ENJOY THESE AMAZING PERFORMERS
North of Trouble
North of Trouble is a generational soul, funk, and blues cover band performing songs people know and love. North of Trouble covers songs from Stevie Wonder to Bill Withers to Otis Redding, and many more!
Sarah Blacker Trio
Sarah Blacker is a one-of-a kind performer who’s music is described as “gorgeous, evocative and eerie,” and while she is regularly compared to Joni Mitchell with her stop-you-dead-in-your-tracks vocals and unique harmonic twists, she arrives with a side of Classic rock n’roll.
Traditional Jamaican Ska, Rocksteady, Dirty Reggae, and Soul Fusion This group will put the beat in your feet! Featuring some of the North Shore’s best horn and rhythm players!
Not your average jam band! Local 148 has created a sound best know from Salem’s legendary Blues Jams. The band features the Northshore’s best and most promising talent.
