Berlin-Are you ready to Rock and Roll? Come out to enjoy the Mill City Revival Band performing songs and music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s at St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts on Friday, May 20 at 7 pm. Tickets are $12 adults, $6 for students and are available at the door.
The Mill City Revival Band began performing songs from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s because they felt that there was a void in bands who were keeping the music of those decades alive—and they still all enjoy getting together and sharing the music with others. They always select a wide range of songs and styles that showcase the multi-talents of the band members, especially songs that feature the Horn Section. The band’s home base is Lowell Massachusetts, which has long been known as the “Mill City”.
Carl Antifonario, a professional woodwind specialist who has toured with the United States Air Force Southern Command Band, formed the Mill City Revival Band four years ago with a great nucleus of experienced musicians and then added some great young horn players from the Berkley College School of Music. Utilizing horns as well as great vocals make this band stand out from the many oldies bands throughout New England. Combined with great showmanship and their fun way of interacting with audiences young and old, Mill City Revival Band brings a party atmosphere to the house, wherever they go.
The band boasts some of the best musicians and entertainers from the New England area including lead singer, Michael Anthony has been fronting bands for 20 years and has toured the New England area with his Neil Diamond Tribute Show.
Henry Ricard, Drummer and Singer, is a show by himself, who when performing, will sing lead, stand up and play drums all at the same time. Lead Guitar & Singer, Jimmy Merrick, better known as Mr. Rock and Roll has been playing the entire East Coast (Including Nashville) as well as Montreal, Canada singing lead and fronting Rock and Roll shows with his dancing guitar since 1968. Dick Lavallee, Keyboard and Backup Vocal, has been touring the New England area for 35 years as a multi-talented keyboard player as well as song stylist. Paul Orendorf, Bass and Alternate Drums, is an accomplished drummer and electric bass player, who has been playing with more contemporary style bands and has transitioned to Mill City with ease. Also, performing is Kyle Lambert on Trumpet and Fleugal Horn and Singer-Dancer-Trombonist, Molly Rose.
“When we booked Mill City Revival last fall, we hoped that the Gorham Mill would be fully operational by this time, but we are very glad to know that things are in place for a successful sale and hope it will happen soon. In the meantime, let s get together and celebrate the good old days-- “One Mill City to Another”, states Joan Chamberlain, Executive Director
