July 15 - The New City Cowboys

The New City Cowboys are a group of country music lovin' lifelong friends based, of all places, just south of Boston Massachusetts. They’ve been performing for years as The Armstrong Brothers band to popular acclaim throughout the South Shore since the 1980’s. But they love the new music coming out of Nashville so much that five years ago they formed their new band, The New City Cowboys, to bring the "New Nashville Sound" to the Boston area. Their goal is to make sure that you have as good a time listening to their favorite country music as they do performing it for you! The New City Cowboys are: Jim and Joe Armstrong, Bill Holbrook, as well as occasional visiting musicians and longtime ‘friends of the band", performing the country music we love from the likes of Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, and others.

July 29 - Divas with a Twist

Diva with a Twist is a unique musical group that performs all different genres of music, based out of Boston, MA. With five powerhouse female vocalists, backed by Grammy nominated musicians, Divas with a Twist is sure to captivate any audience. The musicians and vocalists bring originality and a high powered sound, creating, and delivering unique and highly entertaining performances every time! You'll hear songs by Queen, The Who, Gloria Estefan, The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Maroon Five, Lady Gaga, Adele and MORE!

August 12 - John Doney (5 PM - 6 PM) and John Logan (6 PM - 7PM)

This event has been postponed due the inclement weather. Please check back for a new date!

John Doney is a singer-songwriter with Western MA roots who has settled down in the South Shore. His music has been influenced by folk, rock, blues and country. He pulls from the likes of the Beatles and Paul Simon, with a nod towards rock n' roll's country and blues foundation. He has been writing and performing music across the state for the past 10 years.

By the age of 23, John Logan published two books, was on America’s Got Talent, and consulted a national Toyota commercial. You may recognize John’s name from the news where he captured national headlines when Tom Brady talked about him in his press conference. As the New England Patriots Team Magician and host of his own web series with the players, John was also the Opening Act for the Malcolm Mitchell Tour (Super Bowl 51 Champion). A recent graduate from Bryant University, John is currently presenting keynotes on creativity, helping to develop two television shows, and being the Associate Producer for an upcoming movie. You can learn more about John at www.johndukelogan.com.

August 26 - Kelsey Gilbert and Paul Doolittle

Kelsey Gilbert and Paul Doolittle are an acoustic duo playing classic songs from all decades of the modern era of American Popular Music.

September 9 - Jumpin’Juba

Jumpin’ Juba plays a mix of old-school blues, early rock & roll, and roots-y versions of Americana tunes. Steve Hurl sings and bends the guitar strings, Bruce Ward pounds the piano keys, Jan Kowalski blows a mean sax, David Langhoff knocks out the beat. Their 1st CD, Bumpity Bump, got great reviews, and play on many hip radio shows. Their follow-up, Slap Happy, attracted similar attention. Upbeat music suitable for listening and dancing. More info: www.stevehurl.com or www.reverbnation.com/jumpinjuba.

September 23 - Knock on Wood

Knock on Wood is a high-energy acoustic folk-rock duo, featuring singer-songwriter Howie Newman. Combining acoustic guitar with fiddle, mandolin and pleasing vocal harmonies, the duo performs classic rock covers along with funny original music (suitable for all ages). Their repertoire spans everything from the Beatles to Steely Dan to the Dropkick Murphys. It’s not your typical guitar-fiddle folk act. Knock on Wood puts on a lively, fun show with great musicianship and a little bit of humor here and there.
