The Infractions Set to Play Thursday at The Gazebo
MAP will host "The Infractions" on June 23 at the Gazebo in Medfield as part of MEMO's Summer Concert Series.
The Medfield Afterschool Program, MAP, will be hosts for “The Infractions,” at the June 23 Concert At the Gazebo, sponsored by MEMO, The Medfield Employers and Merchants Organization, and its corporate sponsor Needham Bank.
All Thursday concerts begin at 6 p.m. and are family friendly. The surrounding park, adjacent to the library, is perfect for picnics from home or a light supper purchased at nearby food establishments. The atmosphere is casual so bring chairs and blankets and the kids, who are welcome to dance and sing with the bands.
The seven-member Infractions ensemble, started in 1990, features a three-piece horn section known as “the Happening Horns” and a four-piece rhythm section. The band’s music ranges from Funk and Hip Hop to contemporary Ska and Swing combined with 70’s and 80’s favorites.
Infractions founder Brian Stratton is a record producer, educated at Berklee School of Music and the Conservatory of Music. His music has been placed in both movies and TV shows. Newest member, Tony Rocks, is also Berklee College educated in guitar and is a songwriter and a producer. He has recorded with many top performing artists including Peter Wolf, Jonzun Crew and New Kids on the Block to name just a few. The group has been included in past Boston Marathon events, MLB All-star Game at Fenway Park and celebrity golf tournaments as well as Boston’s Homeless Annual Gala at the Avalon. It has been a mainstay in the nightclub, college, wedding and concert scene for more than seven years. Additional information and sounds may be found on the band’s new website, www.infractions.com.
On June 30 “Horns in the House” returns to the Gazebo Stage and will be hosted by Borchers Law P.C. This group provides more favorites with the Gazebo audience.
