Hear Us Now, Funk Us Later In June

Good morning Funkonauts!

Let’s get this thing started out on the good foot, shall we? Lots of thanks to everyone who has been coming out to our shows. As much as we all love playing music, it’s always better when we can see y’all gettin’ down in front of us, having a good time. We truly appreciate all the kind words and the support over the last year.

Speaking of which, this June marks the Boomshack’s first year of playing out live! We’re going to be celebrating big time this coming Saturday night at The Run Of The Mill in Saco. We’ll be out on the patio (keep yer fingers crossed for good weather) getting the crowd moving. If you’ve never been over to The Mill before, there’s plenty of room to dance and lots of good craft beer on tap. Get there early and help us get the party started right at 9pm. No cover, no excuses. Joining us for this great night on guitar will be an original member of the ‘Shack, Scott Morgan.

The rest of the month is going to be a busy one as well. The weekend after next, we’ll be at Bray’s Brew Pub in Naples for Funky Friday June 8th (no cover). We’ll be at Mr. Goodbar in Old Orchard Beach on Thursday June 14th (21+ and $5 cover) – this is a new venue for us and we’d love to see all your smiling faces in the audience to support us. Then we’ll be at Gingko Blue in Portland on Funky Friday June 22nd (no cover) for all you Old Port aficionados. Also, if you’re finding your way up to The Maine Blues Festival on Father’s Day weekend, you’ll be able to catch Sam and John playing on Friday and Saturday – more information once we find out venues and times.

Again, thanks for coming out and we look forward to seeing y’all very very soon. Remember to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for all the latest updates.

Back To Work For Funky Friday!

People, people, people… are you ready? ‘Cause we’re standing on the verge of gettin’ it on!

This Friday, we bring the funky soul you know, love, and crave back to Gingko Blue on Fore Street in Portland. As usual, no cover means that you have no excuses for missing this one. If you haven’t had a chance to stop by Gingko before, then this is the perfect chance to give it a try. A slick little lounge at the corner of Fore and Union, you won’t be disappointed with the atmosphere or the outstanding adult beverage selection available.

To top it off, we’ve got some special folks joining us as well… Alex Cardamone will be bringing the brass on trumpet and powerhouse drummer Chris Marro will be laying down the beat.

We go on at 9:00 pm and we’ll see you there!

Slinky Saturday Anyone?

Greetings funkonauts and dancing queens – it’s time for us to emerge from our funk bunker and get ready for another show.

This Saturday, we’ll be bringing some serious soul to Gingko Blue in Portland. If you haven’t made it out to any of our shows there, then you’ve been missing out! Great atmosphere with a stellar selection of adult beverages for the most discerning of tastebuds… Oh yeah, and some killer tunes from yours truly!

We’ll have some new original tunes for y’all to stuff in your earholes along with a extra strength dose of that old school funk you’ve come to know and love. Drop on by early to grab a good seat, then get ready to leave it when the music starts at 9pm.

Gingko Blue is located at 455 Fore Street, on the corner of Fore and Union, in the Old Port. See you there!

Funky Friday Returns to Gingko Blue

Good Monday to all you funkonauts out there! Hopefully, you’ve recovered from St. Patricks Day enough to become a productive member of society again. We had a great time playing for the folks over in Old Orchard Beach and want to thank everyone for making it out.

This coming Friday (that’d be March 23rd for those of you scoring at home), we return to the comfy confines of Gingko Blue in Portland’s Old Port for what’s sure to be another great show. If you haven’t made it out to Gingko Blue yet, do yourself a favor and circle this one on the calendar. It’s an upscale swanky little lounge that has a great atmosphere and an even better selection of fine adult beverages for your delectation. Better yet, there’s no cover for this show!

So get yourself all dolled up this Friday and join us at 9pm for some funky tunes. We’ve been working hard on some new tunes since we’ve been there last, so this one is going to be fun.
