Somebody much wiser than me once said, “Necessity is the mother of invention.”
If this is the case, then musically speaking, Steve Peer is invention's baby daddy.
A long time musician, Peer began promoting music locally along the “Bar Harbor-Bangor corridor” after returning from a long stint drumming in Halifax. Finding himself paying out more than seemed feasible for hall rentals and generously feeding and housing traveling bands, he looked for a more cost effective venue. It was then that Peer decided to strip his home and convert the first floor into “America's favorite house concert.”
What started predominately as a vehicle to showcase Gaelic performers, 430 Bayside in Ellsworth has offered a stage to acts almost as diverse as Peer's own musical tastes and genres in which he is a proficient drummer.
