* FOREWORD WRITTEN BY LEGENDARY HALL OF FAMER FELIX CAVALIERE!
“Historic Connecticut Music Venues: From the Coliseum to the Shaboo” pays tribute to the many landmark music venues that have featured national, regional, and local performers.
While some of the locations have closed, they have certainly not been forgotten. The New Haven Coliseum, the Arena, and the Bushnell Memorial were once the places to be for music lovers, while elsewhere places like the Cheri Shack, and the Shaboo hosted national and local headliners.
Other venues such as Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun, the Meadows, Café Nine, and Toad’s Place have now taken center stage and continue to attract large crowds.
With in-depth interviews with performers and numerous timeless photos, this book takes you on a nostalgic and fun journey of the Nutmeg State’s music scene.

Sometimes when you’re a legend, you have the ability to impact people in ways that even you can’t imagine. Such is the case for Waterbury’s Joan Joyce, who at age 80 continues to discover just how inspirational her athletic career has been.
Joyce, whose athletic exploits have motivated thousands of girls and young women to embrace their athletic dreams, has now inspired a musical about her incredibly successful career as a nationally renowned softball player, basketball player and professional golfer. - Republican-American, by Roger Cleaveland
