Yr7•341-366•2532•Party of the Year

Yesterday was the party of the year, the 4th annual Labor Day Bash at The Tradesman in Milford Ma. This is Ray Auger and I on the stage with a few of our friends – yes they are friends telling us we are number one! Ray is the mastermind behind this event, so why not let him speak… the following is from him.  If you want to see ALL the photos check out the set on my facebook page here.

Wow what a night. 800+ people (good chance there was a few more!)… 9 bands… delicious food from Anzios Brick Oven Pizza, Wicked Twisted Pretzels and Larry Joes New England Fire Pit… massages from Kelsey Rutkowski… incredible music by Josh Briggs & Friends, Jambag, SOULidarity, Shanna Jackman and Not in Kansas, Bad Marriage, Tailgates Down Band, Charity Case, The Abe Froman Project and Tigerlily… just an incredible lineup of local music!

We raised money for Cory’s Crusaders, Inc. and Milford Ma. Youth Football and Cheer this year through a raffle and all the bands donating their fees back to the cause. Each organization will be receiving about $1500 each!

Thanks so much to Rob DeDominic for putting it all on the line year after year, making it possible for us to throw this party. I appreciate his dedication and willingness to let us do crazy shit at his bar. Now show him your support by visiting The Tradesman again soon AND Valley Pub… his other establishment in Whitinsville. Thanks to Tim Rice of timrice/photo for making all look so good! It’s no doubt that this thing gets bigger and bigger every year because he captures the fun for all to see so perfectly. Thanks to Christopher Rando for amazing sound, stage and lighting. You made us sound and look like rock stars my friend. Thanks to William James for managing the stage all day. He kept us all in check while rocking a set of his own with Charity Case. Thanks to Ed Barry for proving the community drum kit, Todd Boisvert for the bass rig and Gordon Swanson of UpFront Guitars for the rest of the backline. Thanks to the entire staff of The Tradesman and Valley Pub and all the volunteers who worked their asses off all day. Thanks to Jay Pillarella and Dawn Bailey (That Smarts by Dawn) for the cool commemorative t-shirts. Thanks to Milford Police Department and fire departments for doing an outstanding job managing the crowds and supporting the party in general. Same to the Town of Milford, especially our selectmen who approved the party. Great to see you at the show Will Kingkade! You too Scott Harrison. I love walking through the crowd and seeing town officials and school committee members like Joey Callery and off duty police officers and firefighters. This event has really turned into a great community celebration.

On a more personal level thanks to the two great bands I am honored to be a part of… Tailgates Down, with Meghan Haskins, Israel Saldana, Matt Kudirka, Jamie Nicholson, Lorraine D’Angelo Lee and our talented fill in for the show Jay Tullio and The Abe Froman Project with Justin Redden, Todd Boisvert, Tim Corrigan, Johnny Keys and Todd Boisvert. You guys make performing so fun! Thanks to Molly for putting up with me with all the planning and day of shenanigans and to some great friends for your consistent support… Dexter Avery Carcione, Jay Pillarella, Dawn Bailey, Amber K. Redden, Justin, Barbara Bain Rice, Tim and Kathleen Ann and Chris Manoogian.

Hope you go this far because I really want to thank all of YOU! The crazy bastids who partied with us all day! See you all at the social on Monday!

There’s probably more… I’ll stew over it for a bit and hope I didn’t forget anyone. So many great people to thank!

Ray

Yr7•291-366•2482•Carlie's Wish

I spent the day photographing a charity event for Carlie. Carlie is a local High School student, a talented musician/singer and is currently being treated for Ewings Sarcoma, a very rare and aggressive bone cancer usually found in children and young adults. The local music community led by Ray Auger held a concert today at Scioli’s in Milford. Raffles, Auction and entertainment by : Whiskey Church, Fringe Benefits, The Lynx, The Knuckleheads and Carlie herself. Thank you to all who came out, over $6K was raised, all the money will be used to support Carlie and her family during this time and assist with fulfilling her dream of having a music studio in her house. If you would like to contribute there is still a chance, feel free to contact me for more info.

Yr7•163-366•2354•Introducing Ellis Paul

Tonight Ellis Paul came to Milford, and I was honored to introduce him. First, my son took this photo, I do not get in many… so when I am in them they usually mean a lot. Thank you Dan for getting this moment for me. This is me inviting Ellis to the stage at Memorial Hall. This show was put on by Amped Up Promotions – which is Ray Auger and myself. We are proud of the work we put into this and tonight was perfect. Sold out crowd, beautiful weather, the Hall itself is a great backdrop, my wife and friends – Food by Barbie – catered it with desert, we had Gay Barboza wow the crowd by opening, with a few songs by Matt Zajac. I even got Ellis to take a one-bulb shot. If you joined us, thank you. We are already working on ideas for the next show, but something tells me this first one will stay with us. Thanks to all our family and friends who supported us, from well wishes, ticket purchases to helping with the chairs Jeff and Jay! Thank you Ellis.

The 2016 representatives Greater Milford Music Scene, this is our second “team” photo. Some new faces, many veterans, the photo stands for more that were not available today. The scene is special, I am honored to be just one of the documentarians. Get out and see these acts, you can follow the Local Lowdown published each week by WMRC and Ray Auger to see who is playing where. There is something for everyone, and you can’t go wrong, soon many of the venues that support these local artists will be displaying this photo. We sell the photo to anyone that will display it, 100% of the profits go to local charity. Last photo raised over $800 for the Milford Schools Music Program. If you have interest in having a print please contact me. Thanks to all who braved the cold to be part of this and the Black Box in Franklin for letting us use the stage.
