1) R. Duck’s location has something to do with the Schooner Festival.

2) Greg Bover cannot play this round.

To cross or not to cross ~ the bridge, that is.

Believe it or not, it’s still not too late to get your tickets to see two home-town legends in a once-in-a-lifetime performance tonight at the North Shore Music Theatre.  See yesterday’s post for details — remember 2 years ago this weekend? See video below:

Well, there are literally a dozen live music choices on Cape Ann tonight starting at 6pm.  See full live music lineup here.


This will take place on Stacey Boulevard, near the Cut-Bridge and a few hundred yards up from the Man At The Wheel Statue in Gloucester, Ma. They will have renown Sound Engineering and Lighting Company, R.K. Lighting Design and Engineer Ron Kuszmar will be on hand to handle all the sound and lights for the evenings events! I hear tell there
may be a Laser Show as well! This is going to be a gangbuster of an event that you’ll be sure to remember as Full Circle performs some of best classic rock music you will hear anywhere on the North Shore! We would like to extend a hearty thank you to Ringo Tarr for asking Full Circle to perform at this traditional event. We are truely honored and humbled, and we plan on giving you a performance you are sure to enjoy with selections to please a wide variety of tastes. No matter what your age, you will hear songs that are familiar to you and will make you want to dance! Full Circle appreciates this performance opportunity and looks forward to seeing you all there!

ORLEANS TONIGHT @ North Shore Music Theatre


ORLEANS, in its 40th year of life, WILL PERFORM
Friday, August 31 – 8pm
North Shore Music Theater
62 Dunham Road
Beverly, MA 01915
It’s not too late to grab tix for this rare North Shore performance!

Click here to listen to Fly Amero & Lance Hoppen on North Shore 104.9FM:

“What’s next?  Where do you guys go from here?”  The answer, according to longtime ORLEANS member, Fly
Amero, is the same as it always has been in the entertainment business – the show must go on!  Or, perhaps an
even better reply may be found in the words of Larry Hoppen himself…   “ LET THERE BE MUSIC ! ”

John Hall, songwriter and co-founding member of the classic american pop group, ORLEANS, rejoins his friends
(Fly Amero among them) once again as they carry on through the 2012 calendar year in honor of their fallen
comrade, Larry Hoppen. This rare New England performance features not only the legendary John Cafferty and
Michael “Tunes” Antunes (formerly of the Beaver Brown Band and Eddie & the Cruisers)… but also includes a
“walk-on” appearance by the great Joe Bouchard (formerly of Blue Oyster Cult).  Local legend Allen Estes will
open the show, and 10% of profits go to the North Shore YMCA Summer Camp Program.  Doors at 7:30pm!
