July concerts & updates!

After a rain out on the 10th the July concerts were HOT! The Transistors brought their cool “Sounds of the Sixties,” The Hollis Town Band came all out with their big band (on Vehicle Night!) and then Brian Templeton put on THE BEST Blues performance we’ve ever seen in Dunstable!

More good news: We’ll be making up the rained out Kim Poesse Band concert – on August 17th at the Grange Fair.  It’s a Saturday afternoon concert so come on down to the Grange Fair, check out the winners under the tent then sit down and enjoy the show!

We’ve got two more Wednesday evening concerts: We have Matuto to play their Brazilian Bluegrass on August 7th and The Bel Airs will Doo-Wop their way back to Dunstable on August 14th

Here are some pictures from our July concerts:

Two Successful Concerts!

Our 2013 summer concert series is off to a great start! The Old Enuff To Know Better Band kicked off concert #1 to a Town Common packed with people – returning families as well as many new faces (so nice to see you ALL!)  Also back this year was a couple of adorable ponies and a dancing goat from Enchanted Animals (Groton, MA) for pony rides and petting. They’ve promised to come back to a few more concerts this summer!

Making the call for concert #2 was a difficult decision, but it was definitely the right one! The band went on right at 6:30 under ominous skies and a dreary rain. Twenty minutes later the rain had stopped and the sun came out!
The concert was sponsored by Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union and they came ready to share fun beach balls and Frisbees!  And during intermission we enjoyed a karate demonstration from a young group from the Neil Stone's Karate Academy.

We’re off this week so enjoy your Fourth of July holiday!

We’ll be back on July 10th with some country music for you from The Kim Poesse Band!
‘Till then enjoy some pictures from concerts 1 & 2!

See you on the common!

Summer 2013 Concerts

We’ve posted our Summer 2013 concert schedule so check out the bands; you’ll see some familiar names, recurring favorites as well as couple of bands that are new to us!

Of course it just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t kick-off the summer Concert Series with Dunstable’s own Old Enuff To Know Better Band as we will on Wednesday, June 19th. Also back by popular demand: The Transistors, rockers Rampage Trio, and bluesman Brian Templeton. And it’s been a few years but we’re happy to report that The Hollis Town Band will be back on July 24th. Since they were so well received last summer we’ll also be bringing back that Doo-Wop group we enjoyed so much – The Bel Airs! 

In response to our survey last summer we’re bring a new country band – The Kim Poesse Band. We enjoyed their demo and are really looking forward to hearing and seeing them on the bandstand on July 10th – we hope you will too! 
The other new band you’ll see this summer is an exciting group of musicians called Matuto. Their music is described as Brazilian Bluegrass and they come with rave reviews. They’re from New York and have played music festivals across the country and at venues such as The Kennedy Center.  How we got them to come to Dunstable? We’re still scratching our heads on that one! You can see Matuto FOR FREE on August 7th

See you on the common!
