Danny Klein is one of the founding members of The J. Geils Band. This is classic J. Geils Band material with the unique sound that a group of veteran and talented musicians brings to it. Not your mama's cover band, for sure! Songs you will hear include: “Freeze Frame,” “I Do,” “Centerfold,” “Musta Got Lost,” “Love Stinks” “Houseparty” plus more.
Klein went to Worcester Poly Tech from 1964-1966 where he met J. Geils and Magic Dick. They formed a jug band, mostly acoustic music with Geils getting into electric guitar. He asked Klein if he wanted to play drums or bass. They decided on a washboard bass for Danny Klein and though the band went through "lots and lots of drummers," they eventually hooked up with ex-Hallucinations percussionist Stephen Jo Bladd and his vocalist, Peter Wolf. The formation of the official J. Geils Band began a long and historic rock & roll ride starting with 1970's self-titled Atlantic release, The J. Geils Band, up to 1984's You're Gettin' Even While I'm Gettin' Odd.
Danny Klein’s Full House will perform on the Main Stage, free of charge, Saturday October 8th at 7:30 PM. 
Jeff Gamache, Autumnfest Chairman says, “It’s going to be a real house party with the music of The J. Geils Band on Saturday night. We are also bringing new and varied acts this year. Visitors to Autumnfest will be pleasantly surprised by the different talent.”
Panfilov Performing Pet Show makes their 1st appearance at Autumnfest this year. Panfilov trained dogs (Jack Russell Terriers) and cats have been performing for audiences around the world since 2000. Andriy Bilobrov, trainer of the dogs says, “This is the most intelligent, fun and entertaining dogs in the world. They will be happy to meet you and surprise you with their ability and desire to show real circus tricks.” Mayya Panfilova’s genuine love of her performing house cats radiates from every gesture that she makes during her show. Proving that it is not only possible to train these independent, self-absorbed felines, Mayya demonstrates that the training and performance must be built on a foundation of love, care and concern. Few shows have this level of talent to delight and entertain the entire family from Grandma & Grandpa all the way to the 3 or 4-year old. Mayya and Her Performing House cats are the big finish to this great show. Panfilov Performing Pet Show will have 3 performances on the Main Stage at Autumnfest on Saturday October 8th at 2:30 PM, 4:30 PM, 6:30 PM and 2 performances on Sunday October 9th at 2:30 PM and 4:30 PM.
Also making his inaugural appearance at Autumnfest is Illusionist David Garrity. "IllusionQuest" is an exciting, family-oriented, magic and illusion spectacular! Illusionist David Garrity and his magic team appear out of thin air, pass through solid objects, perform lightning fast transpositions and may even make someone from the audience float in the air! The performance also features audience participation, situational comedy and is set to a custom-edited musical score! David has appeared on television, performed at hundreds of corporate events around the country and is a featured illusionist at Six Flags New England since 1992. David will perform on the Main Stage at Autumnfest on Saturday Oct. 8th at 3:30 PM and Sunday October 9th at 5:00 PM. He will also be making appearances on the Kidsfest stage Saturday and Sunday.
Autumnfest is held every Columbus Day Weekend (October 8, 9 & 10) at World War II Memorial Park, Social Street, Woonsocket.

An executive order that ends the policy of separating kids from their parents has been signed by President Trump. The President said his administration will continue enforcing a "zero tolerance" policy at the southern border. He noted that he did not like the sight of families being separated. Last week, the President told reporters that the separation policy could not be reversed with an executive order.        Former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe could be testifying before a group of senators. The Senate Intelligence Committee has sent both of them letters requesting testimony in both open and closed sessions. The testimony would likely revolve around the recently released Justice Department inspector general report that concluded the FBI mishandled the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.        A probe into the publisher of the National Enquirer is looking to determine whether there was an effort to suppress negative stories about President Trump ahead of the 2016 election. The "Wall Street Journal" reports that authorities issued a subpoena to American Media Inc. asking for details about its payment to a former Playboy model who claimed she had an affair with Trump. The Enquirer reportedly paid Karen McDougal 150-thousand-dollars for her story, but never published it.        [[ note nature ]]       The Secret Service has been made aware of a lewd tweet by actor Peter Fonda about President Trump's 12-year-old son, Barron. Fonda said Barron should be taken from his mother and put "in a cage with pedophiles." Fonda later apologized, admitting that he went too far in protesting the policy of separating immigrant children from their parents.       Disney is increasing its offer for the sports and entertainment units of 21st Century Fox. Disney announced this morning it's offer is now more than 71-billion-dollars in a cash-and-stock bid, up from an earlier bid of a 52-billion-dollar all-stock bid. Fox's board of directors is scheduled to meet today to decide whether to pursue Disney's offer or take a closer look at the bid by Comcast, which made an all-cash bid of 65-billion-dollars.       Factors such as technology, climate and culture likely influences a person's decision to get plastic surgery. A report from the American Society of Plastic Surgery explained where it's warmer out and the body is more exposed, breast argumentation tops the list of surgery requests out west along with butt implants in the Southeast. Colder cities in the Northeast favor male breast reduction surgeries while a Midwest doctor says lip reduction requests lead there since people are bundled up much of the year.
