After being dark for too long to remember, The Elm in Downtown Waterville hosted one of the region’s favorite entertainers, Bob Marley, last Friday, June 11, 2021. It was a sold out show that will go down in history as the first big show at the venue after emergence from the quarantine caused by the pandemic.
Seen on Leno, Letterman, Conan, Ferguson and Jimmy Fallon, Marley is one of the few comedians to have performed the Late Night Circuit as well as dozens of other TV appearances. A favorite on Sirius and XM radio, Marley also played Detective Greenly in both Boondock Saints Films. Considered ‘New England’s King of Comedy’ Marley holds the Guinness book record for the Longest Standup Performance by an individual at 40 hours straight.
Bill Mitchell, co-founder and owner of The Elm, is looking forward to safely welcoming more patrons in the coming week after the successful Bob Marley performance.
“We couldn’t think of a better performer to re-open our doors after what has been a difficult year for anyone in the events / performing arts / live music space. We are excited to announce some new upcoming shows and are now accepting new bookings for private events. We will be adhering to all of the recommended health and safety protocols, however encourage all patrons to get both vaccinations before enjoying a night out at The Elm,” Mitchell said.
