North Reading Community Coffeehouse – Summer Concert Series – At Ipswich River Park Gazebo

June 15 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The North Reading Community Coffeehouse (NRCC), in conjunction with the Friends of the Flint Memorial Library, is proud to present the first of three outdoor Showcase concerts this summer in the Gazebo at Ipswich River Park on Saturday, June 15 at 4 PM.  In the event of rain, the event will take place in the Activity Room of the Flint Memorial Library at 147 Park Street in North Reading.  This event is sponsored by the Massachusetts Cultural Council – North Reading Chapter.

This first Showcase concert will feature Ben Eramo and Andrew Pesaturo from “Scenes – A Billy Joel Experience” live, in an unplugged Billy Joel and Elton John tribute!  Playing together since 2013, “Scenes” has traveled all over New England and beyond, including Las Vegas, Seattle, and Pittsburgh performing the Piano Man’s greatest hits from “Piano Man” to “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant”, and beyond. Opening the show, Rowley, MA native, Sean Godbout will be performing an acoustic set of originals and 1970’s era soft rock songs from artists like Lucinda Williams, and Bob Dylan. We have been trying for some time to get Ben and Andrew to North Reading and it is finally going to happen!  This concert will be followed by two more on Saturday, July 20 and Saturday, August 17, both at 4 PM.  Outstanding performers have already been lined up for all three Showcase concerts.  There promises to be a mix of beautiful original tunes and covers of well-known artists.  All that needs to happen now is for the music lovers in North Reading and the surrounding communities to come to Ipswich River Park, bring a chair, a blanket or use the benches and tables provided at the park, bring something to eat, then simply relax and enjoy the music.  Again, the concerts are free and there is plenty of parking.  For those of you who would like to see the concerts but cannot make it in person, we will livestream them on the North Reading Community Coffeehouse Facebook page and then put it on the NRCC YouTube channel .  We look forward to seeing you there.
