Huge Announcement from the Lowell Summer Music Series
Wow! When John Marciano, the man who books the talent for the Lowell Summer Music Series, said that there was going to be a huge announcement, he wasn’t kidding! I’m pleased to announce that Gregg Allman with guest Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band will perform on Saturday, August 9.
This an incredibleaddition to the already wonderful lineup.
I am so excited that he will appear this summer. I have never seen him solo, and I am eagerly anticipating a great show. Gregg had been scheduled to perform at the Series a few years ago, but his health caused him to cancel that tour.
His press release states, “Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman is both a founding member of one of the biggest and most important American bands of all time, the still-active and thriving Allman Brothers Band, and a critically acclaimed solo talent. A natural artist gifted with a beautifully soulful and distinctive voice as well as brilliant keyboard and guitar expertise, Allman is a legendary performer who, more than 30 years down the road, still loves making music as much as ever.”
Tickets for the Gregg Allman show are priced at $44 in advance (fee-free!), $50 on the day of the show (if available), and children 12 and under are always free courtesy of Eastern Bank. There are also premium seats – beach chairs are provided by the Series – set in two rows directly in front of the stage for $144. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, April 16 at 9 a.m. through Lowell Summer Music Series.
For those of you who are unaware of the Series, or if you are aware of it but have never attended a show there, it is an outdoor (weather permitting) concert series held on National Park Service grounds in Lowell, Massachusetts. The Series is not-for-profit, which helps keep the ticket prices reasonable.
Surrounding Boarding House Park are old mill buildings, part of the Lowell National Historical Park, which you can tour if you arrive early enough. They provide an unusual setting for an evening of great music and ambiance.
The Series generally runs from late June to early September.
This Series is dear to my heart. I have been a season pass holder since 2007 and it is one of the highlights of the year (and of summer in particular) for me. Many lasting friendships have been made there. I expect this will be an especially excellent year since they are celebrating their 25th season!
I will post additional announcements for the Series as they are made.
