LACONIA — Ton of Blues will perform Friday, September 27 at 8 p.m. at Pitman's Freight Room.
Taking a modern, aggressive approach to the old school blues format, A Ton of Blues burst onto the New England Blues circuit in the summer of 2010. With a sound reminiscent of Buddy Guy backed up by the Fabulous Thunderbirds, they play with a passion and drive that makes you rumble like a runaway freight train while you fumble to buckle your seat belt.
Band members include Scott LeBlanc (Guitar, Vox); Jeff Lorenzen (Bass Guitar), Al Clark (Drums), Mike Kelly (Vocals,Harp).
Admission is $12. Pitman's is a BYOB venue. For more information visit www.pitmansfreightroom.com or call 603-527-0043

MEREDITH — On Sunday, September 29 Cider Bellies at Moulton Farm will be hosting a Day of PDA. A Day of PDA is when we show one of our favorite charities some love by "dough"nating 100% of our proﬁts from doughnut sales to them.
This Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cider Bellies will be showing some love to the WLNH Children's Auction, an annual event held every December in Laconia which over the past 31 years has raised over $2 million dollars for local charities.
In addition to smaller organizations and families helped throughout the years by the WLNH Children's Auction, annual contributions are given to many community-based organizations throughout Central New Hampshire. These include: The Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region, Citizen Santa Fund, Community Health and Hospice Young Families program, Greater Lakes Child Advocacy Center, Lakes Region Daycare, Health First Family Care of Franklin, Salvation Army, etc.
The Children's Auction is not the only event or charity that Cider Bellies has been a part of or donated to. In the past it has held similar fundraising days for UNICEF, Water.Org, the Lakes Region Food Pantry and many others.
