This is going to be the block party of the century! The Blue Shamrock is throwing an outdoor block party at the corner of Market St. & Palmer St. right in downtown Lowell. Two of New England’s premier tribute bands will provide the entertainment for the evening’s festivities. Music will start promptly at 6:00pm and conclude at midnight. Admission is $10 and can only be purchased at the door, so get down there early… See you on Shakedown!

First up is Rhode Island based Hope Road, a tribute band recreating the music, the passion, and the vibe of Bob Marley & The Wailers. Each member of this group has a deep respect for the music and the group we are paying tribute to. Bob Marley & The Wailers created music that inspired, empowered and sometimes overwhelmed audiences. Our mission is to bring that music to listeners with an intensity and a positive energy that they can’t help but enjoy and embrace. Check out Hope Road on Facebook:


Then Lowell’s own Alligator Wine will close out the night with a set of music in tribute to the Grateful Dead. Alligator Wine is made up of an all-star cast of characters from Lowell, MA whose intention is to re-interpret the music of the Grateful Dead and apply a very personal signature to the music that has so inspired us all over the years. Each member of the project has been an active member of the Lowell music scene for many, many a moon including Mike Dion of Hot Day at the Zoo, Sparky Warsnip & John Normindin of Kweejeebo, Lee Sullivan of Electric Donkey, Matt Siopes of Uncle Jam and the War Babies, and Gil Feeney of Spaceship Aristotle.
