THE GODDESSES ROCK MUSIC ON MEETINGHOUSE GREEN ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 12
Gloucester’s own Goddesses light up the night with an evening of classic rock ‘n roll at the corner of Middle and Church Streets at 6:00 p.m.
Whether your best dance move is the Twist, Stroll, Watusi, Mashed Potato, Hustle, Funky Chicken, Running Man, or Moonwalk, the Goddesses have you covered
with the best-of-the-best classic rock ‘n roll tunes. Their repertoire spans the roots of rock to its pinnacle and beyond and the Goddesses deliver a non-stop
performance that will have you on your feet, singing along, and wanting more. Headlined by powerhouse couple Tony and Samantha Goddess on vocals and
electric guitar, the Goddesses features Dave Sag on bass, Steve Chaggaris on drums, and John Cameron on keys. Special guest musician for this performance
will be Mayor Greg Verga, an accomplished bass player and performer.
Your free-will donations will benefit HAWC – creating social change by taking action against personal and societal patterns of violence and oppression. The evening’s
food vendor is the Lobster Roller offering their delicious lobster rolls and clam chowder.
Now in its seventh season, Music on Meetinghouse Green features nine free Friday evening concerts from July 8 to September 9. Performances are held on the Green
with great music, favorite foods from local vendors, and a different North Shore non-profit organization benefits each week through free-will donations from the audience.
Concerts begin at 6:00 p.m. and conclude at 8:30 p.m. Some chairs will be provided and audience members are welcome to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets. Picnic
with delicious local food from our vendors or bring your own. Performances are handicapped accessible and parking on the Green is limited to persons with disabilities.
