The Hallowell Community Band
Organized in 1948, the Hallowell Community Band will continue their tradition of entertaining you with many old favorites. Members range in age from their teens through their eighties – plus! This mix gives the band the enthusiasm of youth along with the experience of elders.
Kicking off this year’s entertainment is Swingtime! Elaine Bender and her crew of exceptional players return to Old Hallowell Day with a fabulous collection of songs from the golden age of American music. Whether dancing or just listening, everyone is sure to enjoy the sounds of Swingtime!
Jazz Melt features Bill Moseley on flute, Andy Moulton on guitar, Dave Briggs on acoustic bass and Andy Schultz on congas. A melting pot of Jazz from all eras and styles, including original compositions.
The Cowboy Angels
The Cowboy Angels (Dan McKaw, Erik Glockler, Roger Sampson and Ginger Cote) came together over their mutual love of classic country music. If you like Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, George Jones, Johnny Cash…you’ll love The Cowboy Angels. Follow them on Facebook.
Hallowell Does Tom Petty
The folks who brought us celebrations honoring The Last Waltz, Woodstock, and Bob Dylan are turning their attention this Old Hallowell Day to the music of Tom Petty. Some of our hometown’s finest musicians come together to play the songs of one of America’s greatest rock and roll icons.
Alter Igor embraces the beauty of the perfectly crafted 3 minute pop/rock song. Enjoy gems from The Beatles, Todd Rundgren, Elvis Costello, REM, Fountains Of Wayne….
The Renovators are a rockin’ blues band from Portland, led by Bob Rasero (guitar/vocals), Jeff Davison (drums), Dave Thibodeau (bass), and Robin Worthley on Keys. Just like a well-constructed vintage home with good bones, this band has seen a lot of living and their seven CDs of original music show that. Rootsy, blues, soul, swing, country, rhumba, funk….and more! Check out their website: renovatorsband.com
