Thank You, We Did It!

Thank you so much for celebrating this with us. It’s been 40 years since the first official ROCK & ROLL RUMBLE at The Rat in 1979. Much has changed, that’s for sure. Please know our city is vibrant and full of great music. It’s being made in places like Allston and Somerville and Lowell and Salem too. Rock & Roll is alive. We have proven this. Let’s work to keep this excitement, energy, and camaraderie a constant presence in our community. Let’s take care of one another. Thank you for making this something we can be proud of. Until next time….


Thank you Rumble crew, thank you ONCE Somerville crew, Jack’s Abby team, each and every person who supported and attended this thing. 

And these 25 bands–and always the reason I do this. Thank you.
