Funky Divas Concert

DOVER - Fridays LIVE at the First presents its second concert on Fri., May 30, at 7:00 p.m. This concert will feature The Funky Divas of Gospel, Nice & Naughty, and Sydney Evans. Concerts will be held in the historic First Parish Church, 218 Central Ave., Dover.

The Funky Divas of Gospel is a collaboration of four vocalists and a 4-piece band whose purpose is to share great music. The spirit that flows through their songs goes back to the roots of music itself and tells stories as old as time. They are performers who love entertaining audiences and whose music is hard rockin’, reflective toe tapping and hand clapping. It can and does move audiences to their feet and into the aisles to dance.

Naughty & Nice, a duo from Exeter consisting of Peg Chaffee and Cheryl Sager, performs original music which speaks to all aspects of everyday life. Accompanied by stand-up bass, guitar and pennywhistle, their exquisite harmonies are the highlight of their performance. Their repertoire is eclectic, from touching and sentimental (nice) to saucy (naughty). Rounding out the performers for this concert is Sidney Evans, a local young lady from Rochester, singing and playing ukulele.

Donations are $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children 12 and under, and $25.00 for families. The church is fully handicapped accessible. For more information, call (603) 742-5664.

The next concert in the series will be held on Fri., June 27, at 7:00 p.m., and will feature the handbell choir Cast in Bronze from Ohio.
