Tuesday Night is Dart Night at Grumpy's. Come on in with a couple friends and go head to head (or drink for drink...) with other like-minded folks. While you wait, there are always pool tables and a eclectic juke box to keep you occupied!
Thursday nights this summer, come on down and see The Commonwealth. They played a great gig last Thursday - their first time on stage at the Pub. This is a young band, and they have a great sound and a fun, energetic following. Come on down and support these guys! No Cover.
Friday Night we are taking a break from the blues and heading off in a different direction - The Memphis Rockabilly Band is in town for their first gig at Grumpy's. http://www.memphisrockabillyband.com/ Check back in a day or so for a feature on this great, entertaining band.
Saturday Night we welcome back Sweet Melissa with Chris "Stovall" Brown. http://www.myspace.com/sweetmelissawithchrisstovallbrown “…everything from softly swinging jazzy ballads to rip-roaring Texas blues-rock, and Sweet Melissa’s slightly smoky alto handles it all with aplomb. If there is one unifying feature to their sound, it is that she tends to give everything she sings a Memphis soul flavor, as if she were the last link to the days of Stax-Volt Records and Al Green and Little Milton were her musical ancestors. …her vocal the perfect mixture of grit and honey …the smooth soul in (her) delivery was magnificent."

We look forward to seeing you soon!

There was just a very good article in the Falmouth and Bourne Bulletin full of information about the amazing work the Gahan's have done since they lost their son, Jimmy, in the Station Nightclub Fire. Here's the link: http://www.wickedlocal.com/bourne/news/x765550850/A-promise-kept-Foundation-honors-the-spirit-of-Jimmy-Gahan
"What the foundation is about, says Jimmy’s father, is keeping alive the spirit of a young man who made friendship a core value in his life and encouraged others to do the same. The family’s statement on the foundation’s Web site says it best: “From those terrible days following the Station Nightclub fire in February of 2003, Carol and I made a promise to create something positive, beneficial and lasting.”
Five years later, it’s a promise that’s been kept."
Troy Clarkson, a blogger for the Falmouth Bulletin had this to say in his post on May 21:"When a family is able to rebound from the impacts of a horrific tragedy, it is touching and noteworthy. When that family is able to make a lasting impact on its community as a direct result of that tragedy, it is truly remarkable. Jim Gahan, father of the late Jimmy Gahan, who died in the Station Nightclub fire in Rhode Island in 2003, made an appearance before the selectmen recently to announce a $10,000 donation to the Recreation Department for work on the new athletic fields on Sandwich Road. The Jimmy Gahan Charitable Foundation has now raised and donated over $100,000 to Falmouth students and activities in Jimmy’s name. All of the money raised for the foundation goes directly to its charities. This is truly amazing work. If you are interested in donating or getting involved, contact the foundation at: www.jimmygahan.org."
Many people say that Carol "Ma" Gahan is the heart and soul of Grumpy's. That's a fact I think we can all agree on. Please consider donating an item for the auction and coming down to Grumpy's for an incredible event.

"Classic 60's Soul + R&B + Motown + 70's Dance/Funk + The James Brown Songbook + Jazz/Pop Standards = A great time for your event! "Soul Man" Delaware Floyd Like so many fine soul vocalists, Floyd began in the church choir as a youth, growing up in Ellsmere, Delaware. Also, like so many other talented singers, he gave up a promising musical career to get a "regular" job and raise a family. Now, with his children grown, he is back on stage, with a vengeance! His powerful gospel tinged voice energizes audiences wherever he goes. In recent years, he has appeared at such far-flung venues as The Funky Parrot club on Bourbon St. in New Orleans and the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. His heartfelt rendition of "One In A Million" will bring a lump to your throat, and you wont be able to stop your feet from dancing when he gets it on with the irrepressible beat of Tyrone Davis' "Can I Change My Mind". "
FREE tickets are available at Coffee Obsession (both locations), The Daily Brew, Woods Hole Market, and The Quarterdeck Restaurant. Stop in and check out these great businesses helping to support local music!

"Burlington Vermont based rock trio Silent Mind has been creating quite a stir in the Northeast. After years of touring, the band has settled into it what has become an original power rock trio with the ability to bring an exciting and powerful energy to any crowd or venue. By crossing modern and classic rock, the band creates a sound that is tight, sincere, and heavy hitting which they have branded "Collage Rock". Recently, the trio has been touring and hosting a series of special events to celebrate the release of their debut album "2012 Here We Come" released in November on Chakra-5-Records. The record has been a great success with impressive disc sales, fan requests, and attention from regional media. The recent success has proven Silent Mind is a major player in the music scene and shows no signs of slowing down.Silent Mind is lead by New Jersey native and Berklee College of Music graduate Jamie Bright on lead guitar and vocals, Jon "sizzle chest" Rizzo on smooth bass, and Boston boy Jay Baskowski holding it down on drums. Together the three make the most of every opportunity, making friends and memories at each and every show. Their antics and openness is contagious and their musicianship and professionalism is respected. Silent Mind uses music as the tool that connects them to the audience in helping to create a euphoric mental state for the audience as well as themselves, where problems disappear and the only thing that matters is making the next moment as good as the last, we call this "Silent Mind"."
