Award-winning singer/songwriter, Allen Estes, wrote Tammy Wynette's top 40 hit "Next To You", "Where'd They Go" (the official song of the City of Gloucester) and songs for The Souls of the Sea musical. While working as a songwriter in Nashville, Allen practically invented the genre "Americana" and you'll hear influences from pop, rock, folk, blue-grass and country.
Allen's newest band features multi-platinum artist David Brown on guitar (David Brown has recorded and toured with Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Phoebe Snow, Dr. John, Peter, Paul & Mary, Julian Lennon, Graham Parker, Bob James, Garland Jefferies and many others), Fairport Convention founder Dave Mattacks on drums (Dave Mattacks recorded and toured with Paul McCartney, Elton John, George Harrison, Jimmy Page, Richard Thompson, Susan Tedeschi and many others), Matt Leavenworth on fiddle, Steve Burke on keyboards and Wolf Ginandes on Bass.
It’s been several years since you’ve been able to see Allen with a full, six-piece band and this rare assemblage of extraordinary talent may not come together again for another few years.
Allen has produced over a dozen albums and his songs have been recorded by Tammy Wynette, Shania Twain, Dave Mallett, Tom Wopat and The Judds. He has toured with/and opened for Bonnie Raitt, J. Geils, Tim McGraw, America, Jose Feliciano, Reba McEntire, Waylon Jennings, Kenny Chesney, Tricia Yearwood, Livingston Taylor, Robert Palmer, Jonathan Edwards, Tom Rush and Earl Scruggs, among many others.
Allen has made numerous TV appearances. Earlier this month he was filmed singing his hit "Not With Ya Hands" about iconic Gloucester fisherman, Howard Blackburn, for the premiere of next season's TV Series Wicked Tuna. Allen is also the host of Local Music Seen with Allen Estes on Cape Ann TV, on which he interviews local and national music stars, including the band Poco, Jon Butcher, Charlie Farren, Louise Mosrie and the Godfather of punk, Willie Alexander.
Winner of the Independent Music World Series New England and voted Best Independent Act of New England, Allen and his band always give a captivating performance that brings audiences to their feet.
Dave Foley's Fabulous Mustangs play Foley's original music plus the greatest country hits from the 40s, 50s and 60s ... with a tinge of a 70s hit, here and there. Sounds like back when country was western.

When Foley opened for REO Speedwagon at the Cape Cod Melody Tent this summer, Shane Rohane of the Cape Cod Times wrote, "I was impressed with his swagger; he could jive and play ..."
Less than 24 miles from Boston, the historic Larcom Theatre is conveniently located in downtown Beverly, MA only 3 miles from 128 at 13 Wallis Street, with plenty of free parking (see map).
This gracious showplace was built, in 1912, on the birth site of one of America’s most widely read nineteenth century poetesses, Lucy Larcom.
The Larcom Theatre's grand opening advertised that its interior was lit completely by electricity.
After seven years of wowing audiences with his turn-of-the-lastcentury- style stage magic production at the 1920 Cabot Street Cinema Theatre (just 4 blocks away), Cesareo Pelaez, the founder of the Le Grand David stage magic ensemble, led the purchase of the Larcom in 1984 and immediately set to work restoring its pristine beauty.
The Beverly Historical Society recognized Cesareo with an award for the integrity and authenticity of his restoration. When Cesareo finished his work there, the Larcom’s elegant horseshoe balcony, antique pressed tin ceilings and original silk wall coverings once again took you back in time to an age when American life moved more slowly and more deliberately.
Cesareo had a great love for antique theatres and is the one man who can be thanked for the preservation of both the Cabot Street Cinema Theatre and the Larcom Theatre. Today the Larcom once again opens its doors and beckons you to enter its historic world.
There is plenty of free parking at the municipal parking lot on Bow Street, about 150 feet away and at the City Hall parking lot about half a block away. You do not have to feed the meters after 5pm.Click here for detailed directions to the historic Larcom Theatre.
