Hats Off

Listen To Song

Written by Billy Simons & Damien Goudreau
Performed by: Damien Goudreau

Hats Off was written 10 years ago to commemorate all of the men and women that have served our country. It’s about taking your hat off at a ballgame to honor the commitments and sacrifices that have been made to uphold and protect our freedom. In recent years, several high profile protests involving the national anthem have taken place. However, this song was not written in response to these protests nor was it intended to be polarizing or controversial. Simply put, this song was written to say thank you to all of those that have served and to encourage people to stand and take their hats off during the playing of the national anthem.

32A

Listen To Song

Those of you who frequent our Open Mics will surely recognize the soothing voice on the song 32A as none other than Bill Cole. Bill and his friends were actually the very first ticketed concert held in the Grand Hall. He and his wife Chris live on 32A. This song starts and ends referencing the demise of the towns that made up the Quabbin Reservoir. It’s a reminder of all the people who had to leave their homes and communities to make room for the reservoir. Deb Deschamps accompanies Bill on this song

Where It All Began

Listen To Song

Where It All Began is a song about all the small towns like Ware who struggle to better themselves. Most of us who grew up in Ware will especially relate to this song as we use images from years gone by. The lesson we’ve learned witnessing the growth over the years is “nothing is free, you’ll pay for it eventually in one way or the other”. You’ll recognize the amazing vocals performed by our very own Deb Deschamps, and Charlie Lask – they are both a perfect example of the level of talent we have here in Ware!
