Rockin’ 4 Vets, a New England based non-profit, continues doing what it has for the last several years. Taking its new name, literally, it produces concerts in locations throughout New England to assist veterans.
During this summer, it will again be presenting concerts outside at the Kowloon in Saugus, MA, where it began doing shows in 2021. Due to the success of those shows, the facility was added a larger stage along with upgraded sound and lights, to handle this year’s line-up of performers.
Kowloon, always a place known for its food, has created a comfortable environment to enjoy these events in. It improved the layout and the seating options available to ticket holders. All shows are general admission, but people are given the opportunity to sit at small tables, for privacy, larger seating tables for groups or on the outside patio set ups for larger groups.
All shows are produced by Alive & Kicking Production for Rockin’ 4 Vets. Proceeds raised through this series will be awarded to several Veteran’s support organizations at the conclusion of the series. Rockin’4 Vets has been a staunch supporter of Vets issues most related to PTSD, addiction, and homelessness.

The Fat City Band – The Fat City Band, 2018 Inductees into The New England Music Museum Hall of Fame, remains committed to one central idea – “Music Should Be Fun!” TFCB has had the good fortune to be able to write, record, and perform their own unique style of Blues, Roadhouse Rock, Jazz, and New Orleans Style R&B for all their fans and friends alike from coast to coast and beyond.
TFCB, a seven-piece band, features a lead vocalist/harmonica player, drummer, lead guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, slide trombone and tenor saxophone! They have trotted the globe and have a large New England following. While many remain in their seats to listen to their great sound, others feel compelled to get up and dance, and the R&B Café has room for both, along with fantastic acoustics.
