Orville Lee, incredibly talented singer and songwriter, will be the opening act starting at 6 p.m. The Boneheads will perform from 7-9 p.m. Fresh oysters, along with savory offerings from Blazing Tomato Woodfired Pizza and Mr. Ribs BBQ & Grill, will be available for purchase starting at 5 p.m. Stone Cove Catering will be on site with Sadie the Bar Car, selling craft beer, wine, and soft drinks. Bring your lawn chair or blanket. No coolers allowed.
The Boneheads are feature Bob Colwell (keyboards, vocals), Scott Eliot (bass, guitar, vocals), Dickie-Doo Hollis (drums, vocals), and Steve Jones (guitar, vocals). Based in southern Maine, this popular group’s unique blend of roots music includes folk, rock, blues, country, Cajun, and soul.
They have a full complement of original material in addition to an extensive playlist of covers, and enjoy mixing things up and surprising the audience. The Boneheads date from 1991 and have put out a number of albums that have been consistently praised by major publications.
