Last year's entertainment was provided by CuppaGroove. CuppaGroove is a Maine-based Rhythm and Funk band that performs a pleasing blend of styles and musical genres. Formed in 2014, the band is centered in Freeport where they rehearse and record originals and selected covers. Styles include propulsive Motown R&B, soaring guitar rock, snappy funk, and a dash of tasty jazz; all performed with great vocals and a rock solid groove. CuppaGroove gets the crowd moving with their signature groove, outstanding musical chops, a little humor, and a growing collection of powerful, Maine-based originals. Please check back for updated entertainment information. Visit CuppaGroove for more band info, photos and gig calendar.

Look for CuppaGroove in the gazebo between 1:00 and 2:30 p.m.
