We on Cape Cod talk a lot about the harbingers of spring and summer like the daffodils, the herring and the re-opening of our favorite clam shacks. Add to that the unveiling of the acts for the new season of the Cape Cod Melody Tent and the day those tickets go on sale.

Through the years the Melody Tent in Hyannis has seen a steady stream of talent cross its little rotating stage. Rarely can you get so up close and personal with the stars and this season is no exception.

Some of this year's acts are veterans of the Hyannis stage, while others will be making their Melody Tent debut. 2014 is the year of something for everybody with a little country (Martina McBride, Jennifer Nettles and Trace Adkins), a little rock (Extreme and 3 Doors Down), some comedy (Bill Cosby, Amy Schumer and Nick Swardson), some oldies (Frankie Valli & the Four Season and The Moody Blues) and something for the kids (The Kaleidoscope Theatre). The Melody Tent will again be hosting the WCOD Cape Cod Chowder Festival on June 22 and will be expanding its festive vibe with the 1st Annual Melody Tent Brewers Festival on August 10.

Tickets are already on sale for several of the concerts and special pricing and the ability to nab the best tickets is an advantage of the Gold Circle Club.

Although a stellar line-up already, this season's schedule is by no means complete. Be sure to visit the Melody Tent's website and sign up for the newsletter to get the latest show information.
