Becki’s Blog: Mashpee Calendar of Events

You may have noticed a few changes to the layout of the Mashpee Chamber website. One of the biggest additions we have made is a calendar of events, which I have been working on for the past month and half. The calendar of events consists of not only Mashpee Chamber events, but other events that appear in the Mashpee

Magazine as well. Right now, you are probably wondering why we are adding a calendar of events if we already have them listed in the guidebook. Great question! I misplace things and can’t find them until months, even a year or two, later. By that point, the information that I was once looking for is most likely irrelevant. In the case of the Mashpee Magazine, we have so many events listed between June and August, that having that at your fingertips is very important. But, if you lose it, you can still refer to our upcoming events on the Mashpee Chamber website so that event won’t be a thing of the past once you find the event you’re interested in.

Working on the calendar of events is more than just submitting entries, it’s a lot of work involved. First, I have to find the business’ information that’s hosting the events and then the vendor. If there is no information on the Mashpee Chamber website, I have to do some research so I can enter it myself. If there are recurring events through the season, I have to duplicate the original event entry, edit the hyperlink, and change the date. I try to be as consistent and detailed as possible.

The Mashpee Chamber of Commerce is a small, local business that serves the community. We want to reach out to as many citizens and visitors as possible, especially during the busy summer season here on Cape Cod. We know people want to find things to do and can only do so when they know where and what to look for. Hopefully, the Calendar of Events will help people find what they are interested in and draw more participants to our events and events going on around the Upper Cape.

You can access the Mashpee Chamber Calendar of Events below.

  • Las Caféteras at Cotuit Center for the Arts
    7:30 PM-10:00 PM
    09/06/18

    Las Caféteras, a multi-genre roots-based band from East Los Angeles, will perform Saturday, June 9, at 7:30 PM, at Cotuit Center for the Arts.

    The Los Angeles Times described Las Caféteras as “magnetic,” playing a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia, and rock.” Their music fuses spoken word and folk music with traditional Son Jarocho music, Afro-Mexican music, and zapateado dancing, while delivering a positive message. Singing in English, Spanish, and Spanglish, they use music to build bridges among different cultures and communities and create “a world where many worlds fit.”

    Members of the band, born in this country of Mexican immigrant parents, originally came together 13 years ago over their shared political commitments. At the East Side Café, they studied traditional Son Jarocho Afro-Mexican folk music from Veracruz, Mexico and learned to play the jarana (a compact guitar-like instrument), requinto (a small guitar with a higher pitch than a standard guitar), quijada (donkey jawbone), tarima (a wooden platform that serves as a rhythm instrument), and other traditional instruments.

    They soon created a vibrant sound all their own. With Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes, they sing inspiring stories of a community seeking love and justice. When it came time to choose a name for the group, Las Caféteras was a natural, honoring the place where they came together and frequently performed.

    Las Caféteras has played with such bands as Mexican icons Caifanes, Lila Downs, Colombian superstar Juanes, Los Angeles legends Ozomatli, folk/indie favorites Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and most recently with Talib Kweli.

    The group also conducts workshops across the country on the issues they sing about: racism, gender inequality, cultural oppression, and other concerns.

    Tickets are $35, $30 for balcony seating. There is a $2 discount for seniors and veterans, and a $5 discount for members. For more information and to purchase tickets visit artsonthecape.org or call 508-428-0669. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit.
