John Morgan Begins His “46th Happy Hour Summer” on Cape Cod….Hide the Children!

It all started back in 1967! John informed his mother that he’s off to play his guitar and sing on Cape Cod….but only for the summer. Needless to say for his thousands of Happy Hour fans…..the rest is history! He now jokingly admits he’s done over 7,000 live shows….three of which he was completely sober. Throughout his career, Cape Cod remained his musical base of operations, especially during summers but New England’s changing seasons helped him expand his Happy Hours to winter’s in Vermont performing at The North Country Fare at Mt. Snow and at too many college town bars and pubs to list throughout Massachusetts,  like in Amherst, Springfield, Worchester, Holyoke, etc. Over the years, he’s perfected his unique craft of music and humor…and he’s sounding better than ever! You can currently catch him at Ocean’s in Hyannis on Friday nights and at Jake Rooney’s in Harwich Port on Saturday nights. Congratulations John on another milestone and keep those memories and Happy Hours alive!!! Cheers, HH Parrot

Cape Cod, MA–Ground Zero for Happy Hours, Summer Fun & Unforgettable Memories!!

As seen from space, who would guess that this unique piece of land, reaching out into the Atlantic Ocean, has provided and continues to provide a lifetime of memories for generations of New Englander’s and other lucky visitors! It was immortalized in Patti Page’s 1957 hit…”Old Cape Cod”…who could forget the lyrics; “If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air……” From it’s beautiful beaches, world class seafood, fishing, boating and wild Happy Hours (at one time back in the ’70’s and ’80’s, it was the Happy Hour Capital of the World)…but alas, wild times may now have been tamed, due to severe dinking and driving laws, but “Oh, the tales the Cape could tell!”….HH Parrot
