Greetings Meteorology Enthusiasts,

Rain, rain, go away. Come again some . . . could we at least wait until next week? Well fellow Philadelphians, if you’ve ever considered moving to Seattle, now you know what it’s like. Mother Nature scored round one last week when rain cancelled my scheduled outdoor show in Narberth but I’m trying a couple more times this week to do the outdoor, under-the-stars (or, in Saturday’s case, the sun and stars) concert thing.

I’m feeling pretty confident that the weather is going to cooperate, so catch some sun rays and sound waves together while you can - at the rate we’ve been going this year, this might be the last sunny week for a while.

TUESDAY, 6.23.09 - 7P
EAGLEVIEW CONCERT SERIES
EXTON, PA

It’s becoming a little tradition to play the Eagleview Series. One of the nicest in the area in terms of the setting, the sound and the lineups. Bringing some of the boys in the band with me, so even more reason to grab the blankets and lawn chairs (and the kids) and enjoy an early summer night out.

The Recap:
Tuesday, 6.23.09 - 7p
JIM BOGGIA
Eagleview Concert Series
100 Eagleview Boulevard - Exton, PA

Free. All Ages. Graham Brown opens.

SATURDAY, 6.27.09 - 5P TO 10P
10TH ANNIVERSARY GORGAS PARK MUSIC FESTIVAL
GORGAS PARK - ROXBOROUGH, PA

I swiped the following off of Ben Arnold’s website, because I don’t think I could say it better myself. I WILL add though that Ben has been an unsung hero over the last 10 years turning the Gorgas Park Summer Concerts into the great thing it’s become. This will be a very special day of music. You should come.

Ben says:

Ten years ago Jim Boggia and I played a couple sets of music outside, in front of the Gorgas Park outhouse and office on a couple pieces of plywood in the rain. Ever since it has become a summer time tradition to get the kids out in the park, spread out the blankets, pop open a couple bottles and hear some great local music under the sun and the stars. Over the years, we’ve had guests Phil Roy, The Brakes, Amos Lee, 4 Way Street, Tom Gillam, The Lowlands, Scott Silipigni and more.

This year we’re celebrating the long haul with a special extended festival style show featuring bluegrass from The Wissahickon Chicken Shack, trippy folk and roll from The Great Unknown, the lovely voice and songs of Adrien Reju, great local hip-hop from Kufi Knots and The Hustle,, the killer pop of Jim Boggia, my band will be playing a set and we always have some very special guests on hand. So, grab a cooler, a chair, a blanket and a friend and come on out!

Just so ya know…the outhouse is still there but now we play under the swanky new Gazebo and, this show is FREE!!

The Recap:
SATURDAY, 6.27.09 - 5p to 10p

NARBERTH SUMMER CONCERTS IN THE PARK ‘09
NARBERTH, PA

Great things about Summer: 1. End of Winter. 2. End of Winter Depression. 3. The return of the Mr. Softee truck that drives around my neighborhood STARTING at 10p every night. 4. The Phillies. 5. Outdoor concerts! (Not necessarily in that order.)

Bring the blanket, bring the kids, I’m playing my first outdoor show of the Summer this coming Wednesday, 6.17.09 at 8p in the lovely little borough of Narberth - a village surrounded on all sides by Ardmore and yet they still haven’t surrendered.

HILLSIDE CAFE
NUTLEY, NJ

I had to look it up on the map, but this is “New York Jersey”, not “Philadelphia Jersey”. So, for those of you in New York City who do the traditional “I gotta get the %@#* out of the city this weekend” summer shuffle . . . why not spend a Saturday night taking in the sights and sounds of Nutley, NJ? I And those of you in the “New York Jersey” area who DON’T like the hassle of going into the city for a show will, I hope, come on out.
