John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. One-Hundred Watt Suns. Soul Searchers. Green Tea. These are just a few of the bands played in previously by members of the Troublemakers, who will headline Mystic Museum of Art’s  family-friendly Art After Dark concert from 6-8:30PM on Tuesday, July 18. The event, held under the tent at MMoA’s riverfront terrace, will also include drinks, Pizzetta pizza, live art by Leif Nilsson, and balloon art by April Brunelle.

The Troublemakers are returning for an encore performance. The veteran sextet includes Ronnie Lewis and Don “DC” Culp, Dan Sherer, keyboards, Bill Light and Josh White, guitars, and Marty Moroney, bass.

Inspired by the natural beauty of the Lower Connecticut River Valley, Leif Nilsson paints plein air impressionistic landscapes, with a focus on his hometown of Chester. Nilsson studied at Lyme Academy of Fine Arts and has traveled and painted widely in Scandinavia, Asia, and Europe. In addition to his own gallery in Chester, Nilsson has exhibited at the Essex Art Association, Lyme Academy, Raymond Gallery, and Marmara Gallery. Nilsson received a Best in Show in 2014 from MMoA, then the Mystic Arts Center, and the 2015 Award of Merit from the Salmagundi Club in New York.

April Brunelle began creating balloon art in 2010, and has performed at Fusion, the Mudhead Benefit Regatta, and numerous Art After Dark events.
