Last night the Portside was ROCKIN!

We were very fortunate enough for the second time to have the "Gates Of Eden" come in from Tampa Florida to share their talents with some of our students. Rob Morris, Matt Poyner and Dylan Witkowski of "Gates Of Eden" and Matt Roth of "Calliope Musicals" came in for a visit with family and good friend, our Music Director Angelo Fusco. Well if you were driving past the Portside last night you would have heard them JAM it was great! The music students had a smile from ear to ear during their jam session. During their stay they will be playing at local venues. We are thankful to have such talented musicians showing our students some tricks of the trade and helpful pointers to further their musical abilities and enjoyment of their crafts.
We have recently started a Rob Morris Scholarship Fund which will give Children and Teens of limited resources the opportunity to learn and play music. To donate to this fund please contact the Portside.
Please see below locations they will be playing this weekend. See their website:
