Once again, on Tuesday, August 21st, 2018 it’s time to celebrate our community and the arts with Transperformance 28: AmperBands!, THE end-of-the-summer music festival at Pines Theater-Look Park. This year we will celebrate connection, collaboration and the power of performing together with Transperformance 28: Amperbands! Your favorite local acts will take the Pines Theater stage to perform 10 minutes of material from dynamic duos to famous families to superstars and their trusty backing bands. Featured AmperBands include:

Colorway as Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, The Mary Jane Jones as Ike & Tina Turner, Aloha Steamtrain as Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars, Steve Westfield and the Lonesome Brothers as Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Soul Magnets as Sly & the Family Stone, Fancy Trash as Paul McCartney & Wings, Zip Cody & Friends as Adam & the Ants, Appalachian Still as Steve Earle & the Dukes, King Radio as Simon & Garfunkel, Eric Olsson and Free Range Cats as Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention, Page Six as K.C & the Sunshine Band, Johnny Memphis Band as Toots & the Maytals, Wishbone Zoe as Siouxsie & the Banshees, Volstead Act as Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Flathead Rodeo as Bill Haley & the Comets, Bruce Mandaro as Derek & the Dominos, Jerks on the Loose as Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris.

Food will be available from La Veracruzana Mexican RestaurantBart’s Ice Cream and other local restaurants. Per request of Look Park: No Pets, No Coolers and No Beverages please. Look Park charges a $5 special events vehicle entry fee for all vehicles without season passes. A portion of the proceeds support arts enrichment programs in the Public Schools of Northampton, Leeds, and Florence.

Each year in August the Northampton Arts Council and the Parent Teacher Organizations of Northampton’s public school system join forces to raise funds for arts enrichment in the schools and for the ArtsEZ grant program.

The original concept for Transperformance was for local bands to take on a persona of another established nationally recognized act and perform or “Transperform” their bands’ style. The acts that are chosen are done thematically, such as Transperformance 22 “Food Groups” (Heather Maloney as Amy Winehouse) or Transperformance 17 “Color By Numbers” (Primate Fiasco as Pink Floyd) or Transperformance 23 “Beyond Bob” (Rusty Belle as Bob Dylan). Over the years Transperformance has evolved and tribute style performances have become acceptable if not the norm.

3rd Annual Happy Valley Half Marathon & 5K

We choose to live, to work, to train in Western Massachusetts, a mere speck on the map, because in many respects we appreciate and admire the beauty. The landscape embodies freedom…from the snow covered mountains to the incredible sunsets and sunrises and the impeccable scenery. The people culminate diversity…from the colored flags flying high through streets lined with boutique shops and ethnic restaurants, to the farmers cultivating vast and ever-bearing fields passed through generations of hard-working kin. We all are fortunate to call this incredibly giving place home. We walk and run the trails in admiration. We live with this cohesion and harmony that is truly second to none. And quite often, we gather to celebrate all that surrounds us, all that embodies each and every one of us in this “happy” valley. So, once more, we ask you to join us in celebrating what makes this community, this place, one of the most amazing representations of happiness and freedom this World can offer.

 

The Happy Valley Half Marathon was created by two people who are passionate about running, getting active, and living life to the fullest. Justin Killeen, owner of 50/50 Fitness/Nutrition in Hadley, MA., has teamed up with Western Mass native and certified running coach, Grant Ritter, to bring you a breath-taking course, designed to showcase some of the most beautiful roads that New England has to offer, during peak Fall foliage. This PR inducing course, the events to follow, and the passion that we exhibit will exhilarate runners and walkers alike…from first timers to seasoned pros. We are pulling out all of the stops to make this run, your run, year after year. New in 2017, the Happy Valley Half Marathon & 5K partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County, helping raise over $30,000!

 

Please note that we are unable to offer refunds.

 

*FREE Long Sleeve Tech Shirt for the first 100 registrants.*
