Mountain Park: New England’s Finest Amphitheatre
Eric Suher’s claim is true….this new venue with seating on the hill, a gorgeous sweep of lawn, and all that you need for a great day of ourdoor music is the finest in New England. I spoke with him as he jumped down off a golf cart, welcoming friends and music fans to this, his most ambitious music venue yet.
There’s unlimited space up here, I mean, thousands and thousands of people could be up here watching a Springsteen or a Rolling Stones show. Well that might be pushing it, but the physical space and the acoustics are perfect. The stage is easy to see, the parking isn’t that far, and the concessions include $6 Magic Hats and $3 burgers. What’s not to love?
“I’d love to do free shows up here, every week,” Eric said. “Over there, beyond the buildings, we’ll have a midway, with rides and stuff for kids. We can do anything up here, it’s so wide open.” Knowing that he’s not one for false promises, my chat with Mountain Park’s re-creator was inspiring. I can’t wait to see next year’s line up, I know it will be very impressive!
