Check out the Coco Butter Band at this Friday's Summer Music Series event

This Friday night, stop by the Children's Plaza to check out Phoenixville's own Coco Butter Band. The Coco Butter Band is an original 2-man blues/funk/soul band based out of Phoenixville who perform all over the Philadelphia and surrounding areas. The band features Liam Bouterre on keyboards/vocals and his brother Nate "Coco" Maskeri on drums/vocals. After years of playing as "musicians for hire" in various bands, in April of 2013 Liam and Coco decided to form their own band with Liam playing bass lines and soloing on the organ and Coco holding down the groove, all while singing. They are currently in the process of taking over the Philly original music scene playing many popular music venues, local festivals, and bars. Their talent and infectious groove was noticed by internationally touring blues/rock band, Trampled Under Foot (TUF), who invited them to open for their CD release party in Kansas City for 1,200 fans and to sit in with them at The House of Blues in Chicago. Coco Butter Band's goal is to continue to write great music for great people.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
