Greetings to all the good funkonauts of the world! It might only be Tuesday, but it’s never too early to gear up for a funky good time this weekend – and have we ever got a deal for you…
This Thumptastic Thursday night, we return to Old Orchard Beach at Mr. Goodbar. This is a great club located at 6 East Grand Avenue – literally a stones throw from the beach – with plenty of room to get down and a system that brings the boom. Doors open up at 7pm and then music gets rolling at 9pm – cover is only $5 for the night. Along with that, they have some awesome drink specials going on that just can’t be beat anywhere else on the beach – $2 beers and $5 16oz cocktails all night long.
The next night, Funky Friday returns to Zackery’s on Riverside Drive in Portland! We’ll be bringing the funk and possibly some new tunes to the stage starting at 8:30pm until midnight. Zackery’s is located at 81 Riverside Drive inside the Fireside Inn & Suites, right off I-95. There’s tons of free parking the it’s only $5 at the door. C’mon down with us and help us shake the joint up.
If you want to keep up-t0-date on all the funky mayhem, be sure to like us on Facebook and also follow us on Twitter. Thanks again for coming out and we’re looking forward to seeing y’all this weekend!
The summer is young and it’s already been very very good to the Boomshack. We got James back from Europe, although his liver is still attempting to clear customs after being accused of smuggling several liters* of various spirits. To celebrate, we’re bringing him back to the Old Port with us and declaring June 22nd an extra special Funky Friday.
Which means you need to gather all your favorite funkonauts and come party with us at Gingko Blue this Friday night. The beat drops at 9:00 pm and goes until they shut the power off on us. No cover, no excuses.
While we’ve got a moment, thanks to everyone who made it out to Mr. Goodbar this past Thursday night – we had a blast and are looking forward to dropping some more funky soul on the Beach in August!
* That’s right – liters. We’re gettin’ all metric up in this joint!
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.
