Sunday Rockabilly Concert in the Garden; 92 Congress Street – Start of a Tradition?


Sean Mencher & His Rhythm Kings on the Hill Today

By Carol McCracken (Post # 565)

Sean Mencher & His Rhythm Kings put on a delightful rockabilly concert for the enjoyment of an audience in the garden at 92 Congress Street this afternoon. A spontaneous concert, Mencher said that if conditions are right, it might become a traditional Sunday @ noontime garden event.

Three members of the five member group played for over an hour early this afternoon. They played such favorites as: Bye Bye Blues, Ramblin Man, Folsom Prison, Don’t Get Around Much Anymore, Flatland Saturday Night and many others.

Matt Young played the harmonica, Sean the guitar and Derek Moniz, the bass. Sean did most of the solo vocals. Last night the group performed at the new Bayside Bowl. This Friday night, the group will perform at Geno’s at 9 pm.

In the meantime, if conditions are right, perhaps there will be a Sean Mencher Et Al concert next week in the garden at 92 Congress Street – the office of the Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization.

Check it out!
