New Year's Eve Fireworks Blues Cruise
December 31, 2009
Join us for the 5th annual New Year's Eve Fireworks Blues Cruise with Chris Stovall Brown & Madeleine Hall! The boat will start boarding at the Quincy Shipyard dock at 8:00 PM, and then offer another pick-up at Boston's Central Wharf/New England Aquarium dock at 9:15 PM. Enjoy the views of the Boston skyline while we cruise around Boston Harbor! Dancing, free hors d'ouvres, and cash bar fill the evening until midnight, when we have the Best view of Boston's New Year's Eve fireworks! This year's entertainment is spectacular...Chris Stovall Brown has been playing music since the age of six when his parents came home with a set of bongo drums, which he taught himself to play in a matter of days. Adding banjo, mandolin, lap steel and resonator guitar to his arsenal of instruments made him decide that he wanted to quit playing drums, and in 1969 he started to concentrate on harp and guitar as his main instruments. Brown is one of New Englands most versatile and underrated guitarists, and he is also a master at sensitively accompanying vocalists. This might stem in part from his many years leading the band behind R&B singer Madeleine Hall. Madeleine is a Boston-based Rhythm & Blues singer/songwriter with 17 years of experience in the music business. A former Boston Music Award Nominee, Madeleine recently re-emerged from a five year sabbatical during which time she became a mother to her beautiful daughter Raina and gained a fresh approach to her music. Together, Chris Stovall Brown and Madeleine Hall provide one of the best one-two punches on the Boston blues scene. Don't miss this spectacular event!
