Above: This week’s act, The Rampage Trio, is known as a “high energy, blues-rock boogie, dance band”. (image left cropped from 2014 concert photo by SCAC, right from bostonbands.com)

The Rampage Trio will play the second Southborough Summer Concert this season. Weather permitting, that takes place this Thursday, June 28th.

The free, family-friendly concert takes place at the Neary School fields (53 Parkerville Road) from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. As always, the concert is on the lawn. So, bring blankets/chairs, and bug spray.

For each concert, the rain date is the following week. That means, this concert could be moved to July 5th. (I’ll try to notify on the blog if I learn it is being postponed. But you can check yourself on the date by calling 508-485-0710 and press 8.)

Dinner is being handled the same as last year. You can still bring your own picnic to the concert. But you can also expect food vendors at each event. This session features Travelin Bones (with BBQ and Ribs) and Yummy Mummy (selling desserts).

Of course, since it’s a concert, you’ll want to know what you can expect to hear. Next week’s band describes itself as:

a high energy, blues-rock boogie, dance band featuring singer-songwriter-guitarist, Brian M. Owens, singer-bassist, John Davies and singer-drummer, Mike Oppedisano. . .

Their music is played regularly on New England radio stations as well as stations across the country, Europe, Australia and Japan.

I always say the music speaks louder than words. So, here’s a video from the band’s performance at a Town concert in Barnstable two summers ago:
