Old Sloop Coffeehouse will present Upstate in concert Friday, May 31 at 7:30 PM at the
handicap-accessible First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St.
Upstate is an adventurous group of young musicians who take an uncommonly honest and
personal look at the world they inhabit and the experiences they encounter. Singers Mary
Kenney, Melanie Glenn, and Allison Olender sing with a joyous vocal blend and bring a playful
spirit of sisterhood to their performance. Harry D’Agostino on bass and Dean Mahoney on cajón
provide a rollicking rhythm background and complete the intoxicating sonic stew. Upstate’s
music mixes folk, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock and roll, and their shows are contagious and fun.
Over its six year history, the band has played in more than thirty states, from intimate house
concerts to prominent festival stages, including Mountain Jam, Frendly Gathering, Green River
Festival, and Otis Mountain Get Down. The band has opened for Cory Henry, Phox, Marco
Benevento, The Felice Brothers, Commander Cody, Marcus King Band, and many others.
Advance tickets are $15. Visit the website at oldsloopcoffeehouse.org, John Tarr Store in
Rockport, or The Bookstore of Gloucester. The suggested contribution at the door is $18 for
adults, $12 for those 65 and older, $5 for those 12 and under, and $36 for families.
