Agawam Cultural Council’s Popular Applause Series Closes Out Year

with Rock & Roll Dance Party by The Skid Marks


The Agawam Cultural Council’s popular Applause Series brings back the era of drive-ins, poodle skirts, bobby socks, and hula hoops when The Skid Marks take the stage at the Agawam Senior Center at 7:00 PM on Friday, December 4 with hits from the 1950’s and early 60’s.

The Skid Marks have been performing at festivals and entertaining audiences across the United States for over 25 years. They bring a freshness to the tunes you remember from your youth — or, if you’re real young, have just “discovered” and transport listeners back to simpler times.

The Skidmarks are the “real deal” – five very talented musicians who perform the music of the 50’s and early 60’s with an edge. The current lineup is made up of Jeffrey Ray “Jelvis” Gauthier on guitar, Mark “McLennon” Kolnicki on bass and vocals, “Buddy Rick” Pierce on drums, guitar, bass, piano, and vocals, Mark “Slim Perkins” Rege and “Chubby” Chet Kurr on vocals, alto sax, tenor sax, and piano.

The Agawam Senior Center is located at 954 Main Street in Agawam, Massachusetts and can be reached by phone at (413) 821-0604. This and all Applause Series events are free and open to the public.

Additional information on each of the Applause Series events is available at the Agawam Cultural Council web site, www.agawamcc.org

The Agawam Cultural Council is an all-volunteer local partner of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and is funded, in part, by the MCC.  The ACC is charged with bringing engaging, entertaining, and educational events and opportunities in the arts, humanities, and sciences, to children and adults from Agawam and the surrounding communities.
