ABOUT BEVERLY'S HISTORIC LARCOM THEATRE

Less than 24 miles from Boston, the fully restored Larcom Theatre is conveniently situated in downtown Beverly, MA -- 3 miles from Route 128 at 13 Wallis Street, with plenty of free parking (see map).

This gracious showplace -- featuring spectacular acoustics -- was built in 1912 (the same year as Fenway Park) by Harris and Glover Ware, two brothers and former vaudeville musicians from Marblehead, MA.

For their new theatre, which offered both stage and screen entertainment, they chose the birth site of one of America's most widely read nineteenth century poetesses, Lucy Larcom.

The Larcom Theatre's grand opening advertised that its interior was lit completely by electricity.

In 1984, Cesareo Pelaez, award-winning founder of the Le Grand David stage magic ensemble, led the purchase and restoration of the Larcom Theatre, returning its elegant horseshoe balcony, hand-painted antique pressed tin ceilings and original silk wall coverings to their original glory.

Beginning with gimmeLIVE's sold-out 2013 Mardi Gras concert, the Larcom Theatre was filled with music for the first time since the days of Vaudeville.

In 2014, gimmeLIVE installed a new, state-of-the-art sound system featuring Meyer line arrays and subs, which is used for all concerts presented by gimmeLIVE.

Today, Peter & Vickie Van Ness of gimmeLIVE continue to showcase national recording stars and award-winning Boston area talent at the Larcom Theatre.

ABOUT THE PRODUCERS

Vickie and Peter Van Ness, founders of gimmeLIVE, have produced some of the largest and most critically acclaimed concerts and festivals on Boston's North Shore featuring national recording stars and award-winning young artists.

GIMMELIVE's award-winning 2015-2016 concert series at Beverly's fully-restored, historic Larcom Theatre features Rock n Roll icons and emerging talent you might want to keep your eye on -- Vickie & Peter have been known to spot stars in the making before.

In January 2016, GIMMELIVE expanded to Delray Beach, FL to help raise money for Old School Square beginning with a classic rock festival featuring Micky Dolens of the Monkees, Felix Cavaliere of the Rascals, Mark Farner formerly of Grand Funk Railroad, Steve Augeri of Journey, John Cafferty & Michael "Tunes" Antunes of the Beaver Brown Band.

A BRIEF HISTORY

In 2007, GIMMELIVE reunited the Pousette Dart Band for a Memorial Day Weekend Music & Arts festival that launched Celebrate Gloucester and the grand opening of Cruiseport Gloucester, Gloucester's very first cruise ship terminal.

After co-founding Gloucester's wildly successful summer Block Parties and producing several other major events (including Concert From the Heart featuring American Idol finalist Ayla Brown, which raised money for a local boy's much needed heart transplant) they produced Celebrate Gloucester 2010 featuring Charles Neville, Henri Smith, Roomful of Blues and local rising stars.

GIMMELIVE kicked off a Summer 2012 concert series at North Shore Music Theatre with Chris Isaak's U.S. tour, which introduced Chelsea Berry followed by Aaron Neville, with local singer/band-leader Henri Smith and the first Orleans concert in New England after original founder John Hall re-joined the band, featuring local legend Fly Amero.

In 2013, gimmeLIVE began presenting critically acclaimed concerts at Beverly's Larcom Theatre (the area's premier listening venue) starting with a sold-out Mardi Gras concert featuring Grammy-winner Charles Neville of the Neville Brothers with Henri Smith New Orleans Friends & Flavours followed by world-class artists, whose Larcom Theatre shows have garnered rave reviews.

In December 2013, gimmeLIVE packed Gloucester's iconic UU Church Meetinghouse for the first of a highly successful benefit concert series featuring top local talent and major recording stars, including John Sebastian, the first Rock n Roll Hall of Famer to perform in Gloucester.

During the summer of 2014, gimmeLIVE presented concerts on Martha's Vineyard at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown and in Gloucester aboard the Beauport Princess Cruise Ship and at the Waterfront Pavilion.

GIMMELIVE's 2014-2015 concert season at Beverly's Larcom Theatre featured award-winning, sold-out shows.

During the summer of 2015, Vickie and Peter began presenting national recording stars and award-winning Boston area talent at the newly re-opened Cabot Theatre in downtown Beverly.

Through gimmeLIVE, Peter & Vickie Van Ness continue to bring critically acclaimed entertainment to top intimate venues north of Boston.
