Concert Series Continues with the band Speaker for the Dead

Thursday, July 05, 2012

 

The Joyful Concert series continues this Friday with a performance by the band Speaker for the Dead.  The Shining Force Philharmonic will open the show.  

Lead by founder and front man Greg Mckillop, http://sftdp.tumblr.com/" target="_blank">Speaker for the Dead is a band of wide-ranging genres including punk, folk, rock and more. It even at times becomes a16-piece brass band. This is because of their incredibly unique performance style that often involves people joining the band in the middle of a tour or during a show itself. For this reason, they often do not know what style of music they will end up playing at a particular show. They welcome all instruments and skill levels.

The band's goal is to simply have fun. The band draws from all over the country but is based in Worcester. The group has released eleven albums independently, including seven last year. Their ultimate mission is to help support and promote fun and safe creativity through inexpensive concerts open to everyone. Though this concert is free, the members always welcome donations.

The Joyful Concert series will be at the New England Dream Center every Friday at noon until August 31st. The purpose of the series is to encourage and provide enjoyment to those adults affected by neurological disorders.  For more information click here.

The event will be held from 12-1 at the New England Dream Center, 5 Chestnut Street, Worcester. It is free and open to all ages.
