ROCKPORT — Folks at Rockport Opera House danced in the new year at a sold-out show featuring local band The Right Track after fireworks over the harbor.

Despite a foggy night, downtown Rockport and Rockport Harbor were full of people ready to view the 6 p.m. fireworks, set off over the harbor, as part of the town’s New Year’s Eve celebration. Then the “Rockin’ in the New Year” show at the Opera House had patrons on the dance floor from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday night, Dec. 31.

The opening act was Maddie and Dan, an Appleton vocal and keyboard duo who played jazz favorites to set the mood.

Then came The Right Track, an 11-piece dance band based out of the Midcoast. The group played a variety of R&B, funk and soul music for an enthusiastic and packed dance floor.
