Music on tap at downtown eateries
17 State Street Cafe’s “Beats, Burgers and Brews” will feature Benjamin Eramo today and Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards tomorrow.
Eramo has been playing the piano since the age of 4 and is a student at Triton High School in Byfield, where he is in the jazz band, concert band and men’s choir. He is also a sound recording technician and teaching assistant for the middle school jazz band.
