July 29 Tuesday
Medford, MA - Wright's Pond, 158 Elm St., Medford, MA - 6:00pm - 7:00pm - This is the Medford Family Network's Twentieth Anniversary year. This will be our thirteenth year playing for them. We love them.

Wright's Pond is typically for Medford residents only. The last few years, they've allowed our fans in even they're not from Medford. You need to tell them you're there to see the band. They've also had shuttles running from the Flynn Rink, 300 Elm Street; just up the road from Wright's Pond. I have not heard whether they will be doing that this year. If I can find out that news, I will post the information here.

If rain is an issue, we'll be at The Medford Council on Aging, 101 Riverside Avenue in Medford. This is also called the Medford Senior Center. Same bat time.

July 30 Wednesday
Lowell, MA - 11:00am - Boarding House Park, Lowell, MA - 40 French Street - This is a WONDERFUL place. Rain location is across the street at the Lowell High School.
