Boulevard Concerts


The last Boulevard concert at the Trolley Shelter took place (with no thunderstorm) on Thursday, August 22nd, with a wonderful performance of Motown music by Nickel Jukebox.  The perfect music to get the crowd on their feet dancing, all with wonderful community spirit.  Arthur, our 90 year old resident dancer, took first prize for the best dancer at all four concerts. New England Lemonade, Palagi Bros. Ice Cream, and Muzzled Hot Dogs where on site to provide the perfect refreshments for the evening.  Thanks to Senators Goldin and Nesslebush and our BPC supporters for helping to make these concerts possible.  Thanks to Wendy Klein performing with Alebreke, Miss Wensday, the students from Classical High “Classical Gas”, Nickel Jukebox for the great performances.
