Rain got ya down? Cheer up Funkonauts! Funky Friday is heading your way as the Boomshack hits the road to Naples, Maine this week and another good time at Bray’s Brew Pub. Never been to Bray’s? For shame! Located right on Route 302, it’s a cozy pub in an old Victorian bursting at the seams with good eats and craft beers on tap. Oh yeah, and lots and lots of music to boot.
Now that James has returned from his leisurely tour of Europe, Asia, and the sub-continent, he’s ready to get funky like a bowlegged monkey. Sam returns to the mothership after siding it up with Tom Gallant at Asylum last weekend. The band is back together people… and ready to play.
We drop the beat at 9:30 pm and keep rolling until half past midnight. Never a cover and always a good time – come check us out!
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.
If you’ve been itching to learn guitar or know someone who is, why not learn from one of the best? Our very own Sam Berce is now teaching lessons through Midcoast School Of Music at their Bath and Portland campuses.
As anyone with ears who’s been to one of shows is well aware, Sam is an excellent player with a tremendous talent for slide guitar as well. In addition to getting funky like a bowlegged monkey, he’s also adept at blues, jazz, rock, and many other genres as well as music theory.
Visit the Midcoast School Of Music website for more information or just stop Sam at one of our shows.
