Hey there music lovers. Mike and Ruthy are back in Boston, and rumor has it that they have quite the reputation! As a duo Mike + Ruthy know the true meaning to acoustic American music. They demonstrate an uncommon ability to create songs as lyrically sophisticated as Bob Dylan while adding a harmonically beautiful touch.
"Over a decade of touring has taken them worldwide where they've performed well over a thousand concerts in listening rooms, living rooms and festivals as well as performances at NYC's Carnegie Hall accompanying Arlo Guthrie in 2005 (with their former band The Mammals) and Madison Square Garden as part of Pete Seeger's 90th birthday celebration in 2009."
I've heard so many great things about Mike and Ruthy that I will even be going tonight! See them live tonight in Jamaica Plain at the historic Loring-Greenough House. Both concerts are the same suggested donation, $14-19 (less 20% discount for JPTC members) +$1 preservation fee.
There's nothing wrong with a little bit of music while enjoying your lunch in Downtown Boston- and if there is then you may want to avoid the Downtown Crossing Area during the month of October. But, if you are anything like me, you will be down to jam with the Boston Brass strolling musicians.
"The Downtown Boston BID brings a bit of brass to Downtown! A strolling quartet of two trumpets, a trombone, and tuba entertain lunchtime crowds with a selection of all-time favorites."
These guys will be rockin' the streets of Downtown Boston from noon to 2pm during the month of October 2012, entertaining many locals and tourists during lunch hour. You are sure to be impressed by their musical talent, and all for free. Make a lunch date downtown this October and enjoy these guys rock it like it's hot.
Béla Fleck and the Marcus Roberts Trio, Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival is a South End Jazzin' kind of time. Actually, it is the South End's first Jazz festival ever and the first one -12 years ago- had over 10,000 people! (They weren't expecting that...) This event hasn't slowed down a bit, and on September 29, 2012 they are going to throw down South End style. Twelve years later they have drastically grown the festival to over 60,000 people! That alone is proof enough that this event is an impactful part of Boston's cultural calendar.
"Enjoy world-class music on three stages, great eats, and good times stretching six blocks in Boston’s historic South End. Families are entertained with face painting, inflatables, photos, and an instrument petting zoo. More than 70 vendors participate, making the Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival the place to be."
So sketch it in the calendar and don't be the only person around missing out on this wicked awesome event. Rumor has it that there will be over 70,000 people this year and you don't want to be "that person." ... you know, that person who sits inside their man cave all day and never leaves the house. Show New Orleans who really knows how to JAZZ OUT and make your way to South End!
Jamaica Plain has no shortage of talented and diverse musicians, composers, and performers. On Saturday, September 8, 2012 they are given the chance to come together for one incredible day of music.
There is deep pride in Jamaica Plain. It manifests in one-of-a-kind Mom and Pop stores, restaurants, bars, art galleries, sports leagues, and political, cultural, and historical groups.
The musicians that live in Jamaica Plain have played all over the city and country. Despite the thriving scene that manifests itself in a few local venues and basement shows, there hasn't been an opportunity for these artists to get together locally on a large scale... until last year's inaugural JP Music Fest, and this year as well!
SO head on over later this week and get jammin... maaaan!
Each Friday this summer, start the weekend with Boston Harbor Hotel's Movies by Moonlight! An outdoor screen is set up on the side of the large gazebo right over the Harbor. Cafe patrons and pedestrians can watch a movie and absorb the ambience of the waterfront.
Don't forget to movie pregame! (Don't get out of control or anything cause they aren't going to pause the movie for you to use the restroom!) Before enjoying Movies by Moonlight each Friday, the Boston Harbor Hotel invites you to start the weekend off by the water and enjoy great company and music from DJ Mike Amado and Friends. Music will begin at 4:30pm every Friday evening and will end shortly before dusk, when Movies by Moonlight begins.
Movies by Moonlight offers guests a chance to revisit Hollywood’s silver screen and modern classics, which I KNOW YOU LOVE THOSE CLASSICS!! Like, who doesn't? Here is the list of upcoming dates and movies... and make sure to show up early to get your dance on!
