Hear the Soggy Po' Boys at the Library on March 20!

The Friends of the Library are delighted to sponsor a New Orleans style jazz concert on Tuesday, March 20th at 7pm by Dover’s own Soggy Po’ Boys. Born on a snowy Fat Tuesday night of 2012, the Soggy Po' Boys have been honing their craft of New Orleans music  in their home town of Dover, New Hampshire. The New Orleans-flavored band plays more than a hundred shows every year, from festivals and concerts, to politics-infused burlesque collaborations and street parades.  We believe that this is their first time in a public library and we promise it will not be quiet once the joint starts rockin’! Please join us for some great music!
The performance is free and will be held in the Library’s Lecture Hall. For more information, call the Dover Public Library at (603) 516-6050.
