Good beer and great music are the keys to success for most bars. For The Dive Bar on Green Street, they have paid careful attention to both when starting The Dive Bar Thursday Music Series (“Dive Thursday”) just under four years ago. Founded by Dive Bar and Armsby Abbey owner, Alec Lopez, along with Worcester music legend Duncan Arsenault, both decided to bring musicians in each week (over 50 musicians have performed to date) and make some great music. Combining the best aspects of a jam band and a house band, the rotation of musicians have provided a true experience on Thursdays.
On June 9th, Dive Thursday will be celebrating it’s 200th Thursday with Craig Rawding (vocals, harp), Brooks Milgate (B3), Paul Buono (keys), Jon Short (guitar, vocals), Dmitry Gorodetsky (bass), BT (trombone), Pete Levesque (sax) and Duncan Arsenault (drums). Weather permitting; the outdoor beer garden will be a welcome way to enjoy the music.
In addition to the music, Dive Bar will be celebrating the launch of Sixpoint Brewing Company’s new 16oz Nano Kegs with Sweet Action, Righteous, Bengali and Crisp Pils being available! The Dive Bar is known for it’s low profile and great selection of beers on tap, including but not limited to: The Bruery Mischief, Firestone Walker Dbl Jack, Founders Old Curmudgeon, Haverhill Hoppy as Helles, Victory Summer of Love, Pretty Things Field Mouse, Allagash Victoria and Clown Shoes Belgian IPA. Looking for Coors Light? Not here. Nor does The Dive Bar accept credit cards.
Some of the 50+ musicians that have played at Dive Thursday include, Hugh Allen, Helen Beaumont, Jeff Burch, John Cooke, Anne Eggleston, Troy Gonyea, Dino Govoni, Pete Levesque, Shana Morrison, Scott Ricciuti, DJ Shame, Zack Slik, Chuck Vath, and Al Vaudreuil.
