Our local band! It includes 4 Swampscott residents:  Whisky and Nancy Wolinski, Mike McClung, and Shauna Guidici, plus two more Boston-area musicians.  They have recently revamped their lineup and their repertoire, and now include a mix of jazz, rock, & funk, with covers of classic tunes by bands like Steely Dan,  Earth, Wind & Fire and the Beatles.  The kind of music that many of us grew up with and love!



Chasing Blue


WEDNESDAY, JULY 13 - 6:00 to 8:00 PM


Musically similar to SouthEast Expressway, but even smoother and more crowd pleasing, Chasing Blue combines elements of Americana and swing with bluegrass. Laura Orshaw, the amazing fiddle player in last year’s bluegrass band, plays mandolin in Chasing Blue  (all other players are different).   They play at major Bluegrass festivals and just headlined in Miami!
