The 2014 Summer Bandstand Concerts

The Old Cornish Fairgrounds, RT 25, Cornish, Maine
( next to Bangor Savings Bank)

Concerts every Tuesday evening, beginning July 1, 2014
7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

In case of rain, concerts held at the Sacopee Valley Middle School


July 1 – Tricky Britches
High-energy bluegrass music – young musicians with amazing talent!

"Tricky Britches is right in the middle of a new movement toward old time music, along with Old Crow Medicine Show, the Avett Brothers, the Toughcats, and the Hackensaw Boys." – Sam Pfeifle, Portland Pheonix

“Don’t let their youth fool you: the Tricky Britches are expert musicians through and through, and they will deliver a boisterous set…”
- William Etheridge, Maine Magazine 2012 Wedding Issue


July 8 – Sean Mencher and His Rhythm Kings
1950’s Style Americana / Rockabilly / Roots Music

“Honestly, I don't believe that Sean Mencher needs a long introduction as every true rockabilly fans should know him either from his work with High Noon, his productions (The Two Timin' Three, The Gin Palace Jesters, Jessie Lee Miller, Croonin' Kurt...) or his appearances as guest guitarist (Wayne "The Train" Hancock, Dig Wayne...). This fine guitar player also finds time to lead his own band, The Sean Mencher Combo.”
by Fred "Virgil" Turgis

July 15 – Jimmy Jo and the Jumbol Ayuhs

JimmyJo & the Jumbol'Ayuhs hails from the "bayous" of coastal Maine. Based in Phippsburg, the Jumbol'Ayuhs serve up music from Cajun Louisiana with a Downeast accent.

July 22 – Larry Williams Band
Wedding/Dance Band

The Larry Williams Band played at our wedding and it was a fantastic experience and highly recommended. He had everyone on the dance floor from our grandmothers all the way down to our teenage cousins. No DJ could have accomplished that feat. They are professional and easy to work with. They even learned a couple special songs (The Ohio State Fight Song) to play for our out of town guests. There is not enough space to say all the wonderful things about the band. – Ryan Whitt (The Woodlands, Falmouth)

July 29 – Jerks of Grass

Gathered around one microphone in the traditional style, over the past decade New England’s Jerks of Grass have become a formidable purveyor of their own brand of bluegrass music. With one foot in the traditional and the other in progressive roots music, Jerks of Grass have forged a sound all their own.

Testimonials:
"Thank you so much for presenting such a rousing, melodious and thoroughly professional concert last Saturday night. I absolutely love your approach to bluegrass music, and as you know, that seemed to be true of the whole audience. As I mentioned to a couple of you, I don't think I've ever seen an audience rise for a standing ovation with greater uniformity and spontaniety. I hope you'll keep a couple of Saturday evenings open next summer so the possibility of a return visit will exist."

"I don't even like bluegrass - but you guys are great!" - Random Fan
