Harbor Loop Concerts a Big Hit!

With the great weather last night, the hill on Harbor Loop was packed. The pizza and other food vendors stayed open after the Farmer’ Market closed. Kids were everywhere. The Megan McKenzie Band opened the concert and rocked the house. To hear the band, click here.


The sun set, and Phat Maxx took the stage. The kids accepted the band’s invitation to come onto the stage and little rockers danced the night away.


Next week is the last concert with Hoodoo Revelator who had to be rescheduled because of bad weather early this summer.

From Dave Sag on the Rhumb Line’s Thursday Night Blues Party

“Got a special show for y’all this week as I drag my dearest friend, John Rankin, out of the slickery swamp of Louisiana and wring  him dry on  Fred’s font of perpetual resurrection: the Rhumb Line. Educator, performer, vocalist, citizen, weekend father, this guy can do it all, and at the same time, too. He’ll be digging deep into that good ol’  Nawlins pile of steaming R&B, and throwin’ in a coupla originals to boot. You gotta hear this.

Behind him, pushing the beat will be our old buddy, Forrest “gump” Padgett on heart attack drums, Paul  Ahlstrand on tenor twelve sax, and yers trooly on base. C’mon down and tell John how much you like my punctuation!”
