Rockport-based vocalist Ann O’Donnell together with North Shore locals Josh Bevins (bass), Tom Bull (drums), Bobby Cedrone (guitar and vocals), and Tom O’Donnell (guitar and vocals) have a combined century of rock experience, while playing together as a band for fifteen years.All of the band members began their musical journeys in garage bands. They will play a choice mix of tunes from the seventies, eighties and nineties. Classic rock by Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, the Allman Brothers, Rolling Stones and Moody Blues and other greats will take you on a musical trip down memory lane. “Love, relationships and nature are big themes of our songs,” said Ann O’Donnell. “We combine ‘torch songs’ whichare slow and soulful with eurythmic and dancing songs. We have fun, and the audience loves our choice of songs.” Each week Music on MeetinghouseGreen partners with a different non-profit organization to raise awarenessfor the services they provide to the local community. At the July 12 concert, the audience is invited to contribute to a freewill donation for Backyard Growers, a grassroots non-profit organization that teaches people to grow their own food. Classic Cooks will provide tasty food for concert-goers. The Gloucester Meetinghouse, home of the Unitarian Universalist Church, is located at the corner of Church and Middle Streets. The concert is handicapped accessible. Event parking is available on the green and at additional parking lots nearby in the Historic District. Folding chairs will be provided or bring your own beach chair or blanket. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held inside the Meetinghouse.
