As a resident of Melrose for the past 35 years, Jim Santangelo has used both music and photography as hobbies and forms of personal therapy of sorts. He brings a combination of some of his favorite music by other artists from the last forty years or so as well as original songs to the stage along with stories tying it all together. Jim says if he ever writes his memoirs he would “borrow” the title from Jerry Garcia and call them “What a long strange trip it’s been.” Audience participation is encouraged so come out and sing along with any of the songs you may recognize.
