paul Rodriguez Band – (http://www.paulrodriguezband.com)

Paul Rodriguez started this band with the premise that he would play all those songs they’ve always wanted to play but never made it to the playlist of all the bands with which they’ve played. They’re not out to make it big, just wanted to play the songs they like. They’ve found out something very interesting along the way – a lot of people like the songs they like!

You’ll hear songs by Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Sheryl Crow and Ed Sheeran. Have a suggestion for us? Let them know and they might just play it.

 

July 18 – The Love Dogs – (http://www.thelovedogs.com)

Take one red-hot horn section – we’re talkin’ alto, tenor, baritone saxes and trombone – down and dirty. Add liberal amounts of barrelhouse boogie-woogie piano and stinging Fender guitar. Pour over a funky and swinging rhythm section that Blues Review magazine called “the best in the business”, and top it all off with a crazy and charismatic front man with one of the biggest blues voices around. Season with a few years on the road tearing up juke joints, festivals and concert halls across the U.S. and Canada and on both sides of the Atlantic. Sound tasty? It’s a recipe for music and mayhem, for intensity and irreverence; it’s THE LOVE DOGS.

 

July 25 – Family Fun Night – Ben Rudnick & Friends, Food Trucks, Inflatables, Face Painting, and more!

Ben Rudnick & Friends – (http://www.benrudnick.com/)

Ben Rudnick & Friends play the hippest family music around. With countless awards to their credit, including SEVEN Parent’s Choice awards, their adventurous, high-energy blend of happy, upbeat acoustic music is guaranteed to entertain the entire family. Bending musical styles from country to bluegrass, rock to second-line New Orleans, their original songs and fun takes on familiar tunes make you sing, make you dance and make you happy.

 

Aug. 1 – Howie Newman & Jackie Damsky (http://www.howienewman.com/howieandjackie.html)

Howie Newman and Jackie Damsky, longtime performers on the New England acoustic music scene, play funny original songs (suitable for all ages) as well as well-known covers. It’s a very lively show with great musicianship and tight harmonies.

 

Aug. 8 – The Infractions

The Infractions, featuring the “Happening Horns,” have been a mainstay in the wedding, college, and concert scene for more than seven years. Their music ranges from horn-driven Funk and Hip-Hop to contemporary Swing and Ska. They infuse alternative Rock, old school 70’s, and the big 80’s.
