It was the Soul Box Band at Slap Shotz. A rocking blues band with a large following. I got the crowd up to pose for a picture with the band. It was a lot of fun! More band info: http://www.soulbox.biz

Doubleshot Boston, a hard hitting metal band played at Hajjar's over the weekend. The owner is Tillie Hajjar, 94 years young and greeting patrons since 1956. She welcomes everyone to her family restaurant, the favorite place for locals to dine and dance on the South Shore. I snapped a photo of her with the band.

The band is: Brian Stratton on guitar, bass, keys and vocals, Tony Rocks on guitar and vocals, Ken Reid on sax and percussion, Jeff Claassen on trumpet, Ronnie Caggiano on drums and vocals, Michael Troy on keys and vocals and Derek Gunn and Jeff Rosen on percussion.
