Hannah Gill & The Hours
Friday, June 23, 2017
Hannah Gill & The Hours will kick off the summer entertainment lineup, with the first free performance on Friday, June 23, 2017.
About Hannah Gill & The Hours
Hannah Gill & The Hours combines 70s lo-fi pop and rock with contemporary soul and blues and transforms them into sweet and sultry songs that overflow with feeling. Steered by soulful 19-year old vocal powerhouse and songwriter Hannah Gill combined with skilled guitarist, songwriter and arranger Brad Hammonds, the group offers up lush vocals and sparkling fretwork touched by improvisational jazz that gives the duo's hypnotic recordings and dynamic live performances otherworldly gravity. Hannah Gill & The Hours' first EP, The Water is a collection of songs about embracing life's adventures, breaking free from society's mold and finding personal freedom.
Brought together by their shared love of many musical genres and styles, Hammonds and Gill initially connected through a family friend, who felt their sensibilities and improvisational approach to songwriting and performing would click. The two enjoyed a profound creative chemistry and decided to officially come together as Hannah Gill & The Hours in 2015. Once Gill relocated to New York City, they brought a substantial collection of their songs to producers John White and Rich DeCiccio at Whitewater studios in Brooklyn. Mixed by multiple Grammy winner Tim Latham, this collection turned into their debut EP, The Water. Available now via iTunes, Amazon and Spotify!

The Band Apollo
Saturday, July 29, 2017
The second act in the free Summer Outdoor Concert Series will be The Band Apollo on Saturday, July 29, 2017.
About The Band Apollo
Nominated by The New England Music Awards for Best Maine Artist for 2014, The Band Apollo is Jonathan Johnston on lead vocals, Jonathan Truman (JTru) on drums, and Ben Packard on lead guitar. Their signature sound is attributed to frontman Johnston's recognizable vocals, (JTru) Truman's eclectic style of drumming, and Packard's assertive lead guitar work. The band draws influence from a variety of artists ranging from Muse, Audioslave, and Bruno Mars to Maroon 5, Frank Ocean, and John Mayer.
The Band Apollo's first EP, released in 2012, featured their first single "Bad Company", which received extensive radio play in Maine on WCLZ, WBLM and WCYY, and "Little Red Dress", which ranked #3 on WTOS's Homegrown Top Ten for 2012. The Band Apollo has consistently performed throughout New England, ranging from local bars and private parties to headlining college shows, outdoor festivals, and charitable events such as Maine's Walk to Stop Hunger. They have shared the stage with various notable acts, including the Pete Kilpatrick Band and Enter the Haggis.
Johnston and JTru have been playing music together since 2008 as the Jonathan Johnston Band. Packard joined the group in 2012 and they became known as The Band Apollo; a new name to embody their fresh approach to collaborative song-writing. The Band Apollo's debut EP was recorded at The Brown Owl Studio in Nashville, TN. It was produced by Grammy-nominated, Dove Award-winning Australian artist Grant Norsworthy, member of the bands Sonic Flood and Paul Colman Trio. The EP was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Darrell Lehman, a sound engineer for Mute Math and The Band Perry.
On December 8th, 2014, The Band Apollo released their groundbreaking CD, 'Soldier or a Spy'. The six song EP was recorded at Hearstudios in Camden, Maine during the summer of 2014. The new album was produced by Grant Norsworthy and recorded, mixed, and mastered by Darrell Lehman. It is available at Bull Moose stores throughout Maine and New Hampshire and via mail order at bullmoose.com. 'Soldier or a Spy' is also available on Amazon, Spotify, Google Play, and iTunes.
