About Pelham
The Town of Pelham Massachusetts was founded in 1743 and is located in Hampshire County.

Those in the area should visit the Swift River Valley Historical Society for a piece of town history. Also visit the Bears Den which is a 100 foot deep gorge that was carved by the swift river cascading off granite cliffs and this was also said to be the meeting place for Indian Tribes.

The town remains to be a quiet rural bedroom community.

Davina and the Vagabonds

Davina Sowers hit the Midwest scene in February 2005 and she hasnt looked back since. It didnt take her long after moving to Minnesota from Key West, FL to start making a name for herself. With great vocals and piano, she commands attention on stage and leaves everyone smiling. Davina has been performing since the age of 5, with the support of an extremely musical family. Sowers, a classically-trained pianist, has years of experience in piano performance. She and her band made a big splash at Duluths Bayfront Blues Festival in 2006 to2008, having the highest sales in CDs all three years. She has been called the hardestworking blues woman in frigid Minnesota. Two things remain consistent in all her shows: her throaty, but cushiony voice, which has a sort of hardmattress comfort to it thats part Bonnie Raitt, part Etta James and a little Amy Winehouse; and her bands rollicking New Orleans flavor, driven home by dueling horn players and a bayouthick standup bass. (CHRIS RIEMENSCHNEIDER, Star Tribune) Davina has already shared the stage with Little Feat, Buddy Guy, Elvin Bishop, The Lamont Cranston Band, The Blues Brothers, Joe Bonamassa, Irma Thomas and James Hunter, among others, at venues such as House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ and the Bayfront Blues Festival in Duluth, MN.

Popa Chubby

Up close and personal, it's the big guy, Popa Chubby.

Larger than life blues figure Popa Chubby has a lot of reasons to feel lucky this year. 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of his emergence as a powerful force in the venerable New York blues scene with his very own band, and his own unique brand of hard hitting, face melting, blues rock n funky soul. And hell celebrate this major milestone the only way he knows how, with the release of a smokin hot studio album Im Feelin Lucky - coming October 14 on Cleopatra Records and a series of shows on the West Coast!

Its been 25 years and Im still standing, declares Popa Chubby, and considering the long and rugged road hes had to travel, that in itself is a miracle. From his beginning in the late 70s as a bad kid with an afro and a brand new Gibson Midnight Special guitar to his stint as a punk rock sideman for Screaming Mad George and Richard Hell, among others, to signing a deal with Sony and releasing one of the top selling blues albums of 1994 (the phenomenal Booty And The Beast), Popa Chubby has seen it all and lived to tell about it on well over a dozen studio albums!

Boston Area - Sip for Sjogren's

Sip for Sjgren's is a fine water tasting and was created to provide an enjoyable experience that is directly tied to the disease itself. While Sjgren's patients suffer from a variety of debilitating symptoms, one of the most commonly known is dry mouth. This unique event will feature a tasting of fine bottled watersfrom around the world while also helping to increase awareness for Sjgren's and raise funds to further the research and awareness efforts of theSSF. The event will include a dessert reception and a silent auction.

What is Sjgren's & Who is the Sjgren's Syndrome Foundation

While best known as a disease that attacks the moisture producing glands in the body, Sjgren's is a systemic autoimmune disease that can affect any body system or organ. Many patients also experience extreme fatigue and joint pain. Sjgren's is the second most prevalent autoimmune disease in the U.S, with an estimated four million individuals affected, making it three times more common than better known related diseases such as Lupus and Multiple Sclerosis. However, Sjgren's remains relatively unknown and is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with the average time from the onset of symptoms to diagnosis being five years. The Sjgren's Syndrome Foundation is the only patient advocacy organization that serves Sjgrens patients and their healthcare providers, provides support to patients and their families, increases public and professional awareness and encourages research into new diagnostics and treatments.
