Closing Time "Band version"

Well folks! Sorry to say that December 16, 2016 at Capone’s will be our last show as the current formation of Don’t Call Me Shirley.  We don’t know what the future may hold for DCMS at this time.  

It has certainly been an amazing ride!  We’ve met so many “wicked fun” people along the way, from as far south as Mystic, CT to as far north as Phippsburg, ME and as far west as Springfield, MA.  From humble beginnings at the Rock Pond Restaurant to big events at Smith & Wesson and the Basketball Hall of Fame, not to mention the height of our summer this year on the Beauport Princess with 340 of our closest friends, we have truly been blessed.

We couldn’t have taken the ride we did without the support of all of you!!  We’ve all had an incredible journey together.  This doesn’t mean it’s over, it just means that new beginnings are in the making.  So thank you to all of you who have supported us in any shape or form throughout our 16 year run.

We love you and we are Shirley Serious!

Rock On,


Kevin, Ron, Matt & Mark

NEW ! Shirley's interview with North Shore Magazine November 2014


"Guys, we were driving home last night and thought we would stop at rock pond to see our favorite band play a few songs. 11:30 and the parking lot was full and cars were parked on the side of 97! Way to go! We've never seen it hopping like that!!! Congrats on another fantastic gig. You guys are so much fun and obviously the word is out! Good for you!" ............ Quote from a Shirley Fan

Nielsen's deadpan response to the question "Surely, you can't be serious?" with "I am serious -- and don't call me Shirley" helped launch a second career.

Don’t Call Me Shirley plays contemporary, popular, and classic hits from the 1950’s to today’s favorites.  We play popular music from a cross section of many genres and decades. DCMS is "a wicked fun band" that entertains music lovers with a wide range of tastes from Elvis Presley & Johnny Cash of the 50' to The Beatles & The Stones of the 60's, from The Doobie Brothers & Creedence Clearwater Revival of the 70's to Billy Idol & Tommy Tutone of the 80's, from Sublime & Matchbox 20 of the 90's to Ben Harper and Bare Naked Ladies of the 00's, and Foster The People & Neon Trees of the 10's.  Shirley is a truly entertaining party band for the local lounge or the backyard blow-out, your favorite night club or a surprise party to remember. Check out our unique and signature Mash-Ups.
