The story of how the Tighten / étranger line up came together is an interesting one. Both artists are local guys and the musical connections with Matt Scott and Jake Rivers were just too good to pass up!
Sometimes I like to pretend that Franconia Notch is like The Wall in GoT, we are on the northern side of it, just south and trees are greener, theres more cars, shopping malls...

On May 1st Chris Roma, New Hampshire Native, started mile one of the 2800-mile Appalachian Trail to help provide underserved communities with clean drinking water. He has completed the Pacific Crest Trail (2,650 miles), the Continental Divide Trail (3,100 miles), and is onward to triple crown. During his journey, he realized the importance of having clean water and wanted to do something unique for his final thru-hike. Chris is partnering with MissionCleanWater, a nonprofit organization working to provide accessible clean drinking water and sanitation to underserved communities.

The Friday before Halloween was our biggest show to date! Thanks to everyone that came out dressed up and rocked out! Big hugs to Time Out Timmy and Mad Cat Habitat and Tyler Blain House for making this night something for the history books!
Tonite is Jazz Nite! These cats are killing! Their sound fills The Loading Dock in warm round edges punctuated by Ben Salomon's amazing drum solos. Donny Cail and Dennis Cote lead the charge with beautiful tone. Hopefully Chris Cote will sit in on trumpet, he added the perfect amount of contrast to the shape of the tunes. Jazz standards and not so standard tunes from the 50s and 60s classics.
Tors here! Full disclosure on how The Loading Dock operates and covers it's operating costs. If you think there is a way we can improve what we are doing please let me know! There's a show tonight, live music will make you happy.
Cancer survivors & patients get in for free tonight, doors open at 7:30 and music starts at 8pm sharp! Bring your own food and beverages. All ages!
Tors here. I was a New Yorker working as am AMC fall caretaker in NH when 9/11 happened. The text after the jump was taken directly from my little Rhodia note pad.
Recently we have teamed up with Junction Magazine, from White River Junction, to support BANDADE. BANDADE is a charitable business that taps local popular musicians to help raise money to aid in the fight against cancer.
Two more shows this month! Cobra Fantastic combines P-Funk, Zappa and Sun-Ra, horns and a big sound, this Sunday 8/20. All our shows start at 8pm in the summer! 8/25 Friday is the debut of a new local band called Atlas Key. Brainchild of Ben Salomon from Northern Lights Music they fuze EDM/Electronica and Folk. Opening up, hitting at 8pm sharp are The Jowas. 90s inspired garage rock from local guys fresh out of high school. They are super high energy and really fun!
