BANGOR – Fusion Bangor has revived its annual awards event and will take to the Bangor Waterfront on Nov. 15 in what organizers are calling the Fusion Awards Extravaganza.
The day of the event will see a temporary addition to the waterfront: a large tent, popping with different colors and bursting with music from the 1980s. This will be an awards ceremony and social event like no other in the Bangor Region.
Iconic legends rock Bangor Waterfront
BANGOR – As the old Journey song says, "the party's over." As the leaves begin to fall, the Waterfront stage is heading to the ground - but not before Bangor rocked with Journey, Pat Benatar and Loverboy on Friday night.
Loverboy, famous for the early ’80s staples "The Kid is Hot Tonight" and "Lovin' Every Minute of It," started the evening. The band’s lead vocalist, Mike Reno, can still knock out the vocals. They wrapped up with "Working for the Weekend," a suitable choice indeed for a crowd happily standing in a cold drizzle.
BANGOR - Live music will fill the air in and around the Bangor Waterfront on Wednesday, July 4 during Chords For Cure VIII – a benefit concert that guarantees attendees the best seat in town for the largest fireworks display in Maine.
Scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. at Waterfront Concerts Pavilion and continue up to the fireworks at 9:30 p.m., Chords For Cure will be headlined by The Stone Doctors, a group of medical professionals who perform note-perfect versions of classic material by The Rolling Stones. The band only performs for charity.
Orthopedic surgeon Ian Dickey of Bangor handles lead guitar and backing vocals for The Stone Doctors and says the rest of the band will arrive from Montreal a couple of days before the show. “This will be our eighth Chords For Cure event and we’re looking forward to a truly rocking and explosive event,” Dickey said during a recent appearance on The Mike and Mike Show.
BANGOR - After an eventful year on the charts, the Grammy-Award winning Zac Brown Band is hitting the road once again this summer. They will visit the Bangor Waterfront Pavilion on Saturday June 2.
Zac Brown Band's second major label studio album 'You Get What You Give' (Atlantic/Southern Ground Artists, Inc.) was released on September 21, 2010 and debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album features guest appearances by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett.
"It's a defining record...Every step of it's done the right way and I expect people are really going to love this record and see the depth of our musicianship, we're always growing,” said Brown to the Associated Press. “Not that we've arrived at any grand finale or anything, but the progress from this last record to this one, it's tremendous and I'm proud of it."
BANGOR - The KahBang arts and music festival came to an end this past weekend, but not without going out with a bang. The waterfront was alive with music highlighting talent from local Maine artists to the Grammy-nominated band My Morning Jacket. KahBang rocked the waterfront, attracting people from all walks of life.
The headliners Friday night were Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and Lupe Fiasco. Grace, opened with their hit “Paris (OooLaLa),” exciting the crowd for more. She truly rocked the stage with jamming guitars and organ solos, as people danced and hula-hooped their way into nightfall that created a great experience for all ages.
As the night moved on, the bright lights shown down on Chicago-raised rapper Lupe Fiasco. Sporting a full band behind him, he had great energy that vibrated through the crowd and really getting people up and shaking their groove thang well into the night
