Music Scene Artists & Bands

Please add your local band and musician info and links to the comments section.  I will then add a live link on this page to your site.  You can add (50’s 60’s70’s, 80’s) and current (NOW) band info here! Many local bands played at the Grog on Middle St and other charity events at the Masonic Temple on Green St.


While you continue to visit listen to some Lost Music of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.  Remember the songs you first heard on AM, well here they are. This is my interpretation of lost one hit wonders, with some more popular ones mixed in! Hear the music!

    Remember “The Shadows”? During the mid to late sixties we played just about everywhere locally. From the Masonic Temple to the Moose hall, NHS dances, to all the clubs at Salisbury Beach(including the “Surf”), and Hampton Beach. We all graduated from NHS ’67-68. Still get together and play at concerts every summer.

    I’ll try to come up with some photos. More Shadows info: Brian Chase(a Shadow 1968-69), Bill Roberts(1967-69) and Oodie Smith(1967-69), all have passed away. But the three original Shadows, Myself, John Hill, and John Lowell, along with Teddy Stanwood(1965-67) still perform every summer. Look for us this summer!
