Town Crier

WILMINGTON — Wilming­ton residents may soon have the opportunity to listen to a live mariachi band right here in town.

At a meeting on Nov. 27, the Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to ap­prove a request by Pancho’s Cantina to host mariachi performers on its slower business days, contingent upon approval by the building inspector.

Restaurant owner and liquor license manager Fon­zi Chavez explained that there are a few potential groups, and that any chosen would walk around the restaurant and play their instruments and sing. The acts would range from one performer to a group of three to four.

“It’s something unique, something different, and I do support it,” said Select­man Michael McCoy.

“I think it’s great, I can’t remember the last time we had a mariachi band in town,” added Selectman Greg Bendel.

Town Manager Jeffrey Hull noted that there is a requirement that, if the capacity exceeds 125, including staff, a licensed crowd control manager would need to be present during the time of the performance. The restaurant capacity is 150, with seating for 125.
