BREWSTER – We contend when historians discover the current Cape Cod music scene, they will see this Cavalcade (videos below) on par with the great rock concert movies of all time – those like Woodstock, Monterey Pop & The Last Waltz.
Here is A Cavalcade of Cape Cod Musicians – in five parts (or seven, if you follow the real script).
The Christmas Cavalcade For The Homeless, a concert by local several Cape Cod bands, raised more than $10,000 for the good work of the Housing Assistance Corporation.
According to Fred Boak, organizer of the event, there was a crowd of almost 300 people for the show at Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster last Sunday.
And what a show it was. The following is not a chronological look at the show. It is, instead, a sampler in an order we hope gives you a sense of what the concert is about, even if that order makes sense only to us.
But if you want to follow along to the true script…..
First watch Pierre Beauregard with, “Trim, Trim A Tree”
Then, be sure to watch The Ticks, “It’s A Wonderful Life.”
After you have followed those instructions, it gets easier. Just follow along from Part 1 to Part 5. We would have put it all in one file but it may not have uploaded until next Christmas.
And besides, we believe that the internet can often be Short Attention Span Theater. So here are some bite-sized nuggets from the best holiday concert on Cape Cod… or probably anywhere.
You really should attend next year to see things such as the 4-plus hours we edited out. These videos can only hope to represent the overall joyful community vibe. Plus, if you live on Cape Cod, you understand how important the cause of housing is, and why this concert matters beyond even fun. And if you love the local music scene, we know you understand… these are geniuses and they live here.
Most of all, thanks to Fred Boak, who organized this year’s concert. For this particular Scrooge, you make the season almost bearable.
If you see our banner in these videos, that is because Cape Cod Wave was a sponsor of the concert.
