"This is the best room in the whole region to see a show" Bucky Lewis states. "We decided to build on the success of last summer's shows on Thursday nights and move this year to Fridays, bringing in some very funny comedians also to make it a memorable laughter filled experience for locals and tourists alike. It's also exciting to have Sam Adams and Curious Traveler on board as partners in this summer series."
Bucky Lewis presents high spirited one-man show with a cast of many dysfunctional characters. "This summer is especially exciting, because I am in the middle of recording my 6th album: 'Loose Screws' with some very funny new routines and songs. The album will be coming out in the fall,'' Lewis says.
Joining Lewis onstage this Friday night August 2 will be Jim Lauletta, who has been headlining clubs, colleges and cruise ships for many years. He has been seen on NBC, HBO, Comedy Central and countless appearances in Las Vegas and Atlantic City

LACONIA — The Larry Carsman Duo will perform at Pitman's Freight Room on Thursday, August 1 at 8 p.m.
Admission $12 and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Master Song Interpreter/Jazz Guitarist Larry Carsman moved to Boston in 1971 to cofound the James Montgomery Band. Larry's influences span a rich and diverse range of vintage and modern artists including Mose Allison, BB King, Buddy Guy, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Bruce Springsteen, Carlos Jobim and Gilberto Gil. He selects and arranges great songs from traditional and modern Jazz , blues, classical, Brazilian, folk and soul.
He will be performing with saxophonist, bandleader, master teacher/performer, community activist, and photographer Arni Cheatham, who personifies the description of a local Jazz Hero in every way. Shortly after arriving in Boston from Chicago in 1969, he began staunchly advocating for local music as a founding board member of the Jazz Coalition, and as a stalwart of the Boston scene for more than 40 years, he remains totally engaged today.
During his 12 years as vice president of the Jazz Coalition Arni created, administered and secured funding for JazzEd, which aimed to bridge racial divides by bringing jazz into Boston's public schools during the desegregation process.
