MUSIC – The Wildcat O’Halloran Band 

The Wildcat O’Halloran Band has been a Massachusetts institution in the blues community for over two decades.   The band’s latest release, Hot Pulldown, brims with tight musicianship and raucous energy.  The band has opened for Greg Allman, been Bo Diddley’s backing band, and were the winners of the Valley Advocate grand blues Slam! 

REFRESHMENTS – All non-alcoholic beverages are included in the ticket price, and we will be selling alcoholic beverages for our 21+ adult guests. We’ll have some custom cocktails, wine, and beer. Come thirsty and bring some cash, a card and your I.D.! 

GAMES & OTHER ENTERTAINMENT – If you’re not one to shake a leg, try your hand at one of our fun lawn games, and keep an eye out for other fun entertainment to be added as we get closer to our event.


This is an outdoor cocktail style event. Visit our food stations, enjoy our live music, sip some beverages and play lawn games!
