Welcome to the April issue of lemonade. As the crocus and daffodils are popping up and multiplying around us, so are the events and activities in Newport this month. Below are a few suggestions for you to come out of hibernation and explore the season. 


If you enjoy lemonade, please consider to your family and friends. And don't forget to share YOUR good news on our Facebook fan page, we'd love to hear from you! 


Happy Spring!

Sidney Green Street Band

all ears

You need to hear this new CD by my "brothers of other mothers", Justin Jordan, Steve Holley, Paul Page & Lance Doss aka: The Sidney Green Street Band. This release, the Mall Tease Fall Can, is Southern rock meets Jersey jam in a cover set played by four of New York's finest rock/blues musicians - captured live and on first takes. Gve it a listen--  if you like the Dead, the Stones, the Allmans, etc., you're gonna love these guys as much as we do! 


For live music this month, The Narrow's Center for the Arts in Fall River has Steve Fobert (4/2), Dave Mason (4/7), Janis Ian (4/8), John Popper (4/28), Rickie Lee Jones (4/30) and many more this month.
