Creekers Jamboree: Stillhouse Serenade And Pointers Revenge

Creekers Jamboree celebrates Roots and Americana music on the third Saturday of every month this Summer! Stillhouse Serenade and Pointers Revenge perform funtastic musical originals and favorites in the Gowanus Dredgers Boathouse, Free but donations are encouraged. In the mid 1800s, a Creeker & a Pointer were terms used for rival gangs of the Roosters, a band of thugs that frequented South Brooklyn and Gowanus. This season, the Gowanus Dredgers are reconnecting Gowanus regulars and visitors with our Canal by offering free canoe voyages starting 1pm and ending 5pm but stick around for some hootin' good times as the sun sets. Stillhouse Serenade Passionate champions of Traditional Blues, Hokum, Honky Tonk and Classic Country. “The music is spellbinding, thrilling, while mysteriously beautiful . . . at other times just plain fun. Time vanishes. Truly, magic occurs between the members of the band!" T Bone Barnett The band features the soulfully melodic harmonica and bass vocals of Trip Henderson; the guitar excellence and harmony vocals of Danny Weiss & Mary Olive Smith; the piano and accordion brilliance of Charlie Giordano; and making it all sway and swing is Jim Whitney on upright bass. You are guaranteed to revel in this evening of fun, soulful and virtuosic traditional music. Pointers Revenge A merry band of music makers who dabble in songs about unions, toxic waste, rivers, canals, murder ballads, as well as lascivious living in general. The group is composed of Ken Curtin and Liz Rabson with friends. Bring your singing voice there will be many loud rousing choruses sung this day. More Info
