ABOUT THE PRODUCERS

Vickie and Peter Van Ness
Vickie & Peter Van Ness

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 The Larcom Theatre featured 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 produced a Classic Rock Festival featuring Micky Dolenz of the Monkees, Felix Cavaliere of the Rascals, Mark Farner -- founder of Grand Funk Railroad, Steve Augeri -- Journey's former lead singer, John Cafferty & Michael "Tunes" Antunes of the Beaver Brown Band. The festival raised thousands of dollars for the educational programs at Old School Square in Delray Beach FL.

Many of gimmeLIVE's concerts and festivals raise money for good causes. Click here if you'd like us to produce a concert or festival to raise money for your organization.

GIMMELIVE has just announced the first few shows of their 2016-2017 season at The Larcom Theatre. Click here to join our mailing list -- you'll get new show announcements, special deals and prime seats before tickets go on sale to the general public.

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 presented a series of concerts featuring 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.

Larcom Theatre Concerts

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 brothers Harris and Glover Ware (vaudeville musicians from Marblehead, MA) on the birth site of their favorite poet, Lucy Larcom.

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

During its 104 year history, The Larcom Theatre has presented stage, screen and musical entertainment. In 1984 the Larcom Theatre's elegant horseshoe balcony, hand-painted antique pressed tin ceilings and original silk wall coverings were restored to their original glory by Le Grand David magic company, who presented their award-winning magic show there until the company's founder, Cesareo Pelaez, died in 2012.

Beginning with gimmeLIVE's sold-out 2013 Mardi Gras benefit concert, Vickie and Peter Van Ness filled the Larcom Theatre 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 at The Larcom Theatre.

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