FRYEBURG, Maine — The Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center’s Bradley Backstage concert series will be presenting Al Hospers and Friends on Friday, Oct. 18, at 7:30 p.m. The band will be performing a vast selection of Hospers’ original rock, funk, blues and country tunes along with some re-imagined classics.

For more than 50 years, bassist Hospers has been a player, producer, composer and bandleader. He has performed with Blood, Sweat & Tears, Buddy Rich and with Mount Washington Valley locals for the past 22 years.

Hospers will be accompanied by an all-star lineup, featuring Mike Sakash, Jarrod Taylor, Steve Brown, Michelle Boggs, Craig Bryan, Jed Wilson, Mimi Rohlfing, Kemp Harris and Swamp Dog.

Bradley Backstage concerts ‘flip’ the theater by seating the audience on stage with the performers, creating a much more intimate and unforgettable live concert experience.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students. Order online at, or call the box office at (207) 935-9232.

The Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center is located at 18 Bradley St. in Fryeburg on the Fryeburg Academy campus.
