Once again, on Tuesday, August 21st, 2018 it’s time to celebrate our community and the arts with Transperformance 28: AmperBands!, THE end-of-the-summer music festival at Pines Theater-Look Park. This year we will celebrate connection, collaboration and the power of performing together with Transperformance 28: Amperbands! Your favorite local acts will take the Pines Theater stage to perform 10 minutes of material from dynamic duos to famous families to superstars and their trusty backing bands. Featured AmperBands include: 

Colorway as Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Mary Jane Jones as Ike & Tina Turner, Aloha Steamtrain as Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars, Steve Westfield and the Lonesome Brothers as Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Soul Magnets as Sly & the Family Stone, Fancy Trash as Paul McCartney & Wings, Zip Cody & Friends as Adam & the Ants, Appalachian Still as Steve Earle & the Dukes, King Radio as Simon & Garfunkel, Eric Olsson and Free Range Cats as Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention, Page Six as K.C & the Sunshine Band, Johnny Memphis Band as Toots & the Maytals, Wishbone Zoe as Siouxsie & the Banshees, Volstead Act as Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Flathead Rodeo as Bill Haley & the Comets, Bruce Mandaro as Derek & the Dominos, Jerks on the Loose as Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris. Come celebrate 28 years of bringing our community members together to support music and the arts!

Food will be available from La Veracruzana Mexican RestaurantBart’s Ice Cream and other local restaurants. Per request of Look Park: No Pets, No Coolers and No Beverages please. Look Park charges a $5 special events vehicle entry fee for all vehicles without season passes. A portion of the proceeds support arts enrichment programs in the Public Schools of Northampton, Leeds, and Florence.

Each year in August the Northampton Arts Council and the Parent Teacher Organizations of Northampton’s public school system join forces to raise funds for arts enrichment in the schools and for the ArtsEZ grant program. 

The original concept for Transperformance was for local bands to take on a persona of another established nationally recognized act and perform or “Transperform” their bands’ style. The acts that are chosen are done thematically, such as Transperformance 22 “Food Groups” (Heather Maloney as Amy Winehouse) or Transperformance 17 “Color By Numbers” (Primate Fiasco as Pink Floyd) or Transperformance 23 “Beyond Bob” (Rusty Belle as Bob Dylan). Over the years Transperformance has evolved and tribute style performances have become acceptable if not the norm.

Independent Music Award winner and Colorway guitarist, F Alex Johnson is back at one of the most unique places to see live music in the area: Fort Hill Brewery in Easthampton, Mass. On Saturday, April 14 at 3pm come see Alex perform two full sets of songs from his twenty-seven years of making music in the valley on the stage of Fort Hill’s new music room. 

Since it’s inception in 2014 Fort Hill has carved out a niche for themselves hosting local legends like Ray Mason, Bruce Korona and Wildcat O’Halloran on a regular basis early and free (and all ages) every week. Alex has become a bit of a staple at the brewery over the past two years where he is fond of imbibing some of the nation’s top rated tap water while playing to both beer aficionados and the under 21 crowd alike. 

Fort Hill Brewery is one of the areas best new places for fresh, craft beer made on premises. 

From their website: Our goal is to provide the Pioneer Valley with the best traditional German-style lager for a clean, refreshing taste you’ll always come back to. All of our beers follow the German purity law of Reinheitsgebot, meaning that our beers contain only four ingredients: water, malt, hops, and yeast. 

Not to mention they are the #2 thing to do in Easthampton according to Trip Advisor.
