Brian Maes Band

This Friday, July 13, the Horn Pond Summer Concert Series will continue with a performance by the Brian Maes Band. The concert will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. at Ice House Park; along the flat grassy area of Sturgis Street. This concert is sponsored by Michael de la Maza.
In addition to their own material, the Brian Maes Band will throw in some well-known classic rock covers that they have a connection to. In the past, Maes toured with Peter Wolf, John Cafferty And The Beaver Brown Band, and RTZ. “It’s been very exciting to have people come out and play our originals, and then play something from the past that we have a connection to,” Maes said.
