Bruce Marshal Group of Boston to perform at Center Theatre
DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — The Boston-area, guitar-driven Bruce Marshal Group will perform a mix of classic, pop-jazz and original rhythm and blues during a performance at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, at Center Theatre in Dover-Foxcroft, sponsored by Mayo Regional Hospital.
The band’s latest CD, “Misspent Youth” (2010), will have a special keepsake value to local fans because the cover bears the image of the Center Theatre facade with the band’s name on the marquee. The band performed at the theater in 2008 to a near-capacity crowd.
Tickets for the show featuring two 50-minute sets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door and may be purchased at local stores, the Chamber of Commerce, at Center Theatre or online at centertheatre.org or by calling 564-8943.
The Aug. 20 performance is the second of six live monthly “Saturday Night in Dover-Foxcroft” shows held on the third Saturday of each month, July to December, as a fundraising event for the Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce and the theater.
