Star power in Marlborough

MARLBOROUGH

Charles Neville of the Neville Brothers will be performing at the Firehouse Center in Marlborough on Saturday night, part of a huge transformation of the building from a problem spot to cultural venue.

The city-owned building has been under renovation by local vocational school students for the last several years and city officials have been at odds over whether to sell it. This summer, the former fire engine bays have been home to live performances by regional musicians.

Neville will appear with the Henri Smith/Nat Simpkins Band, which includes Hudson music teacher David Hearst and Maynard basist Rick Maida. The event is free and starts at 7 p.m. The firehouse is located at the intersection of Main and Bolton streets.
