Academy Award winning actor Billy Bob Thornton and his band The Boxmasters will hit The Criterion Stage in August!

The Boxmasters, fronted by Thornton, who won an Academy Award for his movie Sling Blade, will kick out the very hot country flavored rockabilly jams on Friday night, August 3rd.

The band has been in business since 2007 and has released five albums, with the latest being "Speck."   Why is it called Speck?  "Because we're all specks in the universe", said Thornton recently.

Tickets for the show at the historic Criterion on Cottage Street in Bar Harbor start at $35.50 and go as high as $60.50.  More information is available HERE!
