Music into the night at Waldoboro Day

Jun 12, 2014
Mid Life Crisis will play this year’s Waldoboro Day street dance.

Waldoboro — The annual community celebration of Waldoboro Day will begin 7 a.m. and end 11 p.m. Saturday, June 21, in the village; see the schedule below for all the events.

Beginning at 4 p.m., there will be live music to keep the second half of the event going to well after dark — a dark that will be punctuated by fireworks around 9 p.m.

The folk, blues and rock music performances will be held right downtown, sponsored by the Waldoboro Business Association.

First up from 4 to 5 p.m. will be Bristol Rock, a local band that plays popular hits from the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s — leaning a bit more on the ‘60s era, including many “one hit wonders.”

From 5 to 6 p.m., Meteroa will present music that often goes even farther back in time. The traditional folk trio features three veteran performers — Kat Logan, Will Brown and Jim Loney — combining talents, harmonies and instruments and performing folk, blues, Americana and original music.

From 6 to 7 p.m., The King Bees, Midcoast Maine’s newest blues band, will take the stage for the first time. The blues is always a popular genre in Maine, and the band pays homage to classic American artists such as Muddy Waters and Albert King.

The Waldoboro Day-concluding street dance gets underway at 7:30 p.m. Mid Life Crisis, aka MLC, has been playing rock ‘n’ roll music-to-dance-to, from classics to modern hits, for seven years. Rain location for the street dance, which runs to 11 p.m., will be the Waldoboro Fire Station on Route 1.
