East Boston Main Streets Highlights Acoustic on Main May 1-10


BOSTON – May 4, 2015 – Max Gruner, Executive Director, East Boston Main Streets invites East Boston businesses to participate in “Acoustic on Main,” a 10-night event in Boston’s Main Streets Districts during Small Business Week. From May 1-10 Main Streets businesses are encouraged to host local acoustic performances with up to 5 instrumental or vocal performers from 4 pm to 9 pm. Participating businesses will not be required to apply for a live entertainment license or pay a fee to the City to hold the performances.

“This winter was very difficult for Boston’s small businesses,” said Mayor Walsh. “Now that Spring has arrived, we are excited to enliven our Main Streets districts with music to support our local businesses while also supporting our local musicians. Consider shopping locally and taking in a performance during Acoustic on Main and empower our neighborhoods to thrive.”

"Our local small businesses open their doors to the community in sun or snow - they anchor our neighborhoods and make Boston welcoming and vibrant,” said Councilor Michelle Wu. “After a hard winter, let's spend time in our Main Streets districts supporting our small businesses and enjoying live music throughout the city!”

"This past winter took a heavy toll on the entire City, but no one was affected more than small business owners,” said Councilor Sal Lamattina. “I believe that Acoustic on Main is the perfect remedy to help each business recoup their losses. So far it seems to be extremely popular and I hope that every resident takes advantage of this unique opportunity and encourage them to spend one night this week patronizing a small business and investing in their success".

“This is a great opportunity to showcase acoustic performers and to highlight our thriving business district by connecting musicians to business owners. We encourage East Boston residents and visitors alike to shop our local businesses, eat at our local restaurants, and cheer on our local musicians. Small businesses truly are the catalyst for so much positive change in our community – let’s get out and support them while also supporting local live music,” explains Max Gruner, Executive Director of EBMS.

Businesses and musicians who wish to participate can register at the Acoustic on Main website, and businesses hosting events are also welcome to submit those events to the City of Boston’s online calendar.  As the schedule develops, members of the public will also be able to find events in their neighborhood, and are encouraged to follow and engage with the event using #AcousticOnMain.  The Acoustic on Main website will be updated with a Map of Main Streets information, as well as with an events calendar with confirmed performances.

Acoustic on Main is made by possible by a partnership between City Councilor Michelle Wu, the City Council’s Committee on Arts & Culture, the City Council’s Committee on Small Business, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, the City of Boston’s Office of Business Development, the Mayor’s Office of Arts & Culture, and the Mayor’s Office of Consumer Affairs and Licensing. For more details or questions please call Max Gruner, Executive Director of East Boston Main Streets at 617-561-1044.
