Another Double Bill Added To The Lowell Summer Music Series Lineup
The Lowell Summer Music Series is bringing two rocking first-timers to the stage at Boarding House Park. The Stompers and The Fools appear on Saturday, August 31st. I do not know anything about either band, so I look forward to getting to know some more new artists!
The Fools are described as follows: “Great music, performed by talented musicians, with a hefty helping of comedy comes together in a unique charm that has been lighting up smiles for years. With extensive touring, radio and video success and millions of records sold, The Fools maintain their legendary status. Their best known songs include: “It’s a Night for Beautiful Girls,” “Psycho Chicken,” “Life Sucks…Then You Die,” “She Makes Me Feel Big,” “Doo Wah Diddy,” and “World Dance Party”.”
“The Stompers have long been recognized for their raucous live shows; kept alive for more than four decades by a spirited legion of dedicated fans. The Stompers played their first live show in 1977. Their music appears in the John Sayles’ film, Return Of The Secaucus Seven, the cult classic, Fraternity Vacation and Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2.
“Their radio hits include, “Never Tell An Angel”, “American Fun”, “Coast to Coast”, “Rock, Jump and Holler”, “Eastside Girl” and “One Heart For Sale”.
“The Stompers mission has always been to lift the spirt, shake the body and spread the mighty jubilation that is rock n roll. Keeping that tradition alive and kicking for four decades, the band continues to deliver the whole barn burnin’ roof raisin’ foot stompin’ rock n roll church to sellout audiences everywhere!!
“Now in their 41st year, The Stompers continue to play a limited number of shows each year to audiences spanning three generations. The Stompers Rock n Roll Revelry is full steam ahead!“
Tickets for The Fools and The Stompers show are priced at $32 in advance (fee-free!). There are also premium seats – beach chairs are provided by the Series – set in two rows directly in front of the stage for $107. Tickets for this show went on sale Wednesday, April 24th at 10 a.m. through Lowell Summer Music Series. Children under 12 are always free – parents, this is a great way to introduce your kids to live music in a safe, family-friendly environment. Don’t forget their ear protection!
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 mid-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 another excellent year!
