Hey, this is a cool place! We had a lot of fun going there.... they have a great alcove for the bands with a killer PA. We just brought in our guitar amps and drums (love our own stuff) and set up and played! Acoustics. Like we said -- Awesome. Sometimes you play in large halls/gyms and the sound just bounces all over the place. Not here.
Lots of people there. We played a varied set, a few covers, three of our originals, and an improv. We heard lots of clapping and cheers and saw some dancing. If you were there, please send us an email! We would love to thank you!
We played with a new band, The Outriders, and a great well-known band, The Mystery Tramps. The Mystery Tramps have played on tour, in Newbury Comics, etc., and have even had a single played on the radio. They were great to us. And by the way, they are playing at the Middle East on Sunday, February 26, at 1 p.m. We are going to try and catch their act. We also heard soloist Haley Lawry. Someone said she was 12, we don't believe it! She had to be at least 15. Great voice.
As for Boston Street, they even have great food! One of the eight of us ordered a Blackened Chicken Caesar Salad, and the thing could have fed all eight of us! The appetizer platters are huge too... loved the potato skins! They have one drink made with Captin Crunch Cereal that we couldn't try for obvious reasons... you'll just have to go to get more info on that thing!
We hope to play there again another vacation week -- it was just plain fun!
Hey, got a funny story to tell. We have never played in Lynn/Saugus before so we had Greg's little 6-year old brother, Griffin, pass out some of our Undecided Youth picks at the show. At first it was just fine, but then someone must have thought he was cute so they started paying him for the picks! We don't know if 10 people just decided to pay him for the picks or he started charging for them because he walked out of the place $10 bucks richer! (OK, we'll admit he's cute, but $10 bucks for cuteness?)
Here are some pics (didn't get any stellar ones but...)
