Make Music Day Pub Crawl
12/21/2019 @ 9:00 pm - 12/22/2019 @ 12:00 am
After years of musical merriment on June 21, the spirit of Make Music Day comes around on December 21, the winter solstice. For Make Music Winter, music can pop up anywhere. Rounding the corner, you may see a herd of electric guitarists, a choir of medieval singers, or a percussive Puerto Rican parade coming down the street.
Mystic is part of International Make Music Day for the second year with a music and trivia-inspired pub crawl at four locations – Harp & Hound, Friar Tuck’s Tavern, Water Street Tavern and Captain Daniel Packer Inne. All within walking distance of each other in Historic Downtown Mystic. Each participating pub will have materials available for pick up, pub crawlers may pick up at any location but must end the evening at Captain Daniel Packer Inne for prizes.
With music at the center of the celebration, each venue offers terrific talent from local musicians. Happy and the Moonshine are featured at Harp & Hound; Marty & Friends at Water Street Tavern; J. Krak and Cairo at Friar Tuck’s Tavern and James Harris at Captain Daniel Packer Inne.
Happy and the Moonshine’s repertoire is an eclectic mix of music from the past nine decades! Vocalist Dave
DeAngelis can melt your heart with jazzy renditions of Gershwin classics, or stop you in your tracks with
powerful contemporary pop/rock hits–and everything in between. Michael Chicoria is a extravagant improv pianist, who seamlessly blends multiple genres–including: jazz/blues, Latin, classical, and rock and roll.
Marty Moroney is the talented, always-playing bassist from New Jersey. Mystic is lucky enough to now call him a local . He can be seen playing with Green Tea, Mystc Dead, Phil Adams Band. Marty becomes the heart of any band he plays with – shredding on bass and writing fantastic lyrics and music. He brings friends together to create a fantastic sound!
J-Krak & Cairo are a two-man band covering “greatest hits” nostalgia from the 70s – 00s. They are known for their huge repertoire and comedic banter as well as their “all-request” shtick.
James Harris is a guitarist and vocalist with over 20 years of experience. He specializes in acoustic classic and
modern rock and plays all over New England. James Graduated from Berklee College Of Music in Boston. He teaches electric, acoustic, and classical guitar and music theory to students of all ages at his studio in Stonington.
In addition to the music, participants will answer trivia questions; enjoy a beverage; do a small scavenger hunt style game and interact with the musicians at each venue. There is no charge to participate!
