The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston

Facebook Twitter


Since its inception in 1996, the vision of the Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston has been to create an organization dedicated to promoting the varied expressions of creativity in the realm of fine arts. One focus of this vision is to expose adults and children alike to the many diverse forms of art that exist in and around Thomaston, CT such as theater, music, dance, writing, painting, photography and many more.

It is recognized that the arts serve to assist a person in experiencing a greater satisfaction with life, either as a member of an audience or as a participant. The audience can listen to or observe and absorb what the artist has presented, while the participant can express his or her inner soul through the music, camera eye, dance, or canvas. No matter how one experiences the arts, experiencing them is paramount to one’s enjoyment of life, for life, in itself, is art.
SUMMER CONCERT SERIES 2019 continues on Monday, July 22nd at Seth Thomas Park – 7:00 p.m.

This week’s concert will bring back a favorite from last year…so break out your old tie-dyed clothes from the 60’s and sing along with tunes from the past.

60's Satisfaction

Relive the era we all loved with Pierce Campbell on guitar and vocals, Tony Pasqualoni on bass, Loren Evarts on piano and vocals and John Rispoli on drums. This hot band of high level pro musicians, who have been playing together in an assortment of bands since the ’80s, will have you on your feet singing and dancing from start to finish and leave you smiling at the end of the show!

The band started in June of 2015 after being asked to play The New Haven Arts Council’s 50 Year Anniversary Party on Audubon St in New Haven. It was a ’60s themed party and the council was having trouble finding the right band for the event. Pierce suggested his classic rock band, The Scramble, which already knew many 60’s songs. With a bit of rehearsal, and about 15 strategic new songs added, they could play an entire night of ’60s music. He re-named the group for the event, 60s Satisfaction, and the party was a huge success. Both the band and the audience had such a great time, the guys said,” Ya know, maybe we should do this more often, let alone, we already owned the tie dye t-shirts,” and as they say, the rest is history. ’60s Satisfaction was born.

The band picked up several more shows right away through Pierce’s contacts in CT Park and Rec organizations and they were off and running. One administrator commented that the group was the perfect band for people who come out to summer concerts. ‘60s Satisfaction has top notch players, is fun, upbeat, and everyone can sing along. What more can you ask of a summertime concert!
