The Love Dogs Headline THE BLACK BOX - June 8

THE BLACK BOX New England Artist Series presents The Love Dogs, featuring rockin' rhythm and blues, on Saturday, June 8 at 8 PM at the downtown Franklin venue. With barrelhouse boogie-woogie piano, stinging Fender guitar, and a red-hot horn section of trombone and alto, tenor and baritone saxes, The Love Dogs also showcases a swinging rhythm section that Blues Review magazine called "the best in the business" and a charismatic front man with one of the biggest blues voices around. Based out of Boston, the septet recently celebrated its 20th year.

Combining elements of jump blues, New Orleans R&B, and early rock 'n' roll, The Love Dogs have played juke joints, festivals, and concert halls across the U.S. and Canada and on both sides of the Atlantic. They've released four CDs. Many of the cuts have been blues radio favorites and several of the Dogs' signature original songs have been used in feature films and on television. Voted "Best New England Band" by Blues Audience magazine, The Love Dogs is part Rat Pack party, part 20th century musical encyclopedia, and part revival meeting.

A full bar is available. The home of the Franklin Performing Arts Company, THE BLACK BOX is located at 15 West Central Street. 

For tickets and more information, visit or call (508) 528-3370. You can follow THE BLACK BOX on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

"NOAA predicts near-normal 2019 Atlantic hurricane season"

"NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is predicting that a near-normal Atlantic hurricane season is most likely this year. This outlook forecasts a 40% chance of a near-normal season, a 30% chance of an above-normal season and a 30% chance of a below-normal season. The hurricane season officially extends from June 1 to November 30. 
For 2019, NOAA predicts a likely range of 9 to 15 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 4 to 8 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 2 to 4 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher). NOAA provides these ranges with a 70% confidence. An average hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which 6 become hurricanes, including 3 major hurricanes."

Franklin School for the Performing Arts Alum to Tour With "The Spongebob Musical"

Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) alumnus Garrett Gleason will hit the road this fall as a guitarist on the national tour of The Spongebob Musical. Originally from Franklin, Gleason began his musical training at FSPA at a young age. He studied musical theater, voice, and more before focusing his studies on guitar with master instructor Mark White at FSPA.

After high school, Gleason obtained his B.A. in Jazz Studies at the University of Maryland School of Music under direction of Chris Vadala. He then moved outside Washington D.C. to embrace freelance studio music work, performance opportunities, and music education, through which he developed a stronger passion for world music and fusion. He has recorded with international artists such as Plini and Adaora, performed with international artists like Samini and Uche Agu and at prestigious venues such as the Kennedy Center and Strathmore Mansion, opened for artists such as TTNG, Tricot, and Bent Knee with his original music.

In 2017 and 2018, Garrett returned to his Franklin-roots as the guitarist for Electric Youth and the Boston Showband on their European concert tours. This summer, he will join them on the road once again to perform across the U.K., Switzerland, France, and Italy. Gleason’s latest album for trio, “Well,” was released this past fall.

The explosively imaginative production of The Spongebob Musical will launch at PROCTORS in Schenectady, NY this September before bringing Bikini Bottom and its beloved residents to previously announced engagements across the country. Massachusetts audiences will be able to hear Gleason in action October 15-27 at the Boch Center. For tickets and more information, visit

Drink Pink!
Saturday, June 1

2-5 PM
Drink Pink, our annual fundraiser for cancer care and research, is almost here! It's OUR favorite event of the year, but if you're wondering why it should be on YOUR calendar, here's why it definitely should:

#1 Drink Pink is FUN! We invite all our favorite people, and a store full of fabulous people, grooving to the music of Franklin's own Kai Olsson, is definitely a good time.

#2 Drink Pink is TASTY! Eleven of our amazing vendors, pouring samples of everything from rosé to red, white, and bubbly, plus signature cocktails, spirits and craft beer. AND food from Teddy Gallagher's.

#3 You REALLY need an adult sippy cup! This year's 'tickets' for Drink Pink are nifty little insulated cups that keep beverages cold or hot for 2 hours. (If you need more time than that, I don't think we can help you.)

#4 The raffle prizes are CRAZY good this year. Tickets to a show at The Black Box. An Archer Roose cooler complete with delicious cans of wine. A box of Everlasting Roses, real roses guaranteed to last at least one year. And more!

#5 THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE. The American Cancer Society is waging a many-sided war against cancer. Research. Patient Care. Palliative care. Lodging near treatment. Family assistance. Education. Testing. All of these are incredibly necessary. All of them cost money. We want to give them some. 100% of ticket sales will be donated to Relay for Life* of Western Norfolk County. 100% of raffle tickets, ditto. And both Pour Richard's and Teddy Gallagher's will also be donating a portion of our sales. 

This is a good time for a GREAT cause. Please join us and bring your friends.

Dog-friendly. 21+ * Relay for Life is the fundraising arm of ACS
Thank you for trusting us with your beverage business. Please share this email with friends who are interested in delicious wine, beer, and spirits. (Keeping all the good stuff for yourself is bad karma.)

"Milford High School “an incredible host” for the event"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"Launching her longest javelin throw yet at 11 feet, 10 inches, Cape Cod resident Rachael Abudaram landed first place in the Division 1, tier 16 spear-tossing event at the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association/Special Olympics Massachusetts Unified Track and Field State Championship on Wednesday. 
Her excitement at the accomplishment on the Milford High School fields radiated as she ascended the podium to receive her ribbon. 
“I’m not the same [as most people],” said Abudaram, 17, wearing a blue Riverview School jersey, her blond-dipped bangs restrained by a pink headband. She’s an incoming senior at the boarding school in East Sandwich, and also enjoys swimming, specializing in freestyle."
