Off Season: The Casino


There is no gambling here. The Hampton Beach Casino takes its name from the 19th century definition of casino: “gathering place.”

Appropriate, since The Casino is great place to see a show, almost year-round. Joe Bonamassa is performing here on Saturday, and Darius Rucker is slated, for Sunday. That ends their season.

I check out their schedule every year. I’ve seen people like Arlo Guthrie, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, John Hiatt (twice), Buddy Guy and even Steve Winwood perform here.

Its a wonderful small venue. When Buddy Guy played, he roamed the crowd playing his guitar, then busted out the back door and played a bit outside.

You don’t get that at arena shows.

On a completely different note, today is Veterans Day in the US. Please remember to thank a veteran (and any active military) for their service.

    Thanks Jim … I’m enjoying these shoots. Looking forward to capturing some winter images in the area.

    John, Yes. It takes an empty board walk for me to be the youngest there!
