PortaVia’s June Wednesday Residency with Mary Ann Palermo

PortaVia is a new restaurant in Dalton, Massachusetts that is quickly becoming a great live music venue, and The June Residency at PortaVia features Mary Ann Palermo each Wednesday in June, with music starting at 6:00 p.m., playing until 9:00 p.m. PortaVia has a surprisingly delightful menu specializing in wood-fired pizza, wings, and fresh Italian comfort food, and great people, and full bar service. 

Vocalist, songwriter, and recording artist Mary Ann Palermo will bring different musicians and different mixes of Jazz, R&B, Blues, Pop, and Rock to PortaVia across this month-long residency, and for Wednesday, June 7, guitarist Rich Homel and bassist Dan Broad will be joining her. These two musicians are back again on Wednesday, June 14, but with percussionist Sam Earnshaw along. The final two Wednesdays, June 21 and 28, will find guitarist Rich Homel and bassist Stephen Deitmann on board.

Dates and times are:

  • Wednesday, June 7, 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, June 14, 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, June 21, 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
