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

Will Hurricane Earl Close Cape Cod Bridges for Labor Day? John Morgan Has a Solution!!

This is not a new occurance for a seasoned Cape Cod resident! When the bridges are CLOSED and everyone is trapped on the Cape….John Morgan suggests it’s “TIME TO PARTY!” Forget work….and drink up my friends….hayooooooooo!!! John is still performing but to help tap into your memory banks, here’s a vintage photo from Pufferbellies back in the 80’s……HHParrot!

The Summer of 2010! Marks John Morgan’s 44th Year on Cape Cod….Three Generations of “Happy Hours” and Going STRONG!!

Makes me ponder how many broken guitar “G-strings” and Buddy Holly references that adds up to in his entertaining career to-date? One can only imagine! And gives new meaning to the Jimmy Buffett lyric from Margaritaville…”Don’t know the reason that I stayed (played) here all season,….!” Well, obviously John knows and has found a home on Cape Cod and his fans old and young….LOVE it and him!! You can catch him every Friday evening (7-9 pm) at Ocean’s Waterfront Saloon in Hyannis…Thanks for the memories John!! NOTE: Ocean’s has had a recent fire & John moved to the VFW in Hyannis, however, for most current scheduling it’s best to check his website at www.johnmorganhappyhour.com ….HH Parrot
